    She needs to relax her mouth a little.

    Definitely their most high-end/high fashion/high-concept covers ever (…her hair is worth a pass alone). Too bad it’s a high fashion concept from several years ago. Still better than the current covers of Italia/US/UK Vogues.

    And next month, it’ll be back to 1st-year graphic design post-production mess, or mid-range department-store signage on the cover LOL (Vogue India’s coverlines are always so unintentionally tabloid-trashy hilarious… “Young And Restless” is so soap-level kind of ambitions LOOOL)

    Considering the awful stuff they usually produce this cover seems decent. It's still a bit tacky but I am going to blame it on Lubomirski. He always had bad taste.

    ^^^ India has only begun their ambitious race into the top industrial nations merely a decade ago. They’re still in many many many ways far from a first-world nation. The great divide between the have and have-nots is still staggeringly wide. And as with many newly-prosperous, emerging nations that are only starting to catch up to the West in terms of luxury branding as high fashion presentation, I’d cut them a break. They may have a deeply rich cultural history in many aspects— but they are devoid of the brand of high fashion/high design history that we’ve come to take for granted in the West. Vogue India is like a 1st-year design/fashion student; still searching for a fashion identity, but in the meantime, rippling everyone off and not doing it all wrong. (I'm more baffled at how utterly lacking in talent and skills the new generation of hyped so-called creatives from the West are more than what’s up with the lack of Indian talent, frankly.)

    I’d wish Vogue India would embrace their Bollywood history and take it from there: OTT gaudiness, tackiness and bright, kaleidoscopic color-palette can be a powerful, joyous signature when done right. Looks at the likes of Christian Lacroix/David LaChapelle/Anna Piaggi embracing gaudy maximalism and becoming such masters at it. Never be ashamed of your gaudiness/tackiness, kidz.
