In this sea of social media, stylists, designers, it’s so easy to lose one’s identity. I think Alia has maintained her own style. And that’s difficult because you can get so swept away with so much given to you. She is someone who has not given in to that. Being trendy, fashionable, and stylish, she has kept her own and that’s credit-worthy. I think she does things that suit her, things that she believes in

Janhvi Kapoor is growing up. She is just coming into her own. I have full faith in her. She is someone who, with the journey of work and life, will develop her own style

Kareena Kapoor Khan is the kind of actor who likes to be her own self. She carries off anything and everything, whether it is a dress or a gown. We have worked together for years and she has an interesting personality

She is quite clear about what she likes and what she doesn’t like. She is sorted. She knows what suits her and she doesn’t deviate too much from it, which I feel is fair

Ranbir Kapoor is very persona-oriented, like Alia. I don’t think he deviates from his style too much. He sticks to what he is and I actually love that. For me, it is very important that you are trying different things out yet keeping your personality intact

For me, black suits are Shah Rukh Khan! He has made them his signature and he carries them so well! Also, a person who is personality-oriented and so gentle, well-spoken and dapper

Karan Johar looooves clothes that are making a statement. He likes colours, heavy shoes and he enjoys himself! I feel he is the only director who kind of manages that style and flamboyance
