Virat Kohli Turns GQ India’s August 2018 Cover Star And His Intense Look Is On Point

Get Daily Updates In Email

Virat Kohli- what will you say to describe him? Well, just a perfect song came to my mind that is made for this ace cricketer. Mohammed Rafi’s ‘Taarif Karoon Kya Uski’ is the song that suits him perfectly. The captain of Indian cricket team is transformed into a style icon.

Virat Kohli graced the cover of GQ India for the August issue and his intense look for the magazine is simply mind-blowing. Well, this is not the debut of the star with the magazine because he has come a long way since 2011 when he was first featured on the cover of the leading magazine. On the cover, he posed with his side profile and opted to wear classy stuff styled by Tanya Vohra. He is seen wearing a turtle necked jumper by Corneliana and coat by Canali.

Virat Kohli shared a cover photo on his Instagram official account and captioned it as: “No guts -No glory-No story! On stands tomorrow ✌🏻 @gqindia”

However, the official page of GQ India has shared all the picture from the shoot and has given the perfect caption for the intense and classy look of Virat. So, here you go:

It’s hard to imagine that this ripped, tatted, stylish hype beast with a perfectly manicured beard (he thinks it needs to be insured – do you agree?) has ever had a fashion misstep. Probably why @virat.kohli’s up to 5 GQ covers now.

While a media interaction with the magazine, Kohli spoke about the youngsters and their way to present themselves, “If you have tattoos, earrings or styled hair, you’re not stopped (at the junior levels) just because you’re flamboyant. It’s not like, if I style my hair or have tattoos, I won’t dive on the field because it’ll get spoiled,” he said.
