The Heart Truth fashion show — at which celebs don red dresses for women's heart health — is always fun to watch, sort of like a mega-wedding where every bridesmaid gets to choose her own dress. And this was the best one yet.

I think we can all agree that Dita Von Teese needs to be in this show, every year, in some variation on this classic. "Glamour" isn't even a strong enough word!

Natasha Bedignfield also went dramatically Old Hollywood.

Taraji P. Henson also went "sultry."

But the ultimate in "Sexiness" surely went to Camila Alves.

Red lends itself to drama; Eve took full advantage.

Of course, when you give people full creative control, you risk someone wearing a bead shawl. But it takes all kinds, as a man once said, to make a world. And a fashion show full of red dresses.

It also seems obligatory that someone should channel Betty Boop. And in this case, the role fell to Suzanne Somers.

Although when you see it in action, it's hard to argue!

Another creative choice, the be-flowered Garcelle Beauvais.

Laila Ali's maternity gown would be amazing in any context.

Ann Curry took the soft, romantic route. (Which, along with glam and sexy, is one of the major red-dress categories.)

Also softly Valentine-apropos: Archie Panjabi.

Ditto Denise Richards — who could do double-duty in an eveningwear competition!

Gayle King was totally classic.

Eva Amurri was one of the few who did something really unexpected with her silhouette; adorable.

In the mini camp: Katrina Bowden.

Its redness is debatable; it's glitter, not.

Patti LaBelle, per usual, defines fabulosity.
