LOS ANGELES – Fashion, art, dance and music came together on one stage at The Oprheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles for the 29th annual Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama 2011.
Multitalented singer, songwriter, producer and musician, Cee Lo Green, well known for his most recent hit “Forget You” closed out the show with an exciting finale.
There was also a special guest appearance by actress Sharon Stone who did a tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. The theme for the fashion show was “Artrageous” and included featured fashions from designers such as Armani Jeans, Calvin Klein, Papi, Tommy Hilfiger, Tracy Reese and more.
The annual event helped benefit AIDS Project Los Angeles and Project Angel Food.
“We are proud to support the ongoing programs provided to the community by AIDS Project Los Angeles and Project Angel Food,” said Martine Reardon, executive vice president of marketing and advertising for Macy’s.
Along with the Macy’s foundation, the fashion benefit has donated over $29 million to HIV/AIDS services, prevention, education and research over the years. “These organizations have a daily impact on those living with HIV/AIDS, providing services, financial support, education, meals and shelter,” said Reardon.
The Macy’s Passport Presents has grown into one of the largest and longest-running HIV/AIDS events of its kind since 1982. Past performers include Beyonce, Tina Turner, Queen Latifah, Ne-Yo and Jennifer Lopez.
