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…

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.
