SHOULD HAVE A CHOICE

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE - Contd on p3

Celebrity stylist Ni­tasha Gau­rav feels it’s ar­chaic to say women should wear heels. “They should al­ways have an op­tion. It’s fine to have a dress code like for­mal or ca­sual or smart ca­sual but the ex­tent of spec­i­fi­ca­tions should be checked. Men are not asked to wear footwear that’s in­con­ve­nient to them. How a woman chooses to in­ter­pret for­mal wear, is up to her. If it’s ap­pli­ca­ble for cloth­ing it should be the same for footwear. There is a sub­lime un­der­stand­ing that if it is a red car­pet event then it has to be heels, but one needs to slowly change the mind­set. If a woman has to wear footwear for a few hours and smile and pose on the red car­pet, she should choose a com­fort­able pair that works with her out­fit. There are some ac­tresses like Alia Bhatt, Son­akshi Sinha and Anushka Sharma who are of­ten spot­ted in flats for events,” says Ni­tasha.
