"Love your curves", but where are the curves? Sonakshi Sinha as the cover girl for Vogue

It is good to see high fashion magazines celebrating and embracing diverse images of the female body, especially curves. In its May issue, Vogue India features Sonakshi, with a cover that screams “Love your curves”, thus sending a powerful message of accepting oneself, regardless of size. We all know, the girl loves her curves and flaunts and endorse it like no one else does. That definitely makes her a perfect ambassador for the cover story.

However, looking at the first two initial images of Sonakshi, released by the fashion glossy, i am not too convinced. I feel, instead of accentuating the curves of Ms. Sinha, the magazine is more focussed on hiding her curves - to make her look slim. The question is – has she slimmed down or is it the magic of photoshop? I don’t think the images truly communicate or justify the wonderful idea behind the cover story.  

For now i am just waiting to lay my hands on the print version of the magazine to see all the images.And, i hope i am proved wrong; as i would love see Sonakshi in her actual curvaceous self rather than in a photoshopped avatar.
