A Style Evolution That Charts Datin Meera Sen’s Kaleidoscopic Outfits

A Style Evolution That Charts Datin Meera Sen’s Kaleidoscopic Outfits
By Jessica Liew
February 08, 2019
Her love for every shade of the rainbow has been curated with a classy touch throughout the years, in head-turning outfits worn from formal functions to birthday parties.

There’s no one quite like Datin Meera Sen, who leaves an unforgettable impression with a formidable grace, gentle demeanour and above all, a covetable closet bursting with colour. The executive director of Kimgres Marketing, mother and fashion collector has an eye for anything vivid and polychromatic, an appreciation that has only deepened over the years. When the 2015 Asia’s Most Stylish Woman is not rocking multiple shades, Datin Meera loves unusual colours and has the ability to inject some fun into otherwise monochrome ensembles. A fondness for pro-colour designer labels reflect in her Fendi and Farah Khan collections, and adoration for statement wear echoes through in Oscar de la Renta gowns and Dior clutches. We dipped into our archives and unearthed her most colourful coordinations from as early as 2014.
