Anna Wintour, Vogue editor and one of President Barack Obama’s top celebrity backers, will host two more lavish overseas fundraisers for the Obama campaign in London and Paris.
On September 19, Wintour will host a “dinner with Anna Wintour, Tom Ford and David Plouffe” in London. Guests will have to pay $15,000 to attend.
On October 1, Wintour will host a “Paris Fashion Week Reception with Anna Wintour.” Attendees will have to pay $2,500 to go to the reception and $10,000 if they want dinner.
Obama has railed against money in politics and has proposed a constitutional amendment to restrict political speech and overturn the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. He has also painted Mitt Romney as a wealthy politician who is out of touch with regular Americans.
However, Obama continues to rely on his wealthy celebrity friends. Last week, George Clooney hosted a $30,000-a-head fundraiser in Geneva for Obama. And Wintour, along with other celebrities, have starred in numerous advertisements for the campaign.
