Attack of the Killer Bindis.

Ila Arun was back in action at the Chrysalis Fashion Show sporting yet another awful bindi that took up most of her forehead. I personally prefer bindis to be a small accent to one's look as opposed to the only thing somebody can see when looking at you. Maybe it's Madam Ila's secret mind control weapon. Once you look at it, you can't look away. Either that, or she doesn't own a mirror and her family is too frightened of her to take her aside and tell her she needs to downsize. Can you imagine her bindi collection? It's probably larger than other celebrities' shoe closets.Photo Source.

I think its her style statement, may be her signatureline:) even Dolly Thakore and mallika sarabhai and then Usha uthup..all of them have their own styled bindies

Good point, Renu. I guess all of these ladies use mega-bindi creations as their personal statements. I still find them on the scary side!

My sister used to wear a bindi like that. She'd draw her eyebrow pencil over and over in a daggerlike bindi from the bridge of her nose to her hairline. Once she was off that fad, it took several years for the mark on her forehead to eventually disappear.

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.

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
