YBTJ: LWD Edition.

That's Little White Dress. I think this round clearly belongs to Dia. I like the sweet eyelet shift. It doesn't veer into cutesy territory because the short hemline balances that tendency of such dresses. The nude, platform peep-toes lend that extra level of oomph. Minimalist makeup and easy wavy hair complete her look at the music launch for Love Breakups Zindagi.
Regrettably, I think Sonam's look while promoting Mausam in Mumbai, fell flat. I do want to go on the record as saying I don't think it's entirely her (or her stylist's) fault. She was probably contractually obligated (like Kit Kat) to wear flats while promoting her film so as not to tower over Shahid (why oh why are Bolly actors' egos so delicate?). That said, the dress itself was too bulky and shapeless to be at all attractive. Long sleeves should be paired with a shorter hemline. And I don't understand what sort of material this is - is it lace? The closeup of the fabric actually reminds me of those snowflakes you used to cut out of a sheet of paper as kids. Great for Christmas decorations, bad for dress material.

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.
