Update: Ms. Padukone is wearing the dress and not the jumpsuit. Thanks ‘RK’ and ‘belle deese’.

The November edition of Verve serves up Ms. Padukone wearing a Monisha Jaisingh sequin jumpsuit fresh off the Couture Week runway. While I am not a fan of the design of the jumpsuit (the v-neck), angelic is what came to mind when I saw Deepika on the cover. Your thoughts on the cover?

  1. lurve her make up!!! the top part of the outfit looks good ..but seeing the whole outfit reminds me of the disco days….too much sequins…

      • hmm, this is just my personal opinion but I think that this is fashion as art, not as clothing. It’s avant garde and creatively flamboyant, the focus is not on wearability.
        Couture does not have to be practical, ever.

        But that apart, even as a piece of artisitic couture, this does not really appeal to me.

        I like the bold sihoutte in the fiesty shade of gold, but not the sequin overdose. More dramatic make-up, a better defined waist, fiercer heels and hair-do and a lot less shimmer and I’d have loved it.

  2. Possible one of Deepika’s best magazine covers! love it. I hate to spoil it but i only wish she didn’t squeeze against her boob for the ‘lift’ effect. Would’ve been really ‘angelic’ then!

  3. She looks pretty and all (she can’t help it her features are so amazing) but it’s only angelic because they’ve made the picture all soft and glowy (diffuse glow on photoshop anyone lol?). I mean.. that’s not her skin colour and not her real look.. it’s ALL lighting for this shot.

    • oh please, deepika is an average south indian girl. nothing special here – she’s no waheeda rehman. the beauty of this shoot can only result of the styling and lighting.

      deepika is SOOOOOOO overrated.

      afn boob squeeze: WTF? let it go, bollywood women, WE KNOW YOU HAVE BOOBS. can we move on now?

  4. OMG!!!!
    I am never nice to Miss Padukone caz i think shez just BLAH!
    but helooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
    LOVEEEE HER HERE!!!! love the cover!!!!!!! love the hair!
    and lovvvvvveeeeee (i mean loooooeeeeewwwweeeee) the make up!!!
    Verve needs to style her for every event! Kudos!

  5. I love it! The lighting, the concept, Deepika, Everything. Although, I do agree that the cleavage show could have been a little more subtle, only because it jars with the whole pristine purity thing going on.

    Verve consistently delivers with with fabulous covers and innovative fashion editorial unlike SOME other fashion magzines. *cough* the Indian Vogue *cough cough*

    • PnP, I just bought the magazine and she’s NOT wearing the jumpsuit.

      She’s wearing a dull gold sequinned and black beaded dress by Monica Jaisingh from the same collection, and it photographs quite well.

      Also, could you feature Suzanne’s spread in Harper’s Bazaar?
      It’s heavily photoshopped but superbly conceptualized. The cover is quite unimpressive, but the spread more than makes up for it.
