Best Dressed Bollywood

Happy 2009 and Welcome! As this is my first post ever, and my first post of the New Year, what better way to kick things off than to raise a glass (a Bellini preferably), to the most fashionable Bollywood scene-stealers of '09.

Bollywood celebrities are often known for their - let's face it - unfortunately flashy sartorial taste both on and off the red carpet. While fashion flubs were plentiful in 2008, refined taste could be found if one looked carefully. The following ladies have collectively upped the ante in Bollywood style.

# 10 - Ms. Piggy Chops a.k.a. Priyanka Chopra.

While she may not be the most adventurous in terms of style, one must applaud the fact that Ms. Chopra knows what works and works it well! We know she has a penchant for satin tiered dresses and her go-to Jimmy Choos. If only she would step outside her comfort zone on occasion.

# 9 - Sonali Bendre.

Although she has been MIA from films of late
, Ms. Bendre continues to make her stylish presence felt at premieres and television shows such as Indian Idol. Ms. Bendre took a risk with her edgy hair cut which she balances with her always polished look.

# 8 - Lara Dutta.

A former Miss Universe, Ms. Dutta is obviously graced with good looks. However, as we know, good looks do not always guarantee good taste. Fortunately, Ms. Dutta has plenty of both! She looks stunning in bold colors.

# 7 - Katrina Kaif

A model-turned-actress-turned-Bollywood-hit-machine, Ms. Kaif carries off both western and Indian attire admirably. In addition to the impeccable draping of her saris, she consistently tones down the makeup and accessories when her sari is heavily embroidered.

# 6 - Frieda -Slumdog Millionaire-Pinto.

Ms. Pinto has been rocking a whirlwind of awards shows and Slumdog premieres! The up-and-coming actress is at total ease on the red carpet with her bold use of form and color in her red carpet choices. A crowd follower she is not!

Well, kids, that's all for now. Stay tuned for the five most fashionable celebs of 2008!

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…

Coming to a Screen Near You: Freida Pinto.

So not only is this lass charming fashion houses the world over, Freida is racking up the film offers! We already know Freida's been tapped for Woody Allen's next project. Now, The Sun is breaking news that Freida has been asked to audition for the next Bond film which is reportedly likely to be directed by none other than Danny Boyle. I may be biased, but I think fab Freida would make one fierce Bond Girl! This is one rumor I hope comes to fruition. Daniel Craig + Freida Pinto = must-see Bond flick.

Archives: Kunal Nayyar Weds Neha Kapur

TV's lovably neurotic astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrapali (aka Kunal N) married former Miss India Neha Kapur in a lavish round of ceremonies in Delhi back in December. Thankfully the real life Kunal doesn't require booze to talk to women - otherwise these two would be headed for a very silent or very drunk married life. Cheers to the happy couple. Here are a couple of snaps from Neha's mehendi ceremony and from their Big Fat Indian wedding reception. I hear it was a small, family affair with only about 1,000 people in attendance. Check out a slideshow of their nuptials here.
