Hollywood and fashion are inseparable. The red carpet is one of the highlights of any gathering of stars and this time was no different. Perhaps the only difference was the fact that the red carpet was on a runway and not outside a premiere or award show.
Called the Heart Truth Red Dress Collection, the fashion show was not only the kick off for the New York fashion week, it was also held to raise awareness of women and heart disease. First Lady, Laura Bush, the national ambassador of Heart Truth, narrated the opening of the charity event. A red book opened up at the head of the runway and Kim Cattrall walked onto the red carpet wearing a beautiful Carolina Herrera gown.
The rest of the ladies who walked down the runway were just as gorgeous and curvaceous. These were real women walking down the runway. The group included actors Angela Bassett and Phylicia Rashad, American Idol runner-up Katherine McPhee, celebrity chef Rachael Ray, astronaut Mae Jemison, athlete Billie Jean King – who got a standing ovation for her stylish and very sporty look complete with sneakers, and supermodels Helena Christensen and Alex Wek.
