Pride of Pakistan, the magnificent Malala Yousafzai made her Oscar debut with her husband, Aseer Malik. Scroll down more complete details.
The Dream Look
The 25-year-old Pakistani activist looked magical as she wore a hooded silver sequinned gown by Ralph Lauren with long sleeves and a floor-length skirt. The Nobel Prize laureate accessorised with a silver diamond ring and a gold ring with an emerald flower from Santi Jewels. Her husband too rocked in a black tuxedo paired with a white shirt.
Malala took to social media to give us an insight about the glorious event. She wrote, “It was all a dream,” Malala shared on Instagram as she posted a carousel of pictures from the Academy Awards 2023. The renowned activist went on to divulge her Ralph Lauren number, and surely it represented a cause close to her. “I wanted my dress to represent the message of our film, Stranger at the Gate, and embody hope. Thank you so much to the brilliant team that helped bring my vision to life.”

Peace Talk Only
Malala was approached by the host of the night Jimmy Kimmel. The host became the butt of the jokes after he approached the producer during a break in proceedings and asked her an awkward question about Harry Styles and Chris Pine’s ‘spit-gate’ drama.

As the youngest Nobel Prize winner in history… I was wondering, do you think Harry Styles spit on Chris Pine?” The Oxford graduate literally created a mic drop moment, saying “I only talk about peace.” As the clip went viral, netizens go gaga over her witty yet firm response.
For the unversed, Malala Yousafzai was the executive producer of Stranger at the Gate, which was nominated for Best Documentary Short Film at the Oscars. The film follows the story of a former US Marine planning a terrorist attack on a mosque in Muncie, Indiana, but changes his mind after finding himself welcomed by the community.
