models at the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show.

For the eighth year in a row, The Heart Truth® Red Dress Collection Fashion Show brought heart health and glamour together at New York's Bryant Park. Seventeen celebrities walked the runway on Feb. 11, 2010 wearing designer red dresses to celebrate women's heart disease awareness and inspire women to take control of their risk factors.

The Heart Truth® created and introduced the Red Dress as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002 to deliver an urgent wake-up call to American women. Each February since its launch, The Red Dress symbol has come to life on the runway with the support of the fashion industry and celebrity models at the Red Dress Collection Fashion Show.
