Republican National Committee targets Obama campaign's fashion effort

Anna Wintour's usually not one to receive a fashion beat-down. Unless it's from the Republican National Committee.

Republican National Committee targets Obama campaign's fashion effort

Anna Wintour's usually not one to receive a fashion beat-down.

Unless it's from the Republican National Committee.

On Tuesday, the RNC released a promotional video bashing the Obama campaign for holding hands with fashion's elite through its Runway to Win intiative.

High-profile fashion industry movers and shakers have supported Obama since 2008, starting with the Runway to Win effort. Furthermore, last week, Wintour was announced as one of three top-tier fundraising "bundlers" after having raised more than $500,000 for Obama's campaign.

The video includes various shots of Runway to Win merchandise items like the $75 Tory Burch tote and $95 Thakoon scarf. Then the RNC follows up with this slam: "Watching the Obama campaign host a ritzy NYC fashion show while 12 million Americans remain out of work? Priceless."

Now, voters are probably scratching their heads and wondering, What about Mitt Romney?

Watch it below.
