Shahid Kapoor – We all love the chocolate boy of Bollywood who charmed his way into our hearts with his innocuous and charming looks right from his debut in Ishq Vishq. All along, Shahid has consistently modelled himself into one of the suavest and fashion aware actors of tinsel town! Shahid’s unconventional style game conspired with fashion stylist, Anisha Jain pre-dominantly features the much-loved vibe of monochrome. Born on February 25, 1981, Shahid Kapoor has displayed his penchant for the monotones and even infused grunge undertones to it with a slick haircut and trimmed beard and moustache coupled with an enviably chiselled body. Riveting and resonating with his easy persona, Shahid Kapoor has infused the trusty monochrome into the reigning concepts of styles like smart casuals, off-duty (read: athleisure) and back to basics! Keeping the fashion lovers and fans alike hooked to his affair with the monochrome, Shahid and his astonishing style reincarnation boast of a whopping 12.7 million followers on Instagram!
