Among the stars joining the group were supermodel Iman, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour who co-hosted the event.

U2's latest single Ordinary Love comes from the soundtrack of the movie.
The band met Nelson Mandela on several occasions since his release from prison an, according to their website, they were shown clips of hte movie by Harvey Weinstein who asked them to write music for the movie.
"When I asked them to consider writing a song for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, it was the fastest 'yes' I have ever received," the movie producer said.
"The band saw various cuts of the film over the summer and worked diligently to write a song that truly reflects Nelson Mandela. I think they did a brilliant job honoring the man and the leader they have known for over 20 years."
