————————–

Sabyasachi’s couture collection was just beautiful and it’s no surprise to see it being snapped up right away for an editorial featuring Aishwarya. Parisian Love Affair is the theme and pooch aside, looking forward to what the rest of the spread will look like.

P.S. That is an LV Fall 2010 bag on her.

  1. Egaddddd! Horrible. Forced. Ugly. She and the yorkie look similar with frizzy fur! Ash looks like a goddess as usual. The styling and costumey clothes not appealing at all. The bag is an obvious brand sponsor shoved in. Terrible! How lovely she looks when not tampered with layers.

    • Disagree. I think Aish is a beautiful on the cover. It is very romantic with a touch of boho. LIKE.
      Agree that the bag is out of place but I guess they gotta do what they gotta do.

    • Absolutely disagree. The photo shoot is classic and a refreshing change. and stop being a prude with ‘exposing’ comment seriously…
      It is aesthetically shot photo-shoot and glad they have changed up Ash a little bit.

  2. Sabyasachi was boring me for a little while there …but this couture collection collection is saying somthing new – Ash looks fabulous on the cover and yes, when promoting a designer why over shadow it with a LV bag????

    Can’t wait to see the rest of the editorial though!

  4. I would have loved it without the headgear and the LV. What is with covers and LV handbags!!! So out of place, atleast its not monogrammed. It should have been either the headgear or the choker.

    Love the dress on the runway, even the topi.

  5. i like the theme….like the ensemble…but not in this pic. not on Aish. She is not wearing it with “edge”
    Wondering how the rest of the spread looks like!

        • In fact they do!!! layers of blacks/grays/whites with self colored or contrasted texture.
          Been there a number of times….never seen such explicit textures/vibrant colors/details even in the local “bazaar”…
          if there was no mention ..I would have never guessed that “Parisian Bohiemian ” was the inspiration behind the line.

          • i agree with reve…no one in Paris dress up like this,their dressing sense is very western not at all bohemian or Persian….and its not even Persian style that is portrayed in the pictures i would have never guessed it either!! apart from all that this spread is inspired a lot from the September 2009 issue of hi blitz.

  6. She looks gorgeous! Absolutely breathtaking!Hi Blitz almost always comes up with beautiful covers…unlike other magazines which lack originality and creativity.

  7. Okay, am sure LV has a contract with all these mags to feature one of their bags/ or a collection on the cover.
    That’s the only explanation to this contrasting eye sore, or even the out of place luggage in Priyanka Chopra’s Filmfare (?) cover.

  8. This is definitely one of my favorite covers in recent times. It’s got an old-world romantic charm to it, and Aishwarya looks very majestic and muse-like. The clothes are interesting, intricate and editorial-worthy, and the overall aesthetic (grumpy pup included) is lovely. On an aside, there seems to be a return to a more classically beautiful aesthetic – with a whimsical twist, of course – in fashion magazines these days; for instance, the “W’ cover with Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling, or the Vogue editorial with Carey Mulligan.

  10. What a beauty! Gorgeousness. Love the way they kept the body real and no photoshop on it.

    PS: What happened to the earlier 3 comments that i spotted earlier.. where someone has mentioned very very beautiful ash and ugly ugly dog..hmmm…

  11. I get the idea…dreamy bohemian girl roaming the streets of Paris(??) But what’s with the pup and that pose! I would have liked a walking or standing pose. Just the business and eccentricity of her outfit contrasting with the gray streets of Paris.

    • i know she totally has my respect for not pandering to the ubiquitious size zero syndrome and flaunting her curves. finally someone real women can look up to.

      • With a face like that who the hell needs a size zero bod?

        Oh and please dont steal the stylist’s credit for giving Aish such a goddamn chic makeover! We all know how Ms. Rai dresses in real life! :P

  13. she looks fab!! love her expression! i think the basic idea of the cover is that she’s roaming the streets of Paris and found a lost puppy!! :P

  14. Her hair looks like my kamwali bai’s back in India 6 years ago…….I don’t like her raised eyebrow pose in every picture……for the clothes itself I somehow like the runway look but on the cover its tooo busy to separate at a glance…….

  15. oops!!! her body looks so unflattery(even after the photoshop)…love the face but i dont like the cover…the look of the dress is ruined because of this pose!!

  16. i dont know why, this is not cover worthy. it looks a bit awkward. maybe because that cute pooch doesnt want anything to do with ash. i can tell she’s not a dog person. i prefer the top half, but i believe she’s sucking in her cheeks.

