We dropped into the Annual Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection 2017 show presented by Macy’s in NYC, hosted by Katie Holmes. Check out the scene!
Oh, if only every fashion show could be as fun as the Red Dress Collection, presented by Macy’s. Indeed, the energy was red-hot as a the show opened with host Katie Holmes (Dawson’s Creek, All We Had) welcoming guests to the annual event, created by The Heart Truth and now maintained by The American Heart Association. Go Red For Women has been an on-going opportunity designed to bring attention to the importance of women’s heart health. The Red Dress Collection is a chance for designers, models, celebrities, and health advocates to come together and give a voice (and nod to style) to heart health awareness.
Katie Holmes stunned in a Marchesa dress with sheer and ornate detailing. Models to walk the runway of the Hammerstein Ballroom included Bonnie Somerville in a fun and flowy gown that was cut just above the floor, allowing her have an energetic and glamorous strut, almost dancing with excitement. Lauren Holly made an appearance in a shapely and organic dress that accented her body, presenting herself with enough camp and grace for everyone to have a laugh until turning on the heat for a confident walk down the runway.
Lucy Lawless made her way down the catwalk in her breezy elegant way, a lace-detailed sleeveless gown by Nicole Miller. Lorraine Toussaint (Orange Is The New Black) made a regal presentation in a gown by Masha Titievsky, part of the Fashion Incubator at Macy’s. The dress had enormous fabric sleeves, which waved gracefully along Toussaint. Jesse James Decker entered with a striking low-cut James Godfrey look in a luxurious red and a stunning blow-out. Her fun energy was clear as she confidently made her way down the walk.
Diane Guerrero (Orange is the New Black, Jane the Virgin) made her way down the catwalk at her own leisurely pace, giving everyone an opportunity to examine her stunning gown of sequins and sparkles by Gustavo Cadile. Jeannie Mai topped it out with a double-dab on upon exit, in a stunning and modern-cut organza dress by John Paul Ataker. Others included the singer for Hillary Clinton’s unofficial theme song Rachel Platten and Peyton List.
The Red Dress Collection Presentation was a moment for women to be empowered and celebrated on the grand stage and share why they #goRed.
