Macy's Glamorama-Passport to an ARTrageous Night of Fashion, Art, and Music

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

I had the pleasure of attending Macy's Passport Presents Glamorama on September 23, a four city tour  featuring four evenings of haute fashion, hot music, and head spinning art. Highlighting the company's year-round commitment to give back, this year Macy's partnered with Project Angel Food to raise money for the fight against HIV/AIDS.

I had such a fun time at Glamorama and was thoroughly impressed with the theme and theatrics of art meets fashion meets music. The runway shows were artfully choreographed and keenly styled, highlighting the fall collections of designers such as Calvin Klein, Tracy Reese, and Rachel by Rachel Roy.  Amazingly talented young dancers including Bailey Munoz of America's Got Talent took to the stage, showcasing a rhythmic vision of hip hop and ballet. Special performances by Cee Lo Green and Far East Movement rocked the house and got everyone up and out of their seats-singing, dancing and vibing. Sharon Stone paid a beautiful tribute to Elizabeth Taylor describing her as “a great mother, a great grandmother and a great humanitarian” before Taylor’s grandsons Quinn Tivey and Tarquin Wilding stepped forward to say a few words about their grandmother. A long-time philanthropist, Taylor raised more than $29 million for HIV and AIDS causes during her 25 years as Macy’s Passport Founding Chair. The night fit the precise definition of charitable enertaining!

Of course, no LA event is ever complete without the requisite throng of celebrity attendees. Jennifer Love Hewitt looking lovely and sultry
