A trend has begun wherein an actor is not limited to the narrow boundaries of just acting, an actor is fast becoming multi-talented. A trend has also begun wherein an actor, especially if the actor is female, is judged equally on fashion as much as being judged on acting skills.

Thus, when actors are going to be judged on what they are wearing come what may, I think it is a very smart move for actors to try their hand at being designers. Not only is it another brilliant way of reaching out to their fan base, since a lot of people see the actors as their style icons and role models, celebrity associations also help brands in a huge way. And instead of a celebrity being merely a brand ambassador, this kind of an association is much more mutually beneficial.

Therefore I decided to accept the invitation to witness Myntra bringing out an exclusive collection in collaboration with Deepika Padukone, All About You.

Since we are in a transition weather right now, I decided to wear a regular black pencil skirt with a denim biker cropped jacket. Not only does it suit the weather but it also helps the outfit become edgy instead of it just being a basic black outfit.

I completed the look with my aztec printed tribal heels to add a bit of color and carried a basic black clutch with it.

The collection was very wearable with neutral colors and subtle prints. There were a lot of florals, nudes and sheer.

What stood of for me were the cape jackets, something that I think will have a brand recollection value.
