While the ladies dazzled in casual chic at the IPL auctions, Ranbir Kapoor stole the show with his antics
The Indian Premier League (IPL) auctions might have missed actor Shilpa Shetty’s oomph this time, but other team owners made up for it by flaunting some chic fashion.
While co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, actor Juhi Chawla kept it crisp in a plain white monogrammed shirt, owner of Kings XI Punjab, actor Preity Zinta made for a pretty ­picture in her messy bun, sporting an ivory tee with the word, ‘Punjab’ around the waist.
In a black team blazer of her team tee, Mumbai Indians’ owner Nita Ambani went for a nerdy chic look in her cateye glasses. The surprise entry, however, was Bollywood charmer Ranbir Kapoor, who whizzed into the auction arena in Bengaluru, posing as an intern of a soft beverage brand.
Looking dapper in a casual blue tee and a pair of washed-out denims, the naughty Kapoor lad’s fun ­‘pouting’ photo were posted on Twitter, with not just the ladies but also the men, including, Royal Challengers’ owner, Vijay Mallya.
Meanwhile, ­fashion experts are impressed by the wardrobe choices of the celebrity team owners at this year’s auction.
“IPL is always tagged as a glam event but these celebs have broken the stereotype with the formal shirts and the blazers, thus portraying that they are here for serious business,” says fashion designer Jenjum Gadi.
Agrees designer Reynu Tandon, saying, “Their face value is enough to add glam so they’ve made an apt choice by dressing down.” Designer Anupama Dayal feels that by opting for casual chic, the celebs have beautifully integrated fashion with their personalities, keeping the sporty spirit intact.
