During a glamorous awards ceremony held in Sweden on Thursday evening, the acclaimed Hollywood star Kristin Davis, best known for her iconic role as Charlotte York in the TV series "Sex and the City," received the prestigious Conservation Award, The Perfect World Foundation Award. The award was bestowed upon her in recognition of her dedication and passion for saving elephants and her contribution to raising global awareness.
Amidst the star-studded ceremony, Kristin's Hollywood colleagues, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, Pierce Brosnan, and Rob Lowe, surprised her with their heartfelt tributes and congratulations.
Michael Patrick King, who directed and created the TV series "Sex and the City," and Sarah Jessica Parker, who portrayed the lead role of Carrie Bradshaw, also joined in the praises. King said, "Congratulations on receiving The Perfect World Foundation Award for your tireless efforts to save the wild elephants. Everyone who knows you or has had the pleasure of working with you knows that you are determined, rational, and deeply emotional. It's a rare combination, and we are all the better for it. It's not a perfect world yet, but I know you won't stop until you've brought us even closer. We love you!" Sarah Jessica Parker added, "I just want to joyfully join others in congratulating you. Not only for the professional you are, but for the friend you are, the mother you are, the colleague you are. But I am particularly delighted and feel that you truly deserve to be recognized and honored for the extraordinary work you do for the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and countless other organizations making a significant and meaningful impact. As I try to tell you often, you are an inspiration. I love you so much, and I wish I could be there to witness all of this. But I'm there in spirit; I just want you to know that we love you and are proud of you every day, but especially tonight."

Rob Lowe, who also appeared in the film, praised Kristin for her dedication to the cause during the awards ceremony. "Kristen, congratulations on The Perfect World Foundation Award. I can't think of anyone more passionate about animal conservation than you. Only you could get me to venture into the African wilderness to make a film and shed light on the preservation of our surviving elephants. You deserve this. I love you," greeted Rob Lowe.
