Today is National Wear Red Day, in case anyone was wondering why the color is popping up so much - or not. It's all part of February's designation as American Heart Month.
The biggest splash's been in the Big Apple, where red ruled the runway at the annual Heart Truth Red Dress Fall 2008 show. The collection was shown as part of the Fashion Week festivities continuing in New York.
First lady Laura Bush was there with daughter Barbara. Mrs. Bush opted out of the color code and wore a white suit, but she had a little "Red Day" pin prominently displayed on her jacket.
Celebrities were the stars of the show, including actresses Molly Sims and Lisa Rinna (pictured). They joined the likes of "Project Runway's" Heidi Klum and Broadway star Rita Moreno.
As for Sacramento? If you're out and about at the Downtown Plaza, the Red Day celebration is in full swing, with health screenings, lifestyle tips, etc., to mark the Go Red For Women cause. That would be that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. (Great. I ate a scrambled egg for breakfast.)
You'll also get to nosh on healthy snacks from local vendors, and stock up on free Go Red pins and bracelets. And, the big, big bonus? If you're into the wearing of the red today, you'll get 15 percent off of apparel and accessories at Macy's in the plaza.
I've got red gloves. See ya there.
