Mag Rack: Brown is in Vogue

Being brown is in Vogue – literally.

Vogue India – the fashion bible of the Motherland (and beyond!) – has put women of all shades of dusk on its cover.

Cover models Ashika Pratt, Diva Dhawan, Esha Gupta, Fiona Thomas, Gia Johnson, Nethra Raghuraman, Tinu Verghese, Vaishali Ramaswami and Vipasha Agarwal are photographed in Goa by ubersnapper Prabuddha Dasgupta for the April 2010 issue.

This reminds us that the skin you were born with is the right one, in more ways than one.

Watch the shoot in action…
