As November 6th aka US Election judgement day nears, celebrities of all stripes have been pledging their allegiance to their preferred candidate. Since the beginning of the race we’ve seen LiLo flip-flopping her way into the Romney camp, Marc Jacobs create an ‘I bark for Obama’ dog t-shirt and Clint Eastwood play with an invisible chair at the Republican National Convention.
Beyonce wearing Erika Pena hoops
Amongst the POTUS’ many A-list fans, super couple Beyonce and Jay-Z has been particularly supportive – and in a pointed sartorial flourish Mrs Carter decided to work some Obama bling ahead of the big day at the polls.
Sporting a pair of gold hoops featuring a drop charm reading ‘BAMA’ – the hoop is the O, geddit?- Beyonce wore her politics on her sleeve as she enjoyed a sunset dinner with her husband and mum Tina Knowles at Giorgio Ristorante in Battery Park, New York. The earrings were created by jewellery designer Erika Pena and come in both silver and gold from the princely sum of $28 (£17.50). Beyonce teamed her statement hoops with a low key look of leather look jeans, Isabel Marant Beckett trainers and ribbon boucle knit from L’Agence.

Last month Bey and Jay hosted a successful fundraiser for the Prez drumming up a reported $4 million for the Obama re-election cause. Joking with the rapstar, Obama said at the event "Jay-Z now knows what my life is like. We both have daughters. And our wives are more popular than we are ... So we've got a little bond there. It's hard, but it's OK." Obama also offered the new mum some support by telling Cleveland’s Z107.9 radio audience, “I made sure that Jay-Z was helping Beyoncé out [with the baby], and not leaving it all with Beyonce and the mother-in-law." The Obamas and the Carters – that’s one double date we’d love to crash!
