The handsome Khiladi can make a style statement in a pink pathan suit. So a gold trench coat is obviously no biggie.

Be it the casually clad engineer of Swades, the sporty coach of Chak De! India, the dhoti-clad drunk lover of Devdas or the happy-go-lucky hipster of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge or the superstar playing superstar in shiny costumes of Billu, King Khan carries every look with aplomb.

A superhero is mainly about two things: power and costume. Abhishek Bachchan disappoints on both fronts in Drona.
 
Instead of some cool spandex, the actor wears an understandably exhausted look in all those kilos of golden zardozi.

The usually suave and trendy Saif Ali Khan gets into Tashan's crazy mood for the song Dance maare.

And this is what happens when the short-lived sensation Kumar Gaurav takes the film's title a tad too seriously.
 
Posing against a star-shaped cardboard, the actor screams for attention in a costume where the tag probably reads Made from Pixie Dust.

Bollywood doesn't take any dance competition seriously unless the actor slips into something snug and shiny.
 
And so Sanjay Dutt and rival Shakti Kapoor easily comply for Rocky's chartbuster, Aa dekhen zara.
