The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection 2011 show featured Laila Ali, Dita Von Teese, Eve, Dania Ramirez, Camila Alves, Gayle King, Julianne Hough and lots more . The annual show which has been running for 8 years which teams up with designers to bring awareness to heart disease that affects women.
“To make women more aware of the danger of heart disease, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and partner organizations are sponsoring a national campaign called The Heart Truth®. The campaign’s goal is to give women a personal and urgent wakeup call about their risk of heart disease.”
“Heart disease disproportionately affects women of color. African American and Hispanic women in particular have high rates of the major risk factors for heart disease, including obesity, physical inactivity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. The Heart Truth Women of Color initiative, with its partners, focuses on extending The Heart Truth messages, and engaging in national and local activities to help more women of color understand The Heart Truth-and inspire them to take action to reduce their risks for heart disease.”
