Belly Couture.

Manyata Dutt recently had a baby shower thrown in her honor. Judging by the perfusion of the color pink at the event, I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the Dutts are expecting a little girl. Congrats of course are in order for the mamma and pappa-to-be. However, it appears Manyata was bent upon doing everything in her power to counteract the lovely glow of pregnancy: enter pale pink lipstick and that mumu of a gown. Seriously. Was she shopping from the Barbie line of maternity/evening wear? And that ghastly lipstick was an epic fail! Photo: getty
Mrs. D should really pick up a thing or do from Karisma K. who managed to maintain her chic style throughout her second pregnancy. Here she is rocking a chudidaar kurta several months ago. Photo: ndtv/viral bhayani
Here's a more recent pic of the fabulous Karisma at a promotional event for Dabang where I am going to guess that she is still wearing a suit from her preggo days (hell with cute maternity wear like her's, who wouldn't want to keep wearing it post pregnancy?). The key is, it's fitted in all the right places, but also has plenty of give in the belly area. Take it from someone who knows, while the last thing you want while preggo is to be uncomfortable, you also do not want to lose all semblance of style! Photo: getty

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…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

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 …
