The Heart Truth show on Thursday evening was filled with celebrities and lots of people wearing red sequins (many of whom probably shouldn’t have been). The gowns worn by the celebrities will be auctioned off and the money used to raise awareness of heart disease in women.
I spotted Robert Verdi wearing a long blood-red jacket and white glasses perched on top of his head as usual. William H. Macy was front row looking proud of his gorgeous wife, Felicity Huffman (wearing Oscar de la Renta). She stopped walking half-way down the runway to make out with him. Poor pregnant Bethenny Frankel actually walked pretty well, but her Spanx were on full display, peeking out from her short Isabella Oliver dress.
Dara Torres, the Olympic swimmer, looked fierce in a sleek Rachel Roy. She carried her shoes and looked like she could crush perky Elisabeth Hassebeck (in Donna Karan) with her ripped arms. Joan Collins was there in Stephanie Rolland looking like, well, Joan Collins. Kim Kardashian’s assets were on display in Marchesa and Pauley Perrette was adorable in Rebecca Taylor. Heidi Klum ended the show in flowy chiffon Galliano.
Definitely the feel-good show of the day, despite the glut of one-shouldered red dresses. We say: There should be more cheering and hooting on the runway.
