Backstage at Glamorama

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Model down! It’s a long day for the tall, beautiful, skinny  models from all over the U.S. who come to Minneapolis to appear in Macy’s Glamorama fall fashion extravaganza. Those poor, poor things had to report to the Orpheum Theatre at 8 a.m. this morning and as one told me, strumming his guitar by the stage door: “We’re on lock down!”

What’s really disgusting: The Glamorama models are as nice as they are gorgeous.

And right now: they’re loading up on CINNAMON ROLLS!

The models are in hair and makeup for their afternoon dress rehearsal with Bruno Mars and Far East Movement. Sneak preview: Lancome’s National Makeup Artist Alex Sanchez is creating a watercolor inspired look, with pinks and purples to accent Glamorama’s “Artrageous” theme this year. The key to making these faces last through showtime tonight: Primer.

Signing off until show time. I’ve got more, er, interviews to conduct…

You’ll want to be there – if for no other reason than to see how well they can pull it off without much of a local team left.
