Channeling DDLJ: Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye

There were more misses than hits are the music launch for the film Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye. First up, Anushka Manchandani was very Robin Hood: Men In Tights with her Robin of Luxley boots and her blueberry tights. Taken with her oddly long tunic and her blue leather jacket, well, I just don't understand this look at all.

Alka Yagnik disappoints as usual. Ignoring the limp, lifeless hair, I must ask, what is with the wallpaper print on her salwaar suit? What may look good on a wall does not necessarily translate to good on a dress. Her necklace is interesting though. Reminds me of something the lovel Shabana Azmi might wear.

This unidentified woman provides us with an example of a patiala done wrong. The ultra-looseness characteristic of partiala pants should be balanced with a shorter, more fitted top. See Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met for an example of patialas done right! Update: Thanks, Rima, for identifying this lady for me so we can all know the source of this fugliness. It's Shubhi from MTV Roadies (season 3) as well as from Chak De India.

Finally, we come to Raima Sen. While she wasn't hot hot hot, she was measurably better dressed than the other celebrities at the launch. You can't really go wrong with basic black. Love the shiny hair and toned down makeup as well as the fact that she didn't OD on accessories as some celebs tend to do to "liven up" black. However, not such a fan of the sheer long-sleeves.

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.
