Ah, it’s that time of the year again! Kicking it all off was the Life OK Screen Awards on Tuesday night. You saw how the women fared, now check out the men… ;-)

The Ugly

Cuban boots! Trousers puddling around the ankles! So much make-up! This is one disastrous red carpet outing from Ali Zafar.

These two are self-explanatory, aye?

Helloooooo Pulkit Samrat, which decade are we in?

Such fugly material these two suits are made from.

The Bad

What a waste of a gorgeous Tom Ford number! To work this electric blue velvet dinner jacket, you need to keep things sleek and uncluttered, but Ranveer Singh went overboard. There was no need for the waistcoat or the pocket square and the trousers needed to be tapered and hemmed, for this look to work.

These two would’ve been in the good section had they not buttoned-up both the buttons of their suit jackets.

Abhishek, mate, why so fusty and black? But Big B, dapper as always…

Karan Johar and Ayan Mukerji (in Versace) at the 20th Annual Life OK Screen Awards on January 14, 2014

Both the trousers are too long. K Jo has one-too-many attention-grabbing pieces, and even worse, he’s not working them.

The Good

What a fine dandy this Varun Dhawan is, non? Although a tad matchy-matchy and the trousers a little too long, this ensemble still gets a thumbs-up from me for… the boutonnière!

Riteish Deshmukh at the 20th Annual Life OK Screen Awards on January 14, 2014
Riteish Deshmukh

How elegant does Riteish Deshmukh look in that bandhgala? Always helps when it’s as expertly tailored as Riteish’s. Proof? Check out the sleeves – they’re showing just the right amount of shirt cuff. And nice pop of colour by way of the pocket square (which could’ve been more neatly folded).

Both Farhan Akhtar and Kunal Kemmu scrubbed up nice in jodhpurs, non? There’s nothing separating these two here – more of this, please!

Rajkummar Rao at the 20th Annual Life OK Screen Awards on January 14, 2014

Very dapper indeed, Messier Rajkumar Rao!

Two words: über cool.

I’ve given up hope of ever seeing him in trousers that are of the right length, so that aside, nice effort from SRK. But that pre-tied bow-tie and wing tip collared shirt are just so wrong!

Manish Paul at the 20th Annual Life OK Screen Awards on January 14, 2014
Manish Paul

My vote for the best-dressed of the night, and it is do with that immaculately-cut three-piece. The fabric could’ve been less shiny, but that tie and those patent balmorals totally make up for it… ;-)
