There are celebrities who are straining at the leash to churn the placid waters of pandemic-hit Bollywood, to catch the photographer’s flash first (we use it figuratively). Then there are stars like Kriti Sanon, who put their down in earnest work, bide their time, and come up for air when the time is ripe. This electric blue dress dazzling the eye as the light catches its velveteen texture surely is worth the effort of Kriti’s reappearance on the glamour scene. While we enjoy it while the apparition lasts, we cannot but help note the awesome symmetry—one bare arm, to keep company with one bare leg, as the hand draws our attention to the appeal of her visage. The occasion? The impending streaming of her film, Mimi. If you liked riding with her in those flicks slick with action, love and laughter, go for it.

The film may be releasing in November 2022—a date that we daren’t dream of—but its subject insists that we take note. She Said is about the courageous journalism by NY Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, who took down Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein from his perch of sexual offences with impunity, exposing his demonic deeds. In the process, they launched the #MeToo movement. Carey Mulligan, who can embody both an innocent naïf as well as someone with nonchalant toughness, plays Twohey, while Kazan plays Kantor. Here they are, arm in arm, a picture of sartorial contrast—Mulligan’s breezy dress set against Kazan’s outfit inspired by the darkest of knights. They have acted together in a Broadway production of Chekhov’s The Seagull—that plangent piece of love’s languorous calls. Can they emulate Hoffman and Redford in making the reporter duo as famous as Woodward and Bernstein? We wait with impatience.

If the variety of styles on this page is trapping you, you feel, in an European aesthetic from which there is little escape, we pull you back in and ask you to lock eyes with the magnetic, kohl-lined pair of actress Malavika Mohanan. If you can tear your gaze away that hypnotic pull of intensity, we beseech you to turn it to the embroidery of the lehenga, the startling, sequined balloon sleeves, the roseate plunge of the bustier blouse and the starkness of the kundan necklace. While you are at it, peel your eyes for the rings that sparkle humbly from Malavika’s fingers. We won’t embarrass you with the outfit’s cost—it’s that expensive. But then think of the weavers and seamstresses it supported. Malavika, whose hair should now invite a closer look from you, will star in Farhan Akhtar’s Yudhra.

Actor Sayani Gupta has been on a special diet and she took to Instagram and shared a series of photos clicked over a period of month since she has been on a diet. “It's not a fad. It doesn't have a name. It's not to lose weight. It's designed as per my requirement. Not everyone needs to or should follow this,” she captioned the photo.

If you aspire to be a glam doll, you gotta ooze archly held confidence—that one quality that transmutes itself into a web of oomph that preys upon blubbery bumpkins like us. Remember, Brigitte Bardot was nothing when she turned it on, topless, at Cannes 60 years ago. The one girl who’s practically brimful of the substance in recent months is Janhvi Kapoor—swimsuits or gymwear, gowns or casual outfits…eyes, hearts and honourable intentions are locked on to her when she steps out. On a similar occ­asion, Janhvi answered our calls and slid into this short, figure-hugging bodycon. Comparisons to a finely modelled hourglass is appropriate, though unnecessary for being in plain sight. Instead of the fulsome praise that she deserves, compliments came in the shape of heart emojis and a likening to Kylie Jenner. Sigh…it’s the banishment of poetry that hurts the most.

On the ‘face’ of it, this is the visage of a reasonably well-preserved 52-year-old. Except that when it answers to the name of Ajay Devgn, diehard fans and their network of followers on social media term it ‘graceful’ and ‘dashing’. All in all, it’s good news for us rapidly graying punters that such salt-and-pepper gravitas has caught on at last here—decades after Cary Grant and, lately, George Clooney, drove a different route to sexiness. The look, by the way, is what Ajay will sport in Thank God, which also features Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh. One acid test then—we have to see if the girl digs Ajay’s looks, even over the handsome Sidharth. If she does, cynics might attribute our satisfaction to an overly willing suspension of disbelief. But we’ll take heart from it, and we’ll tell Rakul to play along in advance.
