Charice at Macy’s 150th Birthday Gala Celebration

Charice at Macy’s 150th Birthday Gala Celebration

charice82 75x75 Charice at Macys 150th Birthday Gala CelebrationPlenty of celebrities among them Charice Pempengco, Sean Diddy Combs, Eva Mendes, Jessica Simpson, Martha Stewart, Tommy Hilfiger, Clinton Kelly, Kenneth Cole, Ming Tsai, Tyler Florence and Todd English have turned out to New York’s Gotham Hall for cake and fireworks  to celebrate 150 years of iconic US retailer Macy’s.

Even the Empire State Building got in on the act, being lit red in honor of its historical neighbor, while the store’s 34th Street homeland is being dubbed “R H Macy Way” for the day to commemorate the retailer’s founding father.

“It’s amazing to consider that Macy’s was doing business before many great brands like General Electric, Coca Cola and Ford Motor Company were even born,” Terry J Lundgren, Macy’s Inc’s chairman, president and ceo tells The Daily. “The longevity of the Macy’s brand, its place in American culture, and its legacy of serving customers for five generations are extraordinary.”

She sang “All By Myself”, “And I Am Telling You” with David Foster playing the piano. She was introduced by David as a young discovery by himself & Oprah and announced that before she turns 17 years old, he will launch her album.

She will be leaving tomorrow night for LA for another show with David Foster.

    it’s just a matter of personal clothing preference. actually, I like her dress her. and I’m a person who is into the fashion thing as well. meaning, I know what clothes are ideal for such occassions. the color itself shows vibrance rather than the casual autumn sunrise that has become a standard for the autumn season. it identifies the person rather than season. so which one you think that is more important? season or person?

  5. Heeeeeeey folks greetings from Regina,Sask.Canada.
    Here’s my feedback about Charice Performance Outfit.
    Re: Blue …..to me this is business logic
    at one point we should remember charice was discovered with her favorite rosepink or babypink get up…her trademark
    right (finks )lol…for the Filipino communities and all Charice followers…I think these music business moguls would like to break this. our mindset has to be shifted that out. Remember this words which has been repeatedly said By David Foster…Charice has morhped to be a beautiful butterfly now…she can fly and spread her wings …whatever she wanted.
    ” The Star Is Born” not in the Philippines but here in North
    American Soil, colour schemes make sense to me.
    She now belongs to the upper Class Society and yet she remained humble and very down to earth Filipino at heart.Charice !

    I don’t care about fashion…Charice is performing to show off her talent, she can wear anything she wants as long as it is not revealing.

    For me, the most important news is the launching of Charice ALBUM BEFORE SHE TURNED 17!!! I can not wait for that day…in fact, I was already imagining what kind of songs DF is working on for Charice. Maybe, a powerful love song? Fast beat? A song that will cater to different age group? Maybe DF will include the ‘Dreamgirls anthem’ in her first album, just guessing! I believed it is his favorite song by Charice.

    Charice, I always include you in my prayers. More Blessings!

    Maybe, DF’s decision to give her first debut album an earlier start came after getting encouraging feedback as well from Clive Davis and Quincy Adams (or he just slipped his tongue in his enthusiasm? Ooops!). Anyway, Charice has been consistent in eliciting positive and heart-warming emotional responses from her enchanted audience. Even at her age, she has gathered legions of fans in all age groups from 3 to 100 all over the world.

    But coming out with a record in less than 8 months can be very grueling for everybody involved should this be true. So Cha, your Wowness, have that fitness regimen in place, eat the right foods, find time for beauty rest, and take care of your voice. Ths next rollercoaster ride can be more tortuous. A definite THRILLER indeed! Bwa!ha!ha!ha!ha! Happy Holloween to everyone!

    Ladies and Gentlemen!!!

    I am going out on a mission to start BLEEPING people’s negative remarks…Hehe! These fashion statements are starting to sound like a political debate. If you guys want to do that, then go watch Obama and McCain battle it out. This is a fan site. I thought fan sites are about expressing our love, joy and happiness for the star we admire.

    Negative remarks or comments on fashion or a person’s outer appearance is not positive constructive criticism. In fact it is damaging to anyone’s self esteem. It is tough enough already to go through our natural trials in life. And our trials of life is what makes us stronger with some positive uplifting along the way, that helps us overcome each hurdles of life.

    We all have different taste and we all have our favorite corners of Macy’s stores…hehe. I know I do and some corners I wouldn’t even go to…haha. That doesn’t mean I have the best taste in clothes either..

    When you lift, praise, and accept people for what or who they are, that is positive criticism. By lifting someone up, it brings them up to want to strive to do his/her best in achieving a goal.

    So, keep it positive folks! Charice already has her own mother to guide her through life and real top of the line professionals to handle her career. So, be thankful that Charice is in great hands by God and all the people she is blessed with to take care of her career.

    So, if you guys start seeing BLEEP in your comments, that is from me GM, and will have all moderators also BLEEP out negative comments. We are removing all the negative vibes that ruins the presence of peace and positive solidarity in all of us.

    Love you all! Please, don’t get mad at me if you have been BLEEPED. Just want to bring back the good clean fun in here..

