Insider’s View: #GroomingGuru at the GQ Best Dressed Men Party
Now I know that a lot of you readers out there are curious to know just what it feels like to attend one of the most fashionable parties in Mumbai’s social calendar. So I decided to pen down this blogpost just to give you a personal, insider’s perspective on the GQ Best Dressed Men party, which took place in Mumbai last month. Earlier on, right after the party, I had done a post on what I wore to the event. If you have’t already checked it out, here it is. Before you read on, let me remind you that this post is not so much about the Best Dressed Men’s list, nor is it about the candidates etc, because much has already been written about it. I aim to give you guys a first-hand account of what I experienced at the party with, of course, a dose of decoding looks, since that’s what I love most. Enjoy the read.
What do Akshay Kumar, Arjun Kapoor, Imran Khan, Karan Johar, Rajkumar Rao, Varun Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Vir Das and Nico Goghavala have in common besides the fact that they are all exemplary in the dapper department? They, along with 40 others have been chosen as the GQ Best Dressed Men in India for the year 2015. Before I start, let me tell you that the names mentioned above have been chosen randomly and in no particular order, for I cant possibly start my blogpost by naming all 50 of the candidates. (These also happen to be my favourites…but shushhh). Just like every year, the folks at GQ, the men’s fashion bible, threw a lavish bash at the Four Seasons Mumbai. This well-attended soiree was a celebration of style and sartorial elegance in all its splendour. We did spot quite a few celebrities and stylish gentlemen all around, and that goes without saying…
So guys, that was a small glimpse of my evening at the GQ Best Dressed Men party. My favourite men’s fashion magazine never disappoints when it comes to throwing a glamorous party. UrbanEye follows and supports GQ India vehemently and so should you.
