International Day of the Girl

Michelle Obama, Frieda Pinto,  Jennifer Hudson,  Karlie Kloss, Zendaya Coleman and young women from all over the world attended the concert on NBC’s Today, held on Thursday morning, October 11, in New York City, to honor International Day of the Girl, founded in 2012 by the United Nations, to raise awareness of the needs and important issues girls face across the globe due to gender inequity, including equal access to education, work training, legal standing, medical care and much more.

The former first lady Michelle Obama kept things simple and elegant in a white wrap Rachel Comey dress as a symbol of hope and female empowerment. She reflected on the #MeToo movement, which she says has shown what a “dangerous place” the world still is for women and girls, and emphasized the need to keep on fighting the good fight—the long and storied fight—for gender equality.

She may no longer be in politics but she is still willing to fight rights as she announced her new Global Girls Alliance to support adolescent girls’ education. The initiative coinciding with the day dedicated to addressing gender inequality and empowering young women will support more than 1,500 grassroots organizations around the world to take action to help girls overcome the challenges they face in their local communities, such as limited access to education and resources, or being married before turning 18.

Karlie Kloss was in attendance wearing a hot pink Brandon Maxwell Spring 2019 dress that accentuated her silhouette and had flutter sleeve design.

Zendaya Coleman, ever so stylish,  kept things effortlessly chic in a hot pink Sally LaPointe Spring 2019 cashmere tee and trouser shorts paired with white Christian Louboutin pumps.
