You’re invited (if you’re lucky) to dinner with Anna, Sarah Jessica and Barack
The Lineup collects the media stories, big and small, that are on our radar each day.
Want to land the "two best seats in the house" at Anna Wintour and Sarah Jessica Parker's upcoming Obama fund-raiser in New York?
In a video released by the campaign this morning, the Vogue editor encourages viewers to enter to win an all-expenses-paid trip to the June 14 "Dinner With Barack" event she's cohosting with the "Sex and the City" star. (Hat tip to The Hill for pointing us here.)
"Sarah and I both have our own reasons for supporting president Obama, and we want to hear yours," says Wintour. "So please join us."
Wintour is one of Obama's biggest boosters in the celebrity and fashion worlds. She last hosted a fund-raiser for the president in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District back in February, an event on which she collaborated with Scarlett Johansson.
Look closely for a close-up of her silk scarf, printed with an Obama campaign logo among the paisley. You can watch below:
