Shraddha on Elle

Another Bollywood veteran’s ladli daughter hits the Bollywood scene. This time it’s Shraddha Kapoor, daughter of Shakti Kapoor. I guess she must be famous for something (or maybe just being famous progeny) that she warrants a full cover of January issue of Elle.


Elle India November 2010


It’s refreshing, as always, to see new faces on familiar magazine covers. So this month’s Elle India cover includes Sendhil Ramamurthy and Sonia Dara. Sendhil may be familiar to some as he was on the popular show ‘Heroes‘ in the US. Sonia on the other hand, was unfamiliar to me but a quick Google search (and confirmation from my husband) uncovered that she’s the first Indian-American model to be featured on Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. Anyhow, both are looking more covered and lovely in the Elle photoshoot.

Genelia on Elle

Looking unrecognizable and in an uglified (designer I’m sure) outfit, Genelia graces the cover of Elle India’s July issue. At first glance, I actually thought this was Kangana on the cover but had to read the caption to know it was Genelia. I am not liking the cover at all, how about you?

Gaga on Elle

After the previous awful cover from Elle, am so glad to see this fun cover of Elle India with Lady GaGa on the cover, although it could have been more edgy but I’ll take it over Freida’s bum any day! The shoot was styled by Creative Director of Elle, Joe Zee (love love love!) and Gaga is wearing a Jil Sander dress and Vivienne Westwood shoes.

Freida on Elle


It was only a matter of time before Freida was showcased on most of the Indian magazines and this month, it’s Elle India’s turn. However, what is supposed to be a playful cover just seems a bit asinine (pun intended) to me. She’s wearing Chanel from H-to-T but who the hell is looking at the clothes?
