AB on KBC & his colourful wayfarers
Okay! So if I ask you about one Bollywood celeb whose signature style has come to be associated with his eyeglasses, I’m sure there would be one unanimous answer.
It’s Amitabh Bachchan – the Angry Old Man of B-town.
Deep and magical voice, great personality, the warm welcome on KBC set and the spectacles of this KBC host, especially the Wayfarers just go hand-in-hand.
With ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ becoming Grand in its 7th season, there has been a lot of change in the dressing style of this Shehenshah of Bollywood. The suave and sophisticated spectacles which primarily consisted of Wayfarers have changed. This time it is a combination of round specs and the squared Wayfarers. But the colour contrast!?
I think AB’s designer has given a 180 degree makeover to his specs. They were never so colourful, vibrant and kind-of quirky. And, they match either his coat or scarves!
This is what Big-B wore for promos of KBC-7. Did you notice those cheeky blue frames with orange temples? Nah..! Okay have a closer look.
So Bright background and the choice of colours amaze me. I never ever thought of Big-B donning such not-so-common at his age spectacles.
Here are some other avatars of this most famous Grandpa.
Red frame! Very unusual but very eye-catchy. Aren’t they?
Well, these wayfarer frames inspire me to Go Green.
Great choice I must say.
These tortoise patterned round specs suit him so perfectly. Notice that hint of red on temples.
Again a different looking pair of Wayfarers but, thank God, it is classy this time.
White temples and black frame in his trademark wayfarer style. These are something anyone would crave for.
Now all you readers would be wanting some or the other pair from this collection of AB. Here is a help for you. These are some of my picks inspired from Bachchan Saheb’s looks.
