It's Too Early For Halloween.

*Updates Below* At the Jewels of Queenie store launch at Peddar Road in Mumbai, Madhoo wore a sheath-style LBD - it's almost a universally flattering shape. I could do without the giant florals though ... a bit reminiscent of upholstery, no?Vidya arrived in a very familiar silhouette. While I love this black anarkali, seeing as her last two outings (Stardust Awards, Sanjay Dutt party) both involved anarkalis, I was hoping to see her change things up a bit.Queenie Dhody looks great in her gold, satin halter-style floor length number; though I'm rarely a fan of satin. If you must wear satin, the key is to go for body skimming not body hugging! A floaty design ensures that the light doesn't catch the satin at an unflattering way. Sush is a little boring in yet another all-black ensemble, but at least black is safe color that's hard to do wrong.

Oops spoke too soon. Oh. My. God. Parmeshwar Godrej is a fright. Slim though she is, after a certain age I think it's a tad inappropriate to traipse around in a Hervé Léger dress so tight you have to be poured into it. This dress would have been better for Sush. That said, the dress is the least of my concerns with Madam Godrej - with her skin pulled back so tight and the orange tinge of her complexion, I have to be honest: I'm a little scared.

Apparently Ms. Godrej is a fan of this particular dress as she wore one in white (no more successfuly, I might add) back in March of 2008 at the Cartier International Polo Challenge in Dubai.

No body is looking good here:),Vidya in her Anarkali with loose sleeves is just too much,Ms. Godrej always looks like old hag,.
I have seen that most of the people who try to stay slim in advanced age, loose the charm at their face.

Yes, apparently Ms. Godrej isn't aware of the concept of aging gracefully. If I had to guess, I'd say she has had one too many cosmetic procedures done to her face - peels, lifts, tucks, etc. The result being a freakishly tight, orange colored face.

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.
