Hippie chicks ruled the Anna Sui runway on Wednesday, but another kind of radical chic was in the air backstage after the show. Sarah Sophie Flicker had shown up to cheer on her Citizens Band cohort Karen Elson, and naturally—given that Flicker was proudly wearing an Obama pin—talk between the two friends quickly turned to the previous night’s primary results. “After fashion week is over, we really have to figure out how to get out there and make something happen,” Flicker exhorted Elson, before dashing back to the photo shoot from whence she’d come. “You know, back in England,” Elson said later, “my brother indoctrinated me into Labor Party politics when I was just a kid. But I have to give Sarah Sophie credit for getting me into American politics. I’m so fascinated by this election, I really am.” Elson confessed that she’s not as annoyed with her adopted city of Nashville as Flicker thinks she is. “I’m not mad at Nashville for going for Hillary, not at all. I mean, I love Obama, don’t get me wrong, but Hillary’s pretty great, too. Frankly, I don’t care who wins the election—as long as it’s a Democrat.”
