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."

Mariah Carey: I Like to 'Feel My Bones'

Originally posted 11/09/2011 05:30PM

Mariah Carey may have scored a hit with "Touch My Body," but the singer's mindset when she was pregnant with twins was more like, Don't Look at Me.

At her peak pregnancy weight, Carey, 42, was so disgusted with her physique that she refused to let even husband Nick Cannon see her unless she covered up first, she said Tuesday.

"I had a towel on in the tub," Carey, who gave birth in April, says. "Iā€™m not lying, I promise you! You think I would let Nick see me looking rancid like that?"
