Sharon Stone is undoubtedly one of the most stunning actresses we've ever known. From her very first Basic Instinct film, the diva had us drooling at the snap of her fingers.
28 years later, the beaut still oozes the X-factor as she poses with a boy-next-door as she features as the cover star for Harper's Bazaar's recent issue. What's good? She got chatty with her star interviewer, none other than the gorgeous Sonam Kapoor Ahuja herself, and oh boy, we've never wanted to be teleported to a scene more! *grunts in envy*
Styled by Nonita Kalra, Sharon donned this ethereal, monochrome Bibhu Mohapatra number for the cover still. She also sported some delicate diamante from the Bibhu X Forever Mark collection.
A feminist herself, Sonam has always had strong opinions on this oh-so-controversial topic. Only genuine that she will ask the one-and-only Sharon Stone about her take on the same. "I think that women have always had to be far more ambitious than men, who were just supposed to work. Women had to raise families, be beautiful, and keep the house together," Sharon elaborated. Well, now that's something!
Dressed in ensembles from Bibhu Mohapatra in vivid hues and stunning silhouettes, Sharon sure looked like the superstar she is. Talking about fame and it's power, she tells Sonam, "I almost think of fame as an object. You can’t let it run you or it’ll destroy your life. If you think of fame like any other unwieldy thing that can happen to you, then you can use it objectively, with purpose. You have to be able to use it in a way that becomes successful and that it works for you, not controls you." Well, wise words to abide by, don't you think?
Beauty, being an integral part of this job and this industry, has always dictated the life of actresses. When asked about her take on beauty, she added, "Well, beauty for me goes far beyond prettiness. Last night I thought if I could pick what I come back as I’d like to come back as the wind. I think that the wind is pure and free to be everything. Beauty is calm and gentle and tender and fierce and wild. Beauty is everything as long as it’s pure."
We certainly can't have enough! Check out more shots from the cover story here:
