Woman Power on Display at Pangea Day Event

Pangea Day was created from the vision of Jehane Noujaim who was awarded the prestigious TED prize in 2006. TED asked her to make a wish to change the world and hers was to bring the world together through the power of film. I had the pleasure of attending the live filming of Pangea Day at Sony Studios today. It was a great excuse to invite friends, including documentary film maker Cathee Weiss.

I enjoyed sharing the day with women from around the world who are smart and beautiful and not afraid to look feminine. Among them, Queen Noor was a delight in both her demeanor and her shimmering turquoise gown. Meg Ryan, who is on the board of directors of the Pangea project, is eternally adorable.

Thank you Lisa and Jesus for stopping by. I do wish that you had heard about this event in time.

For all the effort and funds that Nokia obviously poured into this, it's a shame that it wasn't publicized more before it happened. Granted Jesus is in Mexico but I know that he is very tuned into media, has traveled all over the world and would have loved this.
