Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who turned 73 on Sunday, has captivated everyone’s attention with his fashion choices ever since he took oath in 2014. His sartorial sense has evolved over the years but continues to grab the spotlight.
On his birthday, let’s take a trip down memory lane and check out some of his most memorable looks.
On Independence Day this year, PM Modi wore a special multicoloured Rajasthani Bandhani print turban, in keeping with his trend of sporting special headgear. He paired it with an off-white kurta and churidar for the celebrations at the historic Red Fort.
A huge advocate for sustainable fashion, he was seen wearing a sleeveless jacket made of recycled materials during the annual summit of the G7 advanced economies in May this year.
