Amitabh Bachchan is a legacy, an icon who has inspired people from all walks of life who continue to look up to Big B. As the evergreen 'Shehenshah' of Bollywood turns 80 on October 11, 2022, he continues to inspire people with his versatility and signature style . Dressed always to perfection in formal or informal looks, Amitabh Bachchan is a timeless style icon who has given us several memorable moments on and off-screen with his power-packed acting and awe-inspiring personality. Here's a list of his best-dressed moments that have been all the rage in men's fashion. 

A style icon in the ’60s and ’70s, Amitabh Bachchan’s bell bottom pants have seen more parts of the world than we will collectively see in our lifetime. In his role as Vijay in Deewaar, Amitabh Bachchan served his fans with a ground-breaking cinematic masterpiece and iconic outfit combinations that to this date are looked up to for fashion inspiration. Mr. Long Legs is still seen in his pair of swagger bell bottom trousers and a classic hoodie that can give the new fashion influencers a run for their money.

As age catches up, you’d think Bachchan Sahab will falter with his fashion choices. But no, the ultra-stylish AB Senior sports his hoodies with such ease and class that you will want to get one for yourself. Often seen sporting casual airport looks in a hoodie and track pants, the father-son duo gives us serious fashion and comfort goals.  

Whether he is heading for a shoot, movie screening or catching a flight, Amitabh Bachchan may be ageing, but he’s doing it in style.

Amitabh Bachchan’s style never fails to remind us that even the smallest accessory has the power to make a huge statement. So, when it comes to styling glasses, Big B pulls off the most quirky frames with such grace and ease that is only expected from a superstar like him. From wearing opaque rims to printed reading glasses, Amitabh Bachchan has quite the glasses collection, and we love them all.

When you think of Amitabh Bachchan, you think of his iconic French beard and striking sideburns. A trend that is probably now patented by Senior Bachchan. After all, they don’t call him a legend for nothing. Sporting a salt-and-pepper look with flamboyance, when he enters a room, people stop and admire his style and charisma because this 80-year-old continues to awe his fans. While he may have gotten rid of the sideburns, the French beard is a default style that complements every outfit he decides to wear.

It comes as no surprise that Amitabh Bachchan’s dress materials are sourced from the best ateliers in the world. Believed to be procured from Italy, Big B’s stunning collection of plush suits, ties, shirts and timeless Louboutins are specially designed for the star. The industry’s most well-dressed man is known for his collection of checked formals, opulent coloured jackets and exquisite tie knots that were long lost in the bibles of fashion. Sporting knots like the Trinity, Rose, Resurrection and Eldredge,  Amitabh Bachchan sets unrealistic standards for gentlemen in general.

Taking traditional loungewear to global events, Amitabh Bachchan’s dressing style is the epitome of effortless elegance. Often seen in a comfortable off-white kurta, pyjamas and a shawl, the actor has a marvellous collection of pashminas that he drapes with utmost panache. The kurtas range from minimalistic solids to luxe silk embroideries in muted colours to complement the actor’s calm persona.

A loyalist and collector of all things fine in life, Amitabh Bachchan is the unproclaimed King of Bollywood, and for good reason. One actor who does not shy away from experimenting with colours, prints and trends, every time Big B steps out he proves that age is just a number.
