UN Foundation Global Leadership Awards Dinner

Seriously. Have I said before that Piggy Chops seems to be everywhere all at once? She just recently popped up at this awards dinner benefiting the Foundation's Global Classrooms Model United Nations Program. And you know what? PC wasn't the "celebrity" that made me most star struck. That would be  the ever-elegant Queen Rania of Jordan. She radiates intelligence, beauty, and loads of grace. And she is quite the champion of human (specifically women's) rights. Can you tell I am a huge fan? I'm just thrilled to finally have an on-topic reason to mention HM on desipolitan! The Danes have Princess Mary, and the Brits have the Duchess of Cambridge, but Queen Rania has been on the scene longest. Sidebar: these three ladies comprise my list of most fashionable royals.

Back to the matter at hand. I wish PC had opted for a darker, non-strapless number a la Queen R. Priyanka's choice just seems to fall flat, and lacks the gravitas for a fundraising dinner such as this. Not digging those bangs either. Here's another pic of PC from the event. The dress just seems like it'd have been more appropriate for an entertainment-industry bash rather than this particular event.

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…
