Freida PintoThe partying is already underway at the Oscars even before the first person walked the red carpet.

India Today reports that Slumdog Millionaire Freida Pinto (pictured left) hosted the Vanity Fair pre-Oscar party Friday night for the second year straight. The funds raised support Pinto’s pet cause, Girl Rising.

Among those who joined the festivities were former Miss America Nina Davuluri (pictured right) and Priyanka Chopra.

“It was a wonderful feeling to host the Vanity Fair Pre-Oscar bash in support of Girl Rising for the second time,”Nina Davuluri Pinto was quoted as saying in Indian Express.  It was a spectacular way to draw attention to the Girl Rising- India movement among my peers and the audiences especially since most of the world is clued in because of the prestigious upcoming Oscars. As a producer and ambassador for the Girl Rising movement, I feel so proud to see our baby taking its first steps, to becoming a revolution that aims at giving girls that much required chance to unleash their full potential, one that aims at changing mindsets towards India’s daughters.”
