So this is happening. Indian actress Kareena Kapoor has “penned” a book about fashion and style.

Releasing globally February 20, 2013, the book, aptly titled, Kareena Kapoor: The Style Diary of a Bollywood Diva, shares Kareena’s personal style tips and tricks. We were skeptical when we heard that she’d be dishing out style advice, but then we saw her in a Tom Ford dress (checkout that WWE-style belt!), bright red lips and burgundy manicure at the book launch, and we decided to give her a try.

At the book launch in Mumbai, Kareena shared this little nugget of insight into why she agreed to work on the book with writer Rochelle Pinto: “I realised: ‘Yes, I’m stylish and I should take the compliment. I took the responsibility of how it feels like to be a style diva.” Hmmm. She also shares the secrets of becoming alarmingly thin a size zero and how to treat your man right.

We’re putting Kareena’s guide to the test over the next few weeks (well, not the size zero part). Lookout for our in-depth review of Kareena Kapoor: The Style Diary of a Bollywood Diva, at the end of February.
