Best of the Best @ Bappa Lahiri Reception

Hot damn, Kiran Rao. This is the most amazing I've ever
seen you look! Everything is flawless: the sari, the drape,
the jewelry.
Shraddha works the mustard and peachy-pink combo.
For a tutorial on how not to wear mustard, please
refer to the Lahiri family shot below.
Understated Kajol at her pastel and pale gold best.
The loose, side braid and neutral makeup complement
her look without overpowering. Kudos!
Cousin Rani was not to be outdone by Kajol. 
Jaya P. stepped it up, and Poonam is quite elegant.
OK, so you wouldn't know that these two are at a wedding reception
based on those frowning mugs, but facial expression aside, Padmini's sari
is stunning I'm not a fan of the strapless anarkali that Tejaswini's sporting,
but the colors are lovely.
These next couple of snaps don't actually belong in any BOB recap, however for the ease of writing it up, here they are.
I guess her rather garish attire is indicative of Taneesha's officially becoming
a Lahiri. Gah. Brides are supposed to be the center of attention, but in a
good way. Her rust sari next to the eyesores that are the kurtas worn
by hubs and FIL, and mere steps away from that haldi bath that is her MIL,
is all very Lahiri isn't it? Plus, there's so much yellow gold bling going on.
It's not that AB Sr. looks sloppy, but I do bemoan
 the return of the velvet blazer.

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.
