It Don't Matter If You're Black Or White...

Sorry if you now have MJ playing on repeat in your heads. My bad. I couldn't help it though after glancing at Deepika's sari at the Mumbai premiere of Aarakshan (or what remains of it following Prakash Jha's appropriate forced cuts). First off, I am pleased to see that Deepika abandoned that teased hair style that she's been sporting to all Aarakshan events. It's not like Soha where the style was not flattering, it was. It just got a tad boring after a couple of back-to-back appearances. Maybe the 'do was character-related. Who knows?
On to the sari. I love the black/white color combo and the mega-detailing at the neckline is absolutely gorge. Only thing that puzzles me is the full length sleeves on this blouse - it looks more like the sleeves of a long-sleeved tee. I've got nothing against full length sleeves - Sonakshi previously nailed this look. But something is wrong with the construction here. Plus, the long sleeves combined with a super short blouse make it appear disproportionate. If we could gain just a smidge of length on the blouse and lose a little on the sleeves, I think it'd be perfect. Photos: getty.

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.
