About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

How to recreate Taapsee Pannu’s bold and playful look for your next festive event

From a bold play of colours to textured hairstyles, let cover star Taapsee Pannu’s glam game inspire you


Bold multi-toned eye make-up with a seamless gradient finish is currently topping beauty charts. Embracing the trend, make-up artist Maniasha chose an eye-catching colour combination of purples and pinks to add oomph to Taapsee’s eyelids. She applied a shimmery wash of soft pink, moving towards the inner corner of her eyes for a brightening effect. Building on from there, a bolder shade of purple was applied on the outer corner of her eyes. The purple shade was extended a few inches further from the corner of her eyes for added drama. To complete the look, a teal blue shimmer shadow was applied to her bottom lash line. Mascara-coated lashes and defined brows completed the eye make-up.

TOP TIP: To warm up to this trend, start with a palette of colours that you’re comfortable with. For instance, experiment with neutral colours before stepping into uncharted colour territory. Regardless of the colours you choose, be sure to use a clean brush when blending the different shades.



Hands down, contouring has proven to be one of the top beauty trends of the decade! To highlight Taapsee’s cheekbones, Maniasha dipped into her contour palette to create a sharp and structured effect. Well-placed highlighter lent her skin a radiant finish.

TOP TIP: Contour your nose and lips for a chiselled look. Place some highlighter along the bridge of your nose, Cupid’s bow and brow bone for a touch of glamour.



From textured waves à la Dita Von Teese to playful boho-chic braids, Michel Baltazar, Creative Director, Jean-Claude Biguine, India, treated Taapsee’s voluminous strands to an array of styles. After all, there are no limitations when it comes to styling curly hair.

TOP TIP: It’s vital not to neglect the health of your hair. Different hair types require different care and it is important to understand the condition of your hair and treat it accordingly.
