Angelina Jolie showed her lighter electrified hair in New York City as she joined Meryl Streep and Barbara Walters at the 2013 Women in the World gala.

The 37-year-old actress attended the event without fiance Brad Pitt, but the mother of six had no problem giving a radiant smile as she wore a loose, olive Saint Laurent dress and a sheer black sheath. Jolie’s hair was much lighter than it usually is.

The actress was on hand for the event to honor Malala Yousafzai, a 15-year-old girl who was shot in Pakistan last October for seeking equal-opportunity education in her country. Jolie has pledged $200,000 to a new fund in her name.

“There’s a lot you can learn from this little girl,” she said during a brief appearance onstage. “This evening is the beginning. Vital Voices, Women in the World and I started the Malala Fund. It’s not a fund in her name, it’s hers and she’ll be in charge of it. So we believe this is a modest beginning for a big dream and we hope that you will join us.”

“The Taliban shot her at point-bank range in the head, and made her stronger,” Jolie said of Yousafzai, who survived the attack. “In a brutal attempt to silence her voice, it grew louder.”

Yousafzai later appeared via video feed at the event, saying “This is the happiest moment of my life . . . If we can educate 40 girls, we can educate 40 million girls.”

Jolie is set to direct a film with the Coen brothers to tell the story of World War II hero Louis Zamperini.
