The Red Dress Collection Fashion Show

As you may know from following my tweets, I attended The Heart Truth® Red Dress CollectionSM 2013 fashion show on Wednesday night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC as a Diet Coke® digital ambassador. This is always such a fun show because of the upbeat crowd and because it's for such a great cause - designers create one-of-a-kind red gowns for celebrities to wear down the runway, and it's all to promote women's heart health awareness. Before the show, I got to hang out with some of my favorite fellow fashion bloggers in the Diet Coke VIP lounge, meet the beautiful and talented Minka Kelly, the celebrity ambassador for The Heart Truth, and of course enjoy the show! It was an inspirational night and a fabulous way to kick of New York Fashion Week.

And don't forget - you can still get involved througout the month of February - just tweet a pic with hashtag #ShowYourHeart and Diet Coke will donate $1 to women's heart health programs.

Shown above: The star-studded finale. Celebs who rocked the runway included Kelly Osbourne, Toni Braxton, Kris Jenner and her girls Kendall and Kylie, and many more.

The scene before the show. The VIP lounge overlooked the area where celebrities were getting ready so we could watch the action.

Kim from eat, sleep, wear got a glitter heart tattoo pre-show, so fun!

I got a black and gold manicure before the show, how cute is the bow?!
