Obama 2012 Campaign Goes to the Dogs -- In Style
Did you miss last Friday's $40,000-per-plate dinner for President Obama in New York, hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker and Anna Wintour? Have no fear -- you can still support the re-election of Bo the Portuguese Water Dog's favorite candidate if that's your inclination, and you can do it in style. Simply pay a visit to the online store Runway to Win.
Curated by Wintour, Vogue magazine's editor-in-chief and style icon, the haute-design side of the site features presidential pet accessories for sale, with proceeds benefiting the Obama 2012 campaign. For hardcore design hounds, the hot items are a T-shirt for dogs designed by Marc Jacobs (which is embroidered with the slogan "I BARK FOR OBAMA") and a dog leash-and-collar set styled by Thakoon Panichgul in a perfectly patriotic palette of red, white, and blue.
There are also numerous nondesigner dog duds, including leashes and collars that proudly proclaim "BARACK'S BEST FRIEND," plus a Bo Obama DIY T-shirt that comes with fabric markers to color in the image of the First Dog, and also a cotton dog bandana. However, serious four-footed fashionistas will likely not settle for a cotton bandana; they would prefer to be accessorized with Panichgul's sumptuous, slightly pricier silk scarf, as worn by Her Vogueness herself in a recent video.
