Vogue’s Anna Wintour, Andre Leon Talley and designer Calvin Klein chaired “An Evening with Michelle Obama,” a $1,000-a-head-fundraiser at the Sikkema Jenkins art gallery in New York last night, Fashion Week Daily reports.

For $2,300, guests got their photo taken with the prospective First Lady, while $10,000 got them an invite to a dinner at the home of Calvin Klein.

The 44-year-old beauty wore Isabel Toledo. “We almost fainted,” the designer’s husband Ruben Toldeo said.

But it was designer Zac Posen who wore his support on his sleeve, sporting a “Yes We Can, Obama 08” T-shirt under his blazer. “I think it’s always great for someone who represents our country to look good,” Posen said.
