Scarlett Johansson uses fashion to support Obama’s re-election


ScarJo hosting the event

A group of fashion designers, singers, filmmakers and other celebrities joined effort to show their support for the re-election of President Barack Obama in 2012, in an event called Runway to Win, which was hosted by ScarJo.

Celebrities like Beyonce, Diddy, Russel Simmons, Marc Jacobs, and Diane von Furstenberg didn’t wait for fashion week. They designed their own version of Obama-inspired clothing and accessories.

In an interview with the HuffPost, Johansson shared her belief that the GOP is “totally unfashionable” and also listed the president’s achievements in a very Obama fashion, using the word “change” a lot:

“Change for American women: the first bill President Obama signed into law was the Fair Pay Act,” she said. “Three women now sit on the Supreme Court for the first time in history. And insurance companies must now offer women cancer screenings and contraception at no cost.

“Change for LGBT Americans: The President ended Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell so no one will ever again have to lie about who they love to serve the country they love,” Johansson added. “The President declared the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. And he signed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law.”
