The Vogue editor's "Runway to win" initiative -- which had famous designers like Tory Burch and Marc Jacobs creating bags, shirts and other gear for the Obama campaign -- brought in a lot more dough than some predicted.

I love the entire line. I bought two of everything for myself and one of everything for all my friends living and dead. You should too. They make great Chris...er holiday gifts.

Maybe Wintour can use some of the money to buy back her soul.

Only thing good about Obama’s 2nd term - four more years of ‘Boob Belt’ fun.
