We were most excited to see Carolina Herrera... "fashion's first lady," as pointed out by presenter Diana Taylor. Having built a successful business in her hometown of NYC-in a field dominated by men, Mrs. Herrera is also known for her generous support of several organizations as well as entrepreneurial acumen.

And heads were nodding when Mrs. Herrera made a plea to Diana Taylor-about her BF… "I am desperate Bloomberg is leaving…and what are we going to do without him…?"
It's fitting the Mayor proclaimed November 14th. 2013 NY Women's Foundation Day in NYC. Proof a lot more good can be done till he leaves office in a few...
