Golden Globes Hit and Miss

First and foremost, congratulations to the cast and crew of Slumdog Millionaire for bringing home four awards at Sunday's Golden Globes! Now, on to task of seeing how our Bollywood celebs fared at the red carpet! Let's start with our heroine, Freida Pinto. The young starlet has literally flown through a whirlwind of premieres, launches and promotional events connected with her film, and she has survived the barrage of media appearances with much grace and a varied selection of dresses. For the Golden Globes, she wore a Christian Lacroix Haute Couture gown which she accessorized with a Judith Leiber clutch. While the color of the gown looked fantastic, I was not taken by the detailing on the gown itself. The gown was underwhelming as more of a wrinkled mess than anything else.

As far as King Khan, he was thisclose to pulling off a breezy appearance at the GGs, however that sequined black tie tucked inside his unbuttoned shirt is a mystery to me. It is reminiscent of his look in Don, however I don't think Mumbai mafioso/tapori was necessarily an appropriate look for the evening.

In so far as SRK's look was a near hit, Gauri was radiant! Her silver sari was classy and understated, her skin was matte, and her makeup, refined (no oddly pale pink lipstick in sight). Her Judith Leiber clutch and chandelier earrings were a lovely touch.

Someone over at my blog was bemoaning the lack of SRK red carpet photos, and here you have one :-) I will put a link to it.

Loving your blog, desipolitan (and your name!) :)

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.
