What caught netizens' attention was Malala's ever-so-gorgeous outfit for the event. Raising elegance to its pinnacle, Malala stepped out dressed in custom Bottega Veneta from head-to-toe.
Thanks to celebrity stylist Dena Neustadter Giannini, the 26-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate looked glamorous and sophisticated in a deep, forest-green dress.
The maxi-length gown sewn in luxurious silk fabric was paired with black, patent leather, crocodile skin, and knee-length boots by the Italian luxury fashion house. With gold-button detailing at the sleeves and wide pleats skirt of the dress, the gown channeled sophistication for the black-tie event.
To complete the look, Malala opted for a matching green modest scarf that highlighted her Hollywood waves hairstyle. The look was accessorized with a gold statement ring and a matching, forest green, signature Bottega Veneta knot minaudière clutch.
The event collected funds to support Afghan organizations in their efforts to provide women in Afghanistan with alternative forms of education and advocate for the reopening of women’s educational institutions amid the Taliban’s ban on women’s education.
