    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! Something is finallllyyy doing justice to Ash after a looong time!
    This might just be my favourite cover of Aishwarya! The make up and hair just make the look perfect!

    I really like the jacket. But there’s something missing in the picture… something. Maybe I will wait till I see the actual magazine.

    I have some MAJOR love for this cover. It’s fantastic when Ash’s angelic looks are vamped up. It’s a fabulous, fabulous shot, and I cannot wait to see the rest of the shoot.

    The concept is great, and it should have worked, but this photo looks like an ad for black Peptobismol.

    Why am I reminded of The Black Swan?

      exactly my reaction!

        Judging by the rest of the comments, I guess you and I are the only one that found the resemblance? :)

        1. rvc at | | Reply

          No, so am I. I’m quite disappointed really – it looks like Vogue is trying to capitalize on the recent hoopla. It’s possible the thought never crossed the stylist’s mind, but they should have been more aware about the obvious comparisons the cover will elicit.
          As for Ash herself, I can’t get over the dramatic airbrushing and obvious photoshopped slimming.
          And now I’ll wait for the fans to jump down my throat. :)

          The Black Swan was the first thing I thought of too… Then I started looking at the rest of the picture…

        black swan, its a movie released in 2010, and natalie portman just won a golden globe for potrayal of dancer nina mayers in it, she has bagged an academy award nomination too.

    i Lovvvvve the cover alot .. it’s v.deffernat from wt usually cover is .. but i think if she has a cut eyes makeup or a little havey makeup eyes will be superb

    Love this cover! I first saw that jacket on Anna Dello Russo and was amazed by it then! LOVE!

    YAWNnnnnnnn!!!!zZZzzzz ZzzzzZzz

    something is missing….the look on that model’s face is so intense and aishwarya has failed to bring up that intensity…the makeup artist has failed to do his job…soft black smoked liner or maybe berry colored eye shades could have helped with that look!! very mediocre!!

    1. A1 at | | Reply

      I agree.. the outfit is good.. the hair is fine.. but this is not the best this picture could have been considering it really had awesome potential!

  17. Rezia at | | Reply

    I love everything about this look–the slightly unkempt hair, the ethereal skin, the barely there makeup, and that JACKET!! I truly hate to channel Racheal Zoe but….I DIE!

    Love the jacket on Ash but I think Anna Della Russo rocks it better.

    reminds me why Aishwarya Rai became THE Aishwarya Rai all those yers ago

  23. Anu at | | Reply

    Her eye makeup makes her look tired and droopy eyed. Sorry, but the outfit works for me, the face doesnt.

    1. Apple at | | Reply

      The dramatic eye make up is what makes it edgy creating curiosity in the viewers mind of what saga lies behind those intense eyes. This picture is Work of Art!

      1. precious at | | Reply

        agree with Apple. the photoshopping is bad but neck up..its mindblowing!

    I love it. Aish looks so much better in magazines and movies than IRL. :/

    the clothes are nice but Ash look sick like she got flu?

  27. ariel001 at | | Reply

    I really wish Aish would dress more edgier than those ugly MM designs she wears. This cover is absolutely fabulous. Though I think the stylist copied the way Anna Delle Russo wore it (hair, makeup) as she looks fabulous wearing this jacket too. Her necklace and earrings are beautiful too. I need to find a close up. But Aish wears this jacket really well on the cover. Can’t wait to see the shoot!

      LMAO – get real. What magazine photoshoot is not airbrushed?

      P&P, some of the comments on this site are becoming sillier day by day and usually have nothing to do with fashion.

      I like the edgier cover from Vogue and without heavy makeup to make it OTT.

      1. precious at | | Reply

        i second that, carol.

    My 6 year old just saw the cover and said, that looks like dead people pictures. Enough said!

    1. Sal (SS) at | | Reply

      Why would what a six-year-old say elicit an “enough said”? My six-year-old cousin thinks Barbie is the ultimate fashion icon, which doesn’t mean those are the last words on that subject. :)

    Am i the only one who thinks this look makes her look like the TWILIGHT GIRL?? (Kristin Stewart)

    1. RK at | | Reply

      Second that. Dark, moody, and fragile. And i would disagree with the comments on photoshopping. May be the waist has been a little tweaked, but at least her face remains her own. And she totally rocks the cover.
      P.S: I AM NOT A FAN.

  31. Shree at | | Reply

    Loving the photo! Payal – I think you have failed to understand that Aishwarya has a huge fan base around the world. Surely Vogue will have Aishwarya on cover of their magazine every year – Aish is an internationl star and she sells magazines!. I for one will be buying Vogue February issue.

