Local celebs and fashion designers teamed up at the Red Dress Collection fashion show to raise awareness for heart disease in women. As they hit the runway, the collaborators took to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to dole out virtual high-fives and share their best selfies — all in the name of a heart-healthy cause. Here are some highlights from the show (and the social networks).

Allison Kaplan

Senior editor at Mpls.St.Paul magazine and host of “Shop Girls” on myTalk107.1.

Designer: Tara LaTour.

Social buzz: Donning one of the best looks of the night, Kaplan posted a photo of the dress’ original sketch on her Instagram account, adding “Spoiler alert: I look absolutely nothing like this in @Taralatour’s dress.”

Stacie Clark

Owner of Tiger Athletics and Women’s Health “Next Fitness Star.”

Designer: MAI.

Social buzz: @FashionbyMai tweeted, “@RedDressMN was a blast and such a great cause. @StacieClarkLife rocked it!”

Charity Bess

Miss Minnesota International 2013.

Designer: Tim Navarro.

Aristea Brady

Anchor and reporter for WCCO-TV.

Designer: Adrienne Yancy.

Social buzz: Amelia Santaniello, who walked the Red Dress runway last year, took to Twitter to show her support for her WCCO gal pal, saying “Fun night for a good cause! Aristea rocked it down the runway!”

Social buzz: Upon seeing 7-year-old heart defect survivor Millie Muller in the makeup chair, Ek snapped a pic and posted it on Instagram with the caption, “Thought I was gonna be the tiniest model at #reddressmn, but just spotted the cutest mini model in the making in the chair next to me.”
