Beyoncé, Diddy, Tracy Reese, Russell Simmons, & Rachel Roy Design T-Shirts For President Obama
In 2009, Beyoncé put her stamp on the whirlwind 2008 Presidential election of Barack Obama by singing “At Last” (R.I.P. Etta James!) during Barack and Michelle Obama‘s first dance at the Inaugural Ball on January 20, 2009 in Washington, D.C. This time, the diva is working her magic to a tee.
The new mommy of Blue Ivy Carter collaborated with her mommy, House of Dereon designer Tina Knowles, to create a T-shirt as part of Anna Wintour‘s Runway To Win campaign. Bey’s tee for Obama is filled with words of inspiration—from the saying “Yes We Can” to the phrase “Transform A Nation Together.” The shirt retails for $45.
Similar to 2008′s Runway to Change initiative, Runway to Win campaign features 22 designers including Tory Burch, Joseph Altuzarra, Rag & Bone, Diane von Furstenberg, Narciso Rodriguez, Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Rachel Roy, Tracy Reese, Russell Simmons, Rachel Roy and Diddy, who will all contribute tote, scarf, clutch and t-shirt designs to benefit the Obama Victory Fund. But not everyone is down with Vogue‘s Runaway to Win. Designers Donna Karen and Marc Jacobs both declined to participate to avoid pissing off possible Republican clientele.
