Deepika became a style icon by default
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.
