Let me get this off my chest first: I was too busy with my day job when the Khoobsurat promotions were on, so I couldn’t gush over compliment Fawad Khan’s smashing sartorial run on these pages — each and every one of the looks was done to perfection. In other words, he really laid down the gauntlet for all Bollywood men then, and on Sunday night, at the 2014 HELLO! Hall of Fame Awards, he simply restated it.
Clad in a black double-breasted Dior Homme suit, generously starched white shirt, black slim Burberry London tie, white pocket square crisply done in a Presidential fold and shiny black brogues, he cut an impossibly sharp figure that night.
The dress code for the event was black and white and I loved how he played around with the restrictive theme to bring some visual intrigue to his look. Instead of going for a solid black tie, he opted for one with a tonal check design from Burberry London. In place of plain patent leather Oxfords, he stepped out in brogues. And of course, special mention for the fit of his suit: no extra fabric flapping about his ankles and we can see half an inch of his shirt cuffs. Monsieur Khan, my hat is well and truly off (and for that, major credit goes to Abhilasha Devnani, I guess).
PS: On any other day, Abhishek Bachchan would have been my pick for the best dressed of the night with this get-up — heck, he even threw in a boutonnière!
