Scarlett Johansson cohosted an Obama fundraiser in NYC last night with Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The "Runway to Win" event was held at a Theory store, and instead of new boyfriend Nate Naylor, Scarlett brought along her brother Hunter. Anna and Scarlett gathered a large group of fashionable New Yorkers, like models Karolina Kurkova, Chanel Iman, Karlie Kloss, and Joan Smalls. Designer Rachel Roy was also in attendance, as was Solange Knowles.
Both Anna and Scarlett are longtime Democratic activists and donors. Anna, in particular, has been identified as one of Obama's top "bundlers" for her ability to get the president's reelection campaign a great deal of funding. Yesterday's gathering was unique, however. Twenty-three top fashion designers, including Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez, and even Beyoncé Knowles, customized gear that supporters could purchase, with proceedings benefiting Obama 2012. Beyoncé herself swung by after seeing Jay-Z's second Carnegie Hall show. Scarlett spoke of the importance of "Runway to Win", commenting, "I think the most important thing is that the fashion world has an international spotlight shown on it. To be able to use that spotlight on a cause like this is incredible."
