(Un)Covered

Are Magazines The New E-zines?

17

You may have noticed that we haven’t done an (Un)Covered post in quite a while. There’s a reason for it. Between seeing covers with the same faces every few months and alternate issues about love your body as is vs here’s what you can do to get the best body of your life, we just lost all our enthusiasm.

But, this month, Deepika’s Femina cover caught my attention. And nope, it wasn’t because of Deepika who looks phenomenal but more so, everything else. Like the hashtag, the sponsor brand logo, the social media handles.

I also did wonder what the purpose of that jacket was. Oh yes, to match the color scheme. (It also reminds me of Lucinda Chamber’s interview here).

We are in a digital era and competition is high. Magazines are not only competing with other magazines but also with websites like us. As owners of digital entertainment publication ourselves, we understand how hard it is to survive in this day and age. But I cannot help but admit that when a magazine cover looks like the homepage of a digital site, I do feel a bit sad.

Should magazines allow banner/advertising spots on their covers like a website’s homepage? Tell us!

In Diva’ni

It was a Diva’ni sari for Vidya while at a recent event in Mumbai. Wearing her hair to the side, the actor finished out the look with Ritika Bhasin and Jet Gems jewelry. Think she fared well?

Aishwarya on Bazaar India:(Un)Covered

21

With Ae Dil Hai Mushkil just out and her birthday also being this month, we are not surprised that one magazine featured Aishwarya on the cover. The actor did look breathtaking on it.

She is wearing Manish Malhotra and jewellery from Birdichand Ghanshyamdas.

PV Sindhu on Grazia:(Un)Covered

15

Last month when a certain magazine chose to feature a Bollywood celeb on the cover but just an interview of PV inside, I remember pointing it out to Priyanka about how I wish they had put Sindhu on the cover itself.

And so, Grazia makes me quite a happy girl this month by featuring the badminton star on theirs. Very inspiring and so love!

P.S. She is wearing Gucci.

Filmfare has been upping the ante on when it comes to men on their covers. After the Sushant one, this gold and black look on Ranveer sure stood out. We quite loved it! You?

He is wearing a Rohit and Rahul suit with a Kenneth Cole shirt. The coat is Lecaonet Hemant and the shoes, Hermès .