  32. Adara at | | Reply

    She rocks the sh*t out of that jacket. Easily my fav cover shoot of Aish.

  33. aparna at | | Reply

    Looks like many people r liking this cover page but not me.
    Dont like the makeup & that posing for that dress.
    She also looks sick, and dont like placement of her hands on her waist.
    Would have liked funny or cheery expressions with that dress and that hair should have been tied back inorder to showcase the feathers.

    1. nikki at | | Reply

      I agree- she looks sick in this picture. The shadow under the eyes isnt working in my opinion. I do like smokey eyes, but I feel like the shade they have used isnt bringing forth the right effect

  34. DJ at | | Reply

    agreed, the eyes could have been smokier (was that a right term? anyway…) or the make-up could have been darker but i think the stylist wanna go the “you think im innocent and ethereal but there’s still a dark side to me” look. if they’re going for that, the make-up and expression works for me.

    the jacket, 1st time i’ve seen it and its gorgeous! really goes well with the fallen angel effect.

    Ash has bee wearing heavy makeup (and heavier eye makeup) in all the events recently and im glad they went easy with her makeup here. really brings out her natural beauty. and don’t say its ALL because of airbrush. heck, all celebrity photoshoots are airbrushed nowadays so deal with it.

    and i think that’s her real figure. she actually has a good shape (voluptuous even) but we don’t get to see it coz she’s always wrapped up in those heavy-duty anarkalis. lol.

    generally, i love the cover! :) the headings around it could have been better though.

    1. Rushil at | | Reply

      totally agree! heavier eye makeup was what was required!

  35. Lalitha at | | Reply

    in a word: superb

    Fallen angel..

  37. Rushil at | | Reply

    the entire look is fabulous!!!!love d whole concept!!!
    but her eyes look terribly ill……..when they could have looked totally glam n sexy with more make up!! u know….kind of a dramatic effect!

  38. kumar at | | Reply

    I just cannot see aish as a high fashion material but i gotta give this one for her. much better than her last daboo shoot. n love the eyes. btw, actually prefer your first scan. its got that vintage feel.

    another computer-generated aishwarya …far from her real self when we think about latest event photos she is neither so slim nor so white

  42. ann at | | Reply

    huge fan base around the world? it s only indians who follow aishwarya perhaps some more asians as well. in other countries who follow her mostly indians so we cant say she is international she is not known most of the countries in middle east,turkey,russia,europe,even usa…and many many others …

    1. Fashionmeal at | | Reply

      That’s where you’re wrong.
      The endorsements have made her rather famous. Not to mention her appearance on Oprah (twice) Tyra Banks show and a few others like Letterman, I think. She’s widely popular is the US amongst some of my non Indian friends there as well as Canada and some parts of Europe as well. She’s also a regular at Cannes and has an ad with Kate Winslet which has been aired the world over. People know who she is, and they like her. I’m not saying everyone does, or even half as much as say Eva Longoria or whatever, but her beauty is appreciated world over.

      On another note.
      She looks great! :D

    regarding ash- get over it; the photo is airbrushed neck up and down

    holy wow she looks beautiful. she really makes the unique jacket sparkle and wears IT, as oppose to some clothes that consume/overshadow the girl. great cover!

    wow ! love this cover.aishwarya is looking so beautiful. this is one of the best vogue cover till date.

    me too loved this cover.she is truly a beautiful and classy woman.

  48. bongbabe at | | Reply

    i’ve seen aishwariya wear this same “arrowhead” shaped ring on another cover. or was it a print ad. anyways, it seems she really likes this ring.

    i LOVE the jacket. great stuff.

    as for the photoshopping – i wish somebody would photoshop MY photos too! what luxury!

  49. same1b at | | Reply

    why does aishwarya elicit so many photoshopping comments?! its quite uncanny. everyone is photoshopped, but the comments seems almost spiteful in her case.

    and before someone calls me a rabid fan, I dont like her acting at all. but no need to pull her down unnecessarily and be mean about it…she is obviously a great looking woman and this is a great shot…very current

    back to this shoot, her face is obviously hers….and by the way so is the figure…i just saw a video of this shoot on another website and her pics are quite true to life. her face and figure looked like this….people seem to forget that good photography has a lot to do with great light and angles too…its not all photoshop.

    Anway I dont think she looks that skinny (to elicit this many comments on photoshop) here anyway…nothing a great fitting dress can’t hide. I think that is her waist…the one flaw of her figure is her arms but they are covered here!
