Trust Alia to turn people green with envy in cooling blue water! We are drooling over this look! The Gaurav Gupta, neon green dress with dewy makeup is making it all look perfect.

 

Also, check out the snippet of her conversation with Rega /jha, ex-head of Buzzfeed India. Jha shared a small snippet for her Instagram family and talks about her experience meeting Alia. The conversation talks about Alia’s struggle s a young, carefree girl in B-town, to the pros and cons of filmy background and most importantly about mental health issues. A talk long due, we believe!

my favourite thing to learn about is how people in extraordinary circumstances reckon with them. so of course I loved meeting @aliaabhatt and I loved writing this tiny piece. I also really, really love these photos. full piece is in the new @vogueindia — swipe for excerpts. also, here, a paragraph that we sacrificed for the word count: The thing with being 26 is no matter how well we know ourselves, there are surprises yet to be had. There will be bigger flops, achier heart-aches. We will find dreams we hadn’t dare utter have come true. Tragedies we thought only befall other people will make their mark, somehow, in our own softening skin. Life will not spare us the suffering that rears wisdom though we may be spared the wisdom itself. It is in this new knowing and not-knowing that some of the toughest work of being alive kicks in, and it’s work that even A-listers with 38 million Instagram followers aren’t exempt from. The work of holding a mind together. Tempering its bad, nourishing its good. The gentle, patient self-examination; the nurturance of and by friendships; the will and courage to detach from external validation and censure both. These are the conditions for contentment. Money, beauty and fame less so. Maybe we need to hear this much more often from those who have all three in absurd excess.

Apart from that, you will also find suggestions on where and what to eat when there. Bourdain had a distinct personality on screen.
