Rompers Are For Tykes.

[gasp]. I have no words. Well I didn't at first, but now I do, naturally. What the heck happened, Preeti?! Now before we all get carried away, I want to be clear: I am not (I repeat not) getting on Preeti's case for her weight gain. My goss bureau tells me that she and hubs Parvin Dabbas recently welcomed their first child - certainly congrats are in order. Understandably, it took a full nine months to put on that baby weight, so it will take at least that long to lose it; no pressure there as new mammas have quite a lot to deal with minus weight concerns! 

Returning to my message to Preeti: honey, your body is different now post-baby. You cannot flit about in silly little rompers and the like (frankly, you should really leave them to your bebe). There are ways to dress a postpartum body that are both chic and flattering. What you wore to the Sahi Dhande Galat Bande press conference, was neither. I can't imagine this look being flattering on anyone - post-preggers or not! It really looks ridiculous on anyone over the age of say seven. Why? Because unless you are a bean pole, the romper look messes with your proportions and makes you look top heavy. Like you're about to tip over at the gentlest breeze. 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.
