Against a backdrop of stunning visuals, British pop music and fall fashions, Macy's presented Glamorama at the Harris Theater on Aug. 10. Themed "The British Invasion: The Music Then. The Fashion Now," the night included a fashion show with 43 models and more than 150 outfits. It featured music by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and collections from Tommy Hilfiger, Jean Paul Gaultier, Material Girl, Bar III, Sean John, Rachel Roy and Donna Karan. Giant fur hats were worn by the Marc Jacobs' models; the Diesel segment showcased male models sporting underwear and wearing iconic British headgear such as Beefeater hats.
Produced by Myron Johnson, the show opened with YouTube sensations Megan & Liz Singer-songwriter-producer Robin Thicke headlined the event.
After a confetti-filled finale, the crowd moved to the Rooftop Terrace of Millennium Park for the fun-filled after-party. The Windsor Terrace's champagne lounge featured the "Queen's Jewels" in a Lucite case. In the Piccadilly Circus section, guests could enjoy multiple photo booths, Lancome makeup touch-ups, hors d'oeuvres and specialty drinks from one of 18 bars. DJ's kept the dance floors packed as photo-booth images of guests were flashed on a giant screen.
This was Glamorama's fourth year benefitting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana. Thus far, more than $700,000 has been raised to support the building of the world's largest Ronald McDonald House at 211 E. Grand. In the past 13 years, this event has raised more than $2 million to benefit local Chicago charities.
