From the start of his first presidential campaign, it didn’t take long for Barack Obama to become an icon in popular culture as much as in politics, thanks to the outspoken support of numerous Hollywood A-listers and other boldface names. Among such fans was, somewhat surprisingly, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.

Following lavish events—some of which raised upward of $1 million at a time and were cohosted by such names as Sarah Jessica Parker and Harvey Weinsteinthe Devil Wears Prada muse climbed the charts to become the Obamas’ fourth-biggest fundraiser. That extravagance continues this year with the announcement of another political event: a $32,000-a-head dinner to benefit the Democratic National Committee at Wintour’s Greenwich Village townhome, at which the President and First Lady will be the guests of honor. The event is scheduled for June 17.  

The fundraiser marks the second major event of the year in the ongoing Obama-Wintour relationship; early this month, the First Lady cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Anna Wintour Costume Center.
