It's Summertime, and the Living's Easy!

Designer Swapnil Shinde previewed his summer collection at Amara in Kemps Corner. On hand for the occasion, was his apparent muse, Amrita Rao. Either Swapnil Shinde sent over a minion to dress her, or she finally caved and hired herself a stylist. She finally lives up to her beauty by dressing the part! The colorful Fendi clutch plays off nicely with her fab-u metallic gladiators which give an edge to her demure white SS frock. Her low pony with lightly curled ends is an easy go-to look even for us mere mortals! The center part imparts simplicity, while the curls dress it up.Swapnil Shinde showcased summery creations perfect for sweltering Mumbai days. As ideal as Amrita's dress is for a daytime garden party, Urvashi's is suited for a warm night out on the town. Urvashi (also in Swapnil Shinde, natch) wore a blue/purple hued dress with teal accented trim, cut-outs, a bubble hem and creative front panel draping. There's a lot going on with this one; a total opposite in style from Amrita's simple white dress. Fortunately, Urvashi kept her hair, makeup and accessories minimalist so as not to compete unduly with the dress. The platform wrap heels are a fun touch. But from what I can see, I wish she'd left the metallic steel-colored bag in the car.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.
