Nokia 15th Annual Star Screen Awards: Misses

Update: Deepika's outfit might have been for a performance at the awards. If so, it's on par with standard Bollywood stage-wear. These ladies sorely disappointed with their fashion choices. As usual, Gul Panag showed up in a disastrous outfit. I appreciate the style aesthetic of adding a pop of color to a black ensemble with a pair of bright heels, but I don't appreciate it enough to overlook the fact that her hair all-too-closely resembles the two unfortunately placed rosette bouquets on her dress. After a string of fashion miscues on her Chandni Chowk to China tour, I was hoping that Deepika Padukone would come out hot. Deepika, Stars on Ice Called. Surya Bonaly wants her outfit back. In all seriousness, the print on her lehnga was passable, but the mesh on top of what can only be a leotard, is a total and complete miss. Celina Jaitley arrived sans freaky aquamarine contacts (yay!), and while I am partial to the ombre effect, the brown was overkill. Perhaps a deep purple would have worked better with the deep blue?
Update: As usual, we have our "misses" that are so beyond the pale that I don't even have anything to say other than no surprise here. I present to you, our usual fashion catastrophes: Rakhi Sawant and Ko
ena Mitra.

Ugh. Tacky, tacky, tacky. Deepika what are you thinking????? Stars on Ice sums it up perfectly :-D

Ooh how I love to snark at red carpet disasters. And just LOL at Rakhi Sawant. At least she's reliably entertaining and Barbie Doll-like.

You know how they say there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes? Well I'd venture a third: Rakhi showing up at an event like an overexposed Barbie doll.

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.

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
