It is easy to follow what others do as long as talent is not involved. Karishma Manandhar‘s beauty is envied by every other actresses in Nepali movie industry and it is not much surprising if an aspiring actress follows her steps.
In Indian model is in dilemma whether to keep her promise or not amidst increasing pressure from her fans (asking her to keep her promise), criticism, and even the looming threat of moral policing from Shiva Sena.
19 year old model Poonam Pandey had promised to bare all if the Indian national team wins the World Cup 2011. Her wish has come true, and her fans are drooling to get a glimpse of her ‘promise’.
Poonam, a 5’7" tall model, featured in India’s best-selling swimwear calendar, had said previously that she wanted to provide an incentive to the Indian team players by baring all. It is not known if her offer will be welcomed or not.
Although Poonam says that she is a diehard supporter of Indian team and it was not a publicity stunt, the widespread media attention has been no less than one. The Times of India featured a photograph of Poonam wearing a skimpy bikini.
American pop singer-songwriter Lady Gaga has revealed her sex life in the new issue of Grazia magazine of Britain. She has revealed that she lost her virginity when she was a teenager, at the age of 17. She however told that the first experience was ”terrible” and added that she wasn’t fully prepared for sex at that time.
Lady Gaga is popular for her "unique" fashion sense with odd costumes and accessories.
The Mr. Nepal 2011 contest took place in Kathmandu on the February 26, 2011. The judging panel comprising of actors and actress Raj Ballav Koirala, Rekha Thapa, Jiwan Luitel among others choose Dr Rupak Ghimire the Mr. Nepal of 2011.
Sonali Bendre’s wardrobe malfunction during the Karan Johar’s party at the Four Seasons Hotel is the hottest topic of discussion these days. Although Bendre’s spokesperson has denied the rumor it is not going to subside soon.
There have been numerous such incidents in Bollywood the past. Let’s see the top 5 of such embarrassing moment (sometimes the viewers are more embarrassed than the celebrity involved).
1. Yana Gupta
This was the hottest incident of 2010. Yana Gupta surprised everybody in a children’s charity event by showing up without her panties. She admitted her mistake but she also added that it was not a big deal.
NOTE: This post is an introduction to the woolen product Sunita Giri designs and sells. She has promised to give one to the winner of the Eye Contest, if the person resides in Kathmandu (the winner should collect it in person from her).
- It can be worn on neck to protect from wind chill.
- It helps in holding hair (specially long ones) in place.
- It can can also protect head and ears from chilling winds.
- Some use it inside helmet when driving bikes, as a cushion for head and ears.
- It can also be used as a fashion apparel.
In the Miss World modeling round, the audience clearly gasp and applaud when Miss Nepal 2010, Sadichha Shrestha, opened up her peacock feathered dress (skip to 1:30 in the video below to see it for yourselves).
The dress was made out of Allo from Taplejung district in Nepal with peacock feathers attached to it. The designer of the dress are Uttam Banepali and Shiba Shrestha of Uttam Creations, Kupondole. The dress weighing 6 kg took 5 workers for 15 days to finish.
After the threat to sue the modeling website cybersansar.com, model turned actress Poojana Pradhan’s photos were removed from the website. Poojana has told that the website is misusing the photos.
The photos in question were shot in bikini in the banks of Narayani river. The hot photos are considered to be the ones that established her in the modeling and eventually as an actress. While talking about the signature photos she told that – they were good enough to start with but now, as a established actress she can’t afford to have such bikini clad photos around.
The British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that female models should be around 34-24-34 in (86-61-86 cm) and at least 5 ft 8 in (1.73 m) tall.
How many of the Nepali models are taller than 5 ft 8 in ? I suspect none.
Wikipedia defines a model as ‘a person who is employed for the purpose of displaying and promoting fashion clothing or other products and for advertising or promotional purposes or who poses for works of art.’
- How many of them are posing for ‘works of art’? Probably, none.
- How many of the internet models are ‘promoting fashion clothing’ or other product ? A very small number of them, I believe.
Some of you might say that the definition of model, in this digital age, is changed. I agree, and I also believe so. But, there is still something amiss, odd, or awkward on the way our modeling industry is shaping up. I have lost track of the beauty contests, being held every other day — and I won’t be writing about them anymore unless they are ‘big enough’ like Miss Nepal. These ‘model manufacturing’ contests might be one of the reason there are so many models around.
When you can’t fit it in the traditional definition, you should redefine term itself so that, everybody fits in it. Then, what is the definition of Nepali version of Model ?
The shortest man in the world, Khagendra Thapa Magar and top three Miss Nepal contest winners including Miss Nepal 2010, Sadichha Shrestha, first runner-up Sahana Bajracharya, and second runner-up Sanyukta Timsina were chosen the Goodwill Ambassadors of Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) for the promotion of tourism in Nepal.
Khagendra’s theme message reads: "Shortest man in the world from the highest mountain in the world invites you to visit Nepal."
Miss Nepal Sadichha was appointed the Brand Ambassador of Nepal Tourism Year 2011 (NTY-2011) in the first week of September. She is also the conservation ambassador of World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Nepal.
More photos of Khagendra with the beauty queens follows (photo credits – onlinekhabar, nepalnews, and nagariknews):
Do you remember the photo of Karishma Manandhar in which she shows her panties – the black one on brown dress ?
Seems like, after seeing the photo published in web, she realized the bad combination – black panties on brown dress!
After the incident, she might have decided to try on a better combination.. How about a red panties on black skirts?
Kantipur didn’t know when Miss Nepal 2010 was held (at least its loyal readers don’t). Last time, I questioned their loyalty to their readers and specifically asked for their explanation. I wrote emails to the kantipur officials, with the links to those posts about Miss Nepal and Kantipur. But, they played deaf (attached email screenshot), yet again! It was not the first time I didn’t get a reply from them. Last time, when I wrote about Smita Thapa and Maya Bazin, my emails didn’t get any reply.
A hat-trick of no replies is enough to prove that that the Kantipur officials are self-centered, short-sighted, and don’t know their responsibilities.
This is the live recording of Miss Nepal 2010 program broadcasted in Nepal TV.
The photos and details of the event is posted in Miss Nepal 2010 news posting.
Sadichha Shrestha, 19, has become this year’s Miss Nepal. Contestant no. 1 Sadichha was crowned the Darbur Special Hidden Treasure Miss Nepal 2010 during a special program held at Tribhuwan Army Officers Club, Bhadrakali, Kathmandu on Sept. 1, 2010.
Look at the following dance steps and guess what might be the program the dance has taken place in! The girl in 2-piece dress and net-stockings is Nepali actress Subekchhya Thapa.
One clue – it is a fashion event – as you might have guessed. But, be prepared to get surprised!
