[I know, I know: We're talking about the dance–fashion connection AGAIN. But I can't help it, you guys! We just wrapped up a dance-y New York Fashion Week, and we're only a few days away from a New York City Ballet gala celebrating fashion, and my head is just exploding with dancefashiness. (Is "dancefashiness" a thing? Let's make it happen.)]
Last night, to send NYFW out in style, Macy's put on a fashion show of its own: "Macy's Front Row." And since Macy's is, well, Macy's, it was HUGE.
How huge? We're talking Madison Square Garden. We're talking performances by Jason Derulo, Nate Ruess and Thalía. We're talking looks from 10 different fashion lines.
And—fittingly, since part of the evening's proceeds went to the amazing Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS—we're talking dancing. Lots of dancing.

Even the models for Heidi by Heidi Klum—the supermodel's lingerie line—were dancing up a storm. And kudos to them, because dancing in teeny-tiny panties is no mean feat:
Miss out? Never fear: "Macy's Front Row" will be televised on E! Next Wednesday, September 23 at 8 pm EST. Tune in then for all the dancetabulousness!
