Where In The World Is Aishwarya?

Paris, Madrid, Berlin. La Rai's had a whirlwind European tour promoting Pink Panther 2 or La Pantera Rosa 2, if you prefer. Let's take a look at some of her appearances. One thing is clear: girl loves her pant suits!

Looks like La Rai borrowed a coat from Amitabh's velvet collection. The length of the coat and the heavy material are the opposite of flattering. She's completely overwhelmed by that blasted coat. You'll notice that at most of these events, Aishwarya has maintained the same makeup look - she knows what works on her, and with such a tight schedule, I see the merit in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Her hair in Paris was essentially her go-to look: wavey and side parted.Photo Credit: Francois Durand/Getty Images Europe.
I must say, I like the color of her suit for the Madrid photo call. It's unusual, and not as severe as black for a daytime event. The big news here, is her hair! She went for sleek, straight, and teased at the crown. Love it!Photo Credit: Carlos Alvarez/Getty Images Europe.
At the Berlin Film Festival photo call, Aish went with a basic black suit - it's well tailored and fits her well so no complaints there. Hair this time was sleek and side-parted. On the red carpet, La Rai was absolutely dazzling! She went with a bold, in-your-face hot pink. The gown could have been just slightly longer, I feel. Or she could have paired it with bejeweled flats. Love that she went necklace-free since the gown has such heavy detailing. Her sparkly, chandelier earrings were the perfect touch. Hair-wise, she stuck to the familiar tousled waves. Update: Aish wore a modified Roberto Cavalli to the Berlin Film Fest red carpet.Photo Credit: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images Europe.

As an aside, for some reason Aishwarya's caught some flak in the past for posing with the traditional namaste greeting while wearing western clothes at international events. I guess some critics feel like she's overplaying the good Indian girl persona. Personally, I see nothing wrong with it. In fact, as you can see in the Berlin photos, it's very classy and tasteful. It's not like she's wearing something totally scandalous and posing with the sweet smile and respectful namaste. Aishwarya is one of the most visible and internationally recognized celebrities, as far as I'm concerned, she's being genuine when she namastes and she's just keepin' it real!

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.
