Pursuing the Perfect Sparkle

Best Wishes, Huma Bilgrami Latif

Dear Readers,

There’s a saying that goes, “Jewellery has the power to be this one little thing than can make you feel unique,” and we couldn’t agree more. While diamonds are said to be a woman’s best friend, any form of jewellery can put a smile on her face. Our Feature this month is a compilation of some of the most well-known names in the jewellery business, who time and again present trendy and gorgeous pieces of ornaments that can complete any look—whether casual, festive, or grand. Take a look to learn more about how these designers and jewellery labels started out in the business, what inspires them, and the techniques they use.

Dazzling the cover is one of India’s most gorgeous women—Aishwarya Rai Bachchan— who made heads turn with her stunning looks at the recently concluded Cannes Film Festival where she represented makeup brand L’Oreal Paris.

Cover Story is a special feature on the fashion at Cannes where we showcase our pick of the best at the 10-day festival. From Elle Fanning and Eva Longoria to Rihanna and Naomi Campbell, and our very own Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, they’ve all made it to this year’s list. Take a look!

Sensational Spaces takes us through the five storey home of Suruchi and Anuj Khanna in Delhi. The duo’s sprawling home is full of well-designed pieces and charming character.
In this month’s People we have two charismatic women from different fields—textile designer Salma Rana and jewellery designer Payal Shah Parikh. Both these attractive and elegant women have taken their respective fields by storm. Read on to know what the toughest and most exciting part of their work is.
