On September 8 she walked the ramp as the showstopper and was looking extremely beautiful in ivory costume by popular fashion designer Archana Kochhar. “It was such an amazing feeling. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a model and when I turned 18, I tried. I was told I was too short, too fat, too commercial or they were just not interested,” Leone told PTI in an email interview from New York.

“This is my big ‘screw the negative people’ moment because of this too short, too fat, too commercial girl got to walk at New York Fashion Week,” she said.

The stunning Sunny Leone even admitted that she was scared to walk over ramp for the first time on such big platform. “I was so nervous about tripping and falling. Also, this has been a dream for so long, I didn’t believe it was happening.”

Despite this Acid attack victim, Reshma Qureshi also walks the ramp for same Indian designer for same collection, “A Tale of Two Travels”.

Leone said while she couldn’t get time to meet other designers, she spent time with Qureshi.

“I did get a chance to spend time with Reshma Quereshi and she is a doll. I wish her all the best in life and I admire her strength and determination.”

“I always find it interesting, the ones doing the policing are not well dressed at all, and what I mean is mainly grooming aspects. So it’s fine if they hate what I wear because I love it and am happy wearing it. Fashion is subjective to each and every one of us,” she said.

She said she feels fashion is subjective and she feels happy with her style at the personal level.
