The actress made a stunning appearance at the Women's Cancer Research Fund's annual gala, held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

Stone was the recipient of the 2023 Courage Award for her unwavering support of breast cancer research and advocacy.

Stone turned heads in a gorgeous olive-green gown which featured built-in gloves as an extension of the sleeves.

The dress, a part of Akbar's Spring 2023 collection, caught the attention of the media and attendees alike.

The designer, who shared several photos of Stone on his Instagram and Facebook accounts, described the actress as "incredible and inspiring" and praised her for "looking stunning" in his creation.

The Women's Cancer Research Fund's annual gala is a program of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) and benefits breast cancer research.

Born and raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Yousef Akbar first studied logistics in Australia before indulging his passion for fashion design, earning a Bachelor's in fashion in 2016.

In 2017, he launched his fashion brand for eveningwear.

This is not the first time the American actress has associated herself with Arab fashion designers.

The September 2022 issue of Vogue Arabia featured Stone wearing Lebanese designers such as  Ashi Studio, Elie Saab, Rami Al-Ali, with a cover image presenting her wearing a blue gown with embellishment by Zuhair Murad.
