x 2: Abhi Baby.

It's not just actresses who get picked apart for repeating entire outfits in short turn, or worse, in the same day. AB Jr. demonstrates that it can happen to actors as well. The thing is, men can usually get away with it. A solid black, charcoal or even navy suit, without embellishments like pinstripes, can totally carry a guy through multiple events, even in the same day. I don't think anybody would bat an eye if AB Jr. wore a solid Armani suit to the Lavasa Women's Race Winners Meet, and then wore the same impeccably tailored suit to the Roopkumar Rathod album launch. I know it's not fair, but there it is. Men can get away with that, while women usually cannot. However, even with that sartorial "free pass," Abhi Baby blows it. Instead of impecabbly tailored Italian wool, he opts for - ugh - a velvet blazer over a jauntily unbuttoned white shirt and grey trousers. This is the opposite of solid black or charcoal. The velvet constitutes embellishment and is therefore immediately recognizable when it is worn again in the span of two events. AB Jr., you can probably learn quite a lot of lessons from your illustrious father. However, a penchant for velvet, is certainly not one of them!

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.
