INDIAN WORLD SUPERMODEL 2012 Australian based photographer and talent mentor, Raj Suri, is the cofounder of Indian World Supermodel (IWSM). Raj brings IWSM to India in 2012. Raj Suri conducted a professional, targeted campaign involving auditions and a live media event announcement in New Delhi with a VIP guests in the month of October 2012.

ON THE COVER: Richa Shree

FROM EDITOR’S DESK When we started planning this month issue, we asked ourselves one question: “Do readers really care that we’re only 10 months old?” The short answer is “Yes.” The longer answer went something like, “Maybe not, but they do care about this wacky and wonderful place they call home.” We started Lá Fiesta in fall winters this year, now again winter on our next step… With that premise in mind, we set to work on a simple idea: Write this month edition on winters and people living with this season.

42. EVENTAGEOUS: REKHA THE SUPERDIVA The name Rekha which has become synonymous with the term Diva is one of the finest actresses of Indian cinema. This eternal charmer is not only an enigmatic, elusive, timeless beauty but also an extremely desired & popular face of Bollywood. This dignified yet seductive stunner is a Living Legend in her own right. Read and enjoy the pics from a glorious event dedicated to her.

A final note: Editor of Lá Fiesta magazine becomes custodian of a set of bound volumes containing every issue of the magazine. So it seems appropriate that we use this issue to debut this winter season, giving even more coverage to the one thing we can all agree on: There’s nothing like a good WINTER. - MANOJ JOSHI

FASHION & YOU

THE BINDI EFFECT - Suvanko Biswas (Suv) [Fashion Stylist]

I

t has been in tradition since long back that the bindi does wonder in a

women's beauty and attraction. Even when fashion did not come up with its various peripheral knowledge, bindi was eminent through out. And that is how our women are still keeping it in a high tradition today as well to add colors to bindi for their festive seasons. Not only red but colors like yellow, green, blue and various other colors are added with the matched colors of bangles with their saree, kurtis and salwars perhaps a bindi does a lot of wonders with a touch of western style to it with you sexy western wear with an open hair. This festive season I bring about the various style that women's are keeping as their favorite bindi style merging different colors for their festive season like Diwali etc. A bindi does it all with a bright color saree for this Diwali. Not only you can wear the bindi in one single color but have it collaborated with few colors and match it with you saree borders or dupattas that you'll b wearing for the occasion. Pair it up with few bangles and a nice pair of ear rings. You can even add a tri color bindi style probably like a yellow added with a black at the base which will be a bigger bindi then the yellow one. Kolkata has followed the tradition strongly as from young girls to women all have a touch of bindi during all the festival. For the occasion, it would be the red border saree with a huge red bindi during Kali puja and Diwali at Kolkata. But when its like for family time it's those bright colored that do the wonder and bring out the beauty for an individual. So like for the occasion dress for your best style and color that would bring your beauty out for the festival!

Mayank Sahni and Megan Bartley collaborated with David Bousfield to create some stunning ‘Trash the Dress’ Wedding images. At the old pipe works in Newcastle upon Tyne, they dressed in Wedding attire and were set amongst the backdrop of graffiti and decay. More of the work can be seen at www.davidbousfield.org. Trash the dress, also known as fearless bridal or rock the frock, is a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is out of place. It is generally shot in the style of fashion and glamour photography. "Trash the dress" is the art of destruction or deconstruction of a bride's wedding dress to create a new "artwork" that the bride would be proud to display on their wall. It may be done as an additional shoot after the wedding, almost as a declaration that the wedding is done and the dress will not be used again. It is seen as an alternative to storing the dress away.

Hygiene

SPRING ON UR ATTITUDE!! Tattoo ‘n’ Piercing Trend In India Tattooing is a growing art in India and so is the need to expedite the proliferation of this art. Moreover tattooing is no less than a minor surgery and only a trained tattoo artist can conduct them successfully. There are no short cuts to learn tattooing. However there is certainly a proper and perfect way and I will help you to learn that. Tattoo Training and Academy is a one stop shop for all tattoo needs. Be it beginner or advanced level courses or purchasing quality tattoo equipment or tattoo jewelry, we offer it all. Start a Lucrative, Glamorous and Promising career! Call us for Tattoo and Piercing training. Check our website for Trainees from different parts of the country!

At KDzTATTOOs Body Studio, we take hygiene and safety very seriously. Tattoo artists work with needles and human blood. It is critical that when you are choosing a studio, that you consider the health practices of your potential artist. We never reuse ink or needles. For every client and every tattoo we use a new sterile needle which is immediately discarded in a bio hazard-safe container after our work is finished. We sterilize all of our equipment with an autoclave, which is a machine used by hospitals, doctors and dentists to sterilize their equipment to insure bacteria, germ and disease-free instruments. After the equipment is sterilized, each piece is placed in a new, clean bag, and is stored in the autoclave until the next tattoo. We always use latex gloves and we use new ink in small individual containers. We always use a disposable instrument to dispense Vaseline. We also disinfect our work surface (our tattoo table or arm stand) and then seal it with plastic before you are positioned for your tattoo. We urge you, no matter where you choose to get your tattoo, to go with a studio that has an autoclave. This is the best insurance against the spread of germs and disease. We welcome any questions about our health practices or tattoo health in general.

Our Tattoo Studio The mind weaves many beautiful designs, which are either influenced by components or elements, which are close to our life. It requires great talent and expertise to be able to visualize another person's imagination. Apart from customizing designs, KDz offers thousands of attractive designs from which you can choose. We offer a wide portfolio of tattoo designs and body piercings. KDz pays utmost attention to hygiene while making a tattoo. You can always walk in with any concept and we would confidently shape it into reality. Our long list of satisfied clientele speaks for our credibility.

Taking photos in a studio you've never used before, in a city you've just moved to and a model you've never met, is an interesting challenge. How much can you shoot in 90 minutes and will any of the images work? It didn't take long to get into the groove with Mayank Sahni when we shot in Newcastle in November trying out different lighting set ups and wardrobe choices, making it up as we went along. I always prefer shots where it looks like something of a story might be going on - not just a pretty shot, but a shot where there's something of interest beyond the clothes... when we went out into the freezing cold of the streets of Newcastle on a winters afternoon, it could have been that the only thing we saw in the photos was someone looking like they wanted to be inside in the warm! But with the dramatic and sometimes grimy architecture, combined with Mayank's unique style and energy meant we came away with some great images. So it seems that entering the unknown can mean you come out with something unexpected and exciting... - Matt Jamie, Photographer
