John Abraham’s 41 years of uber cool style
The Style God turns 41 today (December 17). John Abraham – the undisputed style emperor of Bollywood – continues to rule hearts, even after a decade of his presence in the Tinsel Town.
From a former supermodel to actor and now a successful producer, John Abraham has come a long way. But one thing hasn’t changed over time – his bold and flamboyant style. Be it films, promotions, photo shoots, ramp shows or public appearances, the style icon never fails to charm us.
A self-confessed eyewear-addict, John has an enviable collection of branded sunglasses that are as voguish as the man himself.
On his birthday, let’s take a look at the eyewear fashion of John Abraham.
You could easily term him as the brand ambassador for Aviators. John has a fascination for those rugged military-style sunglasses which give girls more reasons to drool over this hunk! Donning dark-toned Aviators in films like Madras Cafe, Shootout at Wadala, Force and Race 2, John did make a casual statement, but also got noticed.
Whether it’s the green-golden Ray Ban Aviator from Madras Cafe or the brown retro Aviator he wore in Shootout at Wadala, John manages to look awesome in every eye gear.
And in real life too…
Not just in reel-life, John’s love for Aviators continues in his real life too. These iconic sunnies, synonymous with uber-cool style, have accompanied the birthday boy in his daily life too. And whether he’s at a promotional event or simply hanging out, John carries them off with panache!
Experimenting with styles
John’s also stunned the style pundits and his fans alike by getting into the Wayfarer mode in I, Me aur Main. Boy, he looked super cool! And we kept wondering whether to hate the spoilt brat Ishaan Sabharwal (his screen name) or fall in love with his haute looks.
Not just Wayfarers, John looks amazingly stunning in the biking sunglasses as well. Being an avid biker himself, he has a natural knack for perfect sunglasses. No wonder John was chosen as the brand ambassador of Fastrack in 2005.
Eyeing it right too
Move away sunglasses! John makes eyeglasses a style statement too. Remember his vintage round golden Gandhian eyeglasses in Water? He looked incredibly handsome even in the dhoti-kurta. Even in Jhootha Hi Sahi, John gave a whole new dimension to the good-boy-next-door look in those geeky black Wayfarer eyeglasses. “Our desi Clark Kent?”
Nerdy never looked this cool, right? Well, searching for similar eyeglasses that John wore, I stumbled upon these awesome specs.
John Abraham’s eyewear fashion is just the way he is – cool, casual and comfortable. And that’s how it should be.
Here’s wishing John Abraham a very Happy Birthday! Stay in style. Forever!
