Sonam Hearts Sabyasachi.

Sonam rocked out yet another Sabyasachi creation at the New York premiere of Delhi 6. Update: This time it was Sonam's turn to adopt the Bachchan Sr. dress code: velvet that is - thanks, 'Spencer'. Perhaps AB Sr. and Rekha could learn from Sonam: this is velvet done about as right as it can be done. I prefer this Sabyasachi creation to her prior outfit - right down to the not totally transparent chudidaars. The only misstep is that Sonam seems to have left her considerable mojadi collection back in India, and was forced to grab the only pair of shoes she could find on short notice - hence the dowdy ballet flats.I love that Sonam went wild-n-wavey with her hair this go around. It's a welcome change from her usually pin straight locks. Take a look at that jewelry, ladies! The necklace-earring set is to die for! As far as makeup, Sonam went with a smokey eye/nude lip combo. After applying a highlighter to her brow bones, she applied a sparkly pink shadow all over her lids - from her lashline to the brow bone. She then applied a shimmery, almost translucent grey to that portion of her lids closest to her lashline - when recreating this look, make sure that the pink extends beyond the crease, while the grey does not. The next step is applying either liquid liner or kohl in tightline fashion, but increase the thickness of the line at the outer corners for dramatic effect. She lined the inner rim of her lower lashline, traced the pink shadow along the lower lashline and used an angled brush to smudge in black shadow to set the liner. She finished off the eyes with mascara. She applied a nude, cremey lipstick on her lips and dusted pinky-peach blush on the apples of her cheeks.I haven't forgotten about Sonam's co-star! Abhi-baby did not arrive in a velvet blazer a la Big B - thank God! Instead he channeled a bit of SRK with his charcoal three piece suit. So he has a penchant for facial hair. Fine. I get it. But does sporting a goatee require maintaining a generally unshaven and fuzzy appearance? I think not. Maybe Aish should introduce hubby dearest to the Art of Shaving line of products to get him hooked on ... shaving!Photo Source.

Sonam's outfit is velvet not satin. She looks lovely although not crazy about the outfit.

Abhishek looks elegant for a change. BTW he can't shave because he has to maintain that look (crew cut and moustache) for his movie with Mani Ratnam. Then I hope he shaves.

Oops, thanks Spencer! Velvet it is.

I am glad to hear that Abhi's look is for a film. Although I wonder what was going on right around the AbhiAsh wedding because he had a similarly fuzzy look then too.

After the movie, here's hoping he shaves and keeps the hair cut. So glad to see the poofy hair gone!

I like the poofyer hair on Abhishek! and Sonam's outfit is sooooo pretty!! I love her look for the Delhi 6 promotions. and yes, the ballet flats do kind of ruin it a little... if she had mojadis it would have been FABULOUS!

lol, to each their own, Bollybeat Crew. ;) I think you'll be in luck as I have a feeling the poof will make a comeback.

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…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

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 …
