New York City, Part IV (The Red Dress Fashion Show)

My favorite part of the whole trip was definitely The Heart Truth's Red Dress Fashion Show.  I had never been to anything like this and it was so fun getting all dolled up and being treated like a VIP!  Diet Coke sent had us taken to the show in a limousine and once we arrived we went into a special section of the building specifically set up for VIP's.  We were up on a balcony where we could look down and see the models getting their hair and makeup done, which was fun to see.  They also had drinks and appetizers for us.  The best part for me was being able to meet Minka Kelly, an actress on my favorite show "Friday Night Lights".  When it was time for the show we went into the main room and took our seats.  The show itself was surprisingly short, but it was exciting and entertaining.  The women who participated in the show were: Minka Kelly, Rose McGowan, Rebecca Romijn, Aisha Tyler, Jennifer Nettles, Elisabeth Rohm, Chaka Khan, Patti Stanger, Gloria Estefan and Christie Brinkley and Debbie Phelps (mother of Michael Phelps).

Possibly my favorite picture of the night.  We wanted to get a photo in front of the limo, but it pulled away.  I was yelling noooo, and Catherine was laughing.

Thank you so much Diet Coke for this amazing opportunity!
