Glamour. It can be difficult to define, as one cannot always pinpoint what actually makes someone glamorous. It could be their personal style, the way they talk or even how they carry themselves. From red lipstick that adds that classic touch, to a cat eye that conveys sultry confidence, anything done right can ensure the glamour quotient. Have you heard the saying, “Glamour doesn’t take a day off”? That’s because people blessed with this X-factor manage to exude panache at all times with the help of their personality and charm – which ultimately makes them stand out in a crowd.
Although grace and glam are things lot of people strive for, not everyone gets it right. Something as simple as taking a trend and making it your own can ensure that you leave the right impression. As is our annual tradition, once again we’ve rounded up our picks of the city’s most glamorous men and women who impress with their unique style, alluring personality, and pure charm. Let’s get into this year’s glamorous list! --- Rubaina and Niharika
An extremely popular and successful architect, Aamir is a name that everyone in Hyderabad is familiar with – whether for his work, his love of cars and bikes, or his eclectic style of dressing. It’s no wonder then that he was our first choice for this year’s glamour cover. When asked what glamour means to him, he replied, “something vibrant with class and a little bit of humour”. Though Aamir’s personal style is quirky, he can always go classic if the event requires. But a lot of it even depends on his mood, he says. A sucker for sneakers, Aamir takes fashion inspiration from all his travels, although he never follows trends blindly. His style icon? “David Beckham,” he quickly replies. “He can go from casual to classic in no time.” Aamir is always impeccably dressed, but is most comfortable in a white shirt, a pair of jeans, and sneakers. His favourite accessory is a watch and his personal collection of watches is drool-worthy. With a charming personality, unique dress sense, and knowledge of almost everything under the sun, he’s a complete package!
