Fan Bingbing vs. Sonam Kapoor – FIGHT!

March 12, 2014 — 2 Comments

… and Esquire Magazine likes covers with women shaving their fake beards.

I don’t like Sonam Kapoor. Seeing her name on a movie I’m about to watch (or should be in queue) elicits a groan from me, as it happened with Bhaag Milkha Bhaag or Delhi-6, which I must admit was successful and made me not hate her so much. But I’m also not madly in love with Fan Bingbing, so there.

Though I do think that Fan Bingbing is a better actress than Sonam Kapoor, I did find something that the two of them have in common. They’re both fashion ladies. Now they also have photos shaving their fake masculinity, with Sonam being photographed by Rohan Shrestha for… whoever the heck knows this is for.

It’d be funny if it were for a Esquire cover because…

This Chenman photo of Fan Bingbing was used for the 2009 cover of August (or March, I can’t tell the number) Esquire. And in my search… I found other Esquire covers with women shaving. The 1965 cover, which is a bit eye-roll worthy with the caption “the masculinization of the American woman,” and the 2008 cover with Jessica Simpson.
