Masala picks four fashion-forward former ﬂames whose style, unlike their relationships, have continued to shine bright.
- Once the hottest couple in Bollywood, John Abraham and Bipasha Basu had many iconic looks during their nine-year-long relationship. Here the sizzling duo posed for a photo, where the Bengali beauty donned a stunning anarkali with a chiﬀ on dupatta, while John looked dapper in simple yet stylish denim jeans, paired with a graphic white t-shirt and blazer.
- Boldly breaking the stereotype that exes cannot be friends, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor continue to set major fashion goals while putting past lovers everywhere to shame. The duo reunited for The Walk of Mijwan Fashion Show this year, as showstoppers for ace designer Manish Malhotra, sporting gorgeous ethnic ensembles. Deepika’s pearlescent lehenga with ﬂ oral motifs turned heads, while Ranbir looked majestic in a black Indo-Western sherwani with ﬂ oral embroidery.
- Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan arrived in style at the European premiere of Kites (2010). Dressed in a gold glittering gown, Sussanne was elegance personiﬁ ed with minimal makeup and accessories, while Hrithik reinforced his ‘Greek God’ status in a classy black tuxedo.
- Couples that twin, win! Former ﬂames Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty Kundra attended the Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi bash in 2008 wearing matching leopard print outﬁts. Shilpa’s love for animal prints is well-known, and while the giant red ﬂower might be a bit too much, the dress accentuates her curves perfectly. The khiladi’s daring avatar, on the other hand, might make you do a double take. But whether you love it or hate it, this slim-ﬁt shirt has gone down in history as one of Akshay’s most memorable looks.
