There was an explosion of color and energy at San Francisco’s Orpheum Theatre last night, as dance, fashion, art, and music came together for Macy’s annual Glamorama event. Benefiting various HIV/AIDS charities, the show encompassed presentations of various Macy’s label fashions, dance routines directed by choreographer Myron Johnson, and musical performances by well-known pop artists Far East Movement and Bruno Mars. In addition to the entertainment, Kathy Ireland spoke in tribute to the late Elizabeth Taylor and all of her AIDS activism over the years. Naomi and Tarquin Wilding, two of Taylor’s grandchildren, shared a brief sentiment as well.
The womenswear lines covered all the bases with Bohemian separates, sophisticated styles, and luxe gowns, providing casual and evening looks for the eclectic Macy’s woman. Menswear stuck to variations of a sleek, dapper, and urban élan, with a crowd-pleasing finish of undergarments.
For a more detailed, visual, and informative look at the Glamorama fashions and fun, continue on.

Visions of riveting rouge rule the runways.
Last fall, neutrals overwhelmed single-toned outfits with slinky separates and luxurious furs. This year, the trend comes back around in full force with one major revision: the electrifying red hue that permeates almost every collection in some form or another. Mixing textures and variations of the bold color prove popular at design houses such as Rodarte and Elie Tahari, where gradients go head to toe and back again in maroon to cherry-red shades. Slim silhouettes, infinity scarf toppers, and belted waists make the looks relevant and sensual, perfect for any modern day woman in search of a compelling and showstopping effect.
