It’s Show Time with Ambika Anand

Compiled by Shreya Karunakaram and Tamanna Sheth

The editor-in-chief of NDTV Good Times divulges her style secrets and gives us all the dope on living the good life

You couldn’t have missed Ambika Anand’s style policing on I Am Too Sexy for My Shoes, or her wedding planning in Band Baaja Bride. Labelled as one of the best anchors on television, the editor-in-chief of NDTV Good Times is equally smooth when it comes to fashioning her own wardrobe. The dapper style icon (who was also a part of our Best-Dressed list in 2009 and 2010) gives us a lowdown on her style file.

1. Style philosophy… “Be ever evolving, don’t be too predictable.”

2. Greatest inspiration… “Diana Vreeland, Beyonce and Narendra Modi.”

3. Fashion essentials… “Prescription dark glasses, kurtas by 11.11 and Divya Sheth.”

4. Favourite pieces in your closet… “My yoga pants, shorts and a white shirt.”

5. Go-to designers… “Amit Aggarwal and Shantanu & Nikhil.”

6. Style from the past that inspires you… “Everything about the 60s and 70s. The pop colours, the hairdos, the eyeliner and the hippie spirit.”

7. Latest buys… “O.P.I nail paint, a pencil skirt from Shivan & Narresh and a trunk table from Nappa Dori.”

8. Your latest beauty discovery is… “Kumkumadi oil by Kama Ayurveda.”

9. Shows that you are addicted to…The Americans, Scandal, The Good Wife, The Royals and House of Cards.”

10. Must-haves apps on your phone… “I use The Health App because it measures the kilometers I walk or jog. I love combining Instagram, Photogrid and Instaquote. Flipboard and Net-a-Porter help me stay up-to-date with news, style and shopping. ”

11. Your biggest learning has been… “That the early bird catches the worm.”

12. On your bucket-list… “Travel incessantly, write a book and direct a film!”
