While Obama’s busy kitesurfing and making the kind of chilled out faces one makes when the future of the nation no longer rests upon their shoulders, his BFF and noted White House prankster Joe Biden has taken to partying with the downtown fashion crowd. Okay, fine, so it was one night out in honor of his daughter Ashley’s new line of charitable hoodies, but it looks like he was such a good sport about taking selfies with literally everyone that I almost wouldn’t be surprised to see him pop up at a fashion show or two. Just saying.
Ashley’s line is called Livelihood (get it?!) and it’s a collaboration with Gilt in which a portion of the proceeds from the $79 – $99 sweatshirts go to support the non-profit’s “community development initiatives,” which include training programs, job placement and education, beginning with two communities in Washington, DC and her native Delaware. Sounds great! And the hoodies are pretty good looking. I gotta say though, I’m a bit disappointed Biden didn’t choose don one for his NYFW debut.
That’s okay Joe, there’s always the Alexander Wang afterparty this weekend. Or the Hood by Air show? Maybe hit up Marc Jacobs? Text me, we’ll figure something out.
