I love the Heart Truth Red Dress Collection for a couple of reasons. First of all, you get to see dresses by all different designers whose shows might be hard to get into, so it’s sort of democratizing and also a bit of a “best of” of fashion week. Secondly, the celebrity models are always fun. Okay, sometimes the term “celebrity” is used a little loosely, like Kim Kardashian and Raven Simone. But a chance to see Heidi Klum on the runway is always a treat, especially when she’s wearing a beautiful John Galliano gown, one of my favorites of the evening. Kardashian’s Grecian-style Marchesa gown was another standout. I felt like I should love Estelle’s Zac Posen gown, it was very reminiscent of his Fall ’09 Collection which I adored, but I just wasn’t feeling it.
As always, the runway show is put on to raise awareness and funds (many of the dresses will be auctioned off) for heart health in women. Find out more info here.
