- The magazine describes Deepika as "infectiously warm and approachable"
- "Beloved in Bollywood and sought by Hollywood," the piece adds
- Deepika Padukone has been styled by Elizabeth Saltzman
We'll let you do exactly that - gaze on the woman herself, her sparkle almost (but not quite) equalled by the heavy-duty emerald and diamond earring dangling from her lobe. Deepika Padukone has been styled by Elizabeth Saltzman for the cover and the accompanying photoshoot.
An image from the photoshoot was shared by Ms Saltzman's team.
This is the second time Vanity Fair has taken note of Deepika - she was featured on the 2016 line-up of rising Hollywood stars. Deepika Padukone is currently high-visibility internationally after starring in xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage opposite Vin Diesel this year. She was at the Met Gala and then at the Cannes Film Festival, featuring on several best-dressed lists. Deepika also attended the after parties for the Oscars and Golden Globes.
At home, Deepika Padukone recently covered Maxim quite spectacularly.
The 31-year-old actress is currently filming Padmavati, in which she plays Rani Padmini opposite Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. She's also committed to star with Irrfan Khan in a film on Mumbai's underworld and its female dons. Here's looking at you, Deepika Padukone.
