Alia On Elle India: (Un)Covered

Comment image 20

Elle gave us a very striking cover this month… The all-mint, rather minimalist cover with Alia in retro-inspired garb has a rather arresting quality about it.

That said though, the starkness of the cover does highlight even the barest of imperfections. Not that it’s a deal-breaker. In an age where even the slightest imperfection is smoothed away, the folds on Alia’s pants are something we can live with. (And it only stood out in the first place because of the smooth composition of the cover!)

P.S. Alia is wearing Turquoise and Gold top and trousers, a Louis Vuitton scarf as a headwrap and jewellery from Isharya.

  1. I strongly disagree with you on the issue of imperfections on covers. Why the need to make it plastic. The folds are a welcome change and make it real. i wish more magazines adopt a realist approach to covers.

  2. Love the concept, execution not so much. They could have swapped the uncomfortable looking tights with easy breezy palazzos, and neatly pulled up all the hair if they wanted to go for the turban look. Those unkempt strands look clumsy. If they wanted to go with the tights then the pose should have been different! Liking her face though.
