New York Fashion Week kicked off with the always eagerly awaited, celebrity-model filled “The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Collection” fashion show, held at the Hammerstein Ballroom yesterday. The show was created to raise awareness for women’s heart issues and deatures stars walking the runway in red dresses loaned by top designers. This year, we adored Minka Kelly in a graceful, pleated and draped Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 gown. Kelly Osbourne wore a hot, strapless mermaid fishtail by Zac Posen, while Jamie Chung took on slinky deep cherry sequins from the David Meister Signature collection. Toni Braxton looked sultry in a halter Herve L. Leroux gown, while Gabrielle Douglas looked poised in a Pamella Roland mullet dress. The Jenner family walked the ramp too — Kris, Kendall and Kylie — in bright red Badgley Mischka gowns. We have to say, the girls looks absolutely lovely. Rounding up the ladies is, Roselyn Sanchez who had a blast in Tadashi Shoji as she shimmied down the runway. You can see all the looks in our gallery below. Whose gown is your favorite?

While our best-dressed at the ALMA Awards list was surprising, the not-so-best dressed list also has some unexpected entries. And what all of them had in common was that all of them messed up wearing, what normally is our favorite shade, black. Nicole Richie has no business being anything but fabulously attired. We get what she was going for in this black, semi-sheer Mathieu Mirano dress with gold accents — haute couture, edgy. Unfortunately, the black and gold texturing on the front of the dress looks like it’s eating her alive. Love the makeup and hair, though! Naya Rivera‘s Dolce & Gabbana pant suit would have been good idea if she has paid attention to the fit. Are we feeling the raccoon eyes too? Not too sure about that. Maybe with different hair. Then there was Christina Aguilera, and we will defend her against anyone who says anything about her weight. Stop hating on her curves. We’re not feeling her styling, that’s all. The peroxide hair with the the purple tips. The caked makeup that looks about two inches thick. The way OTT heels. She would have worked that black Michael Kors gown with the sexy lacy cutouts had she pared back everything else. Kat Deluna, on the other had should have picked a better dress, and a better makeup artist to do her justice. That gown with the ruffled slit does not work. Nor does co-host of the evening, Eva Longoria‘s, who should have stuck with the Monique Lhuillier gown she wore upon arrival. What’s up with those patterned sheer swirly’s on the lower half of the gown? And while we’re at it, what’s up with Roselyn Sanchez‘s crazy bun?
