14 Feb Red Dress Collection 2018 | NYFW
The American Heart Association’s® Go Red For Women® Red Dress Collection® 2018 presented by Macy’s is an exclusive event where top designers, models and celebrities demonstrate their support for women’s heart health during New York Fashion Week. Founded by The Heart Truth®, the event reminds women of the need to protect their heart health, inspiring them to make a change because cardiovascular diseases claim the lives of about one woman every 80 seconds – unnecessarily. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiovascular diseases, including stroke, may be preventable with education and lifestyle changes. Go Red For Women encourages all women be informed, make the time to “Know Your Numbers” and inspire friends and loved ones to lead healthy lives.” – Excerpt from article click here.
The Red Dress Collection 2018 Fashion Show was hosted by Marisa Tomei, who also walked on the runway. The models on the runway included Adrienne Bailon Houghton, Cece Winans, Elisabeth Röhm, EnVogue (Cindy Herron-Braggs, Terry Ellis, Rhona Bennett), Ginger Zee, Grace Helbig, Kate Walsh, Kathy Ireland, Lea Salonga, Liz Hernandez, Lynn Whitfield, Marion Ross, Maye Musk, Melissa Joan Hart, Niki Taylor, Rachel Lindsay, Tatyana Ali and Zuri Hall. In the beginning of the show Lea Salonga performed a song (wow she has such an amazing voice), during the show Dj Harley Viera-Newton played the music for the runway, and the show ended with a performance by EnVogue. It was such an amazing experience to watch these amazing women come together and GO RED to support women’s heart health. It was such an honor to be able to attend this amazing show!
To the show I was wearing a gorgeous evening gown/dress by Lauren by Ralph Lauren that I got at Bloomingsdale’s and it is actually still available, yay! I tagged it down below for you guys. I chose a sparkly clutch by Lulu Townsend from DSW to match the sparkles from the dress. To top of the look (and to not freeze) I wore my gorgeous FAUX FUR (!!!) coat from White House Black Market.
This event was the perfect way to kick off New York Fashion Week on Thursday February 8th! Most pictures were taken with my phone, so I apologize about the quality. I hope you enjoy the pictures! Bisous, Joëlle
