Golden Girls

These fabulous ladies just get better and better with age. Narry a fashion misstep in sight with Bollywood's Golden Girls.

What more can be said about the one and only Rekha? Rekha has become famous for the exquisite kanjivaram saris that she rocks out at red carpet events. Rekha's look is typically pulled together by smokey eye makeup and fierce red lips. Kanjivaram is hardly "old school" as worn by Rekha.

Dimple Kapadia, a pr
olific actress in her youth, has of late returned to the silver screen. Ms. Kapadia consistently appears with flawless hair and makeup, and accessorizes her toned down outfits with heavy weight bags with Gucci, Prada and YSL among her favorites. Hema Malini continues to appear in films and onstage in classical dance performances. Ms. Malini's glowing skin is only enhanced by her choices of tastefully blinged saris for her public appearances.

Kirron Kher, an actress in her own right as well as the wife of Anupam Kher, Ms. Kher's heavily embroidered silk saris never fail to set off her classic kundan jewelry. As much as gold zari can be associated with Ms. Kher, earthy tones can be associated with the evergreen Shabana Azmi. Ms Azmi often pairs tribal-inspired jewelry as statement pieces along with her deep hued salwaar suits.

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.
