We caught up with Nina Manuel at the recent Lakme auditions, and couldn’t help but stare at her Miu Miu shoes, which got us thinking.. She’d be the perfect candidate for our next ‘Girl About Town’ series! Check it this exclusive peak into her closet and boy what a great collection of goodies! Which are your favourite Nina Manuel items? Tell us in the comments below, I’m sure she’d like to know too! xoxo
MissMalini thanks so much for inviting me to tell you and your readers all about my favorite pieces I have collected over the years. Unfortunately, I have so many favorites it has proven to be a quite a task to narrow it down, but I’ve done my best to keep the list under control!
But first a bit of advice from a good friend of mine, Fleur Xavier – once you invest in luxury, never look back! Also, don’t forget that each piece of luxury (or each favorite piece of clothing, whether expensive or not) is unique and must be well taken care of both physically and psychologically – I’ve even gone so far as to name some of my favorite shoes and bags, so they feel special and serve me well. Apologies to the clothes, bags, and accessories I’ve left out!
My Favorite Outfit: This is actually a tough one, as I always like to keep things fresh and try out different designers and different clothing, shoe, and accessory combinations. That said, there is one place where my favorite outfit never changes – that’s on the beach, where I of course wear a bikini! Lately, I’m into my Amir Slama bikini that I just picked up from Rio.
My Personal Style: My style varies everyday and according to the event that I am going to. One day I could be wearing Dior heels, Fornarina jeans and a shirt by Anne Fontaine. The next day, I am in kolhapuri slippers, Jodhpurs by Arjun Saluja and a singlet by H&M. I think it is important to always innovate and experiment with one’s style. I don’t like leading a circumscribed life and that definitely translates into my clothes as well.
Fashion Tip: Never limit yourself in terms of color or style. Here in New York, it’s black, black, and more black, and I like to bring the color back! Also, fashion is not about only expensive clothes – it is about dressing smart and creatively. You can wear a basic outfit paired with a funky handbag and look like a million bucks (with the right attitude)!
