Indian Runway-Model-Turned-Actress Anushka Sharma Covers Filmfare Middle-East – July 2012

It’s not so much as a statement cover but Ms. Sharma does look pretty in a beige-ish pink sequins et sheer mini dress styled up with tousled locks, nude makeup and a simple black chain bag. Three hit films strong (Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, Band Baaja Baaraat & Ladies vs Vicky Bahl) with a film career that began in 2008, the former model discusses her upcoming film projects with ace directors Anurag Kashyap and Raju Hirani among others. The issue is available on international newsstands now or press/media representatives can request a digital copy at filmfare.com/magazine.

Side Note: The other headline on the cover quoting French-Indian actress Kalki Koechlin (wife of director Anurag Kashyap) as saying she cannot play Bengali village-girl is so hilarious. I don’t believe I need to read the magazine to figure out why she has said this and if you know what Ms. Koechlin looks like versus a Bengali village girl, you will be laughing at her statement too. I just love Kalki, she is one of my favourite new Indian actresses and a fabulous fashionista might I add. Nice to know she has such a healthy sense of humour and does not take herself too seriously. Hopefully, somebody will challenge her and cast her in this role she does not think she can do.

Open Note To Kalki Koechlin: Meryl Streep would never give such a quote! You can do it Kalki, don’t limit yourself. If Robert Downing Jr. could convincingly play an African-American in ‘Tropic Thunder’ without causing any racial uproar, certainly you can play a Bengali village girl. All you need is a tan and drop your Tamilian accent, the acting thing is already in the bag.

The Women of Bollywood Suit up for Vaibhavi Merchant’s ‘Taj Express’ Premiere

BLACK AND WHITE THEME?

WHO: Sonam Kapoor, Vaibhavi Merchant, Shobaa De, Anushka Sharma, Shraddha Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee

WHAT: Taj Express – The Musical (Premiere)

WHEN: July 2011

WHERE: Mumbai, India

FASHIONWIDGET’S VERDICT: And the most stylishly improved award goes to….Rani Mukherjee in her decent version of the LBD. The rest, well not so much. It’s worth mentioning that Sonam Kapoor is wearing an outfit designed by The Row (the Olsen twins brand). Anushka Sharma does not look like the fashionista-supermodel we’ve come to love here. What happened?

WORST IDEAS ON THE GREEN CARPET

Malaika Arora-Khan

We love Malaika but even our love can’t save this poor choice of an outfit from fizzling on a global stage. It’s ghastly.

Genelia D'Souza

She followed Malaika with this very boring colour and it didn’t do much for her either. Alexander McQueen clutch or not, this look is a NO-NO.

Lisa Ray

That necklace does not belong anywhere near this outfit Lisa, the dress is just too easy-breezy for such a statement necklace and what is up with the shoes? We expected more from you.
