Kangana Ranaut is known for her film projects as well as her fashion sense.
The actor said it was not a "conscious leap" to come forward as a style icon. She also added that she had been experimenting with her looks since her growing up days.

"I started as a small town girl and it was not a conscious leap where I decided that I have to emerge as this style icon. While growing up, I was quite experimental with my looks. It was not like that I didn't stand out back home in my little village where I grew up," Kangana told IANS.
"In fact, my fashion sense was quite outrageous. I remember wearing torn shorts and straw hat and going to market, which sort of scandalised everyone," she added.
