Bollywood September Issue Face-Off

05 Sep

While there is always plenty of coverage for the September issue cover wars in the West, India is slowly catching up to the trend and giving us some exciting covers to gawk at.

This year’s September issues went to Katrina Kaif (Elle), Sonam Kapoor (Harper’s Bazaar) and Nargis Fakhri (Vogue).  Katrina and Sonam both have big movie releases coming up with Mere Brother Ki Dulhan and Mausam respectively. Nargis will be debuting with Ranbir Kapoor in Rockstar, releasing later this year. (In case you missed it, check out our round-up of upcoming Bollywood releases.)

Back to the cover wars. While Nargis looks good in the green Versace dress, she doesn’t have enough Bollywood credentials to merit a place in this face-off. So we’ll discount her until we manage to watch Rockstar.

Both covers have a dark, fall theme with the actresses rocking the trendy, dark, crimson lip.  For me, Katrina wins.  Her face has a touch of attitude, but her dress gives her innocence.  While Sonam looks gorgeous, the whole cover seems a little sad to me (including her boobs).  Although, The Daily Honey (whom the photos are from) did point out Katrina’s missing armpit thanks to Photoshop.  Nevertheless, we still crown Katrina the winner. And we have to admit, she is our favorite in the current Bollywood crop especially thanks to this awesome song from MBKD, which we will spotlight for #MusicMonday:

So what do you think?

    I agree – Katrina looks a lot better than Sonam does in the cover issue. She’s got the old-world elegance that can carry of such a look so well. Sonam has used dark lipstick at two or three major public events and she’s botched her look everytime she’s gone down that experimental route – nude/pink lips and a fresh-faced look suit her better. Besides, you’re right – Sonam’s boobs do look unfortunate – a little bit of photoshopping there would have helped more.
