Fugtacular Fug.

Oh my God. There is so much wrong here, I don't know where to begin. First, let's address my pet peeve of celebrities under dressing for events. If you are winning an award at the Lion's Gold Awards, then you must be at least a Z-list celebrity, which means that part of your job is to look good at public appearances. It's not like the paparazzi caught Sambhavana Seth on her way to the grocery store. She's on the red carpet at an awards show! Dress appropriately, woman!

Here's a rule of thumb, Sambhavana, when you are attending a red carpet event, there presumably will be photographers, and these photographers will presumably have flashes, so you should probably check at home that your bra will not totally show through your blouse under a bright flash. When in doubt, go with a nude and not a white bra.

Besides the pure bad taste, there's also something out of proportion with her outfit as a whole. When wearing skinny jeans (and Sambhavana, jeans are not appropriate for an awards show), the top should be looser to offset the the tight fit of the pants. Tight on tight is an unforgiving and difficult silhouette to pull off. Here, not only has she paired a slim fitting top with slim fitting jeans, the vertical stripes on her kurta create an illusion of further tightness. Taken all-together, her choices make her look heavier than she actually is.

You'd think we'd be done with this train wreck but we're not. Pants that stop at the ankle are better paired with stilettos rather than wedges. As Sambhavana demonstrates, ankle-length jeans + wedges = shortened legs.

Next, another pet peeve. Sambhavana, why are you lugging around your giant Guess bag to the awards show if you're just going to carry your phone in your hand? I'm sure the phone would fit in your bag. In fact, I'm sure your trophy would fit in your bag. Come on, take a chic bag to the awards show, as opposed to your I'm-running-errands-in-my-sweats bag.

Finally (thank God; this is exhausting), what is with the stripper hair and makeup?

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…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
