Celebs who aced the bathtub shoot
Arpita looks straight out of a fairy tale, posing at Novotel Kolkata Hotel and Residences’s sprawling Presidential suite’s attached bath area. The space designed with a contemporary approach has soothing decor elements like a white chandelier and pebbles spread around the bathtub. A panoramic view of the city from its long glass windows add to the serene and dreamy mood. Roja Paromita Dey has styled Arpita in a red floral outfit from her own label FANUSH by Roja. The organza lehnga and dupatta are digitally printed with large rose motifs and paired with a corset. Accessorised with minimal jewellery from Karishmaz, the floral tiara adds the magical touch. The hair is worn open in soft curls, and the natural make-up look by Aniruddha Chakladar has nude pink eyes smudged outward towards the eyebrows, mascara, blush-on and pink lips.
Raima Sen flaunts a subtle glam look at Hyatt Regency Kolkata’s Regency Executive Suite’s marble bath area that is separated from the suite’s living space. The restful ambience is set up with a jet spa tub surrounded with potted green plants and large glass windows giving a view of the balcony and skyline. Styled by Ankita Banerjee, Raima sports an extended, deep-cut, frilly-sleeved monokini from Miakee by Ayesha Thadani, accessorised minimally with earrings and finger rings by PRIX.TI. Mainak Das’s make-up adds a contemporary touch to the look with bold dramatic eyes, bright red lips and a man bun.

The interiors are spacious and lit with natural light. Rich dark walnut wooden panelling on the walls and parquet flooring dotted with artefacts gives it a contemporary finish.
Actress Paoli Dam looks lovely in this beer spa set-up at Beyzaa Hotel and Suites in Sector V. The bathtub filled with beer and fresh flowers has soothing tea lights placed around the rim and a glass of beer to enjoy on the side. Beyzaa means ‘white’ in Turkish, so the interiors feature a calm colour palette of sea green and white. In sync with the colour palette, stylist Sumit Sinha has styled Paoli’s look in a white custom-made Abhishruti Dutta dress made out of fine lace floral cutwork fabric. Aniruddha Chakladar’s make-up is all about the natural look with nude eyes outlined with a thick eyeliner, strong mascara, blush and bold nude lips.
