Interestingly, a “big actress” once even told Sonam how she actually had to shell out a lot of money just to pay her stylist to appear trendy and good all the time.

Here’s what Sonam Kapoor Recently Said –

“A lot of actresses are abusing me for it. I remember a very big actress telling me, ‘Sonam, why did you do this. You know how much money I am paying my stylist right now’. I was like, ‘I don’t pay my stylist, it’s my sister or I just style myself.’ You just have to be yourself.”

Further, Sonam also mentioned that Bollywood stars have to be very careful while setting any trend as they are quite influential.

“As movie stars we have such a huge say in how the market is going to be like. Whether it’s the movies, or cricket, we all started dressing up in a certain way and started wearing make-up. We unfortunately or fortunately set trends so we have to be very careful in what we do and what we say,” she said.

The Khubsoorat star however, feels one should call her “stylish” rather than a “fashionista”.

True, Sonam is more of a Stylish than a Fashionista – Here’s the Reason Why:

A fashionista is more into wearing things that are deemed to be in fashion. She is more concerned about what’s out there in the fashion market. However, a stylish follows her heart and wear only those things which she thinks goes well with her identity, or goes well with her ‘sense of self’. In simple terms, Fashion usually takes away the wearer’s attention from her. however, style brings the attention and connects directly with our inner selves.
