One of Italy’s most venerable names, Cipriani, owns some of the hottest hotspots in New York. Cipriani’s Wall Street is an opulent building in the heart of the moneymakers.

Ivanka Trump is taking her place on the charity scene in New York, heading a Young Friends of the New York Pops Gala recently. The lovely, lissome beauty is now an Apprentice in her father’s fabled company. Joining Ivanka was famed jeweler Pascal Mouawad. Not content with developing the family business in the U.S. Pascal has made a name for himself as creator of the fabled Victoria’s Secret $15 million dollar bra. This year, the drop dead garment is worn by the beauteous Gisele Bundchen.

Three women were honored for having "changed the landscape of the world on behalf of all women!" Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, first head of a major Hollywood Studio Sherry Lansing (remember Godfather I, II, III?), and feminist activist and author Gloria Steinam, who delighted us all with her proclamation "I’m 71! Get over it." Dr. Ruth Westheimer and CAW founder Faye Wattleton rounded out this powerful group who have inspired all women.
