NYFW: Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection


On Wednesday night, celebrities, patrons, heart health advocates and fashion aficionados alike gathered at the Hammerstein Ballroom to celebrate the annual Heart Truth’s Red Dress collection fashion show. Organized by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute and sponsored by Diet Coke, the annual Heart Truth Red Dress collection show features premiere designer red dresses adorned by an array of prominent celebrities who strut down the runway in support of heart health initiatives.

This year’s celebrity roster included stars like actress Christie Brinkley (who tripped down the runway but recovered beautifully by kicking off her heels and continuing her signature stride), on-air personality Aisha Tyler, VJ & reality star La La Vasquez-Anthony, music legends Gloria Estefan and Chaka Khan and more!

Celebs spotted front row included iconic actress and Broadway star Phylicia Rashad as well as Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps who met his mother Debra Phelps at the end of her runway walk with a kiss. Too cute! --Christina Brown
