Stunningly ... Awful.

Gul is always reliable for a fashion flub or ten. She arrived at the launch of Anita Dongre's LivaViscose Collection at Phoenix Mills in Lower Parel rocking a pair of aviators. The shades were the only positive in her entire look. She's gone the way of SRK by pairing a scarf over her too short, midriff-baring tank, which, by the way, tells us she's "sexy" since her appearance itself says nothing of the sort. You know how I feel about acid wash jeans and to what decade they actually belong. The ultra low rise creates the unflattering illusion of short legs and a disproportionately long torso. Don't even get me started on her silver sneaks.The Match Patrol had a busy afternoon at this event. Sambhavana Seth wore what is actually probably a beach cover up as a top over denims. I'm not a fan of the halter here as it's too cas in the baby pink color, but I'm absolutely perplexed by the asymetrical hemline. For a top, the hem is like a foot too long. She paired her outfit with an all-too-matchtastic pink Guess croc bag with white and hot pink piping. I do like that she wore her hair naturally curly to the event - it's a welcome change amid the sea of blow outs. But the light pink eye shadow? Really? Overall, this look is too Pepto Bismol for me.While I actually like Isha's bright, summery AND by Anita Dongre dress, she's gone ahead and ruined it with a case of Extreme Matching with accessories that don't gel with the cas vibe of the dress. You've already noted Isha's odd white-rimmed shades above. Add to that her white watch, white bag and those cringeworthy white sandals and what do you have? A reverse sunny side up egg. Mad citations for this one! I can't really say which is a bigger crime, Extreme Matching or overall schlubbiness a la Gul. Any thoughts?By comparison to these girls, Neetu fared markedly better. Of course, she is seen here posing next to Gul, so take it for what it's worth. I like the color and ruching detail of her dress which is also an Anita Dongre creation. Plus, the length is very ladylike which is a nice bonus. She went minimalist with her hair, makeup and thankgod, her accessories. While I'm not a fan of her white strappy sandals, at least she made a bold choice of a color that "goes with" her outfit rather than matching her outfit. Any neutral shade like white, black or tan would look excellent here.

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…

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.

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.
