Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai is bouncing back after her controversial Elle India cover by looking fierce on the front of Vogue India's February issue.
The 37 year old starts out her stunning cover shoot by striking a pose in a Roksanda Ilincic feather shoulder jacket.
The rest of her spread was shot on a yacht, where she changed into a red Jenny Packham gown, a black and gold split personality Cue by Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna dress, a sexy Atsu red coat, and a white long sleeve Valentino ruffle dress.
We love everything about Ash's shoot.
It's sexy with just a hint of edginess and it doesn't hurt that she's absolutely gorgeous.

Women with olive-based skin tones will be delighted to hear the MAC Cosmetics is launching a line of makeup specifically for you!
The line designed by longtime Bollywood makeup artist Mickey Contractor features yellow-based foundations and concealers as well as bright eye shadows and lipsticks that will compliment natural skin tones.
Contractor says his collection came about after certain makeup appeared gray on clients with yellow tones:
"The inspiration for this collection really came from what I felt Indian women needed. Pigmentation and discoloration problems around the mouth and under the eyes is something that most people in India have a problem with, so creating the concealers was really important to me.
Outside of India, they'll also work beautifully on Hispanic, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern skins, which can also have similar issues with pigmentation."
Mickey's collection officially launches online and in select stores January 6th.

Elle India is off to a bad start in 2011.
Like Gabourey Sidibe, the mag is being accused of lightening January cover girl Aishwarya Rai's skin and she's furious!
A source close to the Bollywood actress told the Mumbai Mirror:
"Aishwarya's first reaction was disbelief. Not in this day and age when women are recognized for their merit, and not for the color of their skin. She is currently verifying this skin-whitening allegation. If there is any proof of this, she might even take action."
Good for her!
But for Elle's sake, we're really hoping they didn't do anything especially after all that September dramz.

Times are a changin'!
India is releasing its first gay film, titled Dunno Y, which is touted as "Bollywood's answer to Brokeback Mountain."
It is the first Indian movie to feature a male gay kiss.
While we think it's great that director Sanjay Sharma is willing to make such strides in the country, many religious groups are criticizing the movie, saying that it's "against the order of nature."
It's sad that so many groups are against this film, however, we still believe that it's a huge step toward equality in India.
