Cannes-tastic!

This is the first part of a three part series featuring Bollywood leading ladies who made appearances at the Cannes Film Festival. First up, naturally, is La Rai who was a veritable whirlwind at Cannes making so many appearances she made my head spin. Overall, I enjoyed her selection of gowns - each one markedly different from the others in style and color, but all of them quite flattering. Even her more casual daytime looks were spot on in terms of nailing the breezy vibe of Cannes. My only gripe was her massive beehive hair at the Robin Hood premiere ... seriously, what was up with that?!
Also, at the the Raavan photocall, La Rai was effortlessly chic in black with lovely tousled waves. However, I take issue with her accessorizing: namely in her arm candy, hubbie Abhi. Why she let him step out in a too-snug, semi-cropped red leather jacket and bloody too-short denims, is beyond me. Horrendous.
She did rectify this gaffe in a subsequent outing with AB Jr. fitted in a classy tux!

seriously AB day outfit was horrendous.. why would he wear such a thing? Don't these people have a personal stylist or somebody who advises them on what suits them..

But I guess the post is on Ash, she looked stunning for her age in all her dresses.

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.
