Adah Sharma on the cover of Avant Garde Life

by Devansh Patel

"You can opt for natural and dainty or stay bare,
or be garish and gaudy and have fake hair,
it doesnt matter what you do,
as long as your 'adah' is alive in you!"

If you think being a cover girl for a lifestyle magazine is an unachievable pipe dream, this proves it's not. The above short poem or a rhyme, whatever you call it, is written by the newest cover girl Adah Sharma. Now let's admit it, to become a cover girl (for any magazine) is an honour. The first thing that is required of cover girls is a suitable physical appearanace. Of course, typically every model has a suitable appearance in order to remain in their given profession. But cover girls are selected based on different aspects of beauty. Instead of typical high fashion models which are primarily suitable for runway modelling, magazines enforce a commercial look, a commercial celebrity that'll sell their glossy pages. Welcome Adah Sharma to the newest form of art - the cover

Adah quotes, "Its my first fashion shoot. the cover is about a dazzing diva, the arc lights shining brightly at her, staring at her and shes staring back at them strongly. Her eyes are confident, constant, decided and doubtless. She's chic and snazzy and oozes charisma from every pore, and with all that heavy metal shes wearing , yes shes a rockstar!"

She adds, "To me 'style' you have to be born with.. 'fashion' can be bought. While fashion keeps changing every months, style is eternal. Your style is your 'adah'. You can buy all the fashionable stuff from everywhere on the planet but if u dont have the right 'adah' you can go all wrong. I love being well dressed, dressed in all the loveliest clothes but if you lack poise and grace you cant flaunt your clothes off. Style is my way of life, its ingrained in the way I walk and talk. I breathe in style, eat, think, sleep and even sneeze in style. Every cell in my body has in it a different 'adah'."
