As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Michelle Hobnobs with the Fashion Elite

First Lady Michelle Obama dropped in on New York City’s fashion royalty Wednesday night, using her own star power to raise megacash for the Democratic National Committee and her husband’s burgeoning effort to help the Democrats seize Congress.

Michelle fashionableAt the luxurious Manhattan pad of fashion designer Tory Burch, Michelle drummed up at least a half a million dollars – and probably much more – from 100 guests who paid between $5,000 and $25,000 to attend.

Among the attendees spotted by pool reporters were tireless Obama supporter Anna Wintour, Vera Wang, and actress Julianne Moore.

Meanwhile, President Obama was alone at his big house in Chicago following his own day of fundraising for House Democrats.

Michelle spoke to the wealthy designers as if addressing a band of sisters.

From the pool report:

“This is a special event because there are a lot of people who have touched my life in so many important ways, who have helped me become the poised and stylish woman that I am,” the First Lady said, provoking laughs from the audience. “So, I want to thank all of you. I want to thank Tory.”

The event was the second of the day in a first lady fundraising blitz. Michelle had just flown in from Boston, where she hosted a fundraiser for Massachusetts Democratic senate candidate Rep. Ed Markey that was expected to raise at least $600,000.

Following the event at Burch’s apartment, Michelle headed to another Manhattan fundraiser for the DNC, an “LGBT Gala” that also included a hundred people paying $5,000-$25,000 per ticket. Michelle was introduced by Jason Collins, the Washington Wizards center who recently came out as the nation’s first openly gay major professional sports player.

  1. You have actually created some exceptional points here. I specifically appreciate the way you’ve been able to stick so much thought into a relatively short post (comparitively) which creates it an thoughtful publish on your subject. In my opinion, you’ve presented the topic in a quite thorough yet concise manner, that is genuinely useful when somebody wants to get the facts without spending too a lot time searching the web and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions. I usually get so frustrated with so abundant in the final results inside the major SE’s due to the fact they normally seem to mostly be filled with filler content that often isn’t extremely sensible. If you don’t mind I’m going to add this post and your blog to my delicious favorites so I can share it with my family. I appear forward to approaching back to check out your future posts as well.
