Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?

Malaika arrived at her sister's sangeet in a gorgeous red Shantanu & Nikhil - umm - bridal lehnga. All that red is quite the bold maneuver, but I fear it detracts from the actual bride who opted for a creme and red lehnga. Wonder if there was a throwdown between the sisters - if so, I'd have to side with Amrita on this one. Malaika's blouse has lovely embroidery, but seeing as it is a tad on the shorter side, we don't get to see much of it. I can't say I'm surprised though - with so much material covering her up in the lehnga, of course she'd pick a teeny tiny blouse. Her makeup is glimmery and not at all OTT, and I love the soft ringlets in her hair. There's no doubt that Malaika - with that perfect bone structure - is quite the stunner. Only thing is, maybe she should have toned down her va va voom hotness for her sister's know the whole don't upstage the bride bit.

Lol, I totally agree with this post. I burst out laughing when I saw Malaika's pics. Also, besides the outfit, can't she EVER tone down the vampiness - like at her sister's wedding?! I understand she has this image to uphold but please!!

It's funny how even in traditional Indian attire, that vampy factor still comes through loud and clear. Clearly, Kohl Girl, it must be an image issue after all...I can think of no other explanation.

I agree... she'd probably be at a loss for what to wear if she couldn't go the skanky route.. Maybe it's a security blanket.. shrugs.

True, Aarti. I guess it is a fashion rut of sorts.

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.
