CHICAGO SHOW: Macy’s produced its tightly choreographed Glamorama “Fashion Rocks” show at Millennium Park in Chicago on Friday. The annual event, benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities, featured collections by the retailer’s staple brands Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and Diesel, as well as private labels INC International Concepts and Impulse. The show introduced the new men’s wear line by Ryan Seacrest, arriving in stores in September. Set to a Blondie “Rapture” remix, Weekend Max Mara showed models donning Deborah Harry-like bobs while wearing Eighties punk-inspired styles — asymmetric jackets and pencil skirts, graphic prints and leather frocks. Hello Kitty — with exuberant kids break-dancing around the stage wearing the line’s vibrant looks — received the biggest round of applause.
The star factor of the evening went to Jason Derulo, who performed his hit single “Talk Dirty” and latest release “Wiggle,” but Snoop Dogg was nowhere in the house.