  18. why did they pose her like that? looks like she is sitting in a bloody zebra crossing.

    the clothes are, sorry to say, hideous. the red fabric looks like a sofa threw up on a purple kameez.

    are those velvet roses in her hair? oh dear.

  19. The best cover of ash to come out in recent times…Stunning !!…Kangana’s look(whatever that is) cannot hold a candle to this one. .

  20. the dog looks upset and the look in her eyes is very cold, but must say she looked really nice in robot dance sequences with crazy costumes!

  21. Ash looks breathtakingly beautiful. Very real and earthy. For me, even though I am a fan of Sabya, his clothes are more editorial and shine better in pictures. Coming back to Ash, she looks heavenly.

  22. This is the best ever editorial of ASH!! Once again just simply WOW!! She has such raw expressions in every single pic..here is one editorial where clothes/accessories are not the focal point..its all come together..that’s how fashion should be..it should become part of your own personality!!

  23. the cover pic looked different & nice, but for the other pics – i felt they kind of looked cheap with the unnecessary exposing…

      • I agree with Adara. You don’t always have to cover up every inch of your skin to be classy. This kind of exposing is hardly voyuerisitic or cheap, its more sensual and and eclectic and it goes fabulously with the bohemian/ parisian vibe of the shoot.
        Besides the conservative, classy vibe is not the only route to go- there’s whimsical, risque and downright outrageous, all of which can work if the star has the right attitude and body language (and the audience isn’t too close-minded). At the end of the day, she *is*a drop-dead gorgeous movie star, not a grandmother!! There’s no reason why she should go for covered up looks all the time!!

        • thats truly well said!
          i wish some ppl wud stop getting their sleeves all rolled up at any given opportunity.., and just take it easy!!
          if completely covering up is wat one’s luking for, i think sabya does a bedding and upholstery range and if someones blogging about them, and if the featured cot that gets draped by it has a name, those who wish can go worship and drool over it at the same time for being ‘modest and sophisticated’ :P LOL

  24. i have to admit that being an ash fan since God knows how long, I have found myself effortfully liking a few of Ash’s looks off late..
    but this spread has jus made me fall in luv! She looks phenomenal.. Ash apart, THIS is what good styling and creativity looks like!

    • Well, it is an editorial. The whole point of a fashion editorial is that looks featured don’t have to be practical or play be any ‘rules’. The bra doesn’t look cheap or in-your-face, it just adds another quiet, dreamy layer to the bohemia they have going, dontcha think?

  25. I adore this cover, its so non-generic, and I love that it subscribes to a very global kind of bohemian-ness but still doesn’t lose its ethnic/ Indian identity. When will Indian designers/ stylists learn that they have a potential fashion gold mine on their hands? Fusing traditional Indian fabrics/ embroidery/ drapes with elements of the global catwalks that are ‘in’ right now is such a fast way to stand out. (Like Sabya and this spread proves)

  26. The look kind of reminds me of Vidya’s in Paa (which makes sense as Sabya styled that too) THe LV kind of detracts from the clothes. But she looks stunning and love that she played with her hair a little.

  27. In the 2nd picture she seems to be stirring some coffee. Its a wierd pose. As if she is squeezing her chest with her arms to create a cleavage.
    It reminds me a lot of Rani’s shoot in a bra and skirt. That was also Sabya’s clothes. So he probably likes seeing bras in magazines.

  28. She is absolutely beautiful!! Stunning pics, love the styling, make-up, everything! The pic where she is sitting at the coffee table is to die for!!

  29. mmmmmmmm brining a little bohemia to Paris. However, this editorial is not captivating as I thought it would be – she looks sincere but bored….perhaps it is time to leave the modelling to the younger generation eh?

    The world is just too saturated with Ms. Rai.. ..

    • That’s rather ageist. You might think the spread is boring or that she can’t pull it off, of course, but saying that modelling should be left to the “younger generation” is hardly constructive or open-minded. Cindy Crawford is rocking Vogue India’s cover, Helen Mirren still photographs like a dream, and Julianne Moore’s provocative Bulgari spread is ubiquitous. One might argue about the aesthetic success of a certain editorial or shoot, but age has nothing to do with it.

  30. its a fantastic spread…. very well styled and very well captured.
    Ash looks beautiful but she is never edgy enough (as much i would like her to be)..its more like clothes are wearing her.
    trying hard to think who would have rocked this editorial.

  31. Lovely boho collection yes, but isn’t Ash looking a tad too tired, and a lot fat in this? Even in Endhiran/Robot, she looks a bit old, a lot old actually. Aging is a great process but she doesn’t seem to be aging gracefully. And she is considered one of the most beautiful women.
    A bit disappointing, no?
