Architectural Digest India featuring Deepika Padukone

Architectural Digest just recently launched publication in India. Isn't that amazing? I was astonished, because with all of the beautiful architecture, sculpture and art India has you would think this would've been implemented years ago. I had to do a double take when I read it and ask why so long?

To grace the inaugural issue they enlisted Deepika Padukone. I haven't followed her career and know nothing of her personal life, but what I've read is truly extraordinary. She's very accomplished and beyond beautiful.

I thought the photo shoot for this editorial was simply gorgeous, because it encompasses exquisite designer fashion and fabulous India interior design.

Watch the video. They show closeups of all the fabulous India decor used in this spread. It's breathtaking and amazing. I really enjoy learning about other cultures.Have a great Monday! :)


Jexika S/S 2012  and Elie Saab Spring 2012

  11. wow!!she was a tennis player,then a model before becoming an actress.she's not a very strong actress but she's tries...indian architecture is covered by all other magazines..it is hard not to since it has been an inspiration to every artist living here or who know something of it..AD is just foraying into the market..good question-why so late?
    i think you should check out sonam kapoor.she has a brilliant and original sense of style..

  14. Oh my gosh, she's so beautiful! And after watching the video, I think my idea of carrying a fan around with me to blow my hair and dress just so for whoever may walk by with a camera is a good one! hahaha lol Just loved that hot pink long skirt in the video! Looks like a beautiful issue!

    Hope you had a lovely weekend, Kim!
