Rumors or Rubbish?

Lolo and Bebo hit the red carpet at the Filmfare Awards together in Manish Malhotra creations. While Lolo looked remarkably svelte and elegant as per ush (again, I am ignoring the apparent absence of a sari blouse all-together), sister Bebo was ... well? What? How do I say this delicately, Kareena? Perhaps it's time you take a cue from your sis (who by the way has had 2 kids) and opt for slightly more opaque sari material in the future?
I don't know which of these plausible explanations is correct:
          a) you are pregnant,
          b) you are not but are trying your hardest to fuel those rumors to help bolster your film, or
          c) you are totally clueless.
Not one to carp about weight issues on this blog, I will say this much: Kareena, if you want to wear the super sheer net saris, you must have a toned structure (and by "structure" I mean tummy). I'm talking a Bipasha-style midriff. Remember how fabulous Bips looked at the G-R reception in her Falguni and Shane number? Here's a look for comparison:
Do you see what I'm saying, Kareena? You risked an unfortunate angle with the result being a photograph like this where you truly do look preggers. Of course if it's answer choice "a" that is correct, then please disregard the above message and God bless!

Even though I'm not a fan of Kareena's blouse, I think it's cool that she is wearing a sheer sari "despite" her not-completely-flat-stomach! In my opinion, sari's are the best option for women who are not size zero :)

And I think size zero women like Bipasha look "hard" or even a little unfeminine with sari's!

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts, Niya. As always, I appreciate hearing differing views :)
Even I think Kareena looks pretty in that sheer net sari.......and as Niya said much more feminine than Bips!

Looks like I might be in the minority on this one ;)

I think the problem with Kareena's saree isn't so much the sheerness of the fabric, as it is the extremely low waist. I think she would look great if she'd draped (tied?) the waist a half-inch below the navel. I definitely agree with you in that to wear such a sheer fabric, so low on the hips requires a Shilpa Shetty-esque midriff.

@Frances I think you are on to something! If you look at how Karisma has tied hers you see it's tied higher. I definitely think the ultra low waist is a big contributor to the problematic appearance for Kareena.

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.
