Watch: The man behind Modi's trademark kurta
Our politicians are known for preferring understated monochrome as their choice of attire, and the event was no exception. Newly elected minister, Arun Jaitley opted for a white jacket worn over a white kurta — a look that won our panel over. Apart from Jaitley, the sari-clad Najma Heptulla also got a high style score.
While Uma Bharti’s choice of the BJP’s signature saffron came as no surprise, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, also chose to add to the tangerine touch. Some colour was also added by Nitin Gadkari in a stylish midnight blue version which he wore over his kurta.
