And summer is here! It’s time to plan those beach sojourns and unwind! While we carefully curate our vacation wardrobe and unfailingly pack that bikini, swimsuit or tankini, we seldom deliberate on the airport look. Heady with excitement, we eagerly look forth to donning those much-loved vacation outfits and tend to don the most comfortable outfits while traveling that may not be chic always. But fret not! The tinsel town celebs, who have mastered the art of impeccable travel dressing by blending comfort and style, are here to lend us style lessons. These celebs jet zoom frequently and adding miles to their air travel and milestones to their airport style, invariably show us trends that can be effortlessly pulled off while traveling.
This week’s best-dressed airport celebs include tinsel town divas Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra and Huma Qureshi. But upping men’s fashion quotient were poster boys of Bollywood like Shah Rukh Khan, Students of the Year, Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra along with Shahid Kapoor. Here’s a quick style recap that you might have missed over the week.
The global diva who garnered accolades for her on-screen role of Serena Unger in the global blockbuster, xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, also aces airport travel every time she jet zooms to fulfill her Hollywood commitments. Making her front row fashion week foray at the recently concluded New York Fashion Week, Deepika Padukone was spotted last week at the Gillette Venus Breeze launch in the city. Leaving for LA for the 10th Annual Women in Film Pre-Oscars 2017 cocktail party, Deepika Padukone hobnobbed with Meryl Streep, Brie Larson, Emma Stone, Freida Pinto and other powerful women in Hollywood. Taking athleisure to a glamorous level, Deepika Padukone flaunted her high-end luxe Chanel jacket thrown casually over a white tank and uber-comfortable loose pants. A light blue Gucci handbag and a pair of dark sunnies rounded up her cool yet casual travel look.

On her return from Dubai where she turned showstopper for the brand Splash, Katrina was snapped in a khaki colored shirt with faded denim and a black trench casually thrown over her arms. Donning boots, Katrina’s ombre sunnies matched her ombre dyed hair perfectly. (Katrina Kaif is making a fashionable Splash in Dubai!)
Where do we even begin with this poster girl of the coolest airport travel? Currently, on a promotional spree for Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Alia has been up and about, zooming in and out of Mumbai to Jaipur and Delhi. Snapped in three amazing airport looks, we absolutely loved her three looks. The first featured frayed boyfriend denim with an olive green tee neatly tucked and teamed with sneakers while the second comprised faded and frayed denim teamed with a white sweatshirt that had long puff sleeves and pretty pink velvet band detailing. The third was a bandhani jumpsuit by Nupur Kanoi with a matching long jacket and paired with comfy sneakers.
With his on-screen Dulhania being a sartorial dresser, the dulha aka Badri too pulled up his stylish socks and flaunted two cool airport looks. The first look comprised of a classic white tee-khaki pants combo with a monochrome jacket and sturdy black trainers while the second look was that of a blue flannel shirt, stone-washed frayed denim, trainers, and a woolen cap. This is certainly our favorite look! (When Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan went color-twinning in Black and Blue for Badrinath Ki Dulhania promotions!)
And there’s only one Queen in Bollywood-Kangana Ranaut. Making heads turn with her stylish strut or unapologetic opinions, Kangana seldom disappoints. She was snapped sporting two crisp airport looks, one comprised a glam straight out of a promotional event in Delhi for Rangoon that comprised a three- piece pantsuit from H&M and an inner waistcoat worn as a bustier while the second look featured classic white tee & blue fitted denim with a cherry colored jacket thrown over and pointy toes. (Kangana Ranaut switches from looking sensational to chic all in one day!)
The stylish and quirky Rangoon actor, Shahid Kapoor was snapped in an all black avatar of a tee, cut-out denim, and a long coat while departing for Delhi and in an all white avatar of a tee and skinny denim while returning. We absolutely love how the actor has contrasted his all white look with a black cap and black sneakers. An olive colored duffel added a dash of color while the coffee mug upped his casual vibe in the black look! AND his beard game was on point, as always!

Arriving from Delhi, Sidharth Malhotra donned Scotch and Soda jacket, Zara staples of a white tee and frayed denim, Rick Owens shoes and Tom Ford sunnies. Donning separates from Zara and H&M, Sidharth Malhotra zoomed straight out of Shahid Kapoor’s pre-birthday bash to Delhi.
Shah Rukh Khan
The Raees King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan was snapped in a black knitted tee that was frayed on one side and teamed it with camouflage pants. Wearing a quirky pair of sunnies and color-blocked trainers, Shah Rukh Khan flaunted his signature floppy hair setting a million hearts aflutter.
While she is known for her unabashed acting, Parineeti Chopra has also been treading quite well on the style ground. Making a witty style statement with her Merry Pugmas sweatshirt teamed with glossy ankle-dusting leggings and metallic trainers, Parineeti zoomed off to Egypt for a shoot and shared quite a few pictures on Instagram.

The versatile actress, Huma Qureshi who is all set to impress everyone with her performance in the upcoming flick, Viceroy’s House, also made quite a few sartorial style statements at the recently concluded London Fashion Week and at the red carpet premiere of the movie. On her return, she brought with her a distinct style game of an all-black travel wear that featured a black V-neck tee, severely distressed denim, jacket and a roomy tote. A pair of white trainers rounded up her look perfectly. (Huma Qureshi looks stunning as she walks Berlin International Film Festival 2017 red carpet for ‘Viceroy’s House’)