    Sincerely,
    GM

    Here’s an excerpt from an article on WWD.com:

    “The crowd was wowed by huge projections of the original Macy’s on 14th Street, a high-octane performance by Alex Da Silva and Alien Ramirez from the hit show “So You Think You Can Dance” and singing by Michael Feinstein and 16-year-old Charice, who was discovered on YouTube by Oprah Winfrey and David Foster and is working on an album.”

    Here’s the link:

    But I had to sign up for a trial subscription to read the full article. NOTE: DON’T SIGN UP! The interesting part of the article I already copied here. No pictures of Charice anywhere with the article or in the slideshow. Sigh.

    for admin or for any one who knows, why is abs-cbn totally ignoring charice’ participation in carousel of hope and Macy’s celebration? these are major events yet Philippine media is disturbingly quiet about them.

    a lot of her fans have no access to the internet. they merely rely on the TV networks for news on charice. it’s a pity a lot of her fans are missing out on such important milestones in charice’s very promising international career

    OK, Guys and Gals!

    Enough. Apologies for my part in continuing this discussion. Thank you for all your comments, but We will never agree on this issue of dress.

    Case in point (bordering on OFF TOPIC!): A friend and I used to go to Qigong class together. I wore my favorite karate pants all the time. It was comfortable; I liked the way the fabric softly hung around my hips and I thought I moved gracefully in them. I wore the pants so often that the color was now more gray than black. One day, my friend took one disgusting look at my karate pants and chided thus: “Stop wearing those pants! It’s not good Feng Shui!” (This she said to me who happens to be a Feng Shui practitioner, among other things). I was stunned at the ferocity with which she expressed herself AND amused. Yes, we’re still friends, but I found out we do not share the same ‘fashion sense.’

    So enough already, OK? CHARICE CAN DRESS HERSELF ANY WAY SHE WANTS. Next comment on this issue, I will personally delete with no further ado. Understood? Thank you.

    Wishing you all the best,

    KV

    For crying out loud – she is only 16 and even BIG famous hollywood celebrity – they could have worst dress ever. Its not new in Hollywood.
    Well, if someone criticize Charice about Fashion then that MEANS She is BIG TIME CELEBRITY now. Looks like the PAPARAZZI has been following her.

    Here is my take on Charice wardrobe at Macy’s. Charice is now a celebrity, becoming very busy indeed in performing to well known celebrities, millionaires, philanthropist, hollywood producers and others. Varied opnion, pros and cons on her dress. If some say she looked bad in this one instance, that is part of the game. One in twenty occasion, is not bad, a dress can looked good on how the photo was taken or the mood of the beholder in that one instance.

    Also, as a celebrity, I m sure, besides Charice there are always fashion experts on their fields to take care of her dress, make up, shoes and even hairstyle for free. In Macy’s, I am sure one of macy’s fashion consultant selected that dress, bags, shoes and what have you from their celebrity or models demo stockroom -gratis to Charice. Macy and Bloomingdale have loads of clothes to choose from. In the Oscar red carpet , besides lending or giving those fabulous gowns, they even lend jewelries costing millions as
    advertisements but to be showcased by these superstars.

    From Charice herself, she mentioned when she appeared on Oprah, her wardrobe, hairstyle,, makeup eveything was done by Oprah fashion experts.
    This is now true in her every appearances now as she now has a “professional management team” to rely on besides the opinion of the fashion consultant of the sponsor, as in this case, Macy’s.

    Peace and let us move on.

    I agree with Yellowknife46. That blue is not for autumn and not for an evening gala affair. She could have worn red or black or orange like the one she wore at Agassi’s red carpet. Because we love her so much that we want to protect her from being criticized not only by the haters but more so by the media.

    I was focused on Charice’s singing ability until these comments about her fashion style. Here’s my take on her wardrobe. I think that there’s nothing wrong on the style of her dress she’s worn here at Macy’s except that that color is suited for summer. If you really want to package yourself in North America or in any country with four seasons for the most part, there’s sort of like a color scheme each time. I like bright blue what she’s wearing very much but that’s best worn on a summer not fall. My two cents worth. Peace to everyone. :)

    “nothing wrong about charice fashion? they can wear anything she want too or her fashion team like her to dress up whatever outfit looks good her…Isnt not a problem here at all! Every one has thier own style/taste and color…Just be respectful co-fellow…Infact, she is still very beautiful on that outfit…She is still young fresh little girl and fashion is not that big deals at all..Just listen her voice and forget about fashion…Not all places here in America are the same season or temperature called ”” cold or warm”…If you go to Ohio or the rest of the state started getting colder but if you go somewhere in Texas or california , or the rest of other state they still in warm weather… have peaceful mind about fashion…
    Fashion not make your hungry belly full…”

    Yellowknife’s final word on this issue:

    October 30th, 2008 at 12:29 pm

    “I guess the topic about fashion still won’t die. That’s the beauty of this kind of forum. Freedom of expression. I think this is a healthy debate and nothing to be emotional about nor make one sound like in a fighting mode. There’s nothing disrespectful that I see here in my opinion. I believe Charicemania ain’t all about Martial law rule, are we? I remember the elders saying that it’s all about suppression under Martial law in the Philippines.”
