Coldplay's "Hymn for the Weekend"

Controversy surrounding Beyoncé's appearance aside (follow me on Twitter for a recap), I must say that the video is visually stunning. The cinematography makes me want to jump on a plane and land in Mumbai asap. Lovely!

Ms. Rhea Kapoor did a phenomenal job styling sister Sonam for her beautiful, albeit brief, appearance. Her whole gaon ki gori look is fetching. Check out the close-up details of her blouse - the embroidery is gorgeous.
Queen Bey's look is just...well...over the top. There's no denying the workmanship of the Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla piece. However, the styling screams "exotic, goddess, mystical, mysterious, sensual, eastern blah blah blah". The usual, tired Indian trope. Where is the value added?

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…
