Mumbai's Most Stylish Timeless Couple

They are indeed the timeless couple of Bollywood. Dilip Kumar, respectfully addressed as Dilip saab, apart from being an actor par excellence, is always well turned out in a crisp suit, even at the age of 91. His gorgeous wife, actor Saira Banu, too, has always been ahead of her times when it comes to her dressing.

Well-fitted saris which were tied below the waist, the perfect make-up with black, winged eyeliner, and peppy, coloured skirts and dresses were some of the major fashion trends of the late '70's and early '80s that Saira Banu donned with ease and flair. She changed the image of an Indian woman in a sari, and made it look scintillating.

The fact that she made it all look so simple was perhaps the reason why many young women sought to emulate her. Likewise, Dilip saab was all about easy elegance and charm. Not only was he every woman's dream man, he was also one of the most stylish men in the industry. Dilip saab is always dressed for the occasion, and manages to charm everyone around him with his wit and humour. Even today when the couple makes an appearance, they manage to be the centre of attention.
