As the actors welcome in 2014 in their sexy avatars, we take at those who have managed to ring in the New Year in a super stylish way on the covers of popular glossies …

Every actor likes his or her best shot on the cover of a popular magazine. And 2014 is a fabulous way of setting that all-important mood for the rest of the year. Already, January is a rocking start, with faces old as well as new faces

on the cover page of popular fashion and film glossies. While we liked most of the new avatars of our favourite B-townies, some looked drab despite their best efforts. Take a look at the B-town babes and blokes who provide fashion inspiration right at the start of the brand new year…

Vidya Balan on Filmfare

The Kahaani actor poses in a flowing yellow and red outfit on the cover of the popular film glossy. Vidya, who is generally criticised for her fashion sense, looks vibrant and elegant thanks to the colours and styling. It is a relief to see this side of the Shaadi Ke Side Effects star after a really long time!

Kangna Ranaut on Vogue

Kangy has impressed us with her antics in the trailer of Queen. Though the Krrish 3 baddie looks super stylish in Burberry Porsum separates, she doesn’t impress us greatly with the drab look. We expected Kangna to choose more dramatic makeup and a funky hairdo – after all, we see that side of her more often!

Deepika Padukone on Stardust

As usual the dimpled beauty looks like a pure seductress in the low backed blue sequined gown. With such a perfect bod and minimal make-up, the Ram-Leela star is simply stunning as she strikes a pose for the cover of the popular gossip magazine. Though Dippy looks perfect, we would have loved to see her in something more edgy and interesting.

Nargis Fakhri on L’Officiel

One of the best bikini babes we know, Nargis Fakhri is on the cover of the January issue of L’Officiel. She wears a burnt orange Gucci gown. The Madras Café actor looks extremely glamorous and picture perfect with her classic hairdo. The gorgeous gal will be soon seen in Main Tera Hero opposite Varun Dhawan.

Alia Bhatt on Elle

The vivacious Student Of The Year makes a pretty picture on the latest cover of the fashion mag. Alia looks ethereal in the mint coloured top and trousers by Turquoise and Gold and a Louis Vuitton scarf used as a headwrap. We love the minimal makeup and the scarlet lips.

Vaani Kapoor on FHM

The Shuddh Desi Romance actor poses pretty in black hot pants and bra on the cover. The actor sizzles in this never seen before avatar – a stark contrast to her desi look in SDR opposite Sushant Singh Rajput. Though the makeup is minimal, we love her kohl rimmed eyes.
