Hit and Miss.

As promised, let the wedding guest snarkery commence! Let's start with the bad so we can end positively with the good. Overall, I dislike Mads' chudidaar kurta. There. I said it. The kurta and odhni don't really complement the shade of the chudidaar which is a shame because that color is really pretty. All that silver beaded neck work is just plain distracting. Her choice of silver sandals and tomato red toes are a jarring mistake. And finally, her foundation shade and consistency seem to be off and her hair is just a total pffft. Sadness. Next up, Juhi. I am not a fan of her look at all - nothing about it works. The embroidered panels on her kurta too-closely resemble pillow cushions. Apart from that, the colors are a mish mash (let's see, there's white and black, gold, hot pink, and red-pink), and the style of the outfit screams '80s. Also, sheer chudidaars are fine, but I feel these are a little too sheer? Amisha, as always, is inappropriately dressed for the formality of the function she is attending. Her tight-fitting ... what (calling it a gown would lend the attire more elegance than it deserves) would have been more suitable for the Cosmo Awards. Deepika's pale pink chikan suit is a tad underwhelming. But I must say that her hair and makeup are flawless. Now for the hits! Piggy Chops nailed the chudidaar kurta look. I like her elegant odhni drape. She looks phenomenal and I am loving those ruby drop earrings - nice touch! Genelia really works that bold red sari by wisely pairing it with low key accessories and makeup. Absolutely smashing! Photos: bollywoodhungama

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.
