News – to interview Dita Von Teese, MAC Viva Glam Spokesperson, at Macy’s Passport 2007, San Francisco

Published in: MAC Makeup

So Karen what are you doing Wednesday night?
Well, hmm, lets see, there’s the lovely vegetarian take out burrito that I plan to eat, and I have to charge my camera batteries, plus I gotta wax my ‘stache because I can’t be hairy when I’m interviewing MAC Viva Glam Spokes person Dita Von Teese.



Yes, yes, ya’ll… on Wednesday, September 19th will be heading to Macy’s Passport 2007 in San Francisco to rock you from American Express Evening and to interview Dita Von Teese, the queen of burlesque dancing and one of the faces of MAC’s Viva Glam line.

What’s Macy’s Passport?

Macy’s Passport is a charity fashion event, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

The fundraiser/fashion show’s raised $25 million in charity funds for HIV/AIDS organizations in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and brings together designers, celebrities and entertainers for three nights of fundraising, fashion and excitement.

Passport 2007 opens at Fort Mason Center on Tuesday, September 18th and Fashion Inform: HIV Prevention 101, a night just for Bay Area high school students, and continues with American Express Evening on Wednesday, September 19th and Gala Evening on Thursday, September 20th.


In addition to the fashion show, which includes designers like Calvin Klein, Mark Echo, Via Spiga, MAC and Levi’s), there will entertainment from Cirque du Soleil, celebrity choreographer Brian Friedman, the Spirit of Uganda, an award-winning African youth dance troop, and of course, the lovely miss Dita.

Should I ask Dita where I can buy a life-sized champagne glass to dance in? I’ve always wondered if that’s an item you have to special order.

    Don’t be scurred, girlfriend. I know you’ll do great. A little birdie told me that she’s really nice in person. 😉

  3. i looooove dita! so awesome – congrats!

  4. Karen says:

    thanks makeuplovesme! i love her too…not many can pull off the strong red lip/black liner like she can. plus, the girl can *dance*.

    how’s your weekend been? still recovering from fashion week?

  5. haha. yeah, i guess i made it clear how exhausted i was by that. lol, everyone keeps mentioning it! this weekend im relaxing and catching up, definitely needed.

  6. mej says:

    omg i love dita! she’s fab, gorge, and she’s got great skin! so the interview will be like pretty vs. pretty! congratulations karen!=)

  7. kia says:

    Hey Karen.. YAY! Can’t wait to read the interview!! congrats!

  8. Karen says:

    makeuplovesme, I know how you feel. Sometimes blogging feels like a job in itself…a job that goes on for 24 hours and 7 days a week! There certainly is no rest of the weary.

    Sometimes all I wanna do is watch the America’s Next Top Model marathon. 😉

  9. Karen says:

    Hi Mej,

    Nice to see you again! Yes, I’ve heard that Dita has really fantastic skin in person. I won’t get all up on her and inspect her pores, but I hope to verify this fact.

    And thanks for your congrats. Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!!!!

  10. Karen says:

    Hey miss Kia! So sorry I had to rush off the phone last week (teriyaki chicken was calling).

    Thanks for your congrats! I am super duper excited.

    How has your weekend been so far?

  11. Christine says:

    Ohh, I’m sure she’ll be nice! I’ve had such a great experience with all MAC-related people thus far, I can’t imagine anyone mean, that’s affiliated with MAC at a corporate level (see, I left room for the mean MAs!), lol.

    Hope your weekend is rockin’ thus far 🙂 I got all caught up in an ANTM marathon, and studying went right out the window!

  12. Karen says:

    oh no you didn’t! Isn’t that the season when Jael gets thrown in the pool by 50 cent?!?! LOLOL!

    Promise me you won’t get thrown in the pool when you start going to big fancy fashion parties…

  13. Christine says:

    Yep, it is! My boyfriend laughed when that part happened.

    I promise! No intentions of being THAT annoying 😉

  14. Karen says:

    How many hours have you subjected your man to ANTM? Has he started referring to his walk as “fierce” yet? It typicall happens around hour six, and I’m so not joking!

  15. Christine says:

    I think we went through (or I did) the entire marathon except the first episode or two episodes. We caught the tail end of the episode where Kathleen got eliminated for being dumb as rocks and kept watching. He retained manliness for a respectable time, but then he was like, “This is ridiculous, I kind of want to see what happens!”

  16. Karen says:

    You’re lucky he didn’t start to psychologically break down each model’s psychosis. El Hub loves to do that, and then when I call him on it he freaks out: “YOU’RE MAKING A 35 YEAR OLD MAN WATCH THIS AGAINST HIS WILL! WHAT CHOICE DO I HAVE?” lolol.

  17. Christine says:

    You know my boyfriend has reached his tolerance point when we debate over the good and bad qualities of who would make a better match for Bret Michaels on Rock of Love. Seriously. BTW, I Love New York 2 on October 6!! I think it’s the sixth… anyway, quite soon!

  18. Karen says:

    Ha ha ha, we did the same thing with I LOVE NY! El Hub was convinced that NY made a terrible mistake when she let go of Chance’s brother (the one with the long hair.) I think she should’ve never picked Tango because even though Chance was nuts he would’ve been perfect for her.

    And I can’t believe you and Rock of Love, ha ha ha! But then again I remember Bret Michaels when “Poison” was popular, when he was 50 pounds lighter and considerably less disgusting. I hope he finds true love though. You never know on VH1!

  19. Toya says:

    I love Dita, but I have to say that Brian Friedman looks unbelievably hot in that pic. Love him, too!

  20. Karen says:

    Hey Toya!

    I recall from reading your blog that you’ve got a thing for guys with shaved heads 😉

    And, yes, I’d have to agree with you, Brian Friedman is hot! Cute guys that can dance, HELLO!

  21. Toya says:

    Yes, I do. It’s a problem – a buff guy with a shaved head always makes me happy. Unless it’s Vin Diesel. I just don’t find him attractive.

  22. mej says:

    omg, i’m hooked on your site karen!=)

  23. Karen says:

    awesome, mej! those words are music to my ears. how has your week been so far?

  24. Karen says:

    yeah, vin diesel. he was always a little cro-magnon to me.

    now wentworth miller on prison break is another story…
