Quotes on actor's fashion

Mammootty’s dapper suits and T-shirts, Jayasurya’s trendy clothes in Payyans, Prithviraj Sukumaran’s suave outfits in Arjunan Sakshi, Mythili’s and Shweta Menon’s flowing gowns and simple kurtis were all much talked about. Sameera ensures that her costumes add dimensions and colour to her character. Her favourite star has been Mammukka. “He is very style conscious and well dressed. Mammukka’s only condition was that the fabrics should be soft. Jayasurya is very fashion conscious,” says Sameera, whose favourite compliment came from Mamta Mohandas during the dubbing of the film Katha Thudarunnu. Mamta hugged her and complimented her on the costumes Sameera had designed for her.
