It’s that time of the year again! The much-awaited IIFA 2018 Awards is all set to transpire in Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok that boasts of awe-inspiring temples, bustling local markets, vibrant nightlife and vast shopping complexes. This year marks its 19th edition and a return to this venue exactly after a decade. IIFA 2018 promises to be a mélange of glitz, glamour and Bollywood’s finest talent, world media, Indian cinema fans and enthusiasts from 22 nd to 24th June at the reputed Siam Niramit Theatre. Ahead of the glitzy affair, the dapper men of tinsel town – Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan and Karan Johar attended the IIF 2018 press conference in Delhi last night. Giving us a glimpse of their fashionable shenanigans, while Shahid opted for the trust monochrome, Ranbir Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan suited up. But it was Bollywood’s resident style icon, Karan Johar who was at his jazziest best and reigned in signature chutzpah in a quirky jacket and metallic shoes.
In the fashion riddled Bollywood, men’s style quotient is nascent and understated but these men have time and again proved their versatility with all things modish and classics. Experimenting with style with a subtle understanding of what suits them the best, here’s a closer look at the dapper diaries of Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar and Kartik Aaryan from IIFA 2018 press conference!
Styled by his go-to stylist Anisha Jain, Shahid teamed a monochrome striped shirt from Karrtik D with white cropped pants from Diya Rajvvir. Black formal shoes, a well-groomed mane and beard rounded out his non-fussy casual summery look.
Kartik kept things dapper in a pink striped shirt and light grey suit from Brook Brothers rounding out the look with brown formal shoes from Christian Louboutin, a well-kempt beard and mane. He was styled by Priyanka and Kazim.
Styled by Nikita Jaisinghani, Karan suited up in a quirky Sahil Aneja suit rounding it out with metallic boots, clear shades and a groomed mane.
