Danny Bunyavong at the Minneapolis and Chicago Macy’s Glamorama 2011

I see Danny at 1:30.

This is the third year Danny Bunyavong has taken part in the Macy’s Glamorama runway. Macy’s 2011 annual Glamorama benefit for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund was another blowout extravaganza with performances from Bruno Mars and Far East Movement and fashions from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Jean Paul Gaultier, Sonia Rykiel, Papi and more.  Danny modeled Armani Jeans at the Macy’s Glamorama 2011 show in Minneapolis.

It’s easy to prepare the summer rolls, and the mints and parsley were from my dad’s garden. I cooked the thin sliced pork, and wrapped with the rice paper sheets.
