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…

Looking for a DiorShow Extase dupe

Getting 3 kiddos fed, dressed, and out the door on time on school mornings, is challenging on a good day. Between prepping breakfasts, packing lunches, double checking bags for homework, and generally refereeing Big A and S while simultaneously holding or nursing Little A, means I have precious little time to make myself presentable. As a result, mascara has taken the front and center stage of my makeup routine for rushed mornings because who has time to carefully paint on eyeliner?!
1. DiorShow Extase (discontinued) 2. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I was crushed when Dior discontinued their Extase mascara. I adored it. The brush had the perfect shape, and unlike DiorShow or Blackout, this formulation was amenable to multiple, clump-free coats. Unfortunately, none of the current offerings in the Dior mascara lineup feature a similar brush to Extase. IT Cosmetics offered a comparable brush and sounded like it might be a good dupe. On the positive side, the m…

Two Faced Mascara Melt-Off

**UPDATED** We all love mascara that doesn't budge, but who enjoys nightly battles with mascara removal? Not I. Which is why I was excited to give this product a whirl. It promises quick, easy, and effective mascara removal. I simply applied a coat to my lashes using the kind of wand you would expect for lower lash mascaras. I let the product remain on my lashes as I washed my face (approx. two minutes). I used a cotton pad soaked in my favorite eye-makeup remover to gently sweep off the mascara.
The Mascara Melt-Off definitely speeds up the mascara removal process, with significantly less tugging and rubbing of lashes. I felt that the results were a more thorough mascara removal than makeup remover alone.

That said, the directions stated to use a cotton pad to wipe off the mascara; but I found that you most definitely need to soak the pad in your usual remover. Also, I should note that I tested it on non-waterproof mascara. I have no idea how effective it would be in the case of …
