Shaadi Story.

The guest list at the wedding reception of Manish Tiwari and Payal Gidwani, yoga pros to the stars, was a veritable who's who of Bollywood's svelte celebs. Held at the ITC Grand Maratha, it was certainly a glitzy affair. The bride wore a heavy duty Seema Roy "dhoopchhau" hot pink lehnga paired with Roopa Vohra jewels.Sridevi departed from your typical Indian wedding attire (read: panoply of color) in a gunmetal grey sari. The sari color was definitely unusual, but it wasn't gaudy and as always, Sri wore it well. I particularly loved the ombre effect on the sari which was heightened by those oh-so-perfect pleats. She chose to add a pop of color to her sober sari with rubies in her delicate diamond necklace. Great choice! A not so great choice was her cream and gold Rodo clutch. While I love the clutch, I couldn't help but thinking it would have looked much better paired with countless other saris we've seen Sri wear. But that said, her hair was flawless, makeup, impeccable, and jewels, superb!Tulip Joshi, was certainly on the guest list, but appeared to be more of a wedding crasher. Her printed mini gives her the appearance of accidentally stumbling into a glitzy wedding reception. Also, her rather half-awake facial expression adds to that amusing effect.The fugliest sari award (you know there can't be a desi shaadi without this award!) clearly goes to Neha Oberoi. There is just too much going on here: fluorescent colors, massive embroidery, unkempt hair and bright orange nail polish to boot. On the other hand, Kunika was every inch the lady in her gold, silk sari.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.
