Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection
Darlings, it’s the Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection fashion during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week!
“The Heart Truth will once again bring the Red Dress to life on the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, with the debut of the Red Dress Collection 2011. Being held for the first time at Lincoln Center, this stunning event will showcase the power of the Red Dress, and encourage women to protect their heart health and take action to lower their risk for heart disease.”
A wonderful cause and a wonderful way to raise awareness. BUT ALSO a parade of celebrities running from B-List all the way down the alphabet wearing some pretty cracktastic gowns and being kind of adorably awkward.
Except this year the gowns weren’t as crack- or promtastic as they usually are. There were some rather stylish crimson frocks to be found among the usual parade of red goddess gowns. Check it:
Alison Sweeney in Tadashi Shoji
She’s definitely got the figure for the dress, which is pretty standard otherwise.
Ann Curry in Carmen Marc Valvo
We’d like it more if it wasn’t so satiny.
Archie Penjabi in J. Mendel
Audrina Patridge in Badgley Mischka
That’s a pretty hot dress, we have to say.
Camila Alves in Kaufmanfranco
Look! It’s that woman who killed Shear Genius!
Dania Ramirez in Malandrino
It’s got some interest to it. We like the shade of red.
Denise Richards in Matthew Williamson
Was T Lo talking about the dress or the celebrity? You make the call!
Eva Amurri in Chris Benz
We like that it’s not yet another sheath gown. It’s cute, but definitely for a specific girl.
Eve in David Meister
Garcelle Beauvais in Monique Lhuillier
The last time we saw that dress, it was “disguising” a roll of toilet paper on a great aunt’s commode.
Gayle King in Donna Karan
We searched for snark, but came up empty. It’s a fine dress and she looks good.
Snark would have been more fun, though.
Giuliana Rancic in Marchesa
An utterly shapeless dress. It looks like they wrapped yards and yards of fabric around her midsection, pinned it, and shoved her out on the runway.
Dita Von Teese in Zac Posen
She is the only woman on the planet who could make that dress work. A couple of men could, but only with the aid of some duct tape and padding.
Julianne Hough in Swarovski
Unless she’s a queen of Wonderland, we’d have to say this look is a bit much.
Katrina Bowden in Oscar de la Renta
Laila Ali in A Pea in the Pod
That’s an okay dress, but it’s a FABULOUS color on her.
Linda Gray in Pamella Rolland
SUE ELLEN EWING! As we leave and breathe. Haven’t we all missed that sloppy, privileged drunk with the most expressive brow in Texas? Why did you go away, Sue Ellen?
Natasha Bedingfield in Nicole Miller
S’alright. A little bit Carrie White, if Karen Allen and John Travolta had slaughtered a cow instead of a pig.
Patti LaBelle in Zang Toi
After 40 years of divahood, it is physically impossible for Pattie LaBelle to stand in front of a crowd any way but this way.
Suzanne Sommers in Ina Soltani
Suzanne Somers IS Baby Jane Hudson!
Taraji P. Henson in Naeem Khan
Working that dress like it owes her money.
