Priyanka hits up the Golden Globes

Update: the reason there are no red carpet photos of PC is because she didn't attend the Golden Globes as previously thought. Sorry, photogs, for the rant on not recognizing PC. Totally unfair. You can't recognize her if she's not there.
 
Blink and you missed it, but PC apparently hit up the party circuit as well as the main event. Our girl didn't exactly set media shutterbugs atwitter - likely because she's not (yet) a recognizable desi face on this side of the pond. At present, that position is solely staked out by one Freida Pinto. I, for one, had no idea she was in attendance until I saw a @MadhuriDixit tweet that clued me in. Anywho, PC pre-partied in an almost body-con Burberry number. The most notable elements of her look were her updo and cut-out heels. The former, I applaud. The latter, well, I'm not a fan. They remind me of tacky sandals one would have seen on Sri back in the '80s. I wish she'd gone for a strappy, metallic sandal or a peep toe pump.

Her dress for the actual Golden Globes was far more memorable. She wore a gunmetal grey Bibhu Mohapatra midi dress complete with voluminous tulle, loads of sequins, and a snazzy cut-out bodice. The slightly heavy-handed application of sequins aside, this dress makes a statement. When our journos finally figure out who she is, this is the kind of dress Team PC would want splashed across dailies, People.com homepages, and the like. Sadly, the boring ol' office pumps are way out of place here. But all in all, bold choices, and I'm hoping we'll be seeing more of PC Stateside.

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.
