Sharon Stone was honored with 2013 Peace Summit Award on Wednesday, October 23. Wearing a camel-colored coat, Stone attended the official ceremony for the 13th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in Warsaw, Poland. She later removed the coat, revealing a short gray dress.

The event, which was held at the Grand Theater and National Opera House, was also attended by Mikhail Gorbachev and Betty Williams. Stone bowed to Dalai Lama and made peace sign before receiving the award from the spiritual leader.

Stone is honored with the prize for her "activities that brought solidarity and new hope to the millions of people who have fought and are fighting against the tragedy of HIV/AIDS," Daily Mail reports. The "Basic Instinct" actress has been working with U.S. charity amFAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research, and has vowed to be their campaign chairman until a safe and effective vaccine is found.

A committee of Nobel Peace laureates names one person from the world of culture and entertainment who is actively involved in bringing awareness about peace and global issues to receive the award every year. Previous honorees include Cat Stevens, Bono, former soccer player Roberto Baggio and Sean Penn.
