Nicole Kidman, Shania Twain, Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks joined Britain's first lady Sarah Brown and QUEEN RANIA of Jordan in New York on Wednesday (23Sep09) to show their support for a women's charity.
U.S. lifestyle queen Martha Stewart and designer Diane von Furstenburg also attended the Important Dinner for Women, where the world's most powerful women were celebrated.
The gala was also held to support the Millennium Development Goal, which aims to reduce the number of women who die from childbirth every year.
Brown, the wife of U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown, co-hosted the charity event and urged the 300 attendees to help save lives by using their voices to raise the profile of the global initiative.
She told the crowd, "When a mother survives, a lot survives with her, and when women come together, they are an unstoppable force for change."
