Top 10 Hottest Covers of 2013



     
Femina August: The special issue of Femina celebrated the leading ladies from the 100 years of Indian Cinema with Deepika Padukone. Deepika is seen gracing the August 2013 cover in two contrary outfits. Deepika retains her ‘Cocktail’ look with the loose off shoulder top and printed skirt. On the contrary, she adorns a gold and black lehenga by Sabyasachi. Chic and Royal has won our hearts!

Verve July: Esha gupta was tagged as the ‘Pop art Diva’ by Verve Magazine. Sporting a green bandana, Valliyan’s gold ear cuffs, and turquoise eye shadow, Esha has certainly lured the audience! We are loving the contrasting vibrant colors. Very funky!


Grazia April: Frieda Pinto adorns the Grazia cover in a cut out Atsu blouse and Jewelled armor by Valliyan. The cover is sharp, bold and fierce. With no quintessential poses, pouts or smiles, we cannot take our eyes off Frieda’s jet black fringes and the Valliyan armor. Kudos to Ekta Rajani!

Grazia March: The one and only underwater cover shot by Colston Julian featured Angela Jonsson. She looked scintillating in a Rohit Gandhi+Rahul Khanna embellished blouse and a Dior necklace. Posing and looking pretty at the same time underwater must have been tricky! All we can say is ‘WOW’

FHM January: This Sri Lankan beauty sizzles in an unzipped denim jumpsuit and a polka dot bikini. Cute and raunchy at the same time! She adds a pop of color with the Orange wayfarers. All we can picture now is Jacqueline at a car wash with that bandana and soft beach curls.


Harpers Bazaar October: Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan raised the temperature with their sizzling chemistry in the October Bridal Issue of Harper’s Bazaar. This exotic photo shoot take place in the Maldives where Kareena is seen wearing an Alberta Ferreti purple gown while the Nawab wore an off white Tom Ford suit. Wouldn’t we all love to do a photo shoot with our beloved in the Maldives??? Yes, we would!


Elle September: Dark skinned beauty Lakshmi Menon lures the camera and our attention in the Elle India cover. After the demise of Prabuddha Das Gupta, she had been off the paparazzi radar. She was back with a bang with a pixie haircut, fierce ear cuffs and a Gucci Fall dress.


Filmfare January: This Filmfare issue is not less than any sugar high! Unlike the other nagging ladies who are behind their respective men, reminding to shave! We would request Ranveer to grow that Ram Leela moustache again! Yes, he looked smokin’ hot with that moustache and his perfectly sculpted body! Why, Ranveer, why did you have to shave??


Elle October: The Style Icon of Bollywood looked sensational in a regal blue gown with mesh details by Amit Aggarwal, spiked maang tikka and a Ear Cuff by Suhanie Pittie. The cover was shot in the beautiful city of Istanbul. From the dresses, accessories and to the interview, this issue is inspiring!


GQ August: Here is some eye candy for the men out there! Sonam Kapoor was seen in probably the sexiest shoot in the August issue of GQ magazine. The Bollywood style icon spoke about her personality and sex appeal. She raised the temperatures in a Red bikini by Atsuko Kudo. The boys wouldn’t have missed her cleavage peek-a-boo!

P.S.- Ranking in no particular order.

Dhoom 3: Hot or Not???



Costume Review:

Bollywood movies have become popular for their out an out plagiarism. We were familiar with the copying of the plot, the soundtrack and now with the release of the much awaited film Dhoom 3, the noticeable costume resemblance. 
Remember the Dhoom 3 poster featuring the silhouette of Aamir Khan against the twilight lit city foreground?? Well, that was copied too!

With all due respect to the costume stylists for Dhoom 3, I have only one question. Were you running out of clothes or just more ideas??

We were in awe of Katrina’s hip shaking moves in the title track as well as in the song ‘Kamli’. But choreography alone cannot entertain the audience. Not only did the plot leave us disappointed but also did the costumes.

Let’s take a look at who wore what and the Copy Kat!

 The red bodysuit with gold tassels resembled Rihanna's outfit from one of her stage performances. The only noticeable difference is that the color of Riri's bodysuit was gold and silver.
 I simply adore Nikhil Thampi and all his creations! Especially this very belted thigh high slit gown. Beyonce created a rage with her song "Girls(Run the World)" and hence one cannot fail to observe the imitation.


 First Kangna Ranaut and now Katrina. Yes, we all would like to be Anne Hathaway from The Dark Knight Rises. But, we do not get inspired oops. did I say inspire?? Err, we do not copy her costume!
Did Kangna copy Anne? or did Kat copy Kangna?? 





 Beyonce is a style inspiration for one and all. Yes, and even for our dear Kat. Beyonce wore these red suede Casadei boots in her Mrs. Carter World Tour. Katrina took a leaf from her and wore the same in gold.














No, this time we are not talking of Katrina. But, Aamir Khan. Yes, the Mr. Perfectionist has lost some perspective in his styling or maybe he has been preparing for Ghaijini 2?
Mr.Khan is seen wearing the same white suit with a black bow. Notice the same pose too??







Bollywood Vs Hollywood has always been prevalent when it comes to costumes. But, Bollywood Vs Bollywood??
Which color do you like the most?
The neon green bralette worn by Priyanka Chopra for her debut single 'Exotic' or the fuschia pink worn by Katrina in Dhoom??




 Wasn't this transparent glittery dress passé?? Jennifer Lopez gave a scintillating performance in this dress at the American Music Awards in the year 2011. Two years later, our very own Priyanka was seen in a similar dress in her debut single 'Exotic.' And now, Katrina didn't shy away from the limelight after copying the same dress. 






 Yes, again Priyanka Chopra and her exotic costume. Frankly, we are tired with this copy Kat.

What to Wear on New Year's Eve for Women

New Year's Eve is one of the occasion's where all eyes are set on Who's wearing what and who is wearing whom(high street or luxury)??
Let's just say that your New Year outfit is just as important as your high school prom dress or your birthday dress.
For me, New Year's Eve, is just another excuse to dress up and flaunt my outfit with my sophisticated hair up-do.

For all the lazy and busy bee's in town, here I am with my Top 5 Fabulous finds on What to wear on this New Year's Eve:

New Year's Eve is all about the glam quotient.
Try this sequined blazer from Koovs.com if you want to go towards the separates route. Team it with your plain black bodycon dress or with a pair of jeggings and a button down oxford shirt and you are all set for the night!
P.S. You are allowed to go over-the-top.

Price- 2695/-

From a size zero to a size eight, this orange maxi dress from Pretty Secrets (Limeroad.com) is bound to look stellar!
For all the voluptuous women, here is a heartfelt fashionable request to quit that diet you took to get into your old dress, for a maxi dress should be your new best friend.
We as women fear of exposing our thighs and the not-so-good-looking fat legs. A maxi dress is a great cover up for that paunchy stomach and the not so flattering thighs.
 P.S.- You no longer need to wax your legs.

 This Black and White Striped knit pant from Myntra.com is one of my favorite budget buy's!

Monochrome just got sexier with these pants!

I am loving all things Poncho and Kaftan's this winter season.
Pair this embellished poncho dress from Jabong.com with embellished or glittery stilettos, a statement necklace and an ear cuff. 

When wearing a poncho dress, I would advise you all to stick to just one color.

A pink one shoulder gown from XOXO clothing for the girl next door. What I really love about this gown is that it sophisticated as well as dramatic.The focal point of an off shoulder dress is the neckline. Hence, make sure you have your pretty baubles ready!
Dangling earrings can be really attractive. Color block the outfit with your accessories.
Do not forget your dreamy pair of shoes.
