Mag Rack: What Do Deepika Padukone and Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan Have in Common?

Besides their killer looks and stunning beauty? Both actresses have now been seen paying fashion tributes to iconic Hollywood characters from blockbuster films on the cover of international magazines. Rai-Bachchan did it first back in February 2011 when she graced the cover of Vogue India wearing a Natalie Portman in ‘Black Swan’ inspired Dior couture feathered blazer. Now Padukone (on the cover of GQ India August 2012) pays tribute to ‘Catwoman’ Anne Hathaway’s character from the Hollywood summer blockbuster ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ dressed in a skin-tight corseted leather suit complete with a jewel encrusted cat-eye mask.

While Rai-Bachchan is still on maternity leave following the birth of her first child in November of 2011, Padukone will next be seen in the movie ‘Race 2’ opposite John Abraham and her current hit film ‘Cocktail’ co-star Saif Ali-Khan.

Mag Rack: Model/Indian Actress Diana Penty Covers Vogue India in Pucci – July 2012

I typically do not like mullet dresses but Diana Penty made me look twice when I spotted her in this lacy mini embellished showstopper’s frock this afternoon while browsing the magazine rack. The stunning former runway model who made her acting debut in the Bollywood hit movie ‘Cocktail’ alongside Deepika Padukone and Saif Ali-Khan, covers the current issue of Vogue – India. The issue is available on international newsstands as well as in abridged digital form at

The wonderful frock she is wearing is by Emilio Pucci

Mag Rack: Wow! Rachel Weisz Somebody at Vogue HQ is in Love with You!


Rachel Weisz

I was in conversation with a colleague of mine the other day and she happened to mention that she loved how simple British actress Rachel Weisz looked on the cover of Vogue UK right now. She also mentioned the blue Celine sweater worn by Weisz on the cover as well as how young and fresh the actress looked. I had not seen the cover, so I went online and did an internet search and to my astonishment, my search engine (Google) asked me which cover was I looking for. You see, Weisz has graced the cover Vogue in the UK and US no less than five times in the last ten years, in fact she is such a beloved Vogue cover girl that she even graced the cover of a special edition called Vogue Living in the Spring/Summer of 2008.

Rachel Weisz’s past Vogue covers

This discovery reminded me of a recent controversy regarding fellow British actress Thandie Newton who reportedly took issue with Vogue for not featuring enough women of colour on their covers. It was later revealed in an interview published in the Huffington Post that the award-winning actress, who also happens to be a style icon had never (as of 2011) graced the cover of the prestigious periodical. I took the liberty of doing a quick internet search before this write-up and as of June 2012, Newton still has not covered the coveted fashion bible.

So, Ms. Weisz (or Mrs. Daniel Craig) should consider herself super lucky.
