B-town's very own Big B is a classic example of it. The man may have his quirks with his choice of suits and his eyewear, but despite all that, his style quotient is always high. Here's us mapping the style evolution of the legend that is, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan.
Big B's early days saw him sport what were considered the 'badass' sunglasses of the time. But with that french beard and the salt and pepper hair to go with it, the look suited him just fine.
It was during his time as the host of 'Bigg Boss' Season 3 that Big B first donned bright red satins. But what became most popular at the time were his thickly rimmed eyeglasses that created quite the rage on the eyewear front.
Big B put his many avatars on display while playing host on 'Kaun Banega Crorepati.' But Season 7 gave Amitabh Bachchan a royal makeover so suave, we couldn't help looking on in admiration. Velvets and (silk) cravats, for the win.
Another movie, another avatar. The promotions of the 'The Great Gatsby' saw a trench coat clad Amitabh in blue and white stripes, which gave us some respite from his suits. Although, do notice how he remained true to him personal style with a pair of quirky loafers.
If it isn't his shoes, it's the eyewear that speaks volumes. Being quite the hoarder of the chicest eyewear in town, we've witnessed Big B's frames change colours and silhouettes, going from reds to browns, from aviators and wayfarers to finally settling on these tortoiseshell glasses.
If Big B's off-duty style is anything to go by, then comfort wear is what he swears by. Track pants and oversized hoodies with a little bit of jazz abound. Oh, and don't forget that statement-making footwear (again)!
When his comfort wear extended to his formal wear, the big bodied silhouettes were exchanged for breezy kurta suits with statement nehru jackets (having always been a fan of mandarin collars).
What's changed? Pocket squares. What hasn't? The shoes.
His latest avatar for the promotions of Pink saw Big B laying low in an all white ensemble paired with yet another statement accessory, shawls and footwear with tassels.
