>> It's no secret that Andre Leon Talley is a hardcore Barack Obama supporter — he carried Diane von Furstenberg's Obama '08 Love bag around during Fashion Week and showed up in Chicago for Obama's acceptance speech. Since Nov. 4, he's continued to show his support, wearing a Baby Phat coat with crystals spelling out "The New American Dream" on the back on various occasions, and alternating with two black beanies — one covered in Obama buttons and "Hope"-charm dangling safety pins, and the other a $20 black beanie with "Obama" spelled out in crystals that he wore to Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2009 show this week: "I bought it from a man on the street who was selling these out of the trunk of his car. I’m ordering more for Christmas gifts!"
But the crystal-happy Obama support doesn't stop there — ALT has also ordered an overcoat with the president-elect's face done in crystals on the back to wear to the inauguration.
