he Baadshah of Bollywood turns 48 today! And what a sexy 48-year-old he’s grown into! Happy Birthday S-S-Shah Rukh!
While we just can’t get enough of the ever charming King Khan on screen, we do get to see him ever so often going in and out of airports, jet setting around the world. Here’s a look at his very consistent, very classic and very practical travel style.
Look 1: Core Classics
Recently spotted returning from Australia, our man looks dapper in a sporty blazer. Notice how just by addition of the smart blazer, the classic old white round neck t-shirt and jeans look gets elevated. Black wayfarers add a finishing touch to the outfit.
Look 2: Going Grunge
90’s grunge is back in a big way this year and Shah Rukh does it with distressed denims, layered knits, a studded cap and the quintessential Converse sneakers. While baseball caps and distressed jeans have made a recent comeback, it’s the canvas sneakers that will never go out of style for everyday casuals.
Look 3: Comfy Chic
A hoodie for comfort and a blazer (draped over the arm) for style – SRK has it all covered in shades of blue. Beige slip-ons help break the single coloured look, while also being easy to remove for security checks. Take cues from Shah Rukh and get a pair of neutral coloured loafers or the very on-trend boat shoes as they are great for traveling and even otherwise.
Look 4: Laid back military
Guys, this is how you pull off two trends effortlessly. This military-meets-grunge ensemble looks comfortable, while a co-ordinating watch pulls it together. Pair your old faded jeans and sneakers with an olive green sweatshirt for this easy, army chic look, and finish out with classic aviators that are ubiquitous to army style.
Look 5: Jet Black
King Khan is back to his favourite colour, black, and is showing us his trademark winter layering with the hoodie and blazer combo. Black is great for adding on layers as it is ultra slimming and hides bulk. Stay stylish and practical at the same time with a printed backpack to hold all your travel essentials.

t’s not every day that you have a threequel releasing. And an Indian super hero sci fi at that! The young and the young at heart in the country can’t ask for a better Diwali gift now, can they? The costumes of the Hrithik Roshan-Priyanka Chopra-Kangna Ranaut-Vivek Oberoi starrer have been creating a lot of buzz, especially that of the latter two who play dark roles. Since anything to do with wardrobes gets us adequately excited, we are thrilled to finally welcome Krrish 3. Here’s taking a look at what the stars wear in the film and also showing how you can get them this Diwali.
Don’t forget to tell us in the comments section what you thought of the film and which of the four looks you are willing to try!

If there’s one thing that was common between our makeover candidates for the October edition, it’s the fact that they both are die hard Myntra.com fans and loyal customers. While the recently married Gargi Chakraborty from Bangalore did a major part of her wedding shopping at Myntra, 26-year old Tausif Sayyad from Jalgaon, Maharashtra, shops from us ever so often.
Each one also presented to us unique challenges in terms of how we could create a look that was markedly different from their usual styles. Tausif was quite adamant about not letting his moustache go, as he had never tried out a clean shaven look in his life. Gargi, on the other hand, came to us wanting to try out something Western to surprise her hubby (who, of course, had no idea about the makeover), as she had had enough of her Jeans and Kurti look.
The moustache was binned, and the Kurti abandoned, and out came two souls who couldn’t recognize themselves! Tausif, in fact, was so happy, that he now wants to nominate his brother for the makeover.
Here’s the makeover video. Do use the comments box to tell us what you thought of it. Happy viewing!
On him: Puffer jacket, green bottoms, full sleeves T shirt
On her: Gold leather bracelet, red shoes
t is Halloween tomorrow and you’ve just got a memo about a party at work. Do you hunt for the nearest costume store and arrange for a whacky, outlandish costume that will grab everyone’s attention, and a few nasty stares too? Or do you play it really safe and show up at work in boring, regular clothes?
No need to panic, we are here to give you costume ideas from the pieces you already have in your closet, or can be bought for regular use later. Office appropriate Halloween costumes that are easy and fun too? You’ve got it!
There’s nothing cooler than a witch who knows her magic as well as her style. Pair a long maxi dress in black (or any dark colour) with pointed toe shoes to get the look. If you don’t have a long dress, an LBD with ruffles will also work. Wear green or purple eye shadow in the evening to create dramatic eyes. This is also the right time to try out nail wraps to go with your stylish witch look.
Animal prints have been big this year, so dressing up as a racy leopard should be a piece of cake. All you need to do is dress up head to toe in your leopard prints and you’re done. Point to remember here is to use only one kind of animal print; for example, don’t mix a leopard with zebra or python print, unless you want to dress up like someone who is casino hopping in Las Vegas. Simple accessories like gold earrings should be enough to accessorize this busy look. And practice your cat liner skills to make this look complete. Cat eyes will make all the difference.
The vampire fever is not over yet, so here’s a chance for you to wear this enchanting and super slimming look. A sleek pair of black trousers and a long coat with a deep red shirt will do the job for you. Use a strong hair gel to slick back your hair and while going out for a party, add a touch of white powder to get that eerie paleness on your face.
Cool Superhero Dude
Give your childhood fantasies an outlet and dress up as your favourite superhero. It’s quite simple, just pick up a superhero T-shirt, matching pants and a pair of boots (ever noticed how all superheroes swear by boots, no matter what the costume?) and your outfit is done. And don’t forget your superhero cape! We suggest you borrow your wife / girlfriend’s scarf, or get one for yourself – it will be handy for the coming winter too. The Superhero costume is for those who are not fans of donning something outrightly jaw dropping or scary.
This is one day when you don’t have to worry about how pretty or handsome you look. The bottom-line is to just have fun and enjoy the day. A happy smile or a fun, scary look will instantly get all the cameras clicking around you!
hat day isn’t far when shararas take the place of lehengas, with the former becoming increasingly popular with both designer and celebrities alike as an ethnic wear option! There’s a certain vintage charm that a sharara carries unlike any other.
Bollywood’s hottest have taken to shararas of late. Sonam Kapoor wore a glittering one during a promotional event for her film Raanjhanaa. Kareena Kapoor’s hot pink sharara in Agent Vinod is one that left a lasting impression on viewers, as did Parineeta Chopra’s sharara in Jhalla Wallah from Ishaqzaade. Other beauties spotted wearing this shashaying trend include Shraddha Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Tisca Chopra.
From not-so-traditional colours to bold prints; modern twists have made this Mughal attire come alive. Designers that made intricately worked shararas include Sabyasachi, Meera & Muzaffar Ali and, Rina Dhaka. Adarsh Gill on the other hand showcased shararas in bright hues with bold floral and geometric prints.
Team your sharara with a choli and embellished jacket for that urbane touch. A short kurta traditionally accompanies the sharara and would be perfect if you don’t have great abs to flaunt! Mirror work, zardosi and heavy dupattas in brocade are best kept aside for weddings. Shararas in georgette, silk and satin with embroidery and sequin can be worn for celebrations and during the festive season (read: Diwali card parties). A net sharara dupatta with a heavy choli and a worked sharara is a great alternative for occasions like Diwali instead of heavy lehenga cholis and anarkalis.
The sharara is uber comfortable owing to its roomy nature, and a lot more comfortable than a lehenga choli or even a saree. It’s vintage, feminine and a bit bohemian.
For occasions that demand bling; heavy jewellery like a kundan set or gold jhumkas with bangles are good options. For some reason, we can’t think of shararas without a gorgeous maang tika; it’s as if the two were made for each other.
Gold or silver heels go well with these. If you are blessed with height and want to wear flats, glamorous mojaris it is! So go ahead and embrace this stunning outfit, it’s a refreshing change from other ethnic wear!
