Sunny Leone walked the ramp for designer Swapnil Shinde on Day 1 of Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020. In a Cinderella printed tee with an oversized jacket and knee-high boots, Sunny looked every bit a millennial as the showstopper for Swapnil, who made a comeback to LFW after 5 years. The Telegraph caught up with Sunny after the show...
Your outfit for Swapnil Shinde has a Disney princess on it. How would you describe this outfit?
The outfit has a princess on it and what I love most about it is that she’s drinking whisky or about to drink whisky (laughs). I think that’s an amazing representation of these perfect figures and strong women doing exactly what they want to do. I never imagined a Disney princess drinking whisky but I love it.
What’s your personal style like?
It’s what I call ‘confused’ (laughs). I think it varies day to day depending on what I’m doing. I can’t say that I’m into colours a lot lately but that is what my wardrobe consists the most of — bright colours.
If you could bring back a vintage style, what would it be?
Hair and make up, actually. I loved the vintage hair, the amazing winged liner with red lips. It was such an amazing look.
Your twin boys, Asher and Noah, celebrated their second birthday recently. How did you celebrate it?
We had a small family dinner on their actual birthday and then we plan to throw them a beautiful party. They decided they like Spiderman, so it’s going to be a Spiderman-themed birthday party at Kidz Social House (owned by Sunny and her husband, Daniel Weber).
How has motherhood changed you?
Motherhood has changed me completely. I would say I’m better at time management. I spend my entire day trying to figure out how I can spend more time with my children than I already do. They brighten up every single day of my life.
What’s a typical day at the Weber/Leone household like these days?
A typical day is very, very busy! It usually starts around 6am when our first twin Weber boy — I call him Baby B, he is Noah — wakes up. The others wake up around 7.30am-7.45am. I’ll give you a breakdown of what happened the other day! All the kids had breakfast, I got Nisha (daughter) dressed, the boys dressed and dropped Nisha off at school by 8.45am, dropped the boys off by 9am. I had work to do with StarStruck. Then I picked the boys up, took them to Kidz Social House. I dealt with all the employees at our new centre. Then I picked Nisha up. Somewhere between all that I had lunch. Then hair and make-up started at 2pm until 3.30pm. Then I did all the pictures of the outfit, got into the car and went to an event. After that I went home, fed the children (laughs).
You recently won three awards at AsiaOne’s Women Empowerment Award in Thailand. How do you feel?
It’s amazing to win awards at some of these business award shows because we spend so much time working on our businesses, working on our products and things that we are doing. It’s such an amazing honour.
What was the inspiration behind starting your own cosmetic line StarStruck?
I always wanted to have my own make-up line. I feel very fortunate that my husband and I could connect the dots with all the people that we know and the people that we work with and that we were able to do all of this on our own. I’m not a brand ambassador, I own this company, so does my husband. I do all the testing of the products on myself or anybody that I can find. Everything goes through me. It’s not just made and shipped out.
What movies are you working on currently?
I’m working on a film called Coca Cola which is a horror-comedy and a father-daughter story. It’s an exciting project for me.
