So Disappointing...

It's one thing when one of our Bolly starlets makes a fashion goof. But it is quite another when we see fashion designers make a faux pas. Like models and actors, designers rely heavily on their own image to brand and showcase their products - image is everything for these people. However, as designers, we expect them to have some modicum of style sense which is what we expect not out of movie stars, but out of their stylists as well. At baseline, I am not a fan of Pria Kataria Puri's gold lamé-esque dress - there's something about the neckline that is just not flattering. But she totally bombs in the glamour department due to that messy hair and her sloppy accessories, and did I mention that ratty, bird's nest hair? Get a comb, lady. Better yet, hire a hair stylist! As for Anamika Khanna, looking at the designer herself, I wouldn't be motivated to persue her spring/summer collections. Rockstar belt aside, she is a little too Little House on the Prairie for my taste. Bleh. I expect so much more from people in the biz! Gayatri Khanna attended the bash wearing the design of J.J.Valaya rather than one of her own. The Valaya creation is some kind of velvet-satin-velour material in a a print that reminds me of a Tiffany lamp you might find in a circa 1960s bar. Add to that the mock neck and tired old belt, and let's just say that Gayatri didn't do J.J.Valaya any favors in trotting this outfit out.

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.
