Pakistani female education activist and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai on Monday made her first debut appearance at the Oscars along with her husband, Asser Malik.
The activist attended the event while wearing a sequin-covered hooded gown by Ralph Lauren. The silver-colored dress had long sleeves and cinched detail on one side of the waist.
The highlight of Malala’s dress was her accessories. Keeping it simple, the 25-year-old paired her dress with pendant earrings in platinum, a silver diamond ring, and a gold ring. She wore minimal makeup and completed her look with a pop of red on her lips.
Additionally, her earrings were significant as it dates back to Soraya Tarzi, the first queen of Afghanistan in the 1930s, who was also an advocate for women’s rights and education in the country.
Meanwhile, her husband Asser Malik looked stunning in a black tuxedo with a white shirt, bow tie, and black loafers.
Taking to Instagram, Malala said that she wanted her dress to represent the message of her film Stranger at the Gate and embody hope.
“It was all a dream I wanted my dress to represent the message of our film @strangeratthegate and embody hope. Thank you so much to the brilliant team that helped bring my vision to life,” wrote the activist.
Remember that Malala’s Oscars debut was not just for fashion and style, as she was also an executive producer of the short film Stranger at the Gate, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary.
Malala’s appearance at the Oscars was another significant milestone for the activist, who has continuously used her platform to advocate for education and women’s rights worldwide.
