Though her year will be ending with the miserable failure of "Yuvvraaj", Katrina Kaif is the cover girl of Vogue India's December issue, which is hailing her as "2008's Surprise Hit".
She has been photographed in a Versace silk dress in purple, the colour of the season. She wears drop earring by Bvlgari.
Priya Tanna, Editor of Vogue India, has said: "The mood of the month is celebratory and Katrina embodies it best right now. A winning combination of stunning good looks and box office success she has truly been the surprise hit of '08 and we caught her in a jubilant and vivacious mood in New York."
However, the cover photo fails to capture this upbeat mood and Katrina looks far from her usual dazzling self. Missing most notably are the twinkle in the eyes and the sparkling smile. In fact, we feel it may be even hard to recognise her if one looks at the picture fleetingly.
