“Beauty is all about leading a healthy lifestyle and taking care of your emotional well being,” says Karisma Kapoor. “It is also who you are on the inside.

Karisma the brand ambassador for the anti-ageing serum spoke about the importance of striking a balance in one’s professional and personal life. “The young Indian woman is juggling many roles today. I believe women should take some time out for themselves,” she insists. “My children are very young and are my priority so I go back home every evening and give them my undivided attention. That’s what keeps me going.”

The diva stunned everyone in a sparkling gold lace outfit and looked simple, yet elegant in diamond studs. She said her style statement is being minimalistic when it comes to jewellery. “I love white, black and golden! To me, the most glamorous red-carpet attire is the sari.”
