What Happened At Anna Wintour's Glamorous Fundraiser For Obama

Celebrities (Gwyneth! Cameron!) each paid $15,000 to eat (or look at) salmon, and be in the company of fashion designer Tom Ford.

"Vogue" editor Anna Wintour wore a brown floral Tom Ford dress.

She co-hosted the dinner with Ford, which was held at the Mark's Club in London, where about 55 guests paid $15,000 to attend and sit in front of a plate of salmon.

Guests also enjoyed a talk not by Obama himself, but by David Plouffe, the president's political strategist.


Cameron Diaz also attended, wearing a powder pink jumpsuit.

But, somewhat oddly, it was by Emilia Wickstead instead of Tom Ford. Often when designers host things — fundraisers, parties, what have you — the celebrity guests wear that label.
