She is set to host a fundraising reception in support of President Joe Biden’s re-election campaign.

Scheduled for March 4th, this high-profile event is creating quite a buzz, with tickets rumored to be priced as high as $10,000. 

Known for her vast network and influence in the fashion and entertainment industries, Wintour has a track record of actively fundraising for Democratic political candidates.

Her efforts have been substantial, with over $175 million raised during her tenure chairing the Met Gala since 1995, according to Forbes

Wintour’s support for Democratic leaders, including the Clintons and Barack Obama, is well-documented. 

In a 2020 Vogue article, she praised Biden. She highlighted his qualities of decency, honor, compassion, trustworthiness, and experience. 

These qualities, she believes, are in short supply in Washington.

Excitement has been building as the Met Gala recently announced its co-chairs and theme. According to Vogue, Joining Wintour are Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, Chris Hemsworth, and Zendaya. 

The theme for this year’s gala is “The Garden of Time.” It sparks the imagination of the star-studded attendees who will grace the museum’s steps on the first Monday in May for this glamorous benefit.

The theme ties in with the spring exhibition at the Met’s Costume Institute, titled Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion.
