AdWatch: Piggy Chops for GUESS

This girl is everywhere! With a major Bollywood film release in Krrrish 3, and nonstop PR appearances to promote the film, Piggy Chops must have a caffeine IV drip as she is equally busy on this side of the pond. First she generated buzz for signing with an American record label, she collaborated with and Pitbull releasing successful singles, she did a related bit of promo work for the NFL, and even provided the voice for the character of Ishani in the Planes movie. Now this last one is a big deal in my home. When you have two baby boys, one of whom adores the Cars and Planes franchises, and you can take them to a theater and point to an Indian main character that is not some laughable caricature or Indian but not portrayed by an Indian (I'm looking at you, Disney's 1994 live-action Jungle Book), it is a big freaking deal. But ... I digress. Piggy Chops is busy racking up yet another first! GUESS has recently announced PC as its latest Guess Girl, adding her to a long line of famous beauties like Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima. The ads featuring Priyanka were shot by Bryan Adams. Per the Huff Post and E! News, GUESS's Paul Marciano felt Priyanka was a modern-day Sophia Loren (the mega oomph hair and cat eyeliner featured in the ads do seem to pay homage to the screen siren). The first desi model for this global brand - way to go PC!

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…

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.

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.
