Upstaged Bride?

As fabulous as it must have been for Shefali to rub elbows with her mum's celeb clients, I wonder if she wasn't a bit miffed at all the attention they attracted on her big day. Despite her questionable attire, Mads hogged the limelight (not intentionally, of course) at Shefali's reception, and there is no question that the same happened when stunning Sush glided into the room at the mehndi. As with Mads, Sush has beauty and charisma oozing out of every pore (ha ha like my dermie reference?). I can't say enough how much I love the color (particularly all the pink) we've seen on Sush of late. Her suit at the mehndi was breezy yet elegant. And as if all eyes didn't focus on her right away, the pink dupatta definitely caught attention. Sush had neutral, low key makeup with kohl lined eyes (classic!), which paired nicely with her trademark shiny black hair. I love the gold and silver necklace she's sporting (can't quite tell if it is one necklace looped around, or two worn together). Only quibble: I like the flat sandal, but a dressier pair would have been better.
Though not quite in the same sphere as Sush, a couple of semi-famous and well dressed ladies rounded out the celeb quotient that mama Srilata rounded up for her beti's mehndi: Farah also kept hair/makeup low key as her saturated purple suit did all the talking. But since she is a jewelry designer herself, she added a fantastic pair of gold chandaliers but wisely limited her jewelry to the statement earrings.
Perhaps a colleague of Srilata's, Dr. Jamuna Pai was lovely in red. She opted for bold color and coordinating accessories but kept her makeup classic rather than matchy. Photos: wedding sutra, 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.
