There are no two ways about Ranveer Singh's drama - love it or jest about his guts but there is no ignoring the fact that he is dandy and he knows it! Leading the pack of sartorially conscious men of the tinsel town who are intent on blurring the conformity with fluid fashion, Ranveer Singh applies the same formula of busting stereotypes, one role at a time with his style arsenal. A decade long stint in the industry has seen him tame the attributes of quirky, zany and outrageous with one-of-a-kind fashion game, spruced with his fashion stylist of many years, Nitasha Gaurav. Reinvention, whimsy and a whirlpool of unconventional cuts, hues and prints, certainly not for the faint-hearted, is a style story that needs to be told; especially today, as he turns a year older! The fashion frenzy unleashing duo, Ranveer and Nitasha has mastered the rare art of blending comfort with the unconventional. But what really sets the ball rolling is Ranveer’s magnanimous persona that always leaves his contemporaries and fashion pundits flummoxed and dazed. What began as a love for colours in 2015 has now snowballed into a full-fledged fashion avalanche featuring eccentric prints, bizarre cuts, high street fashion and dapper suits. The cherry on the rainbow cake top is his trusty accessories for most of his - whacky sunnies from the brand he endorses, Carrera and his much-loved Boombox.
A 2010 debut saw Ranveer’s barely-there style of easy-going casuals and floppy hair. 2013 saw Ranveer charm his way into our hearts with wifey Deepika Padukone in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela with long hair, stubble, a ribbed torso, casual but well-curated outfits. But 2015 saw Ranveer pull off his quirky card with the release of Bajirao Mastani, a strong moustache game aided by quirky suits and colourful athleisure and ethnic ensembles including a skirt. Cut to 2019, post-wedding shenanigans saw him dive deeper into quirkiness. Ahead, we rounded up a brief fashion capsule of some of his recent IDGAF moments.
