Who said fashion and politics don’t mix? Last night the two did just that in a star studded event, NYC style.
Anna Wintour, along with Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman, co-hosted a fundraiser for President Barack Obama, with tickets costing $38,500.00. Pricey, but when you are the President, and the party is hosted by mega stars (lets face it, Harvey Weinstein and Anna Wintour could rule the world).
The celebrity guest list read like a who’s who on the list of most desired with names like, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Pharell Williams, Jimmy Fallon, and politician Governor Cuomo, and fashion designer, Vera Wang. The guest list plus price of tickets equals big money for Obama’s re-election campaign.
The President, who has lost favor throughout his first term as President also, had a previous fundraiser that same night. With ticket sales and donations from both parties added together, 2.3 million dollars was raised. Of course, I like to think that 2 million of that came from Anna Wintour/Harvey Weinstein superhero team. Either way, its got to feel good having the support of the woman, who is said to be the most powerful woman in the United States.
