Shaadi Story: Ahana and Vaibhav's reception

Here's your first look at the lovely bride! I've got to say, out of her mehendi, sangeet, and reception outfits, this is definitely my least favorite. But more on that later (as better photos emerge). This post is about Madam Re. Naturally she stuck by her standard uniform of a classic kanjivaram. She'll get not darts from me on that front. She's got an enviable collection doesn't she? My concern here, is the makeup. It simply is not flattering. And she is gorgeous. So that says a lot in and of itself. Simply put, as we age, we want to look for dewy, luminous makeup. Just a hint of shimmer to soften and blur fine lines, wrinkles, etc. What we should avoid like the plague, is matte, pancake makeup. It is so harsh, and a big-time skin ager in my opinion.

Obviously the flash of the camera doesn't do her any favors. But whether celebrity or not, we all know cameras are a-clickin' at wedding functions, and we must therefore alter our makeup routine as necessary. A photo snapped at Ahana's mehendi party shows us just why we must beware of the flash! And also, blend, blend, blend!!

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.
