“In my growing up years, my mother was my style icon and she still is. She is someone who has influenced my style a lot,” Deepika said here Thursday at the launch of a limited collection of Van Heusen spring/summer collection designed by her.
The actress gives due credit to her mother for her fashion sensibilities.
“Today when I talk about my personal style being classic, simple, elegant…it all comes from the way she used to dress. I have never been someone who has accessorised a lot and that comes from her.
“She always wore just a simple watch or simple jewellery. She never accessorised too much. I think as a little girl when you are growing up, your mother’s style is what rubs off on you the most,” added the 28-year-old.
Last seen in blockbuster “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”, the actress will next be seen in “Happy New Year”.
