GLAMOUROUS NIGHT: It was a British invasion at Macy’s 30th annual Glamorama show and fundraiser on Friday night at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The event has raised $30 million to date for AIDS and HIV charities.
“It’s what we do. It’s fashion,” said Macy’s chief executive officer Terry Lundgren about the annual affair. “We were early in taking a stand against AIDS, and we are known for giving back to the communities we serve.” The San Francisco event will take place on Friday.
The Macy’s family, including Sean John designer Sean Combs, Material Girl model Georgia May Jagger, and the face of INC Camila McConaughey turned out to show their support. Sharon Stone, who has worked with Macy’s Passport for 16 years, also gave a speech before the show.
The British music was bumping as models stomped across the stage in Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, and Nicole Richie for Impulse, which launches Sept. 12. Pieces from W118 by Walter Baker, Tallia, Material Girl, Bar III, Sean John, Rachel Rachel Roy and Diesel were also on display as Big Ben, Abbey Road, and a double-decker bus filled the background.
R&B artist Robin Thicke, pop duo Karmin, and iHeartRadio Rising Star winners Megan and Liz performed in between runway shows. Afterwards guests moved to the nearby California Market Center for a post-party.
