The event honored some of the world's most influential people from across the globe. Putting a list of all-stars from the the worlds of entertainment, media, politics, music, and fashion is not an easy task but it sure makes for a fun, star-studded party as guests gathered under one roof including Oprah Winfrey who sat down right next to her new BFF, First Lady Michelle Obama.
