#1. She's a major Katrina Kaif fan!
" The woman has an amazing body! She's extremely fit!" she tells Cosmo.
#2. Manish Malhotra is her go-to designer
"It's hard to choose just one go-to, but him and Payal Singhal come up top," she says.
#3. She loves that she looks like her mum
"People often wish that they could look like this or that person instead of themselves but I've never really felt that way about myself. I'm happy I look the way I do—I look like my mother, and I wouldn't change that for anything in the world."
#4. She loves jewellery to death
"I can't imagine going out without my necklaces and rings," she exclaims.
#5. Weight-training is her favourite form of exercise
"That, and yoga. I have to keep alternating whenever my body gets used to any one thing," she says.
#6. She's not big on the dressing-up thing
"I'm more of a dress-down person, than dress-up. The truth is, I can't stand dressing up! I like my clothes to be casual—track pants, flip-flops: that's much more me. I'd live in them if I could," she reveals.
#7. But when she has to, she loves doing her eye make-up most
"When I step out of the house, my favourite bit is doing up my eyes. I think they're definitely one of my best features, and if I play them up just right, they end up doing the talking for me."
#8. Her fave places are Zara and Topshop
"I know I can always find trends that work for me at Zara and Topshop if I need a little fashion inspiration!" Sonakshi tells us.
#9. She wishes her metabolism was better
"I love food way too much to give it up. The only thing I wish I could change a little is my metabolism. It's always been slow, so my body reacts way slower to exercise than it would for other people. I try to stay healthy as much as I can with the way I eat, though—I give in and gorge if I'm really craving something (followed, of course, by an extra 20 minutes on the treadmill in repentance for my sins!)" she laughs.
#10. But she loves her curves anyway!
"My curves are my favourite feature. Having a beautiful body is subjective. It just depends on the way you naturally look. If you're stick-thin, don't be self-conscious. The same way, if you're curvy, don't keep wishing you were skinny. It's unfair that people are forced to conform to a standard of beauty that may not come naturally to them. What's most important, really, is to be fit, healthy and happy. Just love the way you look—and own it!"
