Rai Bachchan was announced this week as the global ambassador for the UNAIDS programme, while Turlington is a US delegate to the UN Commission on the Status of Women.

According to IANS, the 38-year-old Bollywood actress said of her new role: "Personally I can completely relate to these issues. Especially as a mother.

"There is work to be done in prevention of mother-to-child transfer of the HIV virus and that is the area we are immediately working on - to have a world free of another generation being born of HIV by 2015. This is something I will immediately be working on with the UNAIDS."

The Raavan star wore a red, floor-length gown to the dinner, while Turlington adopted a more casual style, wearing a black suit and blue shirt.

Other celebrities in attendance at the event included British model Lily Cole, Smash star Debra Messing and basketball star Shaquille O'Neal, the Daily Mail reports.
