Mid-do and mid-don't

Mid-driff baring tops seem to be ubiquitous this season. It's a fun, fresh trend, but as MAK demonstrates, it is tricky to wear. Malaika wore a Shehlaa by Shehla Khan ensemble on set at "India's Got Talent". Personally, I think her top is a little too cropped. Ideally, an on-trend version should leave a narrow strip of skin exposed; MAK is practically wearing a sari blouse. The exposed mid-driff should be offset by length and some volume on the bottom (think pallazzo pants or a midi-skirt), and not a tight pencil skirt. Additionally, the lace trim on MAK's skirt is overkill when she's got so much exposed up up top.

Deepika's similar Shehlaa design at the Star Guild Awards is an excellent example of how to rock this tricky trend. Here, the exposed mid-driff is well balanced by the proportion of her voluminous skirt.

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…
