“AAMIR KHAN NEEDS A MAKEOVER!” AK­SHAY TYAGI WHO HE DRESSES Ar­jun Kapoor, Ir­rfan Khan, Ma­hesh Babu, Sid­harth Mal­ho­tra, Varun Dhawan

Hav­ing trained as a de­signer in Canada and taken part in fash­ion weeks there, Ak­shay says: “Since I was 10, I’ve been de­sign­ing bits of women’s wear. So how I ended up be­com­ing a menswear stylist, even I don’t know.”

When he landed up in Mum­bai in 2011, “broke, job­less and on my par­ent’s couch,” he joined Style Cell (started by style supremo Anaita Shroff Ada­ja­nia) and as­sisted on Hrithik Roshan’s styling for Kr­rish

3 (2013) and Bang Bang (2015). Has he ever been at the re­ceiv­ing end of a star’s tem­per tantrums? “No­body screams at you. You just don’t get any more calls.”

MOST CHAL­LENG­ING STAR TO DRESS...

Ar­jun Kapoor, be­cause he’s not a stan­dard size and skinny fits are in right now. But I found the prob­lem ar­eas and made sure he looked the best.

BEST DRESSED IN THE IN­DUS­TRY...

For ac­tual per­sonal style, I’d say Rahul Khanna.

STYLE BLUN­DER...

The Bang Bang trailer launch.

ONE INDIAN DE­SIGNER YOU LOVE...

I love Shan­tanu and Nikhil. A newer de­signer I swear by is Sahil Aneja.

CA­REER HIGH­LIGHT...

Ir­rfan Khan for In­ferno film pro­mo­tions in Italy. I think I changed the way he was por­trayed in terms of style – he looked cool and con­fi­dent in a Dior suit and Louboutin shoes.

SOME­ONE IN NEED OF A MAKEOVER...

Aamir Khan. Be­cause he’s not work­ing with his body pro­por­tions right.

WOULD LOVE TO STYLE SOME­DAY...

Amitabh Bachchan. He’s al­ways so well dressed!

FASH­ION IN­SPI­RA­TION...

I love Hus­sein Cha­layan, Comme des Garçons and Issey Miyake.

WEIRD­EST RE­QUEST...

To buy their un­der­wear. I’ve bought it. And trust me, they don’t stuff their un­der­wear when they wear it!
