Preity Zinta's most expensive buy

Sukanya Verma | September 06, 2004

Preity Zinta loves to shop.

Bollywood's hottest heroine says she can spend "like crazy" when something catches her fancy. She does not, however, have a label fetish when it comes to picking up something she likes.

As far as fashion is concerned, this is what Preity has to say:

My favourite Indian designer: I really like Manish Malhotra's stuff.

Designers I dig abroad: I like Valentino and Roberto Cavalli. I like Calvin Klein. He has very straight-lined stuff.

Most of my shopping happens: Abroad. There are very few times I shop here mainly because, here, you are usually on outdoors [an outdoor shoot] or [in the] studios. Where do you have the time to shop? Usually, when you are on a holiday, you shop.

I even shopped at Shoppers' Stop once: I needed salwar-kameezes for a dance rehearsal. You can't wear track bottoms and do Indian dance. [Since] I had given all my old salwar-kameezes [away, I needed to buy new ones]. I just randomly shop.

I am not a label person: Whatever I like anywhere, I pick it up.

Fashion to me means: Whatever I feel comfortable in. I like to mix and match. I'll buy something from the street. I'll buy something from a fashion house.

Most expensive buy/bite: I had to attend this party instantly and I didn't have shoes. So I went and bought a pair of shoes worth 1,200 Euro [approximately Rs 67,405]. And let me show you [shows her leg which has two painful-looking shoe bite marks] it has this bee-like thing across and it dug into my skin and gave me two little lines. And now I have got marks. I look at those shoes and go 'This is the most expensive bite of my life' [laughs].
