Battle of the Basic Black.

The Lakmé Fashion Week post party was heavily attended by celebs clad in basic black. As always, Parameshwar Godrej managed to frighten all (think of the children, Madam G!) in a skin tight creation that is in all likelihood a Hervé Léger (knowing as we do her absurd penchant for HL). I think it's time to be blunt. As a rule, Madam G, if you have to be poured into the dress, you are probably too old to be wearing it and you should just pass it on to the likes of Piggy Chops.Photo Source.
Karishma Tanna failed to impress in her little black ... onsie(?!). Raveena trotted out her standard uniform of black pants + tunic, only this time, she traded in the satin finish for matte and the sparkly sandals for her fave Nine West pair. Designer Babita Malkani seems to have taken a tip from Raveena by arriving in her own black pants + tunic combo. Granted it's a little more visually interesting than Raveena's straight all-black look, but the satin tunic is not at all flattering on her shape. Yeesh. I'd expect a designer to be familiar with the figure flattery concept.Photo Source.Photo Source.Photo Source.
While Sridevi certainly looked lovely in her very polished way, I have to say, her outfit choice was snoozeworthy. While you can't really go wrong with a LBD, the velvet bow seems out of place.I will give her kudos for choosing a very flattering sheath with the perfect length to show off those toned gams. I just wish she'd added a spot of color though.Photo Source.
In the sea of basic black, I think Twinkle came out miles ahead for taking some risks with that major gold hardware paired over a simple black top and dark denims, which she accented with a hardcore clutch. It was fashion week after all, so let's applaud Twinkle for not playing it too safe, and being gutsy enough to stand out in the crowd!Photo Source.

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.
