Heart Truth Factoid #14:

Tonight is The Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection show, a buoyant (and stylish!) way to raise awareness for women's heart health.

But, nonetheless, 51.6% of American women are overweight, and 17.3% of women smoke, substantially increasing their heart disease risk.

So lose weight, stop smoking...and throw on a hot red dress to show your support (like of this great cause.)

Why are we promoting a happy heart? It's on trend of course!

This month, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) will host its annual star-studded Red Dress Collection runway show during New York Fashion Week. The Heart Truth initiative, as it is known, aims to inform women about the risk of heart disease.

Be sure to check back regularly for exclusive news, coverage, and celebrity interviews pertaining to the glam fashion show taking place on February 11th as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
