Why Ruin a Good Thing?

When I travel to Jodhpur, I love going to the fabric stores to pick up bandhani and leheriya material. Last time, I picked out 3 beautiful pieces of this material with the intention that I'd have them stitched into saadha suits because the beauty of the fabric itself was enough embellishment. I regret to inform you that my material was viciously attacked by a sequin-crazed seamstress in Delhi. Suffice it to say, she ruined all 3 pieces with her overzealousness. Anyhoo....coming to the point (you knew I'd eventually make it), one look at Divya at the Vighnaharta Shree Siddhininayak promotion and I started having traumatic flashbacks to the day I went to the shop to pick up my suits.Since Divya's bandhani sari is already an intense, color soaked orange, she could certainly have done without the large sequined embellishments. The bandhani design alone is plenty of embellishment - you really don't need more! All they do is ruin the simple beauty of the handloom. Oh, and by the way, I'm not a fan of those pseudo-trendy bangs Divya's been sporting of late. That's one trend gone horribly wrong. Also, it appears that Divya's copying our one and only Kajal Queen with her heavy handed reverse lining a la Bebo. I'm not a huge fan of it at baseline, but if it's applied with a lighter touch, it wouldn't be as racoon-like and jarring. This is plainly unattractive in my opinion.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…

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.

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.
