Ace de­sign­ers say a bit of tweak­ing up would do won­ders to Naren­dra Modi's sharp and crisp look

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics - VI­JAYA RATHORE

On May 11, Pad­mashree fash­ion de­signer Wen­dell Ro­dricks sug­gested in one of his tweets that In­dia's new PM Naren­dra Modi's lips re­sem­bled those of Hol­ly­wood beauty An­jelina Jolie's, while also com­ment­ing his ri­vals like Arvind Ke­jri­wal and Rahul Gandhi.

“Fash­ion con­fu­sion to choose be­tween Modi's #An­jelina Jolie lips, Rahul's Cameroon Diaz dim­ples or Ke­jri­wal's Streisand per­fect fin­gers,” read the tweet.

Like this tweet, there is a lot be­ing said and dis­cussed in the fash­ion com­mu­nity about Modi's looks, style, fash­ion, body lan­guage and more.

Fash­ion ex­perts and ace de­sign­ers say Modi had al­ready made a style state­ment with his “crisp and sharp” In­dian look, and just a bit of tweak­ing up would work won­ders while he is in the hot seat.

“Since his pro­file has changed, his look should be more in­tel­lec­tual with a shade of lux­ury,” says JJ Valaya, main­tain­ing that Modi's cur­rent In­dian look with his sig­na­ture Kurta Pay­jama should never be com­pro­mised. who would not want to change much about him. “There could be a few add ons like a con­tracts col­lar with the jack­ets and may be pocket squares,” says Mal­ho­tra, who also rec­om­mends navy blue colour, “the new black” for Modi go­ing ahead. What will Modi wear for his swear­ing in on Mon­day? While all eyes are on Modi to see how he plans to take In­dia for­ward, people are also cu­ri­ous to know even smaller de­tails like what he will wear on the day of his swear­ing in. It is learnt that Modi's per­sonal tai­lor Bipin Chauhan has al­ready made a few gar­ments for the spe­cial day for him to choose from. Chauhan, how­ever, de­clined to com­ment on the specifics or pro­vide any de­tails. Modi has caught fancy of many de­sign­ers, from lesser known to the most pop­u­lar ones, who would love to dress him at the first op­por­tu­nity. Ritu Ku­mar says she would love to de­sign a Bandi, the In­dian waist­coat, for him. ET asks de­sign­ers to sketch the Modi look.
