Oh, that's it, Macy's. Not long ago it was Justin Bieber drawing shrieks and panic from crowds of overly excited women — and bored, confused expressions from some of their chaperones — at the Herald Square location. Last night, Macy's stuck it to New York's female public again, by having Rafael Nadal over to pose alongside giant posters of his own shirtless spectacularness, otherwise known as his new Armani advertisements. WWD reports 400 fans showed up:

After taking the train into the city from New Jersey and waiting an hour in the flagship, an autograph-seeking teenage fivesome from the Ramsey Tennis Team were armed and ready with tennis balls. While a few harped on his athletic skills and likability, Lauren Webb cut straight to the chase, “And he’s hot.”
