Fashion Gets Political.

With elections right around the corner in the Desh, I feel it is incumbent upon me - neigh, it is my moral responsibility - to utilize this forum to tackle tough political issues. With that in mind, let's get super serious and give our undivided attention to a matter of utmost concern: what our Bolly-town celebs-turned-politicos are wearing on the campaign trail. To reach the masses, it seems you have to dress like them - simplicity dominates. Cotton saris and simple salwaar suits were in abundance. Hema Madam playfully accessorized with a traditional Assamese hat whilst campaigning in that region. Sallu baba campaigned in the Mumbai heat clad in one of his own designs from his Being Human line. Does simplicity make our Tinseltowners more credible? Photo Credit: AP Photo.Photo Credit: Reuters Pictures.Photo Credit: AP Photo.
Lest this post be perceived as total fluff, here's the political breakdown for the celebs featured here: Sallu baba and Mahima = Congress, Jaya = Samajwadi, and Hema = BJP. There. That's my contribution to the political process dialogue.

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.
