This just in! Cyndi Lauper will headline this year's Macy's Glamorama alongside MC Hammer, bringing the 80s to 2008 for the 10th anniversary of the event to benefit the Art Institute of Chicago. “Glamorama 2008 pumps it up ’80s style with bodacious fashion, bangin’ music and totally awesome entertainment, all with a modern twist,” said Jennifer Wilkins, Macy’s Trend Expert. “From the stellar show to our over-the-top post party, Glam guests will go back to the ’80s in style.” Designers this year will include, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan Collection, Celine, CNC Costume National, Just Cavalli, Ports 1961, SportMax and Tibi. Following the show, guests will attend yet another amazing post party on the 7th floor of Macy's on
State Street. Look out for oversized screens of 80s music videos, arcade lounges with Pacman and Donkey Kong and a Rubik's Cube lounge, all while enjoying a variety of yummy food options like pizza, sushi and even a full bruschetta bar. Watch out for those candy attendants who will roam the party with Pop Rocks, Hubba Bubba bubble gum, Nerds candy and Fruit Roll-Ups. We're ready to get our 80s on, now how about you?
