Risk Takers: Red Carpet Edition.

A couple of celebrities stepped out of the same-old-same-old and took some major risks at the Mumbai premiere of Slumdog Millionaire. Genelia D'Souza and Soniya Mehra were successful ... Sushmita Sen, was so not!

Soniya took a risk with a dress that was both short and involved major skin show. However, she pulled it off with what is becoming her trademark breezy style. Plus it does help that her youthfulness and body kindly permit her to go all short and cut-out all at once. Warning: Poonam Dhillon, this would not work on you! The bold blue and black color blocking had an eye-catching effect. And her heels were fantastic! Everything else was minimalist, but those heels...were perfect statement pieces.

Genelia, another young starlet, took a risk with an unforgivingly tight mini-dress. Like Soniya, she has the body to make it work. You're only young once, right? Also love the sleek pony. When done right, the humble ponytail can be red carpet-worthy. She added a pop of color to her otherwise black/white ensemble in the form of her slightly-too-big red clutch. Chandelier earrings would have dressed up her look a little more. Is it just me, or are her heels slightly big on her? Not sure how she managed to walk around without losing a shoe.

Sushmita's big risk was going full-on metallic with her dress. Other than her as always fab hair and makeup, Ms. Sen's risk didn't quite pay off. She looked like someone uncrumbled a ball of aluminum foil and crafted a gown for her.

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.
