Lara Dutta: The style Diva!
We don’t know why the former Miss Universe and B-town hottie, What is it that sets Lara Dutta apart from the bandwagon crowd? Well, this is one actress who has never stuck to the conventional goody image of a bollywood heroine. She has always carried herself with utmost charm and grace even in the skimpiest outfit. This lady has a lot of style and panache known to very few people.
Lara is one person who can carry off blacks and whites with as much confidence as that of any other colour. Her favourite choice is to go for pure shades of colours rather than floral or very dressy prints.
According to insiders she has a penchant for big chunky jewellery, that is to say she uses one large piece of jewellery to enhance her outfit and look.

Style Check: Lara Dutta
Lara Dutta is seriously underrated. She is beautiful, fit, hot and a talented actress with a knack for comedy. And her smile is dazzling and disarming.
Miss Dutta is stylish but she isn't a bimbette. As she has said earlier, she can even make jeans paired with a t-shirt and sneakers look glamourous. The beauty queen has brains and is very interesting to listen to. She is funny, as is evident from her witty replies when she appears on talk shows.
Even in Blue, she has toned up yet retained her curves and seeing her swim in bright bikinis has made men drool and women green with envy.
Her style is feminine, sophisticated and classy. Lara says that she loves to wear sarees, jeans and well-fitted dresses. Her face is very versatile: she can look Indian and earthy and Western and glamorous. She never goes over-the-top with make-up and this subtlety gives her a cut above the rest. With the right roles and big films, she will be appreciated and get the fame that she deserves.

“The collection spreads happiness,” explains the designer. “It is soulful, simple, innocent and beautiful. And a different and matured colour palette, not just reds, blues and yellows, which while giving a very deeper meaning to the collection - also looks very blissful and expressive.
Ruhaaniyat is full of energy, it is complete and pure. It’s like a celebration.”
Maheka, for the first time, perhaps, has attempted to create an entirely Indian range. “The silhouette, the embroidery, the embellishments are all very Indian,” admits the designer. “Every woman will connect with it. The designs are traditional, but also innovative.”

Lara Dutta on Blue and a rocking 2009
When Lara Dutta was first offered Blue, she refused it. "Akshay Kumar recommended my name to the producers,” she said. “The moment I got to know of it, I called Akshay and told him that I wouldn't be able to accept the assignment. He knew the reason behind my decision."
The reason was that Lara didn't know how to swim. "Not many people are aware that I had almost drowned while shooting for Andaaz,” said the actress. “Akshay had rescued me.” And since major portions of Blue were to be filmed in the ocean, swimming was mandatory.

Lara will make you laugh!
Even in her forthcoming films Do Knot Disturb and Houseful, Lara hopes to get a few laughs with her roles. “These comedies allow me to let myself go in a way I can never do in real life because I’m too private a person,” she said.
Lara confirmed, “Yes, Houseful will be my third comic role in a row. And I’m not worried. It’s a large cast (Deepika Padukone and Jiah Khan). But I have the best part among the girls.”
Lara is proud to be known as a comedy actor. She said, “It’s been a while since we had a leading lady doing comedy. I love working with directors like Priyadarshan, David Dhawan and Sajid Khan. I love it when they say they can’t think of anyone else for the part. I think doing comedy is far tougher than serious roles. I don’t have to break my bangles and rub the sindoor off my hair to prove a good performance. Though I still have to get that one performance-oriented role which would take me to another level. Every morning I wake up and say, I know it’s out there somewhere.”

Lara gives credit to Akshay
16 Mar 2009
Lara Dutta may be going on and on about her underwater stunts in Blue — well, there’s little else she’ll talk about, she’s always so mumwhen it
comes to anything else — but the lass is now also giving due credit to co-actor Akshay Kumar for those deep sea acts.
Apparently, it was Akki who suggested her name for the movie! “Akshay was the one who recommended my name for Blue,” she confesses. Lara told us that she wasn’t too comfy diving 70 feet under water with sharks all around, but it was Akshay who pushed her to do it. “I got a call from Akshay.
He suggested that I take some swimming lessons before the starting of the film, and that if I wasn’t comfortable then I could well back out of the movie altogether. But then Akshay has a favourite dialogue that works wonders for me. He says, ‘Tum nahin toh aur kaun?’ That really gets me!” laughs Lara.

Lara and Kylie Bond
Lara is also shaking a leg with Kylie Minogue in the promo video of Blue along with Akshay Kumar.
Sources say that there is some female bonding happening on the sets whete Lara is giving her 'inputs' to Kylie about India and Bollywood.
Mumbai: Making her debut as an international TV show host, Lara Dutta will soon be seen diving into the deep seas. Having recently acquired her US deep sea diving certificate, Lara says that she will soon start shooting for the show that aims to raise awareness about the endangered marine life due to rising levels of pollution in the oceans.
"I have just been certified as a deep sea diver (by an international agency in the US) and I can dive up to 70 feet anywhere in the world. I was contacted by National Geographic to shoot for this 32-episode docu-feature which will involve deep sea diving in spots which are out of bounds for the general public. I have been given special permission to shoot in these isolated spots in the high seas as the host of this show. I have already given my nod for 13 episodes; I am working my dates out for the rest of the programme," says Lara, who always wanted to be an environmentalist.
"Ever since I won the Miss Universe crown, I was itching to take up a cause like this. I am a goodwill ambassador for the UN for the past nine years now and I am glad that I will be able to make people aware about the grave dangers that marine life is staring at," the actor adds.
Seen feeding sharks and whales in her next film Blue, Lara says, "That is when I discovered my love for the sea and the life forms that thrive in there." Of course, our earthly 'life forms' will be more than thrilled to see Lara diving around in sexy bikinis and bodysuits, no? "If you are expecting to see me dancing or running across the beach in a bikini in the film, you will be disappointed. A lot of actors may have done that, but I am not comfortable in those scenes. In fact, I have told Tony (D'Souza) that I should not be seen in swimwear in any shot outside water," she clarifies.
The Unachievable Desire
Lara Dutta is a 5’8” beauty with a pretty yet sensual face, legs that look like they’ve been sculpted by Da Vinci and a body worthy of a Bond film. Yet, as she walks around Famous Studios in Mumbai in high heels and a dress that fits so snugly to her body it’s like it were painted on, I am almost ashamed to fantasise about her. I feel like I haven’t deserved it. Who am I, a pathetic, unshaven journalist, to even dream of being anywhere close to the legs of this elegant princess who makes posing in front of the camera look like the lost art of the Egyptians.

Diet : I am a vegetarian and follow a balanced diet of proteins, a complex carbohydrate and a starchy carb. I have fruit juices, cucumber juice and coconut water to cool myself in the hot weather.
Breakfast is egg whites, toast, papaya and coffee. My meals consist of rotis, two vegetables, rajma or dal, salad and yogurt.
At tea time, I have a craving for chaats. Among desserts, I love crème brulee and like to end the day with a small piece of dark chocolate.
Stress Buster : A good workout makes me feel relaxed. Swimming gives me immense satisfaction.
Happiness quotient : Being in the profession of acting, I definitely have to be a people’s person and socialise when it’s an absolute necessity. Otherwise, I am a complete home body. Chilling out at home makes me happy.
