    Major love. She, looks, ETHEREAL.

    First things first, why haven’t you used a clear pic of the cover. The cover and Aishwarya look ethereal. STUNNING is the word. 20 years in showbiz, 100s of covers yet every cover of Aishwarya offers something new. The aura of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is unbeatable. More power to her!!

    I don’t like the way her face is white washed. Love the red lips. I wish that she was standing because the outfit looks like a gown rather than a lehenga when she’s sitting down. I do like her expressions but am not blown away by the cover which I would expect to be considering it’s a collaboration between Sabyasachi and Aishwarya.

      Sometimes we tend to forget that this is a cover. The idea is to sell a cover and a magazine. If the outfit is shown off, so be it. If not, that is the way things are.

      The idea behind a magazine cover is not to ‘show-off an outfit’. The designer and the fashion show would do that.

    I didn’t like his latest designs. But here Aishwarya is totally making it work.
    She looks beautiful and I like the cover. Credit goes to Aishwarya.
    Except I didn’t like that fur thing on her shoulder. I don’t like using fur.
    If it is a faux fur then it’s fine.

      To tell frankly, I didn’t look past that beautiful face.
      Infact I want Kajol, Preity Zinta, Aishwarya Rai, Karishma Kapoor, Juhi Chawla,
      Madhuri Dixit, Shilpa Shetty, Sonali Bendre, Dia Mirza, Bipasha, Sushmita Sen
      and Lara Dutta to come back and still be the leading ladies of Bollywood. I don’t
      mind if they are 35 or 45 years, I can still accept them all as heroines of Bollywood.
      Without them all there is a void in Bollywood movies. They were all beautiful, graceful
      and mixture of acting and dancing talents. Without you all there is a void in Bollywood.

    So, did she see a ghost or is she the ghost ?!

    Coming to clothes & styling…it’s very similar to her ‘Guzarish’ styling…altho’ that was mostly black. Looks very elegant!

    August is Ash’s month! she looks so royal. Did you guys check out the Hello cover also? who bags two covers in a month!!! only Aishwarya!! P&P pls post her Hello Magazine cover too. its a request!!!

    1. slc at | | Reply

      +1… and notice how different, the size and shape of her face, body, skin tone has changed from one magazine to the other. No, I am not an Ash hater just irritated because this gorgeous woman needs no enhancing at all.

  12. from-chitown at | | Reply

    Yes she looks very beautiful on the cover – but why is she white washed? I cannot look past that.

  13. Sup at | | Reply

    She looks beautiful, but there’s nothing new about that..
    Can’t help but feel she doesn’t add anything here..
    Agree about the white-wash… aren’t these magazines insulting our actors by doing so?

    Beautiful… In this pic, her face resembles Madonna somehow…

    Ashwarya is a stunner. She was a model before she became an actor and a celebrity. Her ease in front of a camera comes through in the cover picture. Her face is unnecessarily whitewashed though.
    Unfortunately most of Ash’s enchanting appearances are reserved for magazine covers and for Cannes. If only she’d up her game a bit ever so often.

  16. Charan at | | Reply

    She looks good, nothing new about that. But, the cover is just meh.
    The location does not gel with the clothing. And that shrug doesn’t add anything to an already heavy clothing.

  17. Amit at | | Reply

    So happy that you did not comment on her. We all know how painful it is for you guys to say nice things about Ash. Now onwards please follow this strategy – just publish the picture and let the readers comment that way you will know that most of the people likes her. Wonder what makes you two so insecure to say nice things about her. And I am guessing you will not allow my post to appear.

    1. Tania at | | Reply

      Totally agreed !
      I wonder what their beef is with Ash. Whenever she does a faux pas, they are all over her like white on rice but when she manages to hit it out of the park, a lukewarm compliment is given.
      Anyways, they might have their biases but I don’t.
      Ash is rocking this cover. Love everything about it but I so wish they hadn’t white washed her face. She is the last person who needs that to stand out.

    Aishwarya looks fantastic. I do have a problem with the ‘white wash face’ though. It’s Aiswharya on the cover and with that face any magazine will sell well, even if she had rags on.

  21. Anita at | | Reply

    Ash is back!

