Having already won a place on Bollywood’s Best-Dressed list, Deepika Padukone has now launched a clothing line with Van Heusen and has also turned designer for the brand. Deepika reveals her fashion secrets.
My fashion philosophy: I wear what I believe in, what suits my personality and my body type and what I can carry off. For me, fashion is not what people in the fashion world are dictating that I should wear; it’s what I feel comfortable in. For me colour, cut and styles are not important, I always say: Wear your personality.
My favourite outfit:
The evolution of my style: I started off as a model so I got the opportunity to work with some of the best talent designers in our country and that has influenced my style. After doing many films and playing different characters and dressing up for so many events over the years, I have developed my own style. Fashion is an extension of what I do.
My fashion influences:
My mom. When I was growing up, my mother was my style icon, which she is even today. My style, which is classic, simple and elegant, is influenced by my mother. Like her, I also do not accessories.
My personal style offscreen:
Easy and comfortable. The most expensive outfit I have brought: It would definitely be Indian clothes. Having turned designer for Van Heusen I would like to design clothes for: Everyday college girls. Most actors in the industry have their own distinctive individual style.
I look best in: Both Indian and western clothes.
I have a fetish for:
Shoes – I own lots of them. Getting my shoe size is a difficult task so when I walk into a store and if they have my size, I buy pairs in different colours. I won’t bother if the pattern is the same. I do that for my clothes too.
According to me, the best-dressed man in the industry is:
Akshay Kumar– he is best dressed because his effortlessness (in dressing) makes him look good. He is athletic and this adds to the way he carries himself
According to me, the best-dressed woman in the industry is: Rekha. She dresses the way she wants to. Trends come and go but she stands by what she believes in. I like her approach.
A contemporary actor who is stylish according to me:
My tip on clothes:
Most importantly, when a girl wears clothes she has to feel like her own self, but very often we kind of get carried away by fashion and style and we lose our identity. Also clothes should be comfortable. If you are uncomfortable in any clothing, it clearly shows on your face.
GUESS WHO IS PARTYING HARD POST-SEPARATION

ARREST WARRANTS FOR THE RAM-LEELA BIGGIES
The not so long ago released film Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram -Leela, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali featuring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh was a smash hit at the box office. However, while most enjoyed the film, there were certain individuals who felt the content of the film hurt certain religious sentiments.
In view of this, a petition had been filed by advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha in November last year against the makers of the film for the same. Yesterday, a local court issued arrest warrants against the film's director -producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali, actors Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh in connection with the petition that was filed. Besides this, warrants were also issued against another producer KishoreLulla, as well as the musicians and lyricists of the movie.
Issuing the arrest warrants, Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) SP Singh directed Mumbai Police Commissioner to arrest the persons concerned and produce them at his court on June 4.
AND POONAM PANDEY ALSO IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW:
