Dynamite or Disastrous Duos?

The GQ Men of the Year 2009 awards show provided ample opportunity for a celeb spotting snarkfest (love it!). Let's get right to it then. First up, Lara D was pretty in pink in a floor length number. She kept her hair, makeup and accessories on the subtle side which was a smart move given the in-your-face color of her gown. Kudos, LD. Meanwhile, Abhay Deol was a top down disaster. He looked nice enough on top, but he was a downright disaster on the bottom.
Next up, Saifu and lady love, Bebo. Again with those blasted glasses, Saif should leave the sleek hair looks to the ladies. He totally ruined his overall appearance with that way too greasy hair do. Bebo looked quite fetching. Again, same rule as LD: flashy dress paired with subtle everything else. I'm still looking for a full length pic of her dress.
Finally, TMFCITW: Aishwaryashek. Abhi baby needs to get a clue or at least wifey dearest needs to stage an intervention for him. Man cleavage accentuated with man jewelry plus a shiny suit and you have a Bachchan Jr. fiasco. Aish didn't fare much better. Her matte burgandy dress (she could have borrowed some of the sheen from AB) was a little drab and not at all flattering at the bust.

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.

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
