For seven seasons Ambika Anand has deconstructed fashion for us on her I'm Too Sexy series on TV. For Season 8, the editor-in-chief, fashion at NDTV Good Times, travels to fashion capitals around the world (think Los Angeles, Paris and Delhi) to identify 13 'hottest looks this season,' and how we can achieve them.

Here, we talk to Ambika about style and her fashionable journeys to style capitals across the globe.

 

Chelna Khatau

What is your definition of style?

Ambika Anand

Style is the will to take risks in the way you dress, in the way you live and work! It all comes together and reflects you and that reflects your style!

Chelna Khatau

You've been on Verve's Best Dressed List two years in a row. What are your style secrets?

Ambika Anand

There are no secrets. I always buy something no one ever will!! And that could be a bad thing too. But I take the risk!

Chelna Khatau

You've hosted 7 seasons of I'm Too Sexy… What's your biggest learning been?

Ambika Anand

Work and fashion is a journey and not a destination! I love the process of constant learning and the way fashion is ever evolving!

Chelna Khatau

Can you tell us about the most interesting fashion people you've met while shooting Season 8?

Ambika Anand

We shot with Jacqueline Fernandes in Pondicherry, Jay Sean in Los Angeles and Sonam Kapoor in Paris. My show and my travels see me exploring fascinating new aspects of fashion with celebrities all over the world and these interactions have been just as exciting! Getting the inside scoop on the lives of Hollywood and LA's chic set was incredible, which my conversations with Jay Sean revealed. And listening to him hum a few chords in person was my special treat! Also, I discovered that apart from being an actress, Jacqueline also dons the hat of story-teller and she told me all about her global travels.

Chelna Khatau

What was your most fun/exciting fashion moment while shooting Season 8?

Ambika Anand

Meeting Manish Arora in Paris was a fun moment. Otherwise every step on the journey of the making of every season is always great!

Chelna Khatau

Of all the cities you've travelled to for your show, which has been your favourite? Why?

Ambika Anand

Paris and London are great as they offer so much, so your fashion senses are constantly stimulated.

I love that most of the women in China are super fit and look great in tiny shorts and feminine blouses. They are crazy about their skin and always walk around with an umbrella [to protect their skin].

I also love how the women in Ibiza, who are so body-confident and can just hang out in bikinis all the time, even when they have to go to the neighborhood super market!

Chelna Khatau

How does Delhi as a fashion capital compare with its international counterparts?

Ambika Anand

You cannot compare Delhi to any other city, as fashion for us also exists in the context of Indianwear and that is a huge part [of the Indian fashion scene]!
