Sushmita Sen

What’s in an age, really, if you slog to keep yourself, physically, in that charming 25-35 year-old zone (and spend hours updating your exe­rtions on social media). Thus, Sush­mita Sen is free of the hes­­i­ta­tions of forty-plus women whose hearts ache for younger men. Step in Rohman Shawl, fashion model, latest boyfriend. Fear not, young man; just get a copy of Ste­phen Vizinczey’s In Praise of Older Women.

A bounteous twirl of silk made many a fashionista’s day at the Lakme Fashion Week. That would be Sushmita’s flamboyant ‘pantsari’. Yes, nothing sari about it, except a pleated pallu hanging apologetically. Elsewhere, Hema Malini and daughter Esha par­aded gorgeous Assamese silk saris. Later, at a backstage media interaction, mother and daughter were only interested in the latter’s film Cakewalk. Chided for misusing the platform, they stormed off in anger. What happened to the saris, though?

Take heart, all ye out-of-shape 47-year-olds. A ‘post work-out mirror selfie’ by none other than Sushmita Sen urges—not in those exact words—slackers and no-hopers to take heart and follow her example. Such rigorous exertion is a ‘work in progress’ physique, she says, and we take her word for it. And we ask those who’re wondering if this is exa­ctly her work-out attire not to quibble over minor matters and step on to the treadmill!

Went Places, And Arrived It was 1994, and Aishwarya Rai and Sushmita Sen peddled Indian beauty in international fora and enthused young women and cosmetic majors. They were bitter rivals too. This photo at a Mumbai party shows two mellowed veterans.

Didi In The Circle As has been proved amply by the company she keeps, in Mamata's plans for regenerating Bengal, culture, rather than industrialisation, plays a central role. She now turns to Bengal's bevy of actresses for support—Rani, Sushmita, Bipasha, Koel (know this beauty) and Moushumi. Sushmita, as one can see, takes it seriously.

Spangle Show This is one of the stills that launched a thousand maidens and their articles of beauty—Miss Universe 1994, a gangly 18-year-old Sushmita Sen, her astonished hand-over-mouth moment of victory. Ah, the march of Time: this picture makes us nostalgic.

Hand To Heart Where once her unflinchingly shapely sashays down the runway radiated unattainability, Sushmita’s decision to walk back down that thinly sliced memory lane can only be said to have been a bad trip. But if the harsh reality was jarring, Momma Sen’s helping hand was not.

Ramping Up Visibility How’s this for an expanded role in the South China sea? Busan, that’s South Korea, awarded stewardship of the Asia Pacific to Himangini S. Yadu. New to the job, she may be, but no Sushmita protege could be unschooled in jobbing.

La La Ladies The Salman causerati brigade was quite a sensation at the HDIL India Couture Week. Eight leading ladies swayed and batted their eyelids on the ramp, depicting the different eras of fashion. Ask Priyanka, Karishma, Katrina, Preity, Rani, Kareena, Sush and Bips....Well, they were only Being Human to Salman.

Tower Of Power
Sushmita Sen relives her diva days at the I Am She Miss Universe India pageant. The brand ambassador, she walked the red carpet with SRK, the man in black. The dapper Khan succeeded in gaining some height with his spiked hairstyle—all shiny and gelled—but alas, only a few inches beside the towering Sush.
