Sonam Blends Right In.

Yep. You read that right. Sonam Kapoor wore an outrageously colorful Manish Arora dress (I believe from his Spring/Summer '08 collection), and paired said dress with hot pink pumps and a neon orange B. Romanek "Rock Star" clutch, and I said she blended right into the crowd .... after the Zaia Cirque du Soleil Show where celebs hobnobbed with the Cirque's equally colorful performers. Sonam's dress features Arora's trademark quirky style, and I believe she pulls it off with aplomb. Sonam doesn't let the riot of color, bold mirror-work, or slightly boxy shape of the dress overwhelm her. Instead, she opts for low key makeup and loose and unstructured hair to offset the Arora design. I love that she sticks to the dresses bright hued palette without getting all matchy matchy with her accessories. Speaking of quirky, let's not forget that singers M.I.A., Katy Perry and Lady Gaga count themselves as fans of Arora's designs.Photo Credit: Reuters Pictures.

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.
