Taking a break from shaadi-talk for a moment, Neetu Chandra attended the Gitanjali Derby at Mahalakshmi Racecourse in a colorful maxi dress that generates an "ehhh" response from me. Here's why. I like the way the dress fits Neetu (obv, it's a maxi), and the sunset-inspired colors are lovely. What I dislike is the print - it seems too busy when coupled with the color and takes the maxi precariously close to hawaiian shirt territory. The red plastic detailing on the straps when taken with the yellow earrings Neetu has chosen, make the whole look rather matchy matchy. I actually like the teased her on Neetu - it looks cas yet refined. Her overall look: I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either. Whaddaya think?Photo Source.

meh.. i think she should have ditched those awful earrings, and maybe accessorized with a mixture of skinny & chunky wooden bangles. You're right.. that maxi is on the verge of being tacky.

Oooo yes, the wooden bangles would have been a nice - non-matchy - touch. I really wanted to like this one ... alas. ;)

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.
