A look at the hottest covers this month featuring some of the sexiest people in B-town, from Sonam Kapoor to Jacqueline Fernandes and…surprise surprise!…Siddharth Malhotra

If this month’s most popular magazine covers are anything to go by, it’s raining hotties in Bollywood this February. And we were quite pleased to see that the leading magazines managed to capture five babes and a hunk with class and style. Yet, to be honest, some of the gals babes do need to put in a little more effort to up their glam quotient, though on the whole they all look fighting fit and sexy as all out!

Anuskha Sharma – the Band Baaja Baaraat babe poses in teeny orange hot pants and a crochet baby blue top and looks more like a Playmate than a top B-town actor! Sporting a full pout, and that just-woken sleepy eyed look, Anushka  seems completely ready to drop her inhibitions. Full marks for the oomph quotient!

Jacqueline Fernandes – the Race 2 gal chooses a more classic, conservative look, complete with a head-piece et al. She is all decked up to go to the prom, it seems – a very grown up one – in her ornate gold gown by Shantanu and Nikhil, worn with heavy jewellery. And who is the lucky man who will escort her – any guesses?

Neha Dhupia – the lady with the lush curves is the fittest of them all, spilling out of her sleek black lingerie and biker jacket as she poses suggestively on the cover of a men’s magazine. We wonder what workout routine Neha follows, ‘coz the Action Replayy actor has looked the same since her Julie days, if not in even better shape. Psst….Neha, what’s the secret? Do let us know!

Nargis Fakhri – she may have been simple and sweet in Rockstar, but her minimalist look on the cover of a B-town gossip mag is hardly inspiring. Decked in a rust colored Gucci dress, wearing zany fruit and seaweed-inspired jewellery, she got us thinking – just what was it with Nargis that caught our fancy when we first saw her? Maybe it’s just an unflattering angle or something, but something about this image doesn’t feel right…sigh!

Ileana D’Cruz – this import to Bollywood looks like a total supermodel as she poses with a panache rarely seen in B Town beauties. Dressed in an elegant white Dior dress, the Barfi! actor looks more stunning than she did in the movie. What seems to be missing are a few wicked tattoos…with those, her look would have been complete!

And here comes the unexpected – the dude among so many babes is Siddharth Malhotra, who pouts aplenty in a red corduroy jacket. Now with men there’s not as much styling required as with girls, we know. And for someone who is a certified stud – consider the pre-pubescent squealing he is always subjected to when he makes an appearance! – even if Sid turned up in his PJs the girls would babble joyfully! For so casual, he looks cool. We hope though that he experiments with his style soon, since we expect so much more, considering his mentor is a certain Karan Johar!

The winner of the least inspiring cover crown goes to – and yes, we did not expect it either – Sonam Kapoor! The self anointed high priestess of style has nothing new to offer this time as she poses looking back over her shoulder, a sheer drape swathed around her shoulders. You take a look and decide if you agree with us!
