As we all know by now, Clinton has announced her 2016 presidential bid. Since her announcement in April, many have openly pronounced their support. Of those supporting the presidential candidate is Burch and the world’s most respected editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. Wintour along with Martha Stewart, Donna Karan and Barneys owner Richard Perry were among the 200 attendees.
According to the Daily Mail, tickets to attend the fundraiser hosted by the fashion designer started at a cool $1,000. For an additional $1,700 ($2,700 in total) attendees had an opportunity to take a photo with Clinton.
As stated by a source to the New York Post, the event was “perfect.”
The source said, “t was really very funny. Tory’s home is gorgeous … Everything was perfect. There were so many impeccably turned-out fashion people there. Anna Wintour looked like she could have been cut out of her own magazine: beautiful summer dress, not a hair out of place.” The source continued, “Anna introduced Hillary, a wonderful introduction, moving enough to make a grown man cry. Then, all of a sudden the sprinkler system went off, and those who were on the lawn got soaked. You could hear some people screaming.” The source joked, “These perfect Hamptons people can withstand 100 percent humidity, but a really good sprinkler system did the trick to ruin their hair.”
Burch’s Gatsby-era estate sits on a plush 15.4 acres in Southampton. The seven-bedroom manor, which was originally constructed in 1929, features a tennis court, a basketball court, and a pool. She enlisted designer and architect Daniel Romualdez as well as decorator Eva Hood to create the perfect home she desired. Romualdez has also collaborated with Burch on previous residences as well as a number of Tory Burch stores around the world.
