Nokia 15th Annual Star Screen Awards: Near-Hits

These two ladies dramatically stepped up their style game at last night's Awards. The toned down color of Amrita's Swapnil Shinde Spring 2009 dress was a vast improvement over her recent appearances (read: no flashy prom dress, no non-nude shimmery tights). She could use some help in the accessories department - perhaps a pair of heavy earrings a la Sonam Kapoor, and a new clutch to replace this silver clutch that she's been carrying around a lot. A sleek hair style would have gone over better than the casual, tousled look that Amrita opted for, and would have taken her from near-hit to full on hit. For once Kangana showed up to the awards in attire that was appropriate for the occasion and, as an added bonus, there was no bowler hat in sight! You can't really go wrong with a white georgette sari, however Kangana was a near-hit because the sari was a little plain for the event. She should take a page out of Jaya's book - the embroidery on Jaya's white and silver sari was exquisite.

Kangana struck some weirdly masculine poses in her sari, I didn't think she looked at all comfortable in it...and I hate Amrita's dress (although it is an improvement over the shiny opaque stockings). She's so pretty and young; maybe Sonam K. can give her some tips :)

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.
