Scarlett Johansson thinks the fashion world can influence voters to reelect Obama. Per E! Online:
Tuesday night in New York City, the stars came out for the launch of Runway to Win, a collaborative effort by American designers to support President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. Actress Scarlett Johansson, who cohosted the fete alongside Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, explained just why selling super-cute T’s and totes can help give some Obama job security when the 2012 election rolls around… “I think the most important thing is that the fashion world has an international spotlight shown on it,” she told reporters. “To be able to use that spotlight on a cause like this is incredible.” The 27-year-old We Bought a Zoo star said the idea of “conscious consumerism” was appealing, and that “any way to reintroduce that kind of cool factor [to Obama’s reelection campaign] is very valuable.”
I’m not here to get into any political arguments, but in an era of rampant un- and underemployment, endorsements from people who design and wear $300,000 gowns may not make a candidate relatable to the everyman. The biggest help Scarlett Johansson can give President Obama would probably be to wear a V-neck (or nothing) and keep quiet.
