    Gold trench is tacky. Nothing wrong with the dress though. Little bit of cleavage is rather sexy. She looks pretty good though.

    Even filmy gossip magazines have better covers…this from a fashion mag is just bad !

    That boobage just eww…

      +1. whats she/her stylist/the mag trying to establish here??

      Plus, it’s terribly photoshopped!

    I love the black and gold colours on her. She looks lovely.

    I rather love it, actually. They played up her retro sex appeal while updating her style, without resorting to gimmicks. She looks fantastic.

      Retro sex appeal? like what Zeenat Aman? Parveen Babi? Vidya Balan is no retro sex goddess!!

    oh dear. such a beautiful lady and THIS is what they could do with her? she looks like an unhappy ghost. probably anticipating the photoshopping that awaited her inevitably.

    cant understand her pose…face looks good

  12. asha at | | Reply

    She doesnt even look like Vidya Balan……there should be a limit to airbrushing

    1. Rue at | | Reply

      I agree! her face is heavily so airbrushed i didn’t even recognise here. If her body was visible in the pic, they would have photoshopped her into a size 0.

  13. Rajvi at | | Reply

    While i agree with you about the outfit..the makeup looks great on her she should try something like this more often

    Vidya looks fab! She owns her full figure and that’s something in today’s age! And to grace Vogue’s cover! But… the gold trench is just tacky.

    so just wondering… and this is completely an honest enquiry i want to make of this website.

    how come not one mention/line/symbol for the rape ‘victim’ – hate that word, but cant think of any other.

    i mean fair enough, this is a fashion website not a newspaper, but payal and priyanka, youre largely addressing women, and it would have been nice to make some show of solidarity. im very disappointed that this website pretends like it is not part of the rest of the society.

      Agreed! Fashion aside, some mention should have been made, especially since this blog reaches a wide audience. Other fashion blogs have gone above and beyond and even started petitions against the criminals.

        Just because “other fashion blogs have gone above and beyond and even started petitions against the criminals” doesn’t mean that HHC should follow suit.

        1. enne at | | Reply

          agree. they should do whatever they want, or nothing. but just making mention of it can only help. Even console a reader or two. makes it worth having a platform and a voice which PnP do have with this space…

        hi Shika, there are a lot of centralised efforts being taken. if you’d like to know more please look up Justice for Women India, on wordpress. they’re comprehensively tracking the efforts at a national level. with peace.

      3. Honey at | | Reply

        I was disappointed, too. I don’t use Twitter and it was strange seeing no mention of it at all on the website.

    2. Malaise at | | Reply

      So, how about as women we change our mindsets right here? All these candle light vigils and ‘mentions’ wont change anything. Maybe Indian women need to f’ing change first.

      Right on this website, how many comments do you see about ‘oooh..yuck..all that boobage’, ‘she needs to cover herself’, ‘always showing her legs’, ‘always showing her body’, ‘oh so tacky’….etc etc etc..How about letting a person wear what she wants, when she wants… her body, her life…instead of bringing the backward ass Indian society mindset to fore.

      1. dontpounceyet at | | Reply

        couldnt agree more. maybe my one grouse against this website too. i mean the whole concept of high fashion for that matter, is so freaking elitist and non inclusive. no matter what pretty language is used in this blog, it has on several occassions downright humiliated women. and all of us commentators are just like the men, sitting from behind our computers, watching the spectacle, waiting to say something smart sounding and horrid about women who seemingly have more power than us.

        1. tiquebou at | | Reply

          anyone who craves attention opens themselves up to getting attention, sometimes ridicule, sometimes praise. there are tons of well-dressed people who don’t stop for photo-ops. this is a place to discuss aesthetics – so if someone’s particular appearance is jarringly ugly to me because their boobs are in my face why pretend it’s not because of that? i’d say covering or uncovering your boobs is a personal aesthetic choice, not a social diktat. some women i know insist on it, they feel unattractive w/out showing off cleavage. my POV is boobs don’t maketh the gal, i’d rather see a sexy smile. different strokes.

      2. Adara at | | Reply

        Not sure of the others , i yucked at it since i don’t want a on your face boobs. I would think of the same even if men were dressed tacky like a la Sonu nigam (lol, i still cant get over those two pig tails he wore for some event). There is something tastefully done and then there is THIS!!!

    Loved her Bazaar Cover more then this one. God the look is safe and boring isn’t fashion supposed to b more exciting and fresh.I lov Vidya in her Sabya looks this is so not her.

  17. Pooja at | | Reply

    It barely looks like her! Too much photoshop.

  19. Food Poisoned Attorney at | | Reply

    I don’t like anything about this cover.

    Whats with the Vogue covers these days? Only they can promote both women celebrating their curves and photo shopping these voluptuous women beyond recognition into food starved Saharan kids.

      “food starved Saharan kids”? Have a heart!

  21. tiquebou at | | Reply

    less said about Vogue India the better. it’s all good but there’s no imagination or effort put in. these beautiful Indian ladies are all air-brushed into looking ‘flawless’ & dressed in the most obvious lack luster choices, beautiful single pieces but just not adding up to much. i am not sure whether they get that curves are more than boobs. but they’re the only thing eye-catching on the cover.

    Y.A.W.N !!!

    “love your curves” and hiding curves underneath the jacket !!!

    She looks fabulous in Saree/in Indian Attire…Why she has given such pose & attire?

  24. bohochic at | | Reply

    I am not against cleavage… but this one is incongrouus and yikes..a bit too much…Does not go with her expression or the theme…Maybe she is still in Dirty Picture mode.
