Eight wins later, it looks like we have our answer! Truly the darlings of this year's Oscars, the cast and crew took home top awards including best picture, best director for Danny Boyle, and best original score for A.R. Rahman. Updated Photos:Photo Credit: Getty Images.Photo Credit: Getty Images.
Rahman (not Ra-ch-man) made history tonight by winning two awards: best original score, and best original song for Jai Ho which he composed along with lyrics by Gulzar. Previously, only two Indians have received an Oscar: Bhanu Athaiya for costume design for the film Gandhi, and Satyajit Ray for lifetime achievement. A.R. Rahman and his troupe's live performance of both O Saaya and Jai Ho was energetic and effervescent. Flashing her megawatt smile, Freida was both classic and glamorous in her one-sleeved gown by John Galliano paired with Jimmy Choo "Private" platforms. Freida balanced out the rich blue hue of her gown with low key but sophisticated hair and makeup and just the right amount of bling. Her ring was by Martin Katz, and her clutch, a Judith Leiber.Young Dev matched up to his glamorous co-star in a custom-tailored Burberry tuxedo. Alongside Anil's obvious exuberance as he air pumped the Oscar for best picture, both Freida and Dev looked to be really taking it all in and enjoying every moment.Photo Credit: Just Jared.

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…

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.

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.
