Been late in posting this cover (no one to blame here but my epic ability to procrastinate), but better late than never methinks.

It was return of the supermodel(s) as Laxmi Rana, Vidisha Pavate, Sheetal Mallar and Diandra Soares teamed up for Marie Claire’s cover, a 4th Anniversary issue.

More images from the cover story inside. What do y’all think of the spread?

  1. the dusky bombshells!! they look smokin’ hot!
    THOUGH not much credit to the photographer for rather uninspired shots.

    • Totally agree, the model look great, but the cover and the pics themselves are so boring! we’ve seen the group shots where each woman has her body at a different angle wearing the same stern looking on her face.
      something different please!

  2. Have never been a fan of Diandra and her boldness… The pose is odd and accentuates her large waist. Lakshmi’s jacket is also a little strange… Vidisha looks a little swollen.

    Apart from Sheetal i really don’t think the other girls are SUPERMODELS. the term is used so loosely all over the world. Mehr, Madhu, Sheetal and Ujwala are the ONLY Indian Supermodels. Lakshmi Menon is still rocking!

    The cover is a little inspired by the Vogue swimwear cover.

      • SERIOUSLY LARGE WAIST??? What have we human beings come to. Our sizes of models and women have become so warped and unbelievably UNHEALTHY.
        If Vidisha and Diandra are swollen and large-waisted then what the f$%^& are we normal girls who do actually have fat????

        This has got to be one of the craziest comments…

    • @ashish, Vidisha, just had a baby…so about lookign swollen give her little break. Diandra has a broad waist, not LARGE waist. Agree with you on the super models,but they are also the top models of the country, top 20 infact. Quite a feat for a population of a BILLION +. Laxmi Menon is only 28, a good 10 years younger than Sheetal…..we will see where she is in 10 years right…I love her by the way.

    • I agree, no hard feelings to the girls …. in no means I would consider Diandra a supermodel … she is not well know at all.

  3. I though the cover and shoot was quite a let down. Even though it is styled to look rustic and vintage, it looks plain and old Wish they had used these beauties better!

  4. agree – this shoot looks very uninspired almost morose- but what bods! how hot does diandra look with no tresses – and lurve that burberry skirt on laxmi. now only if there was some edginess to the shoot!

  5. OH my… what an epic waste of beauty and fierceness. Such stunning ladies, and this is all the photographer could come up with? Shame…

  6. this is why models are models and actors are not (and should not model on covers or on the runway)! these women are stunning, despite the ok clothes and uninspired shots.

  7. I dont find bald women hot.plus this photoshot is so boring and plain.
    If this make,hair and dress the girls would have been wearing in real, then everyone would have criticized their 70’s hair and bleh-dresses.

  8. I agree, bald is boring! I do not understand the attraction for Diandra as a model. Most of the models are so ordinary –if you put that face on a normal woman’s body, no one will give them a second look. The only thing going for them is the height and better than average physique.
    Only vidisha’s last pic is fluid and a good shot.

  9. love it, all are freinds. and all over 30. and surprise surprise two are from the south, and one half south Indian….GO GIRLS…

  10. The shoot seems like such a bore. The cover has no personality, and models look lifeless. And it looks like an exact replica of Vogue India’s April Issue – Dawn of the Dusk. Possibly the same theme was copied. Overall, it doesn’t impress me at all.

  11. I think the photographer was going for a Prabuddha Dasgupta-esque feel (you simply have to check out his editorial “In the Mood For Love”), but it doesn’t really work. The models are stunning and they deserve better than this lame photoshoot.

  12. I was missing Vidhsha and Sheetal it’s nice to see them again gracn d cover of a mag though i feel soory bout the styling of this shool.
