Rekha has a sense of self-identity ‘sadly lacking’ in many B-Town celebs: Sabyasachi

SNS | New Delhi |

Fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, on Friday, said that Rekha is the most stylish personality in Bollywood and that the veteran actress has a sense of self-identity which is “sadly lacking” in many people in the film industry.

Talking about the ageless beauty at the India Today Conclave, Sabyasachi said, “When I think of a stylish person in India it could be red lipstick or over the top make-up, glittery red sari. I think nobody can be more stylish than Rekha Ji because she wears a similar saree for every award function as she has a sense of self-identity which is sadly lacking in many people in the industry.”

The designer has styled top actors from the industry in his career but none of them can beat Rekha when it comes to making timeless fashion choices. He believes the perfect way to be impactful is when one brings individualism to their sense of style.

In conversation with Nonita Kalra at the India Today Conclave on ‘Front Row: Reinventing the Classic’ along with designer Naeem Khan, the designer said that fashion industry for many years has made billions feeding on people’s insecurity.

“The more we keep the people insecure the more they buy clothing because they want to measure up to something that is unknown to them. The difference between fashion and style is when you are blindly following fashion, you are in an insecure space where you do not know who you are,” said the ace fashion designer.

“When you are stylish you curate things because you are connected to yourself. A stylish person does not renounce fashion. A stylish person is someone who picks up what is relevant irrespective of whether it is in fashion or not,” Sabyasachi added.
