The other month one of my friends came back from India with a VOGUE India copy. I was enthralled and sat at his place and looked at every single page. It's amazing to see what advertisers are placing in foreign magazines and who are the dames that grace the covers and pages inside.

US-based Hearst Corporation and the India Today Group have now announced Harper’s Bazaar India magazine with an initial print run of about 18,000 copies studded with Swarovski crystal elements. Out of the 18,000 copies, 3,000 have been decked out with 48 flat-back Swarovski elements of different sizes, while the rest feature 24 flat-back crystals. Bollywood babe Kareena Kapoor has been roped in for the cover page. Thanks to Born Rich for the skinny.
