Fashion Scoop: Obamarama!!

It’s everywhere you turn. On bumper stickers, scrawled across trucker hats, in commercials during a television show, staring from the cover of your favorite magazine. All with one resounding message: Obama fever is sweeping our nation.Β 
Not since JFK has a political figure been so revered and loved by (most of) the American public. And fashion, ever a source of expression, is showing symptoms as well.

The ubiquitous Obama tee can be seen on everyone from trendy hipsters in France to the glamourous Halle and Beyonce strolling the streets of NY…

Other expressions are a bit more…unfortunate…

I’m mad you have a suit on with that foolishness. Somebody get his mother on the phone…

And whose Uncle came up with the Obama dance?

Wow. That’s a burning hot mess if I ever saw one. I mean, I’m glad you all care about politics…and maybe, just maybe, the negrodian nonsense will inspire someone to vote. But you have to wonder, especially in light of the Paris Hilton comparisons, is it hurting or helping his campaign?

Several designers, from Tracy Reese to Jay-Z, believe their products are the kind that help. The fashion industry’s biggest names have lent their talents to designing Obama/Biden’s official paraphernalia. And the proceeds from the designs, which range from t-shirts to tote bags, will go toward putting Obama in the White House.

A couple of my favorites:

Yeah, I pretty much love them all. And now for the prices…s/s tees, $60, l/s tees, $70, sweater, $70, bags, $75, scarf, $95. Expensive I know but change is priceless. All available at http://www.runwaytochange.com.

So in the words of my friend Melle, “if you’ve been kinda meaning to donate,” all summer, here’s your chance! And you can get an amazing Marc Jacobs bag too.

P.S. They don’t allow paraphernalia at the voting booths so remember to leave your Obama tee at home on election day.
