Freida Pinto is to host a pre-Oscars party in conjunction with Vanity Fair.
The event is part of Vanity Fair's annual, week-long celebration leading up to the Academy Awards and the 14th instalment of 'Campaign Hollywood', with proceeds going to a campaign for the education of girls around the world through film and social media advocacy.
Pinto's spokesperson confirmed the news in a statement, saying: "When Vanity Fair approached Freida to co-host the pre-Oscar party with them she was more than happy to align with Vanity Fair and bring attention to the 10X10 Girl Rising initiative.
"She has always felt committed to this cause and wouldn't miss out on this opportunity."
Called 'DJ Night with Freida Pinto and Vanity Fair', the event - which attracts the biggest stars of Hollywood - will feature a special performance by DJ AcE.
