Madhu Sapre ruled the ramp for a long time in India.
Then, the former Miss India-Universe runner-up quit a booming career to marry Italian businessman Gianmaria Emendotori.
She now lives in Italy, the Mecca of fashion and style. And here are a few of her passions!
For me, comfort is very important. I don't wear tight clothes.
My favourite outfit is a pair of jeans, a tee shirt and keds (sneakers).
I love saris -- I have just started wearing them.
I also like knee-length skirts. I don't wear tiny skirts any longer, though my husband wants me to wear them.
My wardrobe has become more colourful.
Earlier, I wore loads of black.
After moving to Italy, I have learnt to put things together [in terms of clothes] because everybody there is so well dressed -- be it a gardener or a carpenter or a businessman. They have a great sense of style.
