Describe your personal style.
It's very sophisticated, casual and chic.
How has your style evolved?
Well… my style has evolved with respect to my character. Earlier, when I was not the mother of three kids I used to wear jeans all the time, but now I avoid wearing that because I have to meet my character's demands. So, I try and keep my style very sober and chic.
How long does it take you to get ready?
In normal days it doesn't take me that long, I would say it takes just 15 minutes to get ready. However, if I am opting for a more formal look, then it takes an hour or so.
What inspires you style wise?
Nothing really. It depends on the occasion.
Is there anything you would like to change about your appearance?
I have got really thin hair, so I would love to change that.
What is your favourite piece of clothing?
There is a Rizwan Beyg outfit that I have, which is my all-time favourite. It's a very classic outfit, which can be dressed up or dressed down.
Your favourite designers?
Rizwan Beyg, Maheen Khan, Deepak Perwani and Nomi Ansari are my most favourite designers.
Tell us something no one knows about you?
I can make excellent breakfast!

Stay on trend in this summer's hottest hues
With the warmer temperatures comes a bunch of new fashion trends, including the latest and greatest colour trends. Rocking this season's hottest hues is a surefire way to stay on trend without breaking the bank — just pick out a new piece or two in one of the colours below and you'll have a completely updated look for this season. Want to see the five hottest shades for this season? Read on...
Tangerine is the 'IT' colour of 2012. So try wearing a bold dress, top or kurti in this striking shade which suits most skin tones. However, if you're feeling a little colour shy, start small by rocking a tangerine manicure or accessory.
Pastel colours are a big hit this season, but mint is the trendiest hue of the bunch. This frosty shade is a lovely mix between blue and green and gives off a light, airy vibe. Mix and match a mint-coloured item with shades like red and blue, for a gorgeous and summer-appropriate look.
Citron yellow is just on the verge of being fluorescent, which is why we love it — this shade is b-o-l-d. Adding a citron yellow piece to your wardrobe is sure to brighten up your whole look!
This beautiful shade of green can be so many things: fresh, vibrant, preppy, glamorous or dramatic. It's a lively colour that creates style impact but is soothing at the same time. On the other hand, this shade is definitely a head-turner and you should certainly go for it and add some kelly green statement pieces in your wardrobe, like cute tops, sundresses and sandals.
No list of spring colour trends would be complete without some pink, and this season's most popular hue is a bright shade with just a hint of orange. Coral has a great blend of femininity and edginess that works in any girl's wardrobe. Hopefully you'll find a piece that matches your aesthetics!
No Wonder Vera's
Brides Wore Black…
Months after her dramatic show, wedding gown designer reveals marriage split
Her name is synonymous with the couture wedding gowns she's made for big-name clients including Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez and Chelsea Clinton.
But the fashion world was wondering whether the black wedding dresses Vera Wang debuted for her 2012 collection sounded the death knell for own marriage.
Wang, 63, and her businessman husband Arthur Becker confirmed recently that they were separating 23 years after their lavish 1989 wedding at New York's Pierre Hotel.
The designer's autumn 2012 bridal show last October included many dresses that strayed far from the traditional white in tones of black, nude and blush. The collection was lauded for its daring uniqueness, but now fashionistas are speculating that the black gowns were symbolic of Wang's fracturing relationship.
Friends believe incessant bickering between the couple, who have two daughters, Cecilia, 22, and Josephine, 19, led to the split. A US daily revealed they had "mutually and amicably agreed to separate". But a source told the daily: "They used to fight all the time in public, even at dinner." Becker, the former boss of tech firm NaviSite, even reportedly joked bitterly that he was "Mr Vera Wang". His wife's wedding dresses have also been worn by Kate Hudson, Mariah Carey and Sharon Stone and Michelle Obama is a big fan.
Another source revealed: "Her staff has been ordered not to talk. There is concern that it doesn't look good for a wedding-dress designer to get a divorce."
