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.
