I think it is completely understandable that the majority of actors attend the Oscars for the sake of promoting themselves, their movies or just plain ol' face recognition. It's a simple PR tactic really. But I have to say, I don't quite understand why La Rai was floating down the red carpet at the Oscars this year. Honestly, I didn't even know she was there - I didn't even see her lurking in the background as E! interviewed Hollywood celebs. Having been in an Oscar-winning film, and with a slew of international projects in production, I totally get why Freida Pinto would attend the Oscars. She has established her mark on the West and has done an admirable job keeping her name alive with stratgeic magazine shoots, party apperances and the like. Freida has successfully avoided a total fadeout after the Slumdog mania died down. On the other hand, La Rai made a dull thud in Hollywood with the Pink Panther 2 (a film that is languishing in my NetFlix queue), and then all but vanished only to reappear this year at the Oscars. Doesn't. Make. Any. Sense. And not that anyone cares, but Mallika S. was also present. No idea why. Photo: getty.

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…
