    The right most is a “Chindi Rug” , made in India , sold at Walmart for less than $10. I have one at home….

    Also, left most model ka 2.5 gram ka haath agar kisi per pad jaye to … Kuch pata bhi nahin chalega…

      Very beautiful faces but I am more inclined to adopt one of these girls and feed them Asli Ghee ke parathe..

          It is actually Bacova back to school chindi multicolored striped rug available for $ 5.99 at Bonton. I use one in the kid’s room… Can’t paste the URl but if you google search the image you should be able to find it pretty quickly…

            just for record.. this aint no “chindi” rug. its actually a dress made with tubes of ribbon… if only we read the finer print (sigh)

            @Cherry blossom – Chindi rugs are also made with tubes of ribbon (which is called chindi in hindi).

      Chindi Rug for $10.. my mum snagged its years ago for a bargain outside CST station. It didn’t last long.

      I am glad that you mentioned that its a chindi rug….but the fact that it has been developed into a dress is what is praise worthy!!!!! What ever happened o creativity!!!!

        I guess you guys havent got yourself a copy of the magazine- the dress is noway like a chindi rug!! In closeup you can see that its made up of tiny bits of silk ribbon embroidered onto the fabric- noway can that compare with a chindi rug!!

          Do they(Elle India) have a circulation in US ? BTW- Chindi rugs are actually made with tiny bits of ribbons (which are called Chindi). The ribbons could come from any material (even silk and leather just google) . Normally they do not have a lining but the idea is exactly the same. I was surprised to see chindi rugs being sold at some high end stores in the USA . I had always thought that chindi was something low class but I am not that shocked with that name anymore.

          I think I am getting carried away with this post but I could not stop laughing when I saw that a designer is using the idea from something that I have been using as rug… [If I had that idea before him I would have wrapped a rug around me and would have gotten the front cover , or if I had seen the apple fall before Newton did …..;-) ]

    I dint like any of them.
    And when i looked at the 3rdlast model ,exactly same thing came to my mind.Her dress is made out of 5$ rug in walmart.
    If it was designed my some loww-scale designer,definitely HCC people would have given same comment.

    I freaking LOVE Elle India. I love their covers, they even make some actresses look so interesting. :D
    And I love the models, the colours(oooooh, the colours), the Rajesh Pratap Singh jacket, and lastly, how striking these women are.

    1. cherry blossom at | | Reply

      errrrmmm….they are not called models for nothing.

  14. Tanster at | | Reply

    The girls on the cover are models! NO ONE would like to see a chubby, bad-figured girl on the cover of a magazine…and you know that! And if you don’t, you are just in denial…
    For for the people who are fashion-challenged, it’s best not to comment on clothes/designers, it’s only fair…

    1. Stuti at | | Reply

      That’s a little too much, isn’t it?
      No, I am not in denial, it’s just that we have been so conditioned to seeing thinner models that we delude ourselves into thinking that chubbier/not so thin models are not “models”. Why not though? Why can’t a normal, regular sized girl be stunning, and be put on a cover?
      Because of conventional norms? Because of some unwritten rules? Who makes the rules?
      I personally disagree with everything you just said.
      And no, that doesn’t mean that I am anti-skinny, or anti-models. I love these models on the cover, and think they are beautiful. But that doesn’t mean that a girl who is a bigger size cannot be.
      It’s high time we drop the whole body Nazi attitude.
      Sorry for the rant, I just feel strongly about this.

        well said stuti

          In my defence I did not say normal, a regular sized girl CANNOT be stunning, and be put on a cover. As long as it is pleasant on the eye, it works…

    All three girls are the faces on the scene, that you have to between a size 2 and 4 to model anywhere in the world is a given, so about feeding them asli ghee is all rubbish. This is their job.

    The girls are fab. Good for Elle and Nonita not to continously put a film fraternity bimbette on the cover.
