Where do you mostly shop from? I shop both in India and abroad... it depends on what I want. I think India is a nice place to shop in. You have great dealers, nice shops, and most importantly, the variety of colours and fabric you get in this country is beyond comparison.
The price is very much affordable in India even with designer products.
Any specific brands you prefer?
Not really, but I like Guess jeans and Miss Sixty, it's an European brand that has amazing style and fit.
Do you adorn yourself with accessories?
Yes, very much. I buy a lot of accessories. I bought loads of semi-precious stones from Rajasthan recently. But I wear them occasionally. At times I go for a clean look, as I don't think I can put on my accessories with everything I wear. It needs to gel well with the complete look.
Which brands do you favour for footwear?
Nothing specific. In fact, for my sports wear I have Nike, Addidas and even Reebok. Mainly, it should fit well and be comfortable. The brand doesn't matter actually.
What is Mandira Bedi's style mantra?
I don't have any style mantra, all I believe in is wearing something that goes well with my personality and makes me feel comfortable. I think one should not become a victim of fashion trends. There are many things that are in vogue but may not look good on me. So I don't follow fashion blindly. One should wear clothes that sync with the person's personality.
Which perfume do you like the most?
I have been using Pleasure by Estee Lauder for a long time now.
How do you keep yourself in vogue during the monsoons?
I opt for convenience rather than fashion. I wear a lot of capris, three-quarters, and I have a few pairs of flotters. They are safe, as well as trendy.
Brand you prefer for lingerie?
I don't restrict to just one. I have Triumph, La Senza and Victoria's Secrets as well. Nothing in particular.
What according to you are essentials in any woman's wardrobe?
A pair of good-fit blue jeans, a nice fitting white, collared shirt and a couple of jackets, as they go well with everything.
