Sequin Good, and Sequin Bad.

It's the Indian film industry's annual self-love fest! That's right: it's IIFA time. This year, the festivities took place in Toronto, and the usual who's who of Bollywood were in attendance. I'm assuming due to Aishwarya's pregnancy, the Bachchan clan was noticeably absent. Shilpa S. made a splashy reappearance on a filmi red carpet in her sequined number. She chose a splash of hot pink to accessorize all that black. And to prove what a seasoned vet she is of the red carpet, there's a lot going on with that spangled necklace, so she wisely skipped the earrings. Love the loose waves, love the smokey eye, and love that final pop of pink: bubblegum for the lips!
Update: how badass is she? Homegirl boogied on stage in this gown! Talk about oozing confidence. It may sound cliche, but it really is the best accessory, na? 
On the flip side, celebspawn Sonakshi, showed up in a disco ball look that just fell flat. I think it really comes down to those 3/4 sleeves and the tent-like volume of the gown. IMHO, they really just put her gown into sequined overload whereas Shilpa's strapless, body-skimming number hit it just right. Sonakshi's flamenco dancer-inspired hair fails to wow. It's like her stylist gave up and just slicked it back out of frustration. I dunno, she always looks like she's just trying too hard. I would love to see her branch out and establish her own, individual style mark.

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…
