GQ ‘Men of the Year’ Awards
Posted by Indian Fashion Police on October 1, 2011
GQ magazine gave away ‘Men of the Year’ awards in Mumbai………………..and we had to write about who wore what and how did they fair on the red carpet. So here we go……..
Shahrukh Khan has been voted the best dressed man in India but I sometimes wish he would experiment with a bit of color rather than always playing safe in black. Though he does look good in his statement black tuxedo complete with push back hair.
Mrs. Khan of the other hand is definitely a graceful dresser……..Gauri was seen at this event wearing an ‘Emilio Pucci’ lace dress, Judith Leiber clutch and Jimmy Choo shoes. I like the fact that she did not go all matchy-matchy with her accessories instead opted for a silver clutch & nude open toe heels. Simple, elegant and absolutely appropriate for the event.
Farhan Akhtar seems to have forgotten the essential of these Tux……………the bow-tie of course. A handsome face like him definitely would have looked better styled if he had taken a little more pain in completing the evening look……………rather than just walking in without the tie.
Anushka Sharma was seeing wearing this green ‘Dior’ gown with loose curls on one side…………I am not much into this color but I cannot deny the fact that Anushka looked absolutely amazing. On anyone else the outfit would not looked so good, but Anushka sure makes it work.
Freida Pinto posed for the shutterbugs in this ‘Versace’ gown………….unfortunately the sequin-feathered tail gown could not make Ms. Pinto stand out in the crowd. In a single colour, the gown had too much detail work which did no justice to Freida’s petite frame. I wish she would have chosen one of her knee-length dresses which she is able to work so flawlessly.
It was a surprise to see Prateik in a suit looking dapper plus with a pretty arm candy!!…………now that’s ice-cream with cherry on the top. The lady in question is British model Amy Jackson who will be seen in India films soon. As for Prateik, please dress this way for red carpet events, casuals are best left for time-out with buddies.
Deepika Padukone looked glamorous in this gown [my guess is Ramona Narang] but the shoes were just so wrong on this outfit. I wish she would have opted for strappy heels instead of pumps. The hair, the make-up and the lady all do look fabulous, but one wrong thing can make the entire outfit look bad.
We might have to wait to see Siddharth Mallya carve a niche in the business world, but this man definitely rocks on the red carpet. I do like his sense of style and the effort he puts in to look good at every event. Even here he looked neat in these tuxedos……….some established bollywood stars should make a note on ‘how to dress’ for glam events.
Imran Khan never makes a mistake when he has to dress up a formal event. I suppose his style at GQ event speak a lot about his sense of style. Love to see him in well tailored suits and tux…………perfect 10 on 10 every time. As for his wife Avantika, she did look pretty in her red wrap dress and bronze peep-toes. Except for the hair, I do dig her outfit………….nice.
‘Vision in White’ is how Simi Garewal likes to keep her style………..no doubt she looks incredible and absolutely defied aging but I do wish she would add more color to her styling in form of accessories. All white can be boring at times………..:-)
