Manhattan’s wintry streets were aburst with balloons, bright colours and big names for the 84th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Over three million spectators lined the streets and an estimated 50 million viewers watched at home as celebs, cheerleaders and entertainers paraded through the streets and culminated outside the original Macy’s store in Herald Square.
Embracing the Thanksgiving spirit, as well as the cold, a touring Kylie Minogue stood stylish as ever atop of a float in a boucle tweed and fur jacket from the Chanel AW10 collection. Luxe leather knee-high boots, skinny black trousers and a tuban-style knitted hat completed the look as she waved to spectators, her hands gloved in leather and bejeweled with large crystal rings.
A Burberry shearling-lined black coat was the winter warmer of choice for Kanye West. With his trademark statement sunglasses and a bandana tied around his head, Kanye was all smiles leaning from the Big Apple float.
Jessica Simpson greeted the crowds in a nude embellished coat and cosy earmuffs. And Joan Rivers played dress up with her daughter and broadcaster Melissa, the two comediennes wearing Ice Queen gowns and tiaras to parade down Manhattan’s famous streets.
A spectacle of epic proportions!
