A Blogger's Dream.

Awards shows - in this case, a style awards show - are a fashion blogger's dream! The FHM India-Manzoni Style Icon Awards drew all manner of celebs decked out to the nth degree. And while some managed to look flawless, others were walking disasters. Let's have a look see.

Celebspawn, Soniya Mehra flaunted her fresh sense of style and outdid Twinkle in the red department. She let her dress do the talking and kept her accessories minimal. Sophie Chaudhary skipped out on black-and-white accessories as this would have been too matchy and instead, chose to do a pop of color with her Gucci clutch which brought out her pink lip color. This time Amrita Rao also wore some color in yet another Swapnil Shinde creation, but mercifully she avoided a prom queen situation by choosing a more sophisticated silhouette and color scheme. I loved Sonali Bendre's dress which she paired with a monotone clutch and particularly loved her fun and flirty sandals, but I do miss her chic angled bob! You'd think I'd be over this by now ... but I'm not.





















Akki and Twinkle showed us yet again why they are the most stylish duo in Bollywood. Lately Twinkle has even stepped away from her monotone sheath habit. Speaking of couples, Arjun Rampal and his wife Mehr Jessia were the opposite of the Khanna-Kumars in every way, showing up as the all-in-black, matching husband-wife duo.















Things went downhill - and fast - after the Rampals. Deepika Padukone has probably one of the most envied bodies in Bollywood: tall and lean. Her tunic style top had the potential to create some curves, but that thin belt only highlighted the lack thereof. While she certainly has flawless skin, Diya Mirza's all-white ensemble washed out her pale skin. Diya was another celeb who could use a MacGyver Moment to run to the ladies room to cut off the flared portion of her dress which would have resulted in a pretty hot mini that she could have paired with a metallic heel rather than stay in the same color family. The other Amrita - Arora, that is - wasn't a total miss. I loved her black mini paired with an unusual gold necklace, chunky bangles and her Gucci clutch (love it!). However, on her petite frame and paired with a not-so-structured dress, I thought the booties - though Gucci as well - were a miss as they shortened the appearance of her legs.















Speaking of a Amrita, big sis Malaika wore a gorgeous deep purple in a dress that was otherwise ghastly. It reminds me of Jiah Khan's green, satin monstrosity from the Ghajini success party. Like Amrita A and Deepika, Madhoo also wore an outfit that was not particularly flattering to her figure. The tiered ruffles defeated the presumable waist-cinching effect of her wide belt. Last but certainly not least, Aarti Chabria clearly did not ge the memo that the event was the style icon award show and not the lack-of-style icon award show. Enough said.

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…

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.

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.
