Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure - IANS

Ac­tor Deepika Padukone (right) says that the style icon tag as­so­ci­ated with her is some­thing that hap­pened by de­fault. Asked what it means to her to be a fash­ion sym­bol, Deepika said: “I think it just hap­pened by de­fault. I just have amaz­ingly tal­ented peo­ple who work and put it to­gether for me and make me look the way I do. I don’t think I can take credit for that.”

The 29-year-old has of­ten stated that her mother Uj­jala is her style icon. “My mom had a big in­flu­ence on my life. It (dress­ing) was al­ways sim­ple, min­i­mal­is­tic. She would al­ways stick to white, blue and pas­tel shades. Even ac­ces­soris­ing was very min­i­mal. That’s why my mum (is my style icon),” she said.

Although she started her ca­reer as a model, Deepika feels that she’s in­ca­pable of styling some­one else. “I don’t think I know enough about fash­ion to be styling other peo­ple. I think there are a lot of peo­ple out there who can style me,” she said.
