Among the celebrities on hand to hear Obama’s remarks were Oscar winner Meryl Streep, fashion designer Michael Kors and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who moderated a private question-and-answer session between the president and the guests.
The next stop of the night was the Plaza Hotel, which featured a performance by Mariah Carey.
