Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama once again took over downtown Los Angeles this past weekend. The iconic fashion show celebrated it’s 30th year of raising awareness for HIV/AIDS. Featuring the theme “British Invasion: The Music Then. The Fashion Now!”, the event was the perfect combination of high energy performances and a showcase of affordable style. Chart-topping pop duo Karmin hit the stage with a little swagger-pop while Robin Thicke who had the audience singing to his hit “Lost Without You” brought his own swagger with a three-song set.
