OMG. Is that a sari?!

The Brits over at the Daily Mail had a very "$hit white girls say to Indian girls" moment recently when they published a photo of Shilpa S. debuting her baby bump in what they dubbed a sari. Hey dummies, just because the wearer is Indian, and the attire is Indian, doesn't mean it's a sari. We do have other types of clothing, you know. Plus, this is just some lazy-ass journalism. Your paper is UK-based. There are desis everywhere. Literally, everywhere. The copy editor could've hollered down the hall, and surely some desi would've set them straight.
Anywho. Shilpa looks fantastic in her anarkali. I love this style so, but it has become such a maternity option that I fear incurring the incessant questions of a 1,000 nosy aunties if I ever step out of the house in one! Photo: getty.

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…
