The British beauty will be feted for her dedication to philanthropy at the annual Angel Ball, which supports cancer research.
The event's organiser Denise Rich says, "She really is (an) amazing woman and she does a lot for charity. She has her own charity. She raised a lot of money this summer for Haiti and for AIDS relief."
Patti LaBelle and Eve will perform at the bash, which takes place on 17 October (11) in New York.
