Do you picture authors as those serious types who don’t give a damn about the way they dress? Do you think they can only create magic with books? Wait, some authors can even create magic with their looks! From being designer favourites to the coolest looking writers on the block, each of them has a unique flair when it comes to their wardrobe choices. We love how they’re upping their style game and making an effort to look good at all times. Here are India’s best dressed authors!
Jhumpa Lahiri: This Pulitzer Prize winner author is also a red carpet favourite. Her mystical eyes combined with her effortless and crisp dress sense makes her a glitterati regular. Classic silhouettes and classy formals along with delicate trinkets makes Lahiri a match made in fashion heaven.
Durujoy Datta: The contemporary author and script writer is not just loved by Bollywood, but also by the fashion circle. Datta won the hearts of millions with his killer looks and relatable novels. The writer keeps his ensemble simple, but experiments with colours and fabrics. We really heart how he keeps his clothes basic, but accessorizes just right to go with his vibe.
Shobhaa De: Sexy at 60, this controversy queen is a model turned novelist. We must say, the author has a pretty good dress sense and flaunts her saris elegantly with interesting blouses. Shobhaa De is the best advertisement for her books, and definitely stands apart in the author circle.
Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi
Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi: Shanghvi has been compared to authors such as Salman Rushdie for his writing style. Shanghvi’s works are classics and so are his styling choices. He keeps his look royal, mostly wearing Bandhgalas and Nehru jackets. The novelist loves dressing up inIndian formals and looks absolutely stunning in all.
Ira Trivedi: She’s a novelist, entrepreneur and speaker. She’s also a yoga teacher which makes her figure quite enviable. Trivedi has been an active part of the modeling industry, and hence, style comes to her naturally. Her petite figure and tendency to make the most of basic pieces makes her one of India’s best dressed authors.
Kiran Manral: Former journalist and full time mom, Manral is a clear winner in the best dressed race. The author of books such as ‘The Reluctant Detective’ and ‘Once Upon A Crush’dresses to her age. She looks elegant and switches between formals and traditional Indian wear easily.
