The awards, held annually, honour leaders from different fields who have made a significant contribution to their arena of work, and also have an inherent, effortless style sense.
This year, the star-studded function saw Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna being awarded India's most stylish couple, while Delhi's most stylish couple went to Dr Naresh Trehan and his journalist wife Madhu Trehan.
Though Twinkle could not make it to the event at the last minute due to a family emergency, Akshay more than made up for her absence with a hilarious PPT of how his own sense of style has evolved over the years.
And speaking of laughter, there was much to smile about as standup comic Tanmay Bhatt and Gursimran Khamba, who hosted the evening, sent the audience in splits with their jokes,made mostly on the winners of the evening.
Singer and actor Ali Zafar, who won the Most Stylish Import award added a musical touch to the evening as he strummed him guitar and sang, and even got actor Priyanka Chopra, who won India's Style Icon, female, to hum a few lines with him.
It was however, actor Anil Kapoor, the recipient of the Style Legend Award, who got most of the cheering from the crowd, and a compliment from his nephew, Arjun Kapoor, who won the Fever's Listener's Choice Award, when he said, "It feels embarassing to take an award for being stylish when you have Anil chahcu in the audience, who is so stylish and is ageing backwards."
A stunning fashion show by designer Manish Malhotra, who showed his latest Mijwan collection, added dollops of glam and beauty to the show.
