Book Review: Inspiring Beauty... Contd

Next in line is Perfect 10 which speaks of the actresses assets. Most beautiful eyes, perfect nose and most lustrous locks are just some of the categories. Though some names are repetitive, the picture used here are a visual treat to the eyes.

Move forward (or backwards) - all the lovely ladies of Bollywood have promoted the brand of Lux. Be it Meena Kumari, Asha Parekh, Waheeda Rehman, Sharmila Tagore, Babita or Jayalalitha - the list is endless. Something really to look forward to!

The next section is different and quite interesting. Titled Beauty-makers, the chapter consists of articles written by photographers like Subi Samuel and Dabboo Ratnani, Make up artists like Jaywant Thackrey, Mickey Contractor etc. and fashion designers like Neeta Lulla and Manish Malhotra.

What is even more interesting is the next part where the book tells us on some of the beauties that Lux had missed on. The list includes Nutan, Jaya Bachchan, Dimple Kapadia, Sonali Bendre, Amrita Rao etc.

Coming closer to the end we see a topless Shah Rukh Khan in a bath-tub. Ring a bell? Yes, that's the same image you got when you saw the Lux ad. He being the first Indian male to endorse the brand has written a column for the book. Talking about the lovely ladies (Hema Malini, Sridevi, Kareena Kapoor and Juhi Chawla) in the ad he was associated with, he praises their beauty.

And the last part and probably the most nostalgic of them all is when they showcase old Lux print advertisements featuring faces like right from Nanda to Sumitra Mukherji to Rekha to Zarina Wahab to the more recent Tabu.

Finally a book on some of the most beautiful women in India! However priced at Rs. 1000 per copy, this one will be something which people will think twice before purchasing. But with spectacular pictures and equally competent columns, this one is a noteworthy book. Whoever said Beauty is only skin deep surely hasn't read this book.
