ET Awards 2019 Dress Code: KM Birla, Aditya Ghosh Look Dapper In Suits; Aditi Premji Stuns In Perfect LBD, Dada Goes Casual

CEO, OYO Hotels & Homes - South Asia
“When I first saw the dress code, I went out and bought a red tie.”

Chairman, Aditya Birla Group
Birla goes bold in a lime green tie with a floral pattern. He completes his suave look with monk strap shoes and rimless frames.
A Pop Of Pink
Aditi Premji’s LBD offers the perfect foil for her orange and pink shoes and matching shawl to stand out, disrupt and impress.
A Unique Shade Of Grey
CMD, Oberoi Realty
“I just dress the way I like. My wife Gayatri told me that everyone is going to be in black or blue, so when I was pulling my suits out, she told me to wear this lighter suit as it would be different and match the outdoor setting. I’ve paired it with a Gucci pocket square.”
Ganguly keeps it luxuriously casual in a checked Burberry shirt and trousers. His hot pink iPhone case makes sure he can always find it — day or night, Test or one-day.
CEO, Nykaa Retail
“I am a very simple dresser — I like to keep it basic. This jacket and pant combo is just something from my banking days.”

“I thought not wearing black would be disruptive at an event like this — everybody wears black — so I chose this suit instead. A little bit of colour.”
“I just feel that you should dress in what you are comfortable in. I wore trousers that I like, my Ecco (shoes) which are quite young and disruptive and a Massimo shirt which I love. You’d find me dressed like this any day of the year.”
Beauty In Black
CEO, Welspun India Ltd
“When I heard of the dress code, I wasn’t surprised. In today’s world of disruption, the theme is relevant. In a world of grey jackets, I thought I’d add some colour to the event and disrupt it. My shoes are Manolo Blahnik — they are my favourite and are just the most comfortable.”
Hint Of Orange
Co-founder, Avendus Capital
For the evening, the investment banker added a poppy orange tie to elevate his formal look. Not wanting to get too disruptive with his look, he restricted himself to picking this choice of bold colour. A fun T-shirt and cool sneakers, though, would have been his attire of preference.
