September is one of the most important months for fashion magazines because the fashion seasons change, the coolest shows (London, New York, Paris) happen in this month and designers also release their look books. This is, of course, in keeping with the international standards but if Vogue India does not insist on following international diktats, I don’t know who will. So after, what I’m guessing, was a 2-minute discussion during a sutta break on who to pick as their September cover girl they chose…
Gasp! Deepika Padukone.
Deepika might be Bollywood’s reigning queen (a dark, dark day in our lives) but Vogue went really literal when they plonked a crown on her. I won’t be surprised if they sourced it from the queen of England herself. It’s Vogue, I won’t put it past them.
Aside: To get rid of dark circles, as one of the cover lines states, if Vogue is suggesting a good night’s sleep, I’d like to invite them post 10 pm to where I stay. Balam Pichkari has been blaring for the last 10 days. It’s a holi song, Ganpati does not really care about it.
Also if one of the ways to eat and cheat to losing weight is smaller portions, my question to Vogue is just how do you have only one strip of bacon? How!? You have to be dead inside to stop at just one. Dead, I say. DEAD! Damnit! Now I want a double beef burger.
Of course I will be horribly shamed if neither of the two make the list.
In Dolce & Gabbana
This is another version of the same theory. The one about royalty not burgers. Only this one’s more medieval. I love the metallic bustier. It’s so badass, like a warrior princess on her day off. And it’s got a peplum that does not fall flat. It’s like her own personal merry-go-round. Her finger is reaching out to press the ‘on’ button even.
