Nanette Lepore and Kerry Washington Host "Fashion Votes"

Fashion designer Nanette Lepore and actress Kerry Washington hosted the event “Fashion Votes” at Lepore’s new boutique on Melrose Avenue last night. Lepore, teamed with the Creative Coalition, believes strongly in the power of voting, and thus used last night’s boutique opening as a venue to encourage voter registration. The designer gave a series of interviews revealing the importance of being involved in the political process. Upon request by Lepore, Declare Yourself joined the effort by registering people to vote at the opening. Celebrity guests included Kerry Washington, Timberland, AnnaLynne McCord from Nip/Tuck, Amerie, Tom Arnold, Laurence Bender, Perrey Reeves, Kristin Renton and many more. Partygoers received Lepore’s VOTE bag, which decorates voting fashionably, thereby making politics trendy.
