More Mads.

I feel certain La Dixit is up to something big, that an announcement should be forthcoming any day now judging by the spike in number of appearances she's been making of late (not to mention that Vogue cover - more on that later). While she has yet to make a step out of the creme color palette, I like her sari at the Valuable Group Virtual BMC School launch. I love the shimmery lavender and silver blouse and the delicate paisley embroidery on the sari. Her hair seemed a bit flat though. Some volume and maybe a darker shade would really do wonders IMHO.
Although not gaudy like some of her other saris, I did not like her sari at the Food Food media event as much. It is more of her favorite creme/gold color combo though infinitely better than this one. And, I will say that she cuts a smashing figure in the delicate drape! I do like her up do (minus the bangs). We need to get on the phone with Mads' stylist pronto and convince them to dress our fave screen diva in some color for a change!

I really wish La Dixit (love that name!) would go for some La Sabyasachi sometime. Not a fan of her upper middle class aunty from a Delhi party look. She looks good, but like a lot of other rich women in India. Someone who has the money, not style.

OMG Shivani. It really is the "rich society lady" look isn't it? You nailed it! It's true what they say - you can't buy style!

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.
