Shilpa On Grazia India: (Un)Covered

Comment image 37

Shilpa Shetty graces the cover of the May edition of Grazia India in an Azara by Alpana and Neeraj white mini sporting a completely different hairdo than her usual style. Just when you thought Shilpa can’t do covers well, she goes and surprises us. Remember the Cosmo cover? (see here) And, if that wasn’t bad enough, did you see the Hi Living one? That one was so bad, we didn’t even feel like featuring it! :P

On an aside, sure makes for a change to see a desi designer up on one of these covers! We aren’t saying one is good over another, just that it makes for a welcome change.

  1. She should wear her hair like it is on the cover all the time! I don’t like the dress at all, would never wear it..I mean,who would? The bottom in this especially is so unflattering, it’s almost as though these dresses are for show and not actual wear.
    Haha and I love the cover of Living! Love the silver sequinned leg pads and the fact that she’s wearing a Royals shirt with a corset over it! It’s genius! Love this cover, just wish her hair was as it was in Grazia!

  2. IDK… no matter what she does.. what hair / dress/make-up she wears, I never like her..
    But still, the make-up on Grazia cover is nice.

  3. They didn’t have to go that far with the Hi Blitz Living cover… I like the Alpana and Neeraj mini. I think the hair and the makeup goes well with the rather peculiar dress

  4. @ Pri
    yea I agree about the dress on the cover of grazia —some of them can look nice but mostly they are all just really weird shaped (duh) and just plain unflattering.

  5. @ Pri, girl completely agree about the dress on the cover i wouldnt wear it if someone paid me a million bucks! lol well i would wear it for a million but u know what i mean, not a nice dress at allllll

  6. finally! Finally!! FINALLY!!!
    THE HAIR is gone!!! I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting!!! (ok, so some of that glee may come form the fact that I never have to take a math class ever again but..)
    YAY! and SEE!! She looks so much better with the flat do!
    I love the Grazia cover- Grazia covers are usually very dramatic and wonderfully editorial <3
    the Living is meh…I don’t like the corset over the shirt

  7. My dear Pri
    Sometimes pictures are created to inspire and so are clothes. The picture is stunning and Ssilpa looks stunning in it. As far as the shape is concerened its not ment to be wearable its the designer having fun with it and has ended up doing a great job….as far as wearbility is concerned I am sure there are a wide variety of shopping pages in the issue with beautiful earable garments.

  8. i absolutely love the dress iwish i can get it here in the uk infact ilove everything about the grazia cover but not liking her hair on the living one…all in all she looks great as always

  9. She looks different for sure,
    but better?
    I am not sure.
    Don’t like her eye makeup. Should have been blened better maybe?

  10. I guess the first thought that would pop in most people’s mind, on seeing the dress (Grazia), will be, Balenciaga done very badly (and 2 seasons too late!) And I’ll have to agree!!

  11. I liked both the covers. The second one is high on originality, never mind the hairdo! One has to appreciate the lady who’s carefree about her looks and non-fussy, i think its really brave of her to have worn a her teams t-shirt and a corset over it. I checked out the magazine as well, its fabulous.The magazine is Hi! Living and not Hi Blitz Living….you guys made a boo-boo….! never expected that from you.

  12. Oh my god. The other day, my friend was naming who was on his top 5 list for beautiful actresses in Indian cinema and Shilpa was in his list. At that time I was surprised because while I think Shilpa deserves the most credit ever for her maintaining her stunning figure, I never thought of her as top 5 material.. but in this pic (Grazia) she is JUST TOOOO STUNNING! One comment.. I hate the rounded eyebrows she has in the top cover.. I prefer the arched brows she has in the Living cover. I think the cover of Grazia just looks amazing.

  13. Meh! nowt special – she looks how she always looks apart from the hair and even that can’t distract me from the meh-ness of it all.

  14. the top half certainly scores well with me but the bottom half….not really…. I am not a big fan of these tulip dresses.
    The Hi Living cover sure has a good idea, but very very boring look. Same old hairstyle, same pout…….

  15. I swear in every photo shoot I see of her, she has the same look LOL It’s like her face is stuck in that position

    I don’t think the dress on the Grazia cover is cover-worthy at all, nothing pops with the dress. It’s a nice dress and all, and her body is always on point!

    I also like her sequined leg pads! I don’t like how they made her sit on a block, the cover would have been better had she been moving around or something…she looks good though

  16. I don’t think the dress on the cover is for real life use,what with the chicken feathers and stuff, but it does give a bit of drama to the picture. Shilpa looks good, as always. Love her hair here.

  17. She looks fab altho the dress sure isn’t very scoring!! But then again, I agree with you guys, it does make for a refreshing change to see an Indian designer featured on the cover of an int’l mag!! And I’ve got to say, I hated the Cosmo cover featuring Shilpa, more than I dislike the Hi Blitz one!!

  18. i actually really like the dress minus the pocket/wierd hip area. Only someone as skinny as shilpa can pull it off..but i do like the print and the cut of the dress and she looks great in it..also like her eye make up…

  19. love the grazia cover…..all these actresses in my opinion should start experimenting with edgier looks(which also includes the hair and make up) because most of these ladies may wear some ‘edgy’ pieces (to their standards) but the trademark bolly wood hair(read curly wavy long extensions) kill it!!
    this look is by far the best i have seen in a cover, done by another celebrity othar than sonam kapoor (that girl is above ALL) :D

  20. i infact love the grazia dress..its nt wearable but creative..i like the fact that indian designers have started experimenting…good work guys!!…but i somehow dont like shilpa..her body perfection is too fake

  21. Hi Payal,

    This is actually Grazia’s May edition.

    If you look carefully, May 2009 is written just below “Volume 2 Issue 2” on the left hand side.
