Ladies in red: New York fashionistas

A host of celebrities, including Felicity Huffman, Kim Karda-shian and Joan Collins, can now all say they've walked in models' shoes after taking part in The Red Dress Collection runway show last night at New York Fashion Week.

Well, except for swimmer Dara Torres. She carried her silver, sparkly stilettos by Brian Atwood, shrugging her shoulders and giving a 'don't blame me, blame the shoes' look when she struck her pose in front of the cameras.

The annual show is part of The Heart Truth campaign to raise awareness about heart disease and women.

At one point it was spearheaded by former first lady Laura Bush.

"All these women have never done runway and they get out there and strut their stuff," professional model Heidi Klum said backstage.
