The Heart Truth Red Dress Fashion Show opened Mercedes Benz Fashion Week for Spring 2011. Heart disease in women is the number one killer of women and the women in the runway show looked “killer” in their red dresses. I was sitting in the audience thinking, "Wow, I want to look like Suzanne Somers!!"

Celebrity participants in this year's Red Dress Collection Fashion Show included: The Biggest Loser's Alison Sweeney, Today Show host Ann Curry, The Good Wife's Archie Punjabi, reality television star Audrina Patridge, So You Think You Can Dance's Cat Deeley, television actress and Cover Girl makeup model Dania Ramirez, actress and former fashion model Denise Richards, actress and burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, Californication's Eva Amurri, recording artist Eve, actress and model Garcelle Beauvais, talk show host Gayle King, E! anchor Giuliana Rancic, singer and actress Julianne Hough, former professional boxer Laila Ali, television and screen actress Linda Gray, singer Patti LaBelle, Law & Order: SVU's Stephanie March, Three's Company/Step by Step actress Suzanne Somers, and Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson.

New York's fashion week designers "went all out" to support the fight against heart disease and to make the models look absolutely smashing as they walked the runway in their red dresses.
