Just when you thought that it couldn’t get any better, here we are again with more fashion news from around the world…! This time, we do an exclusive piece on fashion trends of all the four IPL seasons that have been and the ongoing fifth installment as well. Read this Urban Style Guide blog post to know more about the style essentials of your beloved celebrities both on and off the cricket field.
Yummy Mommy-to-be and IPL favorite- Shilpa Shetty Kundra
Shilpa Shetty Kundra is the paragon of feminine grace and beauty. Add to that a killer body (well, at least until she got pregnant) and you can bet that Shilpa looks her best no matter what outfit she dons. In the picture collage, Shilpa impresses in a blue Rajasthan Royals jersey-shirt and jeans(now that is the most comfortable yet fashionable outfit for any sports fan and we highly recommend it), along with a big blue handbag. She definitely looks like she is well on her way to be a gorgeous mum. Next, she is seen in an elegant blue satin gown with a side slit, a silver clutch, jewellery and sandals. Crisp and immaculate is what we would like to call Shilpa’s sense of style. Moving on, Shilpa shows off her long and shapely legs in a semi-formal flared bubblegum-pink skirt and beige top with a black waist ribbon. Think back to her days of thick eyebrows and loud makeup and you’ll know that the ugly duckling has turned into a swan!
Preity Zinta – IPL’s Dimpled Darling
Preity Zinta is like old wine, as she shows no signs of slowing down, even with age. The picture collage first shows PZ(yes, that is what she is called by her near and dear ones) in the Kings XI Punjab jersey, a black blazer-jacket, a black leather purse and over-sized shades. Minimalistic but effective. Preity is then seen in a red one shoulder gown with black waist embellishment and a black clutch. The oomph factor is amiss and the outfit seems too run-of-the-mill to us. Next, Preity is seen in a salwar suit in the red and grey theme of her team. Elegant but not really suited for on-the-field action. Find another way to grab eyeballs, Preity. Preity is then shown in a black and white polka dotted knee-length number with a silver clutch and sandals. Elegant and so full of her characteristic effervescence, we’d like to say! Lastly, Preity Zinta is seen in a rocker chic avatar with black boots, faded skinnies and a simple white T-shirt. Really pleasant but lacks the spice, we rule! Preity needs to think of a new hairdo and be more adventurous(poker straight hair is passe).
Deepika Padukone- IPL’s Lissome Lass
Deepika Padukone is definitely a photographers’ delight and she reinstates our faith in her fashion sense every time she steps out for an event. In the first picture of the collage, Deepika Padukone is seen in the Royal Challengers Bangalore jersey, skinny three-fourths, a brown belt, gold-silver ballet flats, a sling bag and a chunky watch. Hats off, Ms Padukone. Next, Deepika is seen in a blue strappy top, denim shorts and golden accessories. We laud her knack for plugging the most in-vogue garment of the season, denim shorts, into her wardrobe so well! In the next pic, Deepika is seen in a sleeveless white top and navy blue trousers, coupled with a beige-grey bag. Very clever indeed. The next click shows her in a black team jersey, black three-fourth trousers, a brown belt and black loafers. Sporty fashion that upholds the integrity of the oft-used statement- ‘less is more!’
The King of IPL – Sharukh Khan
Sharukh Khan has a very understated yet sexy sense of style. For him, it is more about wearing what he feels comfortable in, while sticking to the staid and dapper! In the first in the sequence of pictures, SRK is seen in a black blazer, jeans and shades. Sophisticated yet laid back, we are mighty impressed with him. In the next snap, Khan opts for a pithy white shirt and black trousers. Only a man of SRK’s standing can pull off such an uncomplicated look with such elan! Next, King Khan goes in for a blazer in his team, Kolkata Knight Riders’ color, purple, jeans, white casual shoes and a black inner tee. All this with a stylish ponytail to bring it all together. Style is just an attitude for the king of Bollywood.
The IPL 5 Opening Ceremony
It sure is ironic that we are talking about the IPL 5 opening ceremony towards the end but we reserve the best for the last. From the casual outfits of the IPL Extraa Innings anchors and Priyanka Chopra’s striped ensemble to Salman Khan’s black and pink outfit and Kareena Kapoor’s shimmery culotte pants, the opening ceremony sure packed in a lot of punch in terms of the glamour quotient. Feast your eyes on the montage of pictures above. Get inspired by your favorite celebrities and look hip this IPL season.
