One Night Only: Madonna at Macy’s

Actually, Madonna herself won’t be at Macy’s Westfield Century City, Main Floor, Level 1 tomorrow night from 6 to 8 p.m. But fans can still count on seeing eight of the singer’s most iconic outfits and saying hi to the superstar’s longtime costume collaborator Arianne Phillips. It’s all part of a special one-night-only pop-up event titled “Madonna’s Fashion Evolution.”

The Macy’s connection comes from the fact that the singer has for several years been selling through the department store chain a “Material Girl” clothing line designed with daughter Lola. The corresponding Twitter account @MaterialGirl currently has more than 80,000 followers. From the announcement:

Madonna personally handpicked eight of her favorite costumes from a vast archive of tour costumes and her personal collection for the exhibition. The cone bustiers were flown in from a Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit in Amsterdam, her “Like A Virgin” wedding dress is on loan from the Hard Rock Cafe, while the remaining items are from Madonna’s personal archives.

m_14e1acb9f34fa6e359c4943f033d7c06.jpg MySpace and PayPal have teamed up to create “donation widgets” that will allow the same people who hit your page up for drunken pictures of your ‘neathage to contribute to Breast Cancer Research funds. Or something like that.

To inspire the masses, MySpace and PayPal have enlisted a coterie of young things: Hayden Panettiere, The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Hilary Duff and Vanessa Hudgens.

All these stars have installed the widgets on their pages — and are helping to promote a contest that includes weekly prizes and $20,000 in cash.

So now you don’t have to feel completely dirty about perusing the pages of underage stars.

Power Of An Alert PR Rep

An exceptionally enterprising PR-type, Meredith Goldblatt, suggested we could capitalize on a certain NY Times story and run a piece about Variety’s “Power of Youth,” a benefit held Saturday at Universal Studios on behalf of St. Jude.

So, yeah, we’ll take the bait.

The benefit brought together the likes of Variety’s VP & Associate Publisher Brian Gott, actress Miley Cyrus, Variety’s President & Publisher Charlie Koones and actress Vanessa Hudgens (all pictured here in this shot by Jordan Strauss of WireImage.com

According to Goldblatt’s release:

The inaugural event is part of Variety’s new initiative to reach out to Hollywood’s next generation of entertainers, in the hopes of encouraging young people to become involved with humanitarian and philanthropic efforts.

And what a youngster-filled event it was: One of the highlights was a celebrity tricycle race.
