There was a sea of red dresses backstage at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Feb. 8, as women from all facets of the entertainment industry came together for a good cause.

Each woman had her special reason for walking the ramp, including gospel great CeCe Winans, whose brother Ronald, died from heart disease in 2005 at the age of 48.

But one thing’s for sure: the audience could feel the love and support at the 2018 American Heart Association’s “Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection,” presented by Macy’s.

This year’s show was hosted by Marisa Tomei, with 17 celebrities walking in the show including: Ginger Zee, Kate Walsh, Kathy Ireland, Lea Salonga, Lynn Whitfield, Marion Ross, Tatyana Ali and Zuri Hall.

Lea Salonga kicked off the show with a musical performance, while En Vogue wrapped things up old-school style.
