Scarlett Johansson, Anna Wintour step out to support Obama 2012
Planning on supporting the Obama campaign this year with a campaign pin, or maybe a bumper sticker? For the stylish set, there's a much more fashionable way to show your support.
Just a few days before the fashion world's elite show their collections in New York City for fashion week, some of them stepped out to support the Obama reelection campaign at the Runway to Win fundraiser Tuesday evening. Hosted by Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour and actress Scarlett Johansson, the fundraiser featured Obama campaign gear designed by designers Tory Burch, Alexander Wang, Vera Wang, Diane Von Furstenberg and others. Proceeds from the sales go to help reelect President Obama.
Prices of Runway to Win items far exceed those for your average campaign pins or bumper stickers. Some of the items include a $75 Tory Burch-designed Obama tote bag, a $95 Monique Péan circle scarf featuring Obama's face, and a $45 Altuzarra v-neck tee with the words "Obama 2012" across the bottom.
