the red carpet stays clean before the show...New York Fashion Week kicked off kicked off Wednesday with the Heart Truth's Red Dress Collection Fashion Show, in which celebs strut the catwalk to help raise awareness about heart disease. The Heart Truth just happens to be a client, so we were lucky enough to work part backstage for most of the night, helping fellow bloggers connect with the night's "models," including Dita Von Teese (we. die.), Eve (teensy) and Giuliana Rancic (teensier, and kind of awesome and hilarious).
It is not every day we get an all-access pass to Fashion Week backstage, so we took major advantage of it. We tweeted up a storm, and snapped a ton of pix about what things were like behind the stage. Most of all, we had a blast. A good cause and a good time? Cheers to that.

backstage = no longer calm. no longer walkable, either.
