Divas covering the Indian magazines this December, packed with style, attitude and sensuality. Check out these covers of divas and devils, you decide who is what!

The most explosive cover of this month is Veena Malik baring all on FHM. A grenade in hand, ISI on her arm, ammunition belt around her waist (barely covering her modesty) – Bombalicious we say!

Chitrangada Singh – Maxim

This new hottie, whom everyone is talking about after Desi Boyz, has set the Maxim cover on fire. Black and blue dress revealing her cleavage and long luscious legs – terrific!

Priyanka Chopra – Vogue

Is someone taking inspiration from Lady Gaga here? Kangana breaking every rule, as the magazine puts it, with an off-shoulder dress, a huge bee and a weird hairdo, impressive though!

Kareena Kapoor – Filmfare

Vidya & Emran – Stardust

Topless Emran and midriff-showing Vidya caught in the dirty act.

Ranveer Singh – The Man

Kareena Kapoor – CineBlitz

Itna gussa kyun ho Bebo? In a black shimmer mini-dress, Bebo looks hot on this cover.
