Variety Covers Set the Stage for Third Annual ‘Power of Women’ Event

Friday luncheon will celebrate Julianne Moore, Megyn Kelly, Vera Wang, Lupita Nyong'o and Misty Copeland.

EverytownforGunSafety_LogoThe five “Lifetime Impact Honorees” were revealed by Variety in early March and will be celebrated Friday at a luncheon at Cipriani New York hosted by Billy Eichner. They are: Julianne Moore, Megyn Kelly, Vera Wang, Lupita Nyong’o and Misty Copeland.

The magazine’s Power of Women issue comes out today and this morning, the Daily Mail has the first look at the five covers featuring those honorees. Moore, whose pose is arguably the most artistic, is being recognized for her nascent work with non-profit Everytown for Gun Safety. Last fall, she helped launched a celebrity-filled new action wing for the organization, Everytown Creative Council:

The creative community is committed to helping erase the scourge of gun violence, which claims 88 American lives every day. We are artists, but we’re American citizens first. That’s why Everytown, in partnership with founding chairwoman Julianne Moore, have established the Everytown Creative Council – joining forces to help amplify the movement to end gun violence in our country.

The list of 109 celebrities on the Creative Council page is impressive. It includes Alec Baldwin, Bill Hader, Sarah Jessica Parker, Questlove and Russell Simmons.
