Meet Aashna Cho­pra, a multi‑hy­phen­ate whose wardrobe is as var­ied as her life

ashna cho­pra might have grown up in Sin­ga­pore, but she has her eyes set on the world. The daugh­ter of hedge fund man­ager Vi­jay Cho­pra and his wife Shalini, Aashna is a bud­ding thes­pian, hav­ing grad­u­ated from New York Univer­sity with a ma­jor in per­form­ing arts and mar­ket­ing, be­fore mov­ing to Los An­ge­les to pur­sue a ca­reer in en­ter­tain­ment. More than just a pretty face, Aashna is well con­nected too. In 2015, she co-founded the Act for Hope ini­tia­tive, which hosted a gala called Cam­era, Cat­walk and Canvas that brought to­gether some of the big­gest names in the In­dian fash­ion and arts in­dus­try, in sup­port of the Con­cern In­dia Foun­da­tion. The char­i­ta­ble trust helps young women and girls who are vic­tims of abuse. When it comes to her style, it is clearly a case of life im­i­tat­ing art. Aashna em­bod­ies the char­ac­ters she so dearly loves when it comes to get­ting dressed. “Movies are such a big in­spi­ra­tion for me fash­ion-wise. I’ll watch a film and my style and per­sona will take af­ter the char­ac­ter that I’m ob­sessed with! If I’d watched Break­fast at Tiffany’s, all I’d wear for the next few days are black dresses and bal­let flats,” she says. While she is a big fan of brands such as Off-white, Chris­tian Louboutin and Dolce & Gab­bana, Aashna is open to try­ing new things too. “I don’t take my­self too se­ri­ously when it comes to fash­ion. I like to have fun and ex­per­i­ment with my clothes—i’d even wear a top back to front on purpose if I feel it looks good!”
