We hope Barack Obama’s campaign manager has a Versace money clip in his pants somewhere because he sure has some super-chic money to fill it with. Anna Wintour and André Leon Talley are among the latest additions to the list of people raising $100,000 to $200,000 for Obama’s campaign. We’re guessing a good chunk of the dough came from the Über-shmancy dinner Vogue held for Michelle Obama last month. Guests to the cocktail party alone shelled out $1,000 to $2,300, and tickets to the buffet dinner following at Calvin Klein’s house cost $10,000. Those who attended and presumably coughed up cash included Catherine Malandrino, Erin Fetherston, Cynthia Rowley, Thakoon Panichgul, Ralph Rucci, Nicole Miller, Tory Burch, and Zac Posen.
As Fashionologie notes, Calvin Klein and Shelby Bryan were curiously not on the list. We’re sure their checks are on the way to Obama headquarters as we type…
