British Glam

British Glam

The Orpheum Theatre was rocking this Friday night as the party of the year, Macy's Glamorama, kicked off with a fashionable bang. This year's theme was British Invasion, a timely one considering the Olympics are in full swing. The Twin Cities' trendiest arrived ready to party, many paying a playful nod to the theme with fascinators and oversized hats.

As the the crowd took in fall fashions from Donna Karan, Jean Paul Gaultier, Marc Jacobs, and Sean John, iconic songs from the past eight decades of British rock 'n' roll kept the show lively. Highlights included the over-the-top headwear featured in Marc Jacobs' line, hypnotic presentation and textural frocks by RACHEL Rachel Roy, and Donna Karan's sleek separates and leather accents. Performances by Robin Thicke and Karmin got everyone on their feet, especially when they performed their respective hit songs "Lost Without U" and "Brokenhearted."

The British-themed fun carried on at the Macy's rooftop with an array of food stations inspired by London's eclectic food scene and photo-ops with a true sentry from the Queen's Royal Guard, he came all the way from London to get cheeky with partygoers throughout the evening! Patron cocktails flowed as DJs spun chart-topping hits. Thankfully the rain held off just long enough to take in the hot summer night.
