Have it? Flaunt it: Divas in bag repeat mode
Here’s to no more remarks like, ‘Didn’t she carry that same bag to the last party, too?’ It’s not a faux pas, and our Bollywood ladies such as Jacqueline Fernandez, Shilpa Shetty and Sridevi are proving just that by repeating their favourite bags during recent outings. The fashion frat, too, has given it a thumbs up.
“It’s an inspiration to real women. It shows their confidence and it’s liberating. You must make full use of everything that you have. We don’t want to see celebrities dressed to the T by stylists; we want to see their personalities,” says designer Anupama Dayal.
Stylist Prayag Menon agrees and says one doesn’t have to live up to a trend or expectations. “It’s important to enjoy what you wear and carry. Fashion is all about having a good time.”
Designer Rina Dhaka says it’s a sensible thing to do, especially when travelling. “If you change bags, you might end up losing stuff. You need a bag that’s reliable and easy to manoeuvre.”
