Typical Indian Look.

La Rai opted for a hair and makeup look at the Filmfare Awards that was a total departure from the makeup and hairstyles she sported at the Pink Panther 2 promotions. You could say she decreased the glam quotient slightly without sacrificing drama. Her makeup in Europe focused on a silvery smokey eye with winged liner and lashes out to there. In contrast, at the Filmfare Awards, La Rai opted to emphasize her peepers with desi style kajal-rimmed eyes and just a shimmer of shadow. To that, she added a touch of blush and coral lips. Her hair was also quite different from the teased, high volume 'dos she worked in Europe. Rather than sticking with her trademark soft waves and loose hair, La Rai went for a simple, no frills center part with hair slicked back into a low ambada. I love the effect of the plait wrapped around the ambada. To finish off her look, she added the tiny circular bindi as opposed to some kind of large, garish one. The entire look was sleek, sophisticated, and understated. Which is exactly what you want when you are wearing a heavy duty Sabyasachi sari. Check out the back of her blouse - I love love love it! Classic desi looks suit Aishwarya well. Then again, what doesn't?Photo Credit: BCCL/Shantanu Das.

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.
