Seeing red? The latest edition of the Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection fashion show took place last night to support heart health awareness. An inspiring group of actors, entertainers, musicians, socialites and athletes took to the runway to support the cause. Each model was paired with a top fashion designer who provided a red dress from their collection.
Miss Universe (the one Steve Harvey didn't originally announce) Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach strolled out in my favorite dress of the night by Carmen Marc Valvo.
The crowd absolutely loves classic tv ladies. The biggest cheers of the night went to Florence Henderson (aka Mrs. Brady) who vamped it up with almost burlesque moves, even pulling up a front row guest to kiss him on the cheek. Nanny Fran Drescher hammed it up for laughs with an act putting on her make up and mugging for the cameras with a heart shaped box. Marilu Henner looked impossibly gorgeous as ever in her gown.
Modern ballet icon Misty Copeland twirled her way down the catwalk wearing David Meister. Divas from the show Empire and R& B singer Monica glammed it up as well. Monica closed the show with a powerhouse performance wearing Dennis Basso.
Each model had a backdrop onscreen that showed a quote of why they participated in this event and inspires them to heart health. Some had very personal stories. 1 in 3 women is affected by heart disease, a fact that many people don't realize as there is still a perception that it is man's disease.
If the Go Red for Women show didn't give you enough stylish reasons to take care of yourself, then it's time to do it on your own!
