Once again Glamorama returns to Minneapolis to fuse local talent with national star power, all for a good cause. This year's look is fantasy-themed, so expect some wood nymphs, butterflies, and whimsical nature elements, all with a little sparkle. The event opens with a theatrical performance and runway show created by Project Runway designer Chris March and So You Think You Can Dance's Brian Friedman. A fashion segment choreographed by local luminary Myron Johnson will feature threads by Jean Paul Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Marc Jacobs, Sonia Rykiel, Tommy Hilfiger, and others. Musicians Macy Gray (pictured) and Mike Hutchinson will create the live soundtrack for the evening. The post-party celebration on the eighth floor of Macy's includes glow-in-the-dark dancers, a bar built around a tree trunk, and Xbox 360 games on a huge LED video wall. Proceeds benefit the Children's Cancer Research Fund.
