In Payal Khandwala

At a press meet in Mumbai, Gautami was seen wearing Payal Khandwala separates. Between the necklace and the brogues, I wish Gautami had picked one or the other. Just because the brogues feel offbeat but the necklace feels to traditional.

Either ways, it was nice to have a sighting of her. It’s been a while!

Major debate had ensued over the Vogue India August cover (if the cover was vogue-worthy or not)… On special request, here is the inside flap of the cover… so tell us now, is the cover after all ‘vogue-worthy’ or, not?

L To R: Gauri Pradhan, Tina Parakh, Resshmi Ghosh, Gautami Kapoor

Since you all asked, here’s what we think:

Priyanka Says:
For me, the cover just doesn’t work. I do appreciate using these ladies on the cover but if the context was portraying them as the ‘influencers’ of style then they should have been portrayed in beautiful Indian clothes. Lets assume that maybe they thought by doing so, they’d be taking the stereotyped ‘tv-bahu’ image too far then they should have gone way over the top with ethnic clothes and done a kitschy-witty play on them with a larger than life set. Assuming, even that got shot down in one of those meetings, it is still beyond me why they’d use television sets as props. Thats just taking a short-cut and being unimaginative. The choice of clothes, accessories and styling of hair is amateur at its best.

Over using these soap actresses, I say why not? Bollywood actresses have long graced fashion mag covers and considering these soaps reach just as many people and almost every day make their presence felt, using them on the cover was a novel idea. If only it was done better.

Anyway, am tired of seeing actresses (of all mediums) on these covers, bring back the models already!

Payal Says:
Well, if Vogue considers them as influencers of style, they should picture them in “character” and not in Dolce/Hermes and Gauri & Nainika which most of them rarely wear anyways and rather use a mix of the other Indian-wear designers…
