A Big, Fat, Indian Wedding.

Indian weddings are colorful, bejeweled extravaganzas where attendees often tread the precarious line of totally OD'ing it. No where is this more true than in our beloved Bollywood. The star studded nuptials of a Bollywood financier's son at the Race Course in Mumbai, was the scene of wedding attire done right, and wedding attire done oh-so-wrong!

Celebuspawn Sonakshi Sinha (daughter of Shatrughan) was an absolute vision. Her combination of black and neutral was stunning, yet did not in anyway detract from the colorful bride (it is her day after all)! I love the off-the-shoulder, long sleeve blouse. Its covered-upness offsets the lacey transparency of her sari. The result is that Sonakshi was tastefully eye-catching rather than OTT. She capped off her look with a sleek low bun and neutral makeup.On the other end of the spectrum, we have Nagma, who in her bright red sari has broken the cardinal rule of wedding attendance: do not overshadow the bride! As you would avoid wearing white to a western wedding, so too, you should avoid wearing bright red to an Indian shaadi. Nagma's sari practically screams "look at me! I'm the bride!"Rekha never disappoints in her stunning kanjivaram, although I must ask: is she married? I thought not, but yet again, she is sporting the sindoor so I wonder? Celina (she of the freaky lenses) looks very Bengali and very lovely as well. However, Celina's sari does resemble a paanetar sari which is customarily worn by a Gujarati bride so hopefully Ms. Jaitley didn't pull a Nagma here!
Mads, on the other hand, was sadly a total miss in her schizophrenic sari. It's totally and excessively blinged out on the one hand, but in the most blah biegey-gold on the other. What a shame after her recent appearance.Poonam Dhillon finally nails it with her silk sari that is both age appropriate and flattering. I could do without the shiny bag, however.
The usually slutty Mallika Sherawat was also in attendance at this wedding. To my great surprise, she did not in fact show up half naked! She chose a suit in the popular pink/aqua color combo and while she certainly wears it as tight as humanly possible, at least her legs, midriff and her girls are properly covered! That's progress, right?Photo Source. Photo Source.

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.
