    All the ladies look ravishing in their respective dresses! And I love Ranveer’s burgundy suit as well.

    Awww !! look at Mrs Sudha Murthy ..
    How adorable is her smile!

      +1 She is also my best dressed in this cover. Alia is dressed way older for her age in my opinion. Love Kangana here.

      Yeah, she looks so cute with that smile on her face. Truly a woman who is empowered as well as empowering.

        Mrs.Murthy sure does stand out in the crowd with her simplicity and child like smile..

    The most ridiculous cover I’ve seen… Saw it and wanted to throw up… Are these the only Empowered people they could find in the whole country? NINE from the film industry and only THREE from without?

      Welll…it’s Vogue, not Time magazine. What did you expect?

      1. Éclat at | | Reply

        If they aren’t Time magazine, and only need to be concerned with fashion, why come up with a theme like “empowerment” in the first place?

      Until your comment…. no one would have pointed that…. but its a fashion cover not like forbes… so i guess they keep it to their world of glam. oh also, these are the celebs supporting the cause not ’empowered’

      I agree completely! What about men and women in sports… politics… Women reaching the pinnacle of success in the corporate world… Women like Naina Lal Kidwai… Chanda Kochar… Shubalakshmi Panse!! But no.. they had to have the current crop of movie stars on the front cover! Talk about women empowerment when all Vogue India cared about was putting gorgeous looking people from the entertainment world on it’s covers!

        True. Plus, if they only wanted good looking folks on the cover, why not feature Mary Kom, Sania Mirza or Deepika Pallikal too?
        As it is, until I see the issue myself, I will continue to be confused as to what exactly they mean by “empowerment”. The cover isn’t exactly clear on that point.

      I agree. I have a couple of bones to pick with this cover. One is the Bollywash of the spread. As if Bollywood stars are all they can find to represent empowered India. And if it had to be from the cinema world, then why not widen the search? Never mind the fact that elsewhere in the world Indian cinema = Bollywood, why must these so called Indian publications sing the same tune? Have they not heard of cinema from Tamil, Telugu, Kannada or Malayalam industries? Yeah, but this second one is a minor gripe compared to the first more pertinent point eclat makes. At least that ubiquitous beardie Amitabh Bachchan and that stuttering hamster SRK are not there.

        Agree with what you said. But a small correction, there is representation from Tamil cinemas – A R Rahman. Just in the past decade he has been doing sole Bollywood movies too along with Tamil ones. Earlier they just dubbed his Tamil songs into Hindi ones.

    Seriously I want to know if Deepika has signed a contract with Anaita, as her personal stylist, to get her on Vogue’s cover atleast twice a year. So sick of her.
    I know it’s for an initiative and all, but they could’ve put Alia on the cover with Kangana.
    Coming back to the cover, Kangana looks ravishing and Alia is sizzling.

      Aww!! Too sad your favorite star isn’t a vogue favourite.

  11. Swati at | | Reply

    Alia’s face has been bronzed/photoshopped beyond belief. Apparently, Barkha Datt wasn’t “painted with the same brush” :P

  12. anonymus at | | Reply

    Vogue Empower cover reminds me of Rahul Gandhi’s Interview with Arnab Goswami where he only and only talks about women empowerment..

  13. Alisha at | | Reply

    Deepika looks statuesque

  14. Anamika at | | Reply

    I am really curious if they all came for the photo shoot together or individual pictures got superimposed?

  15. Candy at | | Reply

    With the colour red theme running through, it looks more like a cover for Stardust. Froze when I was Barkha Dutt, I don’t have to question her credibility, I know she lost it years ago. It’s a shame those are the only ’empowered’ people they could find. Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt..my God, so cliche. Vogue India has been going down the crapper, now we know it deserves to stay in the bin.

    I wonder if you’ll publish my comment.

    How is Ranbir Kapoor empowered? Someone please explain me…There got be some intellects at Vogue

    Alia & Ranveer are empowered ?!!! How?

  18. slc at | | Reply

    Everyone looks their best…..even A.R. Rahman …love!

    It just looks like a hodgepodge of people. Almost as if the people at Vogue just pulled Bollywood names out of a hat and added the “non-celebrity” ones as an afterthought.

  20. Fashion bubble at | | Reply

    They are just interested in selling copies and that can only happen with famous airbrushed faces……. Do you really suppose Vogue is interested in real intellectual people who’ve made any substantial contribution to society.

    A stunning red Mysore silk sari, a sweet smile and a face that reflects character and an inner core of steel. Amidst all the wannabes in their designer outfits, Sudha Murthy stands alone with her individuality and beauty. She doesn’t just take the cake, she takes the whole damn bakery!

  22. sahana at | | Reply

    best of all is Sudha murthy and AR rehaman , Aamir and ranveer such a hunk
    and seriously Alia Belongs here ? and she has been photoshopped to extent not to recognize

  23. éclat at | | Reply

    Not that I want to continue the debate, but the-now famous picture of the women of ISRO, sarees flowers et al, celebrating the Mars mission just says.it.all. Sudha Murty and you ladies, salute for being truly “worth it”, and in your own eyes, too!

    1. Popsy at | | Reply

      Gave me mixed feelings. There was no representation of the younger generation of women in the pictures..Unlike the ‘all male’ picture. What happened to the women? 2 b z typ in lk dis ?

    aside from the above comments I am completely on board with, there is some serious eye candy here! Ranbir, ranveer where have you been?
