  1. OH MY GOD.

    She looks so crazy hot! Wowza. Loving the black white palette and the cat eye eyeliner. Welcome back, Ms. Balan (Roy Kapoor?).

  3. Gorgeous!! Love the black and white photography, and it highlights Vidya’s classical beauty so well. It is also so refreshing to see her looking good in western wear.

  4. I prefer the close-ups to the long shot in the b+w gown. dunno, there seems to be disconnect between the face (desi) and the dress (not).

  6. I am speechless and in a good way.. her eye make up is outstanding and although I love Indian wear as much as western I believe with good guidance and a good fashion consultant, she can do wonder. I truly think she’s gorgeous.

  8. Pity pity! She is white washed in the pics. Setting a wrong example with darker skinned girls who are equally beautiful.
    Shame on these people….

  9. She looks good, but they made her too skinny. It’s a (good) photoshop job, but we all know that that’s not her body. Styling is perfect but again, I hate to be negative, but her body isn’t anywhere close to what they have shown.

  10. Wow. Vidya looks really sexy. Kudos to Marie Claire. I am sure the pics have been photo shopped but not to an extreme extent. Vidya’s voluptuous curves are still visible. Love, love, love.

  11. OMG she looks absolutely gorgeous. If only she could hire the stylist and the make up artist for her off shoot appearances. Who actually thought that she could carry off Burberry and Donna Karan? Ditch the Sabyas for once Vidya..

  13. The second photo with teh b and w gown looks amazing. I am sure it is a little photoshopped, but it still is a great look for her. Why can’t she wear something like this in real life? Am waiting for the day when she will blow our socks off with something like this – she sure has the potential to!

  14. THERE comes out her versatility! wish she’d experiment with looks these in her public experiences too. that would make for such pleasant sightings along with her brilliant acting skills.

  15. She looks amazing! Only grouse about the photoshoot itself is that in some of the pics, and there are more on other sites, the angle/proximity of the camera makes her look cross–eyed (and she isn’t, so methinks they should have been more careful about that).

  16. Extreme photoshopping. The one in Nikhil thampi & Gucci, she is half her size of how she is in real life. It’s like they decided to use PC’s body for vidyas white washed face. lol

  17. I’m the stylist for this shoot and want to say thank you all for the overwhelmingly positive comments. We’re thrilled with the results. For the photoshop cynics – here’s the un-photoshopped making of video – tell us what you think! :) it’s honestly minimal. Promise.
