A recent survey by Yahoo! India, has revealed that Hrithik Roshan (18%) is the ultimate style icon of India. The online survey, conducted amongst a cross-section of Yahoo! users visiting our sites such as Movies, News, Lifestyle says that M.S. Dhoni (16%) and Shahrukh Khan (15%) are the other two celebrities following Hrithik.
Three-fourths of the survey respondents comprised the youth (aged between 18- 34 years). Interestingly, 42% of the survey participation came from users not residing in the top eight metros – clearly reflecting the expanding reach of the Internet in tier 2 cities, and the continued fascination of Indians with glamour and glitterati.
Meanwhile, ladies in the Tinsel town were also leading in five ‘style icon’ categories. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan (34%) is a clear winner as the celebrity who dresses best for the red carpet. Vidya Balan also along with her power-packed performances in Kahaani and The Dirty Picture sets the charts ringing with her unique fashion sense, say 32% respondents.
In the couples list Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan lead the list with 50% votes, while Pa Amitabh Bachchan with his magnetic personality wins the power dresser crown by a huge 56% vote majority, followed by Ratan Tata (19%) and Sonia Gandhi (9%).
Mr. Perfectionist Amir Khan has won the lead in actor for whom technology and style go hand in hand.
Despite the recent turbulent times, the ‘King of Good Times’ prevails in the minds of people, with 19% admiring Vijay Mallya for his distinctive sense of fashion. Bappi Lahiri’s gold chains and golden outfits 18% voted for him, followed by Ekta Kapoor (8%), Jayalalitha (6%), Gul Panag (4%) and Kalki Koechlin (3%).
In an interesting sway from the overall trend, Bollywood takes second place in this category with glamorous Nita Ambani winning over one-third of all votes, to become the most stylish celeb-wife, trumping Gauri Khan and Suzanne Roshan.
51% respondents voted for ‘Mr. Dependable’ Virat Kohli as having the best presence on the ramp, from the non model club followed by Dhoni coming second.
Last but not the least sylish mothers also had tough competition. Glamour queen Malaika Arora Khan is the most stylish celebrity mother, according to 37% respondents. Twinkle Khanna and Priyanka Gandhi tie for second place.
