She may have made her debut as a well-heeled student in “Student of the Year”, but Alia Bhatt says she is not brand conscious in real life and does not like splurging on pricey clothes.
The 24-year-old actress, who was recently in the capital for the Amazon India Fashion Week, says she would wear something that compliments her than buy expensive clothes she might not wear again.
“I’m not brand conscious, when you talk about clothes. But when it comes to my shoes and bags, I’m brand conscious because you need them to last long as they are used on a daily basis.
“I can wear something right from Colaba Causeway store to a Gucci label in my wardrobe. It all depends on what will look good on me. I don’t like wasting money on expensive outfits which I might not wear again. I’d rather mix and match,” Alia told PTI.
She says although fashion has an age element attached to, it helps one understand what makes people around them tick.
“Fashion does age overtime. Like we can differentiate between what appears like a younger look or an older one. But I think fashion defines personality. It is the best way of looking at somebody, you finding something about them,” says the actress.
Alia has two films, “Dragon” with Ranbir Kapoor and “Gully Boy” with Ranveer Singh, lined up for release this year.
