Proof that our sisters at Racked NY don't mess around: right now they're camped outside of Macy's flagship in Herald Square for the Material Girl (Madonna's clothing line) launch. It's pretty awesome, really: "There are three models dressed like Madonna circa Desperately Seeking Susan standing outside the door. Multiple camera crews are interviewing excited line-waiters. The crowd is a mix of young-ish girls and parent/kid combos. I'm sandwiched between two moms who are supposedly here for their daughters, but I think that's a beard."
