Ami’s Favourit es

“The best part about be­ing a celebrity stylist is that you get to see your work im­me­di­ately and there is in­stant grat­i­fi­ca­tion; which also leaves very lit­tle room for er­ror. How­ever, be­ing the Cre­ative Di­rec­tor at Harper’s Bazaar, I must con­fess that ed­i­to­rial styling is my first love. I love it so much, I’d do it for free! But styling was just some­thing I chanced upon. I al­ways wanted to be­come an Art Di­rec­tor, and when I be­came one at Elle, we had to con­cep­tu­alise and style our own shoots. That’s how I got into the whole process.

Be­ing a celeb stylist is chal­leng­ing—you have a new brief to work with ev­ery­time. It could be a red car­pet, a press con­fer­ence or an event; and the onus of it is en­tirely on you. Also, be­cause it’s not a shoot, you can’t cheat. Even a tiny zip­per needs to be per­fect. Work­ing with Priyanka is great, be­cause she likes to ex­per­i­ment. She isn’t brand con­scious and is open to wear­ing any­thing that suits her and is fash­ion­able and edgy enough.”
