Smita, Jyothsna and Rebecca on Elle India: (Un)Covered
If not the featured clothes, the gorgeous models on the cover should whet your appetite enough to get out and snag the latest Big Fashion Issue of Elle India that has models Smita (in Small Shop by Jason Anshu), Jyothsna (in a Rajesh Pratap Singh jacket) and Rebecca (in Varun Sardana) showcasing the best amongst the Indian fashion industry.

I love Elle India *sigh*
they’ve never failed me yet
The right most is a “Chindi Rug” , made in India , sold at Walmart for less than $10. I have one at home….
Also, left most model ka 2.5 gram ka haath agar kisi per pad jaye to … Kuch pata bhi nahin chalega…
[ Comes from a dialog by macho Sunny Deol referring to his 2.5 Kilo hand….]
Very beautiful faces but I am more inclined to adopt one of these girls and feed them Asli Ghee ke parathe..
Haha, you are always funny! :D
LOL @Chindi Rug.
It is actually Bacova back to school chindi multicolored striped rug available for $ 5.99 at Bonton. I use one in the kid’s room… Can’t paste the URl but if you google search the image you should be able to find it pretty quickly…
i have the chindi rug too..in india
just for record.. this aint no “chindi” rug. its actually a dress made with tubes of ribbon… if only we read the finer print (sigh)
@Cherry blossom – Chindi rugs are also made with tubes of ribbon (which is called chindi in hindi).
Chindi Rug for $10.. my mum snagged its years ago for a bargain outside CST station. It didn’t last long.
I am glad that you mentioned that its a chindi rug….but the fact that it has been developed into a dress is what is praise worthy!!!!! What ever happened o creativity!!!!
Mee too .I have that rug LOL!!
I guess you guys havent got yourself a copy of the magazine- the dress is noway like a chindi rug!! In closeup you can see that its made up of tiny bits of silk ribbon embroidered onto the fabric- noway can that compare with a chindi rug!!
Do they(Elle India) have a circulation in US ? BTW- Chindi rugs are actually made with tiny bits of ribbons (which are called Chindi). The ribbons could come from any material (even silk and leather just google) . Normally they do not have a lining but the idea is exactly the same. I was surprised to see chindi rugs being sold at some high end stores in the USA . I had always thought that chindi was something low class but I am not that shocked with that name anymore.
I think I am getting carried away with this post but I could not stop laughing when I saw that a designer is using the idea from something that I have been using as rug… [If I had that idea before him I would have wrapped a rug around me and would have gotten the front cover , or if I had seen the apple fall before Newton did …..;-) ]
This Elle has amazing stuff/shoots inside as well.Go for it. Sooooo nice to see a cover with models, sans Bollywood heroines, love the outfits as well
I lurvvee Varun Sardana’s dress. Has so much attitude. If only I had a body like the model’s :(
aah… fashion rules again ;)
I heart the Varun Sardana dress!!
The cuff-ish accessory…not so much :S
Gorgeous women …and okish cloths …that dress on Rebecca looks interesting …somethng like old fabric mat people get made from old cloths ..:)
I dint like any of them.
And when i looked at the 3rdlast model ,exactly same thing came to my mind.Her dress is made out of 5$ rug in walmart.
If it was designed my some loww-scale designer,definitely HCC people would have given same comment.
I freaking LOVE Elle India. I love their covers, they even make some actresses look so interesting. :D
And I love the models, the colours(oooooh, the colours), the Rajesh Pratap Singh jacket, and lastly, how striking these women are.
Stunning cover, would love to see this kind of cover in Summer, right now, doesn’t seem to be right.
maybe if u live in the cold climes.. for us here in india this cover works just fine…
They look like triplets!!!!!
What a fun cover ! Love the colors ! *So* much better than the rest
oMG..throw them a doughnut!! laddu!! anything!!! super skinny..or is this photoshopped?..love the facial bone structure..
errrrmmm….they are not called models for nothing.
The girls on the cover are models! NO ONE would like to see a chubby, bad-figured girl on the cover of a magazine…and you know that! And if you don’t, you are just in denial…
For for the people who are fashion-challenged, it’s best not to comment on clothes/designers, it’s only fair…
That’s a little too much, isn’t it?
No, I am not in denial, it’s just that we have been so conditioned to seeing thinner models that we delude ourselves into thinking that chubbier/not so thin models are not “models”. Why not though? Why can’t a normal, regular sized girl be stunning, and be put on a cover?
Because of conventional norms? Because of some unwritten rules? Who makes the rules?
I personally disagree with everything you just said.
And no, that doesn’t mean that I am anti-skinny, or anti-models. I love these models on the cover, and think they are beautiful. But that doesn’t mean that a girl who is a bigger size cannot be.
It’s high time we drop the whole body Nazi attitude.
Sorry for the rant, I just feel strongly about this.
well said stuti
In my defence I did not say normal, a regular sized girl CANNOT be stunning, and be put on a cover. As long as it is pleasant on the eye, it works…
All three girls are the faces on the scene, that you have to between a size 2 and 4 to model anywhere in the world is a given, so about feeding them asli ghee is all rubbish. This is their job.
The girls are fab. Good for Elle and Nonita not to continously put a film fraternity bimbette on the cover.
the ribbon dress is UGH… why do they keep promoting his work? its ugly!
and grapes are sour…
varun is sparkling young talent at its best..
D one on the right looks a bit like Blake Lively
Of all the designers in India and their lustful creations , this is wjat we get ? Good lord !!!
Everybody needs to get a chance!
