Friday night was the biggie, the 59th Filmfare Awards – and it certainly didn’t disappoint in the style stakes. But don’t you wanna know who fared better than the rest? Read on… ;-)

The Ugly

These two need an award for conspiring to get in this section consistently!

Neil Nitin Mukesh and his obsession with those tacky pointy shoes… *facepalm*

With those pointy shoes, ripped denims and that dinner jacket, do you expect Fardeen Khan to be anywhere else?

The Bad

Yep, Salman Khan’s shoes are as tacky as Fardeen Khan’s, but that three-piece saved him from getting lumped in the previous section.

Bless, this boy tries and tries, and there’s always something that goes wrong.

Ah, Ranveer Singh! Trust him to always try too hard to walk away with the best-dressed plaudits of the night. Ranjit thought a flowerpot exploded on him and I suppose he got caught at the curtains at his grandma’s place. That aside, this Chapman brothers-designed dinner jacket from Louis Vuitton’s A/W’13 collection would have worked had he kept the rest of the look stark. But no, Ranveer had to go for the overkill and throw in those velvet loafers embellished with a teddy bear patch.

Not least, the fit issues of the jacket and the trousers.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Tusshar Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao need to take their trousers to the tailor’s, pronto.

Those fat lapels are seriously scary!

Kunal Kemmu narrowly misses out on a spot in the next section. This tendency of guys to do up all the buttons of the suit jacket needs to be strictly discouraged, that’s why.

The Good

That’s a cravat on Dhanush! Super spiffy.

Messrs Amit Sadh, Gulshan Devaiah, Taaha Shah and Saqib Saleem, very well played, gentleman, very well played. Special mention of Gulshan Deviah’s three-piece — it was tailored to perfection!

Ah, Shahid finally gets it right — and how!

What a run Farhan Akhtar is having this awards season! This is how you do ballsy, Ranveer Singh.

Ayushmann Khurrana at the 59th Filmfare Awards on January 23, 2014

But, my fave menswear look of the night came courtesy of Ayushmann Khurrana. He wore a made to measure Brooks Brothers suit. The impeccable fit aside, I loved how he opted for a windowpane fabric, patterned bow-tie and green pocket square to add intrigue to this black-tie look. Very deft, very understated — muy jefe!
