From his trimmed beard to his hairstyle to what he wears, Indian star cricketer and youth icon Virat Kohli feels overjoyed about being appreciated for his fashion sense. He says he finds it fun to experiment with his style and looks from time to time.

On being idolised as a fashion icon, Virat told IANS in an e-mail interaction: “It sure feels good to know what you wear is well appreciated and liked by all. My sense of style and manner of dressing have evolved over the years. I know what kind of attire looks good on me, and I mainly work around that. It is fun to try out something different from time to time.

“I often work closely with my stylist and share inputs while deciding my look.”

Virat is 29 and is at the top of his game. The Delhi-born India skipper has represented the city’s cricket team at various age-group levels before he debuted for India in 2006.

He is extremely fit as he maintains a disciplined workout regime.

How does he manage his fitness regime in the middle of an important series and while on breaks?

“Whether I am in the middle of a series or on a break, I maintain a disciplined regime. My level of fitness has a direct impact on my game; therefore I train hard and follow a strict diet,” Virat said.

During a vacation, he does not miss his gym routine.

“While on break, I go to the gym five times a week, and clock in minimum two hours. Even if I am on tour, I still ensure that I exercise for an hour and a half. I do a combination of weights and cardio exercises, and rarely indulge in cheat days,” added Virat, who married actress Anushka Sharma last December.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper launched the first performance footwear from the brand evoSpeed One8 for Puma. He says he is conscious about his own footwear.

“I am quite particular about my footwear on and off the field. The right footwear makes a remarkable difference on completing a run or affecting a runout.

“To play long hours in a test match, you need something that will give you cushion and comfort so that you can last for five days. You need stability and protection for your feet to stay injury free as you are playing back-to-back cricket,” he said.

He, however, likes the traditional white for his own sneakers.

“I prefer the traditional white colour while batting and I like to experiment with colours when fielding. Off field, I like to keep a neat look. I prefer wearing white sneakers,” he added.

Actress-Kareena-Kapoor-Khan

Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan brought down the curtains of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 on Sunday as she walked the ramp for designer duo Gauri and Nainika.

Donning a matte black, layered gown, the actress looked a vision in black as she strutted on the ramp amid a grand set which looked no less than a castle.

Models walked the ramp wearing occasion wears that were partly inspired by the Victorian era, shimmery evening gowns, jumpsuits, skirts and dresses in solid colours like powder blue, black, brown and green. Floral motifs, 3D floral embellishments, frills and sequins dominated the collection. There was a strong hint of a shine, shimmer and botanical-inspired embroideries. The rubber boots which the designer paired with almost all the outfits were definitely a hit.

“Walking each season again feels very special. Thanks to Lakme I’m getting a chance to strut for the best of the best. This feels more special because of Gauri and Nainika. We embody the power of women. The freedom of what women want, whether it’s (about) being married, wanting to work, wanting to make your voice heard,” Kareena told reporters here.

Explaining the collection, Gauri said that her collection is “super feminine and glamorous”. She said the lineup was inspired by #FreeYourLips – Lakme’s beauty statement from the season.

“It’s all about lightness and fluidity and freedom to live on your own terms. It’s about freedom of expression! You think of a woman that is empowered and that is who the theme #FreeYourLips is inspired from, Gauri told IANS.

She said: “It’s all about lightness and fluidity and freedom to live on your own terms. Our collection represents this. You will see how the silhouettes are an ode to the theme this season. It’s a mix of a lot of things. Being a finale collection, it’s a bigger one.”
