The airport look phenomenon in Bollywood is widely known and the pressure put by the paparazzi to dress impeccably has been a topic of discussion on various occasions. From the fashion police judging everyone’s airport style to photographers clicking away, B-towners have to constantly plan and be aware of how they dress for a flight. With many celebrities confessing that they have a special wardrobe dedicated to airport outfits, the rage has reached new heights and some have now decided to speak up against it.
We clearly think this craze is highly unnecessary, and Bollywood’s style divas Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kajol seem to agree too. Off late, airport looks have managed to gather as much attention as red carpet appearances, where celebrities are often scrutinised for their style choices. In a recent media interaction, when Kareena was asked about how she felt about all the attention dedicated to her airport style, she said, “I think it’s awful’. Why should we have it? Why should we dress up to go on a flight? But there’s pressure. There has to be. Fine. But we should be as normal. You should allow us to be normal. Jeans, T-shirt… whatever!” Check out what she had to say:
Kajol on the other hand, when recently asked by Mid-Day, to give her take on the media attention toward airport dressing said, “I hate airport looks. It’s idiotic. It’s ridiculous to look perfect all the time. I am not walking in heels with perfect lipstick. After long flights, everyone looks like they survived a calamity. It’s fine.”
Apart from Kareena and Kajol, other B-town celebrities have also joined in to trash the paparazzi. Recently, Karan Johar mockingly said on twitter:
Haha! Well said KJo!