    No one like her. No one has her elegance. Old world charm

    She looks like she has been drowned. I dont understand the “beauty” of having a dead person be on the cover of a fashion magazine… but then I dont understand “fashion” in general

    She is naturally beautiful I dont understand the need for a tube of lipstick and all the other computer aided “corrections” on the photo. Such things are required for mere mortals like me, not her. There is nothing to appreciate about the dead bird clothing or the dead person aka Aishwarya’s face. Sorry!! :-(

    There are debates in India about “Self esteem” for the girl child and here we have Aishwarya Rai so white washed with tubes of lipstick and “corrections” to achieve “perfection”
    so she can look like a dead person.

    I bet its going to make the 700 million females in India walk “tall :P head held up high

      GOD! It is the concept of the shoot the geish-ish look, witewashed face is the to the look.

      1. Rupa at | | Reply

        Thanks Mana! I don’t know why people don’t understand that just like some styling requires tanning or darker skin certain looks demand paler make-up. Here the white – washing comments seem so uncalled for.

        Haha, yawn that is the best reaction for comments which run miles long.

  23. SS at | | Reply

    Honestly, most of the commentators above are so bias. This is a totally lack lustre cover and the white washing (borderline gost like face) makes things even worst. You could have put anyone else on the cover and it would look the same. Total fail.

    dont like the siberian styling

  25. Harry at | | Reply

    hot! Royalty! That outfit wouldn’t have worked on everyone else but on Aishwarya it does! She is bringing personality to the outfit. Not the other way round. And this time I don’t mind the so called “white washed” look either because I think it’s part of the whole look n feel of the cover. A different vibe.

    guys will you pls upload her hello mag cover??? you have update posts that came later but conveniently ignored the Hello cover!

    1. Amit at | | Reply

      Come on man. Have some heart. They will not upload her hello cover. One stunning pic of Ash followed by another? P&P will have a heart attack or may be they still trying to find fault in that cover.

    just love ASH… such a natural beauty.. love the outfit.. sabya :)

  30. niti at | | Reply

    She looks lovely .. But if I look at Ashs old pics, looks like her complexion has changed from Dusky to white.. Not a fan of what the magazine or make up artist is trying to indirectly promote..

  31. Tanvi at | | Reply

    Love her. Beauty Queen !! I am totally ok with the white wash. Because if you observe carefully the white washing is not done to lighten her complexion..it is part of the makeup design. It’s different from the regular editorial looks..very innovative idea and brilliant execution! Deserves a thumbs up!!

    P&P are you still waiting to find a fault in the Hello Mag cover? really dissapointed with you guys for not uploading it!

  33. palak at | | Reply

    I totally second with how you all ignored Ash’s Hello mag cover! Girls you only grow by admiring what is worth being admired. Piggy chops cover was released today, much before Ash’s!

    PS: i am not an Aishwarya fan but I will give credit where it is due and acknowledge the amazing cover

    1. Priyanka at | | Reply

      Hey Paul/Palak! You are confusing this blog with a fan site. There are many covers with many stars we don’t get around to posting until much later or sometimes, posting at all. And no, we don’t have an agenda. We may or may not post the cover at our discretion. Thank-you for taking the time to follow-up though!

      1. Amit at | | Reply

        The way you follow and upload each and every appearance of a certain Ms Kapoor your site does looks like a fan site.

        1. Sapphire at | | Reply

          To give you some more points…
          Also Ms. Kapoor’s overdressed hotel room/bedroom instagram pics are to be forcibly made to see by us. And her not so visible movie shooting pics, movie trailer bits etc are made like some interesting spottings here.

        PnP I am sorry for all the negativity this generates for you!

        Somehow everyone fails to see that your question on this post was: “Love or Like”? You cover most of Aishwarya’s appearance and do not stop gushing about her Cannes outings. And yet the fans (and I am the biggest ARB fan) tend to target you.

        I am sorry!

    would really like to see the un-photo shopped version of this.

  36. Adara at | | Reply

    Yes, her face and in fact everything is white washed, it seems like the cover is dark & woods themed- in lines with the Snow White and the Huntsman. She looks fantastic. The gown or whatever it is looks drab on the runway and fabulous on her.

    1. Sapphire at | | Reply

      Well said Adara! Agree with everything you said. That is what the theme of the cover is and they achieved what they wanted to show. Not only her face, everything including her outfit and background is whitewashed.
