The East Coast was dealing with a major blizzard, the second in one week, but I was preparing to attend my first fashion show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I never would have thought that my job as an Account Executive with a Project Management company would’ve landed me tickets to a show, but since my client Tylenol was a major sponsor, I scored an invite to the Heart Truth runway show at Bryant Park! 🙂 Getting to see a show at the final season at the tents was all I could think about, and I was not about to let a foot of snow keep me from getting to New York from Philadelphia. Our train was delayed but we got there just in time…although I would quickly learn that fashion shows NEVER start on time.
There was so much energy in the room, and many fabulous women and style moms were about to walk the runway for an important cause. Finally the show kicked off with Kristin Chenoweth wearing a Daniel Swarovski dress. Next up was “Desperate Housewives,” Felicity Huffman in Oscar de la Renta, who stopped to kiss her hubby, William H. Macy, sitting in the front row. Raven Symoné came out looking fabulous wearing a Tadashi Shoji gown. At the end of her walk, Raven tripped and lost a shoe, so she kicked the other one off nonchalantly and proceeded to strut her stuff.
Real Housewife of New York, and soon to be mommy, Bethany Frankel came out to the Supremes song Baby Love, showing off her baby bump in a Stylemom favorite, Isabella Oliver dress. There was more “high-heel drama” when another fab mom, olympic swimmer, Dara Torres came out in a Rachel Roy dress with her heels in her hand.
Kim Kardashian came out wearing Marchesa and blowing kisses to her boyfriend Reggie Bush who was in the front row. Mom mogul, Kimora Lee, walked the runway in a dress from her Kouture by Kimora line. Last but certain not least was our favorite hot mom, Heidi Klum in a dress by John Galliano and she looked absolutely stunning as always.
Other celebrities who worked the runway were Elisabeth Hasselbeck in Donna Karan, Estelle in Zac Posen, Jordin Sparks in Badgley Mischka, Mamie Gummer in Michael Kors, Pauley Perrette in Rebecca Taylor, Regina King in Tracy Reese, Robin Roberts in J. Crew Collectiom, Joan Collins in Stephane Rolland and Valerie Harper in Pamella Roland.
