Just Say No ... not-quite-nude, semi-opaque, shimmery tights! This is a fashion faux pas that all too frequently makes appearances at Bollywood events. The latest victim is the lovely Amrita Rao who demonstrates that beauty and style do not always go hand in hand. Amrita is seen at the Victory Music Launch in Mumbai, wearing an Arshiya Fakih dress that represents the unholy union of prom and cocktail dresses. The dress was not terribly impressive on the runway, but coupled with those awful tights and that straight from Claire's purse, well, it's been taken from bleh to fugly. I couldn't find a full length picture of this fashion disaster, but I am willing to bet money that she is wearing strappy heels. To minimize the damage here, she should have lost the sparkly bag, freaky colored contacts, and the tights and gone with bare legs and mile-high heels. Our repeat offender of the shimmer tight fugliness, is Divya Khosla Kumar, seen here at the Ghajini Success Party in Mumbai. If Amrita's get-up had a certain prom-like quality about it, then Divya is straight up the Riverdale High 1988 Prom Queen. That hair. That sparkly head band. Those giant rosettes. And of course, the subject of this post: those awful tights coupled with open-toed sandals which do nothing for the outfit. Don't get me wrong. Tights are great! But you must choose: opaque and colorful or sheer and nude (or black). You cannot go sheer and almost-but-not-quite nude! And please, for the love of God, shimmer is not cool!

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.
