On the evening of Wednesday, February 6th, LBS had the pleasure of attending The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection Show at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC, where we were amongst a sea of red dresses, lips, shoes, handbags and even red hair in support of the fight against heart disease. The Heart Truth campaign is sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. We blogged about National Wear Red Day last Friday, in support of The Heart Truth's mission to spread heart health awareness.
The show consisted of a plethora of stars including Toni Braxton, Wendy Williams, Kelly Osbourne, Gabby Douglas, Roselyn Sanchez, Minka Kelly, Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner to name a few. Designers of the striking dresses included a few of our favorite designers: Oscar de la Renta, Tadashi Shoji, Herve L. Leroux, Marc Bouwer, Carolina Herrera and Nicole Miller.
The energy in the room was at an all-time high as the lights dimmed and the show promoting heart health for all women began.
Front-rowers included the amazing Mr. Jay Manuel, runway coach extraordinaire Ms. Jay Alexander, and stylist to the stars June Ambrose, and songstress/reality star Adrienne Bailon.
The Jenners were in attendance! Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner walked the runway, all dressed in Badgley Mischka and might I add - Kendall worked it out on that runway!
My fellow Brit, Kelly Osbourne rocked the runway with her glorious lavender hair and tattoos on display, dressed in this slinky strapless Zac Posen.
Toni Braxton was most definitely my star of the night as I am aware of her battle with heart disease and have been a lover of her music since forever! I was excited to see her honored by closing the show. She beamed down the runway and worked it out in this stunning Herve L. Leroux red dress.
Doesn’t she look amazing?!
