Celebs decked out in red graced the runway at the Heart Truth show, a multi designer show that raised awareness about heart disease. First Lady Laura Bush wore a ruby toned Bill Blass skirt suit, hearkening the suit trend for fall. Stars like tennis great Billie Jean King, Lauren Hutton and Kelly Ripa donned red ensembles by BCBG Max Azria, John Bartlett and Perry Ellis.
The Heart Truth show runs through the end of Fashion Week, with celebrity-modeled designs by Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs and Vera Wang slated to appear. The standout trend was goddess-inspired gowns featuring one-shoulder design, modeled by Kim Cattrall for Carolina Herrera and Rachael Ray for Donna Karan. Kelly Ripa looked resplendent in a fiery red Diane von Furstenberg beaded wrap dress. All in all, onlookers were treated to a red-hot sneak preview of the Fashion Week trends to come, all for a worthy cause.
