AMPING UP THE ‘RED’ IN RED BANK

Just a week after Valentine’s Day, hearts were celebrated in Red Bank Thursday night not for love or romance, but for health, as Buona Sera Ristorante once again hosted “The Red Dress Event,” presented by Meridian CardioVascular Network to bring awareness to the risk of heart disease.

Women decked in their best little red dresses came out to enjoy cocktails, music and gorgeous designer gowns crafted by Vera Wang, Oscar De la Renta, Marc Jacobs, and Donna Karan, on display directly from New York Fashion Week’s ‘The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection.’ The celebrity fashion show itself played on  flat screens in the background as the dance floor turned into a swirling sea of red skirts and flashing lights.

AN OCEAN OF RED IN RED BANK

It’s not just Mother Nature’s recent toying with the thermostat that’s giving us a taste of spring in February.

Every year at this time, Red Bank’s temperature rises for a few hours as hundreds of women, most of them bedecked in luscious red, gather for drinks, dancing and a good cause: ‘The Red Dress Event,’ hosted by Meridian Women’s Heart Connection.

Once again, on Thursday night, stunning designer gowns from New York’s Fashion Week were on display at Buona Sera Restaurant, where a ballroom turned into a scarlet ocean and the dance floor was jumping.
