A little bit royal, a little bit Hollywood:

--Another update on the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: The couple will invite 2,640 people into the grounds of Windsor Castle to watch the arrivals and the carriage procession. The number breaks down like so:

--Let's cut to some Oscars glitz, because gazing at pretty gowns and mega jewels is all I really feel like doing with my Monday anyway. My award for best jewels at last night's Academy Awards: Helen Mirren, with $3.8 million of Harry Winston pretties including that 115.27 carat cushion-cut sapphire and diamond necklace, my goodness. (Click through the pictures in this Instagram post, there's one of the necklace alone.) Honorary mention: Gal Gadot serving up shades of the Dutch aquamarine necklace in Tiffany. [Vogue]

And my award for best dress: Allison Janney in Reem Acra, proving once again that a killer red dress is always the best choice.
