I have always believed that beyond external, skin deep and obvious, beauty lies within you. I believe ‘beauty lies in the eye of the beholder’ as per the old adage. In my case the beholder have been my fans who have always either found beauty in my work, my characterisations, my physical appearance…I think real beauty is when the person themselves are obvious to it and other appreciate it. I thank Vogue for recognising me and bestowing me with this special award as it is truly an award for my fans and their belief.”

Anushka Sharma on being presented the ‘Beauty of the Year’ award said, “I thank Vogue for giving me the Beauty of the Year award. I believe dedication to my work and living with conviction makes my life beautiful. This year has been special and this award validates my beliefs”

Deepti Dadlani, Director of Marketing & Communications, Palladium Hotel, Mumbai said, “It’s an absolute pleasure to welcome the Vogue Beauty Awards to the Palladium Hotel. We are in the age where beauty has evolved to place equal emphasis on the mind as much as on the body, and the Hotel’s dedicated Wellness Floor – including The Spa, Health Club, Swimming Pool and Salon – reinforces this commitment.
