Anna Wintour’s last fund-raiser for Barack Obama, held at Sarah Jessica Parker’s apartment in May, garnered criticism from a number of parties. Some felt it made Obama look like he had nothing better to do than nibble crostini with rich, out-of-touch celebrities, while others were simply opposed to the “total insanity” it created in Parker’s West Village neighborhood. But haters can seethe all they want in their tree-shaded brownstones: the 50-guest, $40,000-per-plate dinner raised a boatload of money for Obama’s campaign, so Wintour’s going in for round two, this time with Harvey Weinstein as a cohost. This dinner will take place in the far less congested neighborhood of Greenwich, CT on August 6, according to the Post, with tickets reportedly going for $35,800 per head — a comparative steal! (In other news: Wouldn’t it be just adorable if all the guests brought their dogs to frolic on the lawn in their Bark for Obama gear? Anna, you can totally steal that if you want.)
Harvey and Anna.
