Summary: Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week kicked off to a star-studded start on this rainy Friday in Bryant Park with The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection Fashion Show. Of course, this annual tradition since 2003 isn’t necessarily about the clothes, but all about the celebrity models (although the Marc Jacobs slip dress Heidi Klum wore strutting down the runway was fabulous!). Allison Janney in Donna Karan, Cheryl Hines in Catherine Malandrino, and Sara Ramirez in Angel Sanchez were among the few donning red organza, satin and sequins–and they enjoyed putting the step into the little red dress! Camryn Manheim sported sassy shades with her Ali Rahimi gown and even touched up her lipgloss at the end of the runway. Liza Minnelli wrapped up the show in Halston Original with a grand slam performance of New York, New York.
Color Palette: black, silver, and of course…red!
Textures & Details: organza, silk, chiffon, sequins
Key Looks: Gowns were the dominating style of the show. Empire-waisted, low-back and halter. Lots of wrap effects and ruffles and two strapless knee-length pieces.
