    YES! Models! Hot! Awesome.
    I love the model they put in the front, and how she’s such a clear focal point…even though she’s not in an ideal spot, composition-wise. IT’S NOT THAT HARD VOGUE!

      absolutely agree! plus all the white too, on Tinu, is not very pleasing to the eye!

    A few that were a bit more well fed and sported some curves would’ve been a welcome change but it seems like that’s a bit too much to ask for nowadays.

    OMG- you’re totally right. They’ve finally gotten it right. Seriously, after seeing all their celeb covers, I had actually given up hope.
    Now if only there is a way to get this issue of Vogue India in Singapore =(

    Gorgeous cover! I know most women are curvy but who wants to see them on a cover ..and in a swimsuit!
    I think the photographer tried it to make it more appropriate for indian audiences by covering the waists of the models in bikinis and putting the center one in a one-piece.

    witty with “the dawn of dusk” but i wonder if it will translate from print into the real world. there is nothing like gleaming chocolate skin!

    Excpet for Tinu’s awful, straw blonde hair-how wannabe when u want to celebrate dusky skin!!!

    1. hello at | | Reply

      They are celebrating the dusky skin ! They are showin us our skin tones can rock any color hair ! Personally I think she has a great attitude with it – nothing wannabe-ish about blonde hair. Why categorize dusky skin to only go with dark hair – its about breaking barriers and opening up minds !

    I was wondering why the models’ faces were not white washed with light like always until I saw the caption. We sometimes make it sound as if white is our colour and we are trying in vain to include the minority brown-complexioned in India. It’s like an American fashion magazine telling its readers that fake tans are in.

    So I will expect the next Vogue cover to have another fair Indian model. Or the same models, this time white washed.

      ufff…its not neccesary to critise jus everthing..they put a fair model..or as u say white washed it..then its a prob..they say hey dusk is in…then its a prob…so hard to please ppl…

      I don’t think we make it sound like white is ‘our color’..its a well known fact that many many Indians try to become lighter and that fair skin is considered to be more beautiful by many in India, what the cover is doing is simply trying to celebrate our ‘browness’ if I may say so, by saying that we have skin tones the rest of the world pays money to get, so lets celebrate it!

    Fantastic, I am so glad Alex Kuruvilla has taken over, you can see him going to his south Indian roots and giving the darker girls a chance. Also a pleasant change from the actress trying be a model on the cover look. ..

    Finally.. run out of bollywood celebs! There is a huge chunk of Indians who wish to be fair and there is a huge chunk of people in Australia who wish to have tanned skin. Unilever has been selling Fair & Lovely in India but it also sells tanning products in Australia – it is a win win situation for companies that have gone global.

    HAs anyone seen the new Bazaar cover yet????Its SMOKIN HOT!!!

    1. Anony Mous at | | Reply

      Too right babe! Dia is positively SIZZLING on the Harper’s Bazaar cover!!! Though this one isn’t bad either, I have to say…

  16. anita at | | Reply

    LOVE!! Although the bright white one-piece is a bit too white..

    It sounds to me that Vogue is only celebrating what’s in worldwide, but clearly not appreciated in India. This cover should not be an exception, but a rule, given all the celebs and magazines endorsing fairness creams and what not!

    pettyfogger…i agree with you…i am absolutely feeling you on your comment. Its sad! really sad! if its celebs would love to see the sexy Bipasha (without contact lenses) or the elegant and demure Freida Pinto without being white washed on their covers. Why r we struggling so much in just accepting that our country has people of all skin tones – brown and darker shades being the majority!

    Please someone from HHC reach out to Vogue and Elle and every other disillusioned magazine in our country

    Yes! Totally! What a refreshing change to see models on the vogue cover. I was getting tired of all the bollywood actors.
    Tinu verghis’s blonde do is just way out! super hot! I also am absolutely digging the sunkissed/dusk complexion with the stark white contrast. My all time fav combos.
    mmmm. Life can’t get any better than this. :)

    They obviously didn’t get it all right but you have to give it to them for getting a lot right. Now if only they’d ban fairness cream endorsing actresses from their covers!

    Isn’t ashika wearing the same LV bikini as Dia on the harper bazar issue.

    1. Payal(HHC) at | | Reply

      You are quite right! Even we didn’t notice. Ashika is wearing a different color scheme. Looks like we have a real cover war on our hands. :)

      1. Anony Mous at | | Reply

        Hardly a war….Vogue has six models and Bazaar has one star on the cover…some amount of fashion overlapping is allowed I guess.
