2. Karishma Rawat, Channel V actress and fashion blogger at ‘GingerSnaps’ was chosen for our first Style Episode – ‘The Girl Next Door’. Considering her popularity as the cute innocent “Naro” in the Channel V ‘Suvreen Guggal’ series, the script was written and choreographed to supplement her personality, which is that of a young and friendly girl next door. Since she could be easily associated with a quintessential girl who has just stepped into her 20s, we had her sport the following looks:
- Chirpy college girl.
- Casual look meant for a coffee with friends.
- Fashion blogger attending a fashion event.
- Delicate date look.
