The Heart Truth Red Dress show is always one of the most fun parts of February Fashion Week. To promote awareness of women's heart disease, the organizers send a battery of celebrities down the runway in red gowns created by some of the biggest designers working today. Each year, there's a guest star who blows the crowd away: Last year Joan Collins vamped down the catwalk like she'd invented the very concept of fabulousness, while 2009 featured Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter.
Of course, since it's such a good time, the Heart Truth show isn't easy to get into—even for journalists, it's a pretty controlled list. Luckily, The Clothes Off Our Back Foundation is offering two tickets to the show to the highest bidder. Proceeds from the auction go to projects relating to women's heart health, and it looks like they'll be in for a windfall: The current bid is already $700, and there are still more than four days to go.
