Last Night’s Parties: Angelina Jolie Pledges $200,000 to Educate Pakistani Girls at the Women in the World SummitApr 5, 2013 @ 4:57 pm
Angelina Jolie (in Saint Laurent), Lauren Bush Lauren, and more came together in support of international women’s rights yesterday at the first day of the 2013 Women in the World Summit, an annual event sponsored by the Women in the World Foundation and held at New York City’s Lincoln Center. The female empowerment event was co-hosted by several powerful ladies, including Daily Beast editor-in-chief Tina Brown (shown with Jolie) and designer Diane von Furstenberg. After an evening filled with inspirational performances and speeches, Jolie closed out the night by pledging $200,000 to the Malala Fund, a Pakistani education initiative started by Malala Youstafzai, the 15-year-old who received international attention after she was shot by the Taliban for her outspoken support of gender equality in education. “They shot her at point blank range and made her stronger,” Jolie said in her speech announcing her support for the Malala Fund. “In a brutal attempt to silence her voice, it grew louder, and she is more resolute.” To learn more about the summit and to live stream the events, head to womenintheworld.org.

This week on Fashion Star I wanted to switch things up and try a menswear-inspired look. This berry-colored suit is from Theory, and I love how the pant is cropped enough to show off the ankle straps on my cobalt Monika Chaing heels! The graphic print shirt underneath pulls out the purple and blue tones from the rest of my outfit; it’s from one of my favorite labels in the whole world, Tibi. Because the look is quite masculine, I kept my hair girly with soft curls, and because I wanted the vibe to be more evening—rather than business formal—I went for a smoky eye. I love this episode. The designers’ creations are super chic!

Halle Berry and fiancé Olivier Martinez are pregnant with their first child together, confirms People magazine! The 46-year-old InStyle cover girl first became pregnant with daughter Nahla in 2007, and we must confess: the star, already impossibly beautiful, became even moreso during her pregnancy. She radiated with so much of that pregnancy glow (right), and we fully expect the same to happen this time around. “I definitely want children,” Halle told InStyle in April 2007, prior to her first pregnancy. “Very much. I want my kids to realize it’s only through hard work that any success or real joy comes. It’s not about money; it’s the intangible rewards—having integrity and doing what you say you’re going to do.” Congrats to the expectant couple!

Red hair is definitely having a moment! On the heels of Dianna Agron‘s shade-swap, Rachel McAdams is the latest star to jump on the crimson hair bandwagon. McAdams’s strands are just as versatile as her many acting roles, but from her blonde Regina George highlights to her Wedding Crashers brunette, auburn hair holds a special place in the star’s heart. “Being a redhead was unique—I felt very Southern,” she told InStyle previously. “I really enjoyed that!” We’re glad she decided to revisit the look! What do you think of Rachel’s new hair? Tell us in the comments!
