What the What?!

Updated photos!Gorgeous sari, impeccable makeup, but hair teetering on the bouffant. Yep. That about describes La Rai at the Ravana premiere in London. I love the contrast between the rich color of the crushed velvet blouse (also digging the boat neck and long sleeves for a change) with the earth toned raw silk border of her sari. Asides from the poofiness, I'm also not loving La Rai's highlights - a little too light IMHO but way better placement than Bips!
You may wonder at the title of this post - well I'm getting to that now. Gurinder Chadha looks to me like she hurried out the door and "oopsie!" forgot her salwaars. What a cringeworthy mistake that is! If GC wants to dress like a shlub, the last thing she should do is stand next to the almost perfectly clad and coiffed La Rai!

La Rai looks phenomenal. I haven't seen her hair loose/down with these highlights, but they look great up IMO. The up-do + boat neck choli are fitting.

I agree, Shahana! The up-do really sweeps the eye up and works so nicely with that blouse.

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.
