Fabulous Freida!

I don't think I'll soon tire of seeing this newly famous desi face in the pages of fashion and beauty glossies. If you can get past the fabulous couture in which Freida is featured, you can learn a few beauty tid bits too. C'mon, who doesn't want to share some of Freida's secrets? Take a dekho at Freida featured in two issues of Us Weekly.Freida swears by Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail color in Quick Sand for an easy to maintain color "that's fresh and low maintenance." I actually use this shade myself. It's a nude and frankly looks almost like foundation in the bottle. But, it's great for a no fuss look. And by the way ladies, nude polish has the same effect on your fingers as it does in the form of nude heels - it creates nice lean lines! We also learn that stylist Jeffrey Paul applies Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade to Freida's locks. I can attest to this stuff as well. I'd caution that you should apply this pomade sparingly to dry hair. It provides a light to medium hold and plenty of shine. Don't OD though, or you'll wind up more grease monkey than glam doll. It's also an anti-humectant so it's great at fighting frizz and humidity! Paul advocates a rose lip color such as Dior DiorKiss Gloss in Berry Smoothie because "[n]ude lips can lack intensity, and red can be too bold."

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.
