"In my growing up years, my mother was my style icon and she still is. She is someone who has influenced my style a lot," Deepika said here on Thursday at the launch of a limited collection of Van Heusen spring/summer collection designed by her.

The actress gives due credit to her mother for her fashion sensibilities.

"Today when I talk about my personal style being classic, simple, elegant...it all comes from the way she used to dress. I have never been someone who has accessorised a lot and that comes from her.

"She always wore just a simple watch or simple jewellery. She never accessorised too much. I think as a little girl when you are growing up, your mother's style is what rubs off on you the most," added the 28-year-old.

Last seen in blockbuster ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, the actress will next be seen in ‘Happy New Year’.
