Mag Rack: Former ANTM Contestant/Bollywood Actress Nargis Fakhri Covers Marie Claire India – August 2012

Often criticised for over-accentuating her luscious lips, newly minted starlet Nargis Fakhri seems to be having the last laugh as she has landed yet another fashion magazine cover with just one movie (2011’s Roskstar) under her belt and just two years in Bollywood. The lovely maroon coloured long-sleeved crocheted dress and understated makeup really helped play up her exotic looks. Last month, she posed for the cover of the prestigious fashion glossy, Hi! Blitz.

Bollywood Fashion Update: Deepika Padukone Opts for a Sabyasachi Saree for the ‘Cocktail’ Premiere

Stylishly seen here on the cover of EYE (a section of the Indian Financial Express), former Indian supermodel turned actress Deepika Padukone is riding a tidal wave of popularity with the success of her recent films ‘desi boyz’ & the newly released ‘cocktail’ not to mention countless magazine covers that almost rival her days as a supermodel as well as numerous appearances promoting her brands. One such occasion was that of the world premiere of ‘cocktail’ in Mumbai last week where she debuted her newly curvy figure in a stunning 2012 bridal collection Sabyasachi saree. Previously in the week, she promoted the film wearing casual looks from Halston Heritage and Diesel, in all of which she looked on-trend and poised. See collages below for details on where to buy the looks.

Bollywood Fashion Update: Actress Deepika Padukone’s Style Tour Begins

She has just begun a whirlwind promotional tour for her upcoming film ‘Cocktail’ so we are guaranteed to see more fashion risk taking from the Bollywood showstopper. Preliminary reports are good. I have to say I wasn’t expecting to see her so elegantly decked out in a Sabyasachi Mukherjee lehenga saree on Sunday as she walked the red carpet at the Filmfare South Awards. The tie-dye skinny jean and tank top look seems in line with the fashion sense of her ‘Cocktail’ character (at least based on what I picked up from the trailers) and as we know actresses tend to dress up as their characters during the film’s promotion. She seemed to be back to being Deepika in a jumpsuit, black peep toe pumps and fuchsia clutch when she stepped out for more promotional duties with her co-stars Saif Ali-Khan (pictured) & Diana Penty (not pictured). What I like about her style is the fact that while she never seems to be trying so hard she never stops short of reminding us of her days as a supermodel with her choice of fashion statements.

Even as she graces the cover of Women’s Health India July/August 2012 gone is her usual high-octane style replaced with a more resort/beach carefree look in line with ‘Cocktail’ tentatively scheduled to hit theatres on July 13th. Yes, Ms. Padukone is in full ‘Cocktail’ promo mode and (while it may be asking for too much) I hope she lands the upcoming covers of L’Officiel and Hi! Blitz magazines just for the sake of glamour. 🙂

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

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.

French Model Laetitia Casta Unveiled as the New Face of Dolce & Gabbana Perfumes

French Model Laetitia Casta Unveiled as the New Face of Dolce & Gabbana Perfumes

You know, just the other day I was going through some old photos of the annual Cannes Film Festival and I spotted Laetitia Casta in quite few, walking the red carpet for L’Oreal (the official sponsors of the festival). I wondered why we hadn’t seen or heard from her in recent years (busy with family life I’m sure… she has three kids now).

Well, if you are a fan of perhaps the most popular face to grace those famous Guess advertisements then you’re in luck. Luxury designer brand Dolce & Gabbana recently unveiled the 34-year-old model as the new campaign ambassador for their line of perfumes.

Welcome back, Ms. Casta!
