A Time And A Place.

Only in the rarest of rare circumstances would I ever condone the wearing of sweats to any kind of event. As I've said time and again, promotional events are part of a celebrity's job description so if Joe Accountant wouldn't wear sweats to the office, why should Joe Celebrity wear them to a press meet? So basically, the stars have to align just so for me to state that sweats were a-ok. Bips attended an event at Gold's Gym in Bandra either just prior to or just after her own workout. Look at her: she's fresh faced, with her ipod ready to blast tunes. She's at the gym both to workout, and to attend an event which happens to be at the gym. So there you have it. It is perfectly acceptable to wear work out clothes when: (a) you yourself are about to work out, and (b) the event in question is at your gym. That's the rule, peeps.

Now, let's have a looksee at Nandita who attended the Lakmé Fashion Week press meet in velor sweats. As a designer herself, and that too, attending a Fashion Week-related event, what could possibly make her think that sweats were appropriate attire. I don't care if they were overpriced Juicy sweats. Still. Not. Appropriate. She should have taken the above two-part test: (a) she's clearly not about to break out in lunges at the press conference, and (b) the press meet wasn't taking place at her neighborhood Y. Q.E.D., sweats are not appropriate.

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.
