YBTJ: Sister Showdown.

Shilpa's Diwali party was the venue for a sisterly showdown of sorts. Given that poor Amrita's own wedding events included a bit of sartorial one-upsmanship by sister Malaika, we know that a showdown is never far off when both sisters are under one roof! In this case, neither sister impressed so I regret that I cannot declare a clear winner here.

MAK looks sweet and pretty from the front, but the excessively skimpy choli (which MAK seized every opportunity to flaunt for eager photogs), was a buzz kill IMHO. Call me the Mayoress of Prudeville, but I do wish MAK would exhibit a bit of restraint every once in a while. Being cougarific 24/7 has got to be exhausting!
On the other hand, Amu's floor length velvet number reminds me of a certain drapery dress made famous by one Scarlett O'Hara. That mess of sequins and silver string is reminiscent of what you'd find on drapes, na? And the choice of emeralds on top of all that green velvet is just a waste of beautiful jewels! Maharani Chimnabai of Baroda once wisely advised her daughter Gayatri Devi to "never wear emeralds with a green sari ... they look so much better with pink." Truer words have never been spoken! Amu, rubies would have been a much better choice here! Photos: filmicafe.

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.

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.
