>> Whether she meant to send the message or not, Anna Wintour has reinforced her status as someone not to mess with.
As of yesterday, she has been added to the list of Barack Obama's bundlers for raising between $100,000 and $200,000 in campaign contributions. That $1,000-a-head fundraiser, "An Evening with Michelle Obama," she held on June 10 along with Andre Leon Talley, Calvin Klein, and her boyfriend Shelby Bryan, must have been highly successful, because Andre Leon Talley has also been added to the list for contributing between $100,000 and $200,000. Curiously, their fellow hosts Calvin Klein and Shelby Bryan are nowhere to be found on the list.
All this generosity is good and well, but I can't help but remember when Hillary Clinton pulled out of Vogue earlier this year because she "already [had] the women's vote in the bag" and "[didn't] need [Vogue] anymore," causing Anna to chastise her in Vogue's February 2008 Editor's Letter. Having full Vogue support on Obama's side must be like icing on the cake.
