This year's best dressed - Amitabh Bachchan

Divya Sudarsanan
20 November 2012



The man sure knows how to reinvent himself, and keep himself relevant as a brand when most of his contemporaries have faded from the spotlight. To best describe this trendsetter, Bachchan embodies a classic style that never goes out of fashion by keeping it simple. Always.


His western suits as seen on KBC are a safe, tried-and-tested formula that works well at any given time.


Occasionally, he's known to swap a tie for a cravat, thus keeping it semi-casual. Other times, Bachchan goes for the sharp and elegant-looking Indian bandhgala suits or even a casual kurta replete with an embroidered shawl. Not one to shy away from colours, Bachchan carries them off with an effortless ease.

His accessories, too, complement his overall look.


From onscreen to offscreen, he knows what works well. His only fashion faux pax would be his penchant for velvet suits that is a dampener in an otherwise impeccable style.
