Victoria Beckham for Indian Vogue

Posh graces the cover of November’s bridal issue for Vogue India. Donning a flowing hairpiece, Victoria traded her micro-minis for designer Indian bridal wear, including a Tarun Tahiliani lehenga along with a traditional bridal jewelry including a tikka. Victoria is said to be blown away by the details and embellishments of Indian outfits, and is quoted to “feeling like an Indian princess” after the shoot. While I think that putting her on the cover is probably a calculated decision to increase newsstand sales, I feel that the readership may have mixed reviews about foreign celebs, so it’s wise to limit their exposure to occasional appearances.

Cause-worthy: Estée Lauder’s Pink Ribbon Collection

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and to bring attention to the cause, Estée Lauder has launched its Pink Ribbon Collection. The limited edition collection includes Elizabeth Hurley Lip Color Collection, a compilation of the star’s 3 favorite lip glosses: Pink (limited edition), Rose and Pearl, tucked in a pink (of course!) zippered travel case.

Next is the Evelyn Lauder Lip Color Collection which consists of 3 lipsticks: Bali Rose (limited edition), Candy and Rich Berry also featured in a pink case.

You can moreover show your support by purchasing a twinkling, gem encrusted pin to support the worthy cause.

Part of the proceeds will help the company donate $500,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, so you can feel good about drenching yourself in shades of pretty pinks.
