Supporting women’s heart health has become a perennial favorite during New York Fashion week and the perfect way to kick off the season. This year’s American Heart Association’s “Go Red For Women” Dress collection presented by Macy’s was no exception. The event is an opportunity for top designers and celebrities to bring awareness to women’s heart health during the month of February. Some of the celebrities that came out to support was actress Alexa Pena Vega in Gustavo Cadile Candace, actress Cameron Bure in Badgley Mischka, actress Fran Drescher in La Petite Robe di Chiarra Boni, actresses and singers Lennon and Maisy in Stella BCBGeneration, Miss Universe 2012, Olivia Culpo in Marchesa, Today Show Host, Tamron Hall in Marc Bouwer and Ballerina Misty Copeland in David Meister.
As always, the incredibly joy and noise from all the fans as these leading ladies strutted down the runway felt more like fans cheering on their favorite sports team rather than fashion show. Each women made their time on the runway all their own. Misty Copeland twirled and kicked down the runway while Alexa Vega sung along to the music and kissed her husband Carlos Pene Vega halfway down the runway. Fittingly the show closed with a performance by Monica singing “Put a Little Love in Your Heart”.
