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.

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.

yep. I also notice that he lost some weight because it is reported that he will play the seniors' tour because he is already tired from playing golf and poker. However even tough he lost some weight, he is also losing his hair :tape: .Hair today, gone tomorrow... hope not ;)

An interviev with Pete Sampras (1 October 2005):

SECOND SERVE: Pete Sampras - petepage
by JAMES MARTIN Oct 01 '05


A year ago, Pete Sampras couldn't even contemplate picking up a tennis racquet. The years at the top of the game had taken their toll, and he was burned out.

Funny how time changes things. When we caught up with him recently, the 34-year-old Sampras, who'd just moved into a new house in Beverly Hills, Calif., said that he was contemplating getting back into the game. Not that he'll have a ton of time on his hands: He has a 2-year-old son, Christian, and a newborn, Ryan Nikolaos, with his wife, Bridgette Wilson.

Are you going to play the senior tour?
"I'm reasonably open to it. I'm not practicing, not really training, but I think at some point I do see myself playing senior events in the States. It's taken me awhile to get to the point where I can even entertain the idea, but now I see playing as a way to keep me busy and focused."

There's a lot of new blood on the senior tour-players who take it more seriously. Is that part of the reason you'd like to compete again?
"Actually, no. I don't want to get into a situation where I'm grinding out matches. I just want to do it for fun. To grind out matches against someone like Jim Courier, who's a rival-and we've had competitive matches in the past-that's out of me. Those days are over. I don't have the competitive juices like some of the guys on the senior tour. But it'd be fun to see everyone again, though I wouldn't go to play to win."

So what have you been doing with your time?
"I'm playing a lot of golf and I've gotten into the poker craze. It's taken me a couple of years to get to the point where I think I've played enough golf and poker. Now it's time to find other things that are more fulfilling, like tennis. [Golf and poker] are fun for a while, but you come to a point where they get a little thin. I'm not going to get a job. But most professional tennis players, after they retire, eventually go back to tennis-it's what they do, it's who they are. That's the road I'm heading down."

What's your golf handicap?
"Six. I'm basically an athlete playing golf, not a golfer.
I don't have all the nuances of my stroke fine-tuned. I play for fun, sometimes I have a little bit of a gamble. But I'm not like Mark McGwire, who has a hitting coach. I thought about getting really serious about golf, but it didn't seem fulfilling enough."

What's your poker game?
"Texas Hold'em. I used to see poker on ESPN years ago and I'd ask, 'What is this doing on TV?' But I started to get interested and learned the game, and now I play a house game once a week."

Would you be interested in doing some commentating on TV?

"Potentially. I'd want to be good at it. I'd have to work at it. I'd like to do Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. I do miss Wimbledon. But I'm not ready to do a lot of traveling, going over to Europe-that's one trip I don't miss. But I will go back to Wimbledon."

Do you follow the pro game?
"I watch the majors. I'm up to date, but not on a week-to-week basis."

What are your thoughts on Roger Federer?
"He's head and shoulders above everyone else. He's got a great game, great attitude. He's all about winning and letting his racquet do the talking."

Can anyone touch him?
"I don't see anyone challenging him. Safin-he's got the game. When he's on, he can hold his own against Federer, but mentally he's years behind. Hewitt, Roddick-they're not good enough."
