While that was about Alia Bhatt’s fashion preferences and her on-point style game, do you know whom she considers as fashionista in Bollywood? In an interview with the Filmfare, revealing a discovery she had made about her beau, Ranbir Kapoor, Alia had said, “I always believed that Karan Johar was the Sonam Kapoor of men’s fashion. But now I believe it’s Ranbir Kapoor. He’s a hidden fashionista. In Bulgaria, he was ordering things just for fun. I saw so many new looks. One day he’d arrive in velvet, then one day in camouflage, then some coloured caps and pants... He’s smashing to a point where I’ve begun seeking his advice whether I should buy something or whether something is working or not. I’ve given the fashionista tag to Ranbir Kapoor. I believe Karan will happily give away that tag because he loves him too much.” (Also Read: Radhika Merchant Repeats Her Lehenga From Akash-Shloka's Wedding For Another Pre-Wedding Bash)
