Claire Danes is florally fabulous at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo!

Flower Powerrrr!!!!

Claire Danes was fresh as as daisy, pretty as a peony, snappy as a snapdragon, and MUCH much more at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo on Wednesday!

She rocked a flower-strewn Valentino macramé gown on stage, and made sure not to overload the busy pattern with froofy hair, makeup, or jewelry.

The actress wore a few subtle silver charms, completing the look with pulled-back tresses.

Jon Stewart Left Speechless By 16-Year Old Nobel Peace Prize Candidate!

Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsInspiration

Malala Yousafzai is an extremely active advocate for women's education, she's survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban, she was a Nobel Peace Prize candidate…

…and she's only 16 years old!

Now, she can add "Interviewed with Jon Stewart" to her impressive resume, although Jon made it very clear that if anyone was impressed during the interview, it was him.

When asked on The Daily Show how she reacted upon learning that the Taliban wanted her dead, Malala gave a response that stunned the host:

"I started thinking about that, and I used to think that the Talib would come, and he would just kill me. But then I said, 'If he comes, what would you do Malala?' then I would reply to myself, 'Malala, just take a shoe and hit him.' But then I said, 'If you hit a Talib with your shoe, then there would be no difference between you and the Talib. You must not treat others with cruelty and that much harshly, you must fight others but through peace and through dialogue and through education.' Then I said I will tell him how important education is and that 'I even want education for your children as well.' And I will tell him, 'That's what I want to tell you, now do what you want.'"

It's no surprise that after this response, Jon totally wanted to adopt her! If that doesn't work out, we totally call next!

We're so proud of you, Malala! Keep up on being the change you wish to see in the world!

David Beckham Presents Malala Yousafzai With The Courage Award At The Pride Of Britain Awards!

david beckham presents bravery award to malala yousafzai at pride of britain awards

What's better than winning an award??

How about having former soccer stud David Beckham hand you the trophy?! That's like having two victories for the price of one!

Last week, the iconic footballer was on hand at the Pride of Britain Awards in London, where he presented Malala Yousafzai with the Teenager of Courage Award, and she was DEFINITELY deserving!!

The 16-year-old Pakistani girl has been a well known advocate for women's education in her region over the past few years, and one day she was shot in both the head and neck by a Taliban gunman in an assassination attempt on her way home from school!

Luckily, Malala survived the attack, and since then she has become an icon around the world for equal opportunity education for girls!

Earlier this year, she was honored by Angelina Jolie at the Women in the World gala in NYC, and she also became the youngest person to EVER receive a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize!

Oh, and did we mention she's also written a book??

At just 16 years of age, it's absolutely amazing to hear what Malala has already been able to accomplish in her life, and we know this wont be the last we hear of her!

Congrats on the big win! You deserve it!!

dennis rodman returns to north korea for second time this year

We don't normally think of North Korea as a conventional summer vacation spot, but Dennis Rodman has never really been a conventional kind of guy!

The former NBA superstar is making his way back to Pyongyang to talk about the possibility of starting up a basketball league, and of course to say hello to his good friend Kim Jong Un!

In an interview he did recently, Dennis said he would definitely speak to his dictator BFF about the release of U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae, who was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for "hostile acts" against North Korea.

He said:

Helen Mirren had the honor of hosting the Nobel Peace Prize concert this past weekend in Oslo, Norway.
