When you think February, what comes to mind? Chocolates, flowers and candy hearts, right? While our  romantic sides always seem to make an appearance right around Valentine’s Day (willingly or unwillingly!), there is something else that should be on every woman’s mind: heart health.

If you didn’t already know, February is American Heart month, and the Heart Truth is a national awareness campaign that educates women about heart disease. They have made the LRD (little red dress!) their icon, which has become a national symbol for women’s heart health. They even designated February 4th as National Wear Red Day. (Follow us on Twitter for fun facts like that!) If you ever needed an excuse to wear that sexy red dress hiding in the back of your closet, what better reason then to support heart health?!

But the red dress doesn’t stop there. Every February, New York Fashion Week is kicked off by the Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection, a super-fun and star-studded fashion show. Celebs strut the runway wearing scarlet-colored frocks created by high-profile designers. Then add in some of your favorite brands (like Swarovski, Diet Coke, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, and AOL Inc) and it becomes a red hot event!

From singing legend Patti LaBelle to reality TV star Audrina Patridge , everyone looked amazing, all the while supporting an great cause. My personal favorite was Dancing With the Stars professional dancer, Julianne Hough. Her sleek physique and admirable confidence made her a rockstar on the runway. And those Swarovski jewels…who could resist the sparkly things in life?!

    There was a time when huge celebrities who largely avoided domestic advertising in order to maintain their pristine images for Belstaff Down Jackets fans did ad campaigns overseas for big bucks and Americans were none the wiser.Michael Kors Outlet, we now have a peek at Gwyneth Paltrow‘s first ads as the international brand ambassador for Belstaff Jackets UK.American consumers already have a vision of Coach and a vision of Gwyneth Paltrow, and those two vision don’t necessarily intersect. And that’s fine, because Belstaff Jackets is already raking in bushels of money on its current, carefully crafted American branding.But for an overseas audience that’s less familiar with the position that Beats By Dre Norge has in the American fashion landscape, the fresh-faced, blonde, blue-eyed actress against a blurry, fast-paced Manhattan backdrop likely reflects exactly the combination of urbanity and Americanness that Coach Outlet would like its foreign customers to see when they look at one of the brand’s handbags. She certainly does look happy with her patent leather satchel.
