Re: New Pete`s photos - 29 September 2005

These photos are from the Macy's Passport Fashion Week, held lately, i read about it somewhere.See below:



PASSPORT 2005
No celebrities needed when the hotties are homegrown
Carolyne Zinko, Chronicle Staff Writer

Sunday, September 18, 2005


When it comes to celebrity, the Bay Area just isn't all that starstruck, which may be a good thing for the 23rd annual Macy's Passport fashion show and AIDS fundraiser, "Live '05," at Fort Mason this week.

At Macy's Passport show in Los Angeles, Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone and Pete Sampras will share the limelight. But the San Francisco show doesn't have any celebrities lined up. Turns out that's icing on the cake that isn't always needed where purists for the cause are found.

"We can hold our own, we don't need big stars to come up from L.A. to give us strength and cachet -- we carry it on our own,'' said Robert Fountain, a co-chairman of the fashion show's gala night.

"We wanted it to be back to the roots, back to the home, back to what it's taking care of.''

He was right: The $1,000-a-ticket gala night sold out weeks ago.

The show is one of the longest-running fundraisers for HIV/AIDS research, prevention, treatment and care programs in the nation. Macy's has raised early $20 million for the cause since 1988. Proceeds from the local three-day show running Sept. 20-22 will go to more than 60 local organizations that help men, women and children with or at risk for HIV, such as AIDS Legal Referral Panel, Asian Pacific Islander Wellness Center, Continuum, Project Open Hand and others.

No matter what the annual theme, or who promises to come (founding superstar Elizabeth Taylor's big no-show a few years back served as grand drama on an already theatrical night), the Macy's Passport show is one of the most important events on the San Francisco social calendar, and one of the most consistently attended fundraisers year after year.

Let's face it: There are fashion shows, and then there is Macy's Passport.

"It's the only show that's really over the top,'' said Dolly Chammas of Hillsborough, the other gala night co-chairwoman. "It's not just a fashion show, it's an event.''

In New York City, Paris or Milan, guests wait hours to watch high-fashion runway shows that last less than 15 minutes. At Passport, guests are entertained for an hour with vignette after vignette featuring various clothing by various designers, and sometimes musical performances by entertainers such as Liza Minnelli. The famous lingerie segment brings down the house -- with a bit of beefcake, thanks to hunky male models in tight whites, thrown in for good measure. (You don't think straight women are the predominant population at this fundraiser, do you?)

The three-night show includes a teen night Sept. 20 with sex education (kids rolled condoms onto cucumbers last year); an opening night on Sept. 21 (tickets run $75 and $150) with cocktail reception and food by Bay Area restaurants, as well as live a onstage auction; and the VIP gala night Sept. 22 in a themed setting where wealthy contributors to rub elbows before watching the models hit the runway.

This year's show features men's and women's sportswear and underwear by Calvin Klein; Dulce de Leche, a Latin-inspired collection by young designers Carlos Mejia, Luis Toro and Rafael Paris, with Mejia and Toro flying in from Miami; bohemian and furry fall styles by Jennifer Lopez's JLO line presented in a takeoff on "West Side Story" with some of Lopez's dancers coming up from L.A.; and form-fitting gowns by Wayne Clark in jewel tones with feathers in the Bollywood-inspired makeup segment by M.A.C. cosmetics, based on Broadway's "Bombay Dreams.''

On the local front, the clothing of eight rising fashion stars will be featured as well -- student designers from the Academy of Art University.

They are: Amy Fink, Christine Welcher, Hazel Vera, Darcey Barber, Emily Ginn, Jeeyn Shim, Sara Kalata, Staci Snider and Steven Avendis Moomjian.

The gala night has shifted in recent years from a sit-down black-tie dinner to grazing and cocktails. This year, a cavernous hall at Fort Mason will be transformed into a "mansion,'' said Chammas, with separate "rooms" for guests to wander -- a foyer, a library, a terrace, a garden -- and nosh on appetizers served on plates by waiters, as well as sip signature drinks.

Those who don't go in for fashion shows can help raise money by shopping for the cause -- both online and in person.

EBay for the third year is assisting Macy's in fundraising by allowing shoppers to bid on clothes, accessories, services and more at www.ebay.com/macyspassport, with proceeds going to beneficiaries.

Items vary from a limited edition Triumph Bonneville motorcycle by British clothing and home accessories designer Paul Smith to five hours of pampering at 77 Maiden Lane salon to a month of birthday cakes for Project Open Hand.

In person, shoppers can help raise money for the cause from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Macy's at Union Square, in Corte Madera and at Valley Fair in Santa Clara on Sept. 23 and 24. The in-store event includes makeovers, cooking demonstrations and special discounts.

For more information on tickets, in-store events and beneficiaries, go to www.macys.com.

Re: New Pete`s photos - 29 September 2005

Here is some more information from where those photos came.



In a rare public appearance by former tennis great, 14-time Grand Slam winner Pete Sampras of the US is seen with actress Sharon Stone as she auctions off a tennis lesson by Sampras and lunch at Sampras’ home for charity at the Macy’s Passport 05 fashion show in Santa Monica, California, yesterday. Sampras retired in 2003.





The evening opened with a live auction, and Sharon Stone made the most of her job as auctioneer. The first time Stone’s dress came undone, her assistant stepped in to button her up. It happened again, and she took advantage of the situation, auctioning off the fastening duties for $500.

Pete Sampras got caught up in the auction excitement, and impulsively threw in a private tennis lesson followed by lunch at his house. When pushy auctioneer Stone got the bidding up to $17,500, she brought the champ up onstage, took him aside and asked if he’d throw in a second identical package. Sampras turned to us and muttered, “She’s going to ask for my first-born next”. Stone sold lesson number two for another $17,500.

The evening included several other fashion shows, and Wilmer Valderrama and Venus Williams were on hand. Elizabeth Taylor was unable to attend.

Re: New Pete`s photos - 29 September 2005

thanks a lot greg for the photos, but poor pete, how come he loses so many hairs , he is just 34

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Thanks Greg for the pix and angiel the info.

Mimi, men losing hair are not that bad as most of the time, indicating their testosterone is still running high.

Mimi, losing your hair has nothing to do with your age.
