A multi-faceted persona that she is, Kalki Koechlin always delights! An unconventional body of work compliments an equally alluring and atypical fashion arsenal off-screen. Born in Pondicherry, the drama graduate from University of London rose from the theatre background to make her screen debut as Chanda in the drama Dev.D in 2009. This strong experimental streak reflects well into her style moments that are defined by a strong grasping of vibe of the occasion. She flits from clean cuts to anti-fits as she does from solid hues to quirky prints. Her style is a far cry from trends and vogues but dictated by comfort. She adds on a generous dash of natural glam, with a new short hairdo adding oodles of sass to her already burgeoning chicness. She turns a year older today. We briefed up a fashion arsenal of some of her recent style moments.
