A gang of our favorite celebs including Gina Torres, Nene Leakes, Rutina Wesley and Kat Graham walked the runway for NYFW’s Red Dress Collection… The American Heart Association held the show Thursday night at Lincoln Center to raise awareness for heart disease in women. In case you didn’t already know, today Friday Feb. 7th is National Go Red Day. National Go Red Day is a day to help bring awareness to heart disease in women, which is the #1 killer of women, killing 1 and 3 women, and approximately killing one woman every minute. You can show your support, wear red and post your pictures online with the hashtag #GoRed!
One of our favorite photos from the show had to be this one of Rutina Wesley hamming it up…
