Chicago's Republican fashionistas may be torn over whether to attend the Runway to Win event next month.

On one hand, A-list fashion notables such as Vogue editor Anna Wintour and models Iman and Chanel Iman will be in the house.

On the other hand, it's a fundraiser for the Obama Victory Fund 2012.

Tickets for the June 12th Chicago unveiling of the designer collection at Harpo Studios start at $150 for guest pass, $1,000 for a VIP pass and $2,500 for a dinner and photo reception with the aforementioned fashion figures and campaign manager Jim Messina.

If that's too rich for your blood, the fashion line will be available at the Harpo pop-up shop afterward.

The collection includes items from 27 designers ranging from Marc Jacobs to Beyoncé, and features interpretations of Obama logos and images.

A similar event was held in New York City in January, hosted by Wintour and actress Scarlett Johanssen.
