Priyanka is to Ferragamo What Freida is to _____?

Gotcha! It's a trick question. The answer could be Chanel or Dolce & Gabbana or both. These lovelies are currently the muses du jour for some big - I mean big - fashion names! Freida is savvily promoting herself internationally to major fashion houses like Chanel and D&G which are eagerly vying for her attention post the Slumdog lovefest. They're lavishing her with straight off the runway designs and invites to VIP events at their respective shows and after parties. Freida was first seen at Milan Fashion Week clad head-to-toe in D&G. Those are some killer heels, by the way!Photo Source.
Freida was then whisked off to Paris to attend Chanel's Paris Fashion Week show for which she was of course decked out in Chanel. She later attended the Karl Lagerfeld (omg!) and Jefferson Hacks-hosted soiree at none other than Coco Chanel's apartment. By the way, when referring to Coco Chanel's near-mythic residence, I fear the term "apartment" is sorely misleading. We're not talking one bedroom with kitchenette, people.Photo Credit: AP Photo.Photo Source.
Lifting a page out of Freida's success story, Priyanka has landed quite the laurel herself. As part of the "Shoes for Stars" campaign, Mid-Day reports that Piggy Chops was invited by the Ferragamo family to have her footprints cast at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence. With this honor, Priyanka followed some very royal footsteps (literally!). The only other Indian on whom this honor was bestowed was the Maharani of Cooch Behar, Indira Devi. A bonus (over which I myself am swooning with envy), the famed Ferragamo shoe designers will create customized shoes for PC based on her tastes and requests, and (what?! there's more?) they will regularly send her these custom-made shoes and handbags. Eeeek. An on-going supply of Ferragamo bags and heels? And that too, customized heels?! Envy...thy name is Ferragamo? Here's a sneek peek at Piggy Chops as shot by Italian fashion photog Gianni Rizotti for L'Officiel India's March issue. She is of course wearing pieces from the Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2009 collection.Photo Source.

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.
