Move Over, Ladies...

The bevy of Bolly-beauties, Aishwarya, Sonam, Padma and Freida, aren't the only desi faces appearing in maintstream, western fashion glossies! Sonny Caberwal, a former attorney, and present day entrepreneur/high-end tea shop proprietor/model, appeared last year in the Kenneth Cole "We All Walk In Different Shoes" campaign.Via Sepia Mutiny.
Sonny now appears in all his turbaned glory in the pages of German GQ in quite an extensive fashion spread. First Ken Cole, and now GQ. It's fantastic to see the pagadi in this chic, high-fashion light! I, for one, am wholeheartedly glad to see western media (and that too, the ever-fickle fashion media), reaching out to Sikh traditions. Some may call it exploitation of customs or superficial pandering. But I call it progress, baby! Nothing makes me giddier than a nerd at chess camp than when I flip open [insert fashion mag here] and find a beautiful desi face staring back at me. Check out the rest of the smokin' hot photographs from the spread here.Via Sepia Mutiny.

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.
