Mumbai: The Avengers: Endgame fever has gripped the whole world. In this Marvel production, Iron Man, seen battling Thanos, is played by Robert Downey Jr. Recently, the Hollywood actor did something that caught the attention of Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar and he shared that with his fans on social media: a Givenchy tie.
Robert Downey Jr is seen wearing a tie like Akshay Kumar. The latter posted this picture of the Iron Man juxtaposed with his own photograph where he is seen wearing a tie of the same design. Akshay Kumar added a funny caption to the collage: “When #IronMan wears the same tie as you,” he wrote on Twitter. He hashtagged #WhoWoreItBetter and also the brand Givenchy.
But Akshay did not forget to appreciate the Marvel movie.

One can’t be sure Robert Downey Jr would answer this question of Akshay, but Khiladi Kumar has made the statement that the Indian stars are not behind their Hollywood counterparts in the domain of fashion.
Givenchy, brand that Akshay tagged in his tweet
The brand in question is a product from Givenchy, a French luxury fashion and perfume house. It hosts the brand of haute couture clothing, accessories and Parfums Givenchy, perfumes and cosmetics. The house of Givenchy was founded in 1952 by designer Hubert de Givenchy and is a member of Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture et du Pret-a-Porter.
The most famous ambassador of the brand was Audrey Hepburn in films such as Sabrina (for which Edith Head claimed the Academy Award), How to Steal a Million and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Givenchy has attracted many celebrities, including the likes of Lauren Bacall, Babe Paley, Michael Norman, Greta Garbo, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlène Dietrich, Jacqueline Kennedy-Onassis, Beyoncé Knowles, Princess Grace of Monaco and even Wallis Simpson, for whom he created some special garment bags, preserving the duchess’ orders from the curiosity of clients.
They would later become known as ‘blue Wallis’. Today, Givenchy dresses the most famous Hollywood stars such as Cate Blanchett, Emma Stone, Lady Gaga, Julianne Moore, Julia Roberts, Rooney Mara, and now Akshay Kumar too.
