Originally posted 03/14/2013 07:05AM

Last year was certainly a whirlwind for Good Morning America's Robin Roberts.

The morning-show anchor received a bone marrow transplant to treat a rare blood disorder, and just five months later returned to the air.

Roberts, who opened up about her experience in a PEOPLE cover story, will now be honored by fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg at the fourth annual DVF Awards at the United Nations on April 5.

Furstenberg, with co-host Tina Brown of Newsweek and The Daily Beast, will present Roberts with the Lifetime Leadership Award.

Sarah Jessica Parker & More Power Lunch in N.Y.C.

Originally posted 11/14/2012 06:00AM

The phrase "ladies who lunch" got turbocharged on Monday when Cosmopolitan's editor-in-chief Joanna Coles assembled a posse of powerful women – including Sarah Jessica Parker, Rose McGowan, Diane von Furstenberg, Jennifer Westfeldt and Gayle King – for a mid-day meal at Michael's in New York.

Dressed in a leather jacket and pleated skirt, Parker was taken aback by the buzz in the room, which also included several newly elected Congresswomen.

"There are a few women [here] that I've known for a number of years and I'm a great admirer of," she told PEOPLE. "If they're powerful, that's just a byproduct. But I don't think of them that way. I just think of them as great women that I'm fortunate to know."

Westfeldt – who wrote and directed 2011's Friends with Kids – confessed that she power lunches "almost never."

"I'm a meal skipper, bagel on-the-run person," she said.

But as any power luncher knows, food is hardly the point.

As King put it, "I walk around this room and I feel good about being a girl."
