Double Take.

NeNe appears to be experimenting with hair and makeup lately. At the record launch for the film From Gandhi to Hitler (no idea what that's all about but I am imagining a ridiculous musical extravaganza involving goose stepping and dhotis), she opted for the smokiest of smokey lids with heavily kohl lined eyes. Some might say it's too much, bordering on the raccoon-like even. I disagree. I think it is totally deliberate. Even stars have to rush out of the house sometimes, and it looks like NeNe didn't have time to blow out and style her hair - hence the slicked back hair with a rough dried pony tail. The hair is simple and effective in a pinch, and the mega eye makeup serves to distract from that simplicity. Do I think it was absolutely necessary? No. Did it hurt her look? I don't think so.
I think she had less success at a promotional event for Seagram's Blenders Pride Magical Nights fashion tour (booze + fashion = fun), her slightly sloppy up do was nothing magical. But the biggest issue here was the fact that her makeup looks like it is melting right off her face. As for the eye makeup, the smudged kohl and heavy mascara reliance lend credence to the melting makeup theory. A crisp, precise winged line would have anchored her look much better.

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.
