General Motors is kicking off the upcoming Detroit auto show with a special event melding the worlds of fashion, celebrity and automotive design. Called GM Style, the first-ever event is set for Saturday, January 6, 2007, the night before the first show press day, and is being billed as a tribute to classic GM style combined with a celebration of the automaker's recent designs.
GM Style will take place inside a specially designed climate-controlled pavilion built specifically for the event near Detroit's Renaissance Center, the automaker's world headquarters. Said to be longer than a football field, the pavilion will act as the runway for the show.
At least seventeen vehicles will be shown, including the 2006 Camaro Concept (above), the classic 1951 Buick LeSabre Concept and recent GM hits including the 2007 Sky Red Line, among others.
Celebrity guests joining the vehicles for a walk-or drive-down the runway during the evening's festivities include Cheryl Hines, Vivica A. Fox, Petra Nemcova, and Danny Masterson. Not exactly an A-list group, but it's a decent gathering of stars to go along with the cars. GM says more celebrities are being confirmed.
