Just a few days back fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee stirred up a hornet’s nest with his bold (yet harmless) comment – “I’m obsessed with boobs.” While Twitter police was up in arms against the designer suggesting the statement was in bad taste, many hailed and endorsed his audacity.

Of course, Sabya didn’t want to stir up a controversy proclaiming love for a part of the female anatomy. He was in fact only referring to models (of a certain body type) who he thought could represent his collections best.

Talking about the kind of models he prefers to showcase his ethereal designs, Bollywood’s favourite fashion designer had said, “In fashion, you have to reinvent yourself every three to five years. You need to be fresh. Right now, I’ve become tired of gaunt faces and stick-thin models. I’m obsessed by boobs!" TV’s leading ladies, fashionistas in their own right – Divyanka Tripathi, Kavita Kaushik and Sneha Wagh opened up about Sabya’s statement to us. Here’s what they had to say:

It depends on how you look at it. Weren't ancient artists and painters obsessed with it? You can see it in their craftsmanship. They are just not around to testify it. To my understanding Sabyasachi is an artist and his quote was relating to his creative choice.

Anyway, people choose to react irrespective whether one likes boobs or not! If someone says, that cleavage shouldn't be shown, some groups will stand and say it's a woman's choice how she wants to dress. If they like it, some others won't like it. Why to make it an issue, I don't understand! It's just a body part! Love it, respect it but don't make it a taboo.

Hahahha ! All men are obsessed with boobs, as long as he doesn’t make any women uncomfortable with his truth I think his honest statement should not paint him black.

He’s a designer and he spoke his mind. Let’s stop judging people for speaking their mind. Let’s not suppress and scare people. They should be allowed to speak up for what they really feel.
