Last year, around this time, Vogue editor Anna Wintour threw a $30,000-a-head dinner for President Barack Obama at her home on Sullivan Street in New York City. This year, the dinner (which looks like it's becoming an annual event) will be held on August 11th, again at Wintour's SoHo townhouse. Expected guests inclue Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Tory Burch, Alicia Keys, and Quentin Tarantino—each couple is shelling out a whopping $71,600 to attend.
