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…

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.
