Shaadi Story: Shefali Weds Abhishek.

Referred to by media outlets only as "Dr. Shefali" and "Dr. Abhishek" - I wondered what all the fuss was about. Usually celeb weddings are heralded with trumpeters and the like, but we always know who the bride and groom are (i.e. La Rai and Abhi baby). This go around, I was stumped. Who were Dr. S and Dr. A? And what about them drew several celebs to their wedding festivities? Well the answer, my dears, is not so much who they are, but who Shefali's mum is: evidently, she is renowned dermatologist Srilata Trasi who serves as dermie to the stars (she has 3 popular clinics in Mumbai located in Khar, Andheri and Dadar, in case anyone's interested). Hence the smattering of Bollytown's finest at the wedding of her daughter. Dr. Trasi's clients must love her - her web site made me chuckle as it invitingly states that with the help of Dr. Trasi, "aspiring models, airhostess[sic] ... established senior Bollywood ...personalities ... maintain and rejuvenate to their younger, fresher looks."

Anywho, now that little mystery is cleared up, here's the obligatory look at the newlweds (in case you hadn't figured out from the media's highly clever references, both are doctors): Shefali Trasi and Abhishek Nerurkar. Stealing the spotlight from Shefali was the lovely Sush at her mehndi (more on that later), and none other than the usually fabulous Mads at the reception. I say usually, because boy was I disappointed in her whole look. The feathered hair was boring teetering on sloppy, and that too light brown hair color is not doing her any favors. But the sari. God the sari. Awful. Blinged out and bleige (blah + beige). And that blouse is causing her to look a whole lot like Divya Dutta. Yes. It is that bad.

Also in attendance was Sonali Kulkarni. I couldn't find much wrong with Sonali's attire here (other than the fact that she rummaged in the back of her closet to dig out her oldest suit for the occasion), until I saw her choice of footwear. Flip flops. Are you freaking kidding me?! If this isn't a top-down disaster, I don't know what is. Horrendous.

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.
