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 â€˜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 www.makeupandbeautyblog.com 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.
