Celebrity models gather at the end of the runway at Go Red For Women - The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection 2014 Show Made Possible By Macy's And SUBWAY Restaurants at The Theatre in New York City.

Ladies in red! Celebrities helped kick off New York Fashion Week last night (Feb. 6) at Lincoln Center by strutting down the runway for a cause.

Kat Graham, Bella Thorne, Victoria Justice, Colbie Caillat, Joan Jett and more all worked sexy red looks by famed designers for The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Fashion Show, which raises awareness for heart disease in women.

“Getting to hang out with the other woman participating was my favorite part of the show,” Kat Graham told Billboard at the show. “The music at the event was fun and free. It felt purposeful and strong, which made sense for the event. They let me walk to my favorite song at the moment which is the The Knife's ‘Heartbeats.’” 

Kat worked an edgy fitted python dress by Mathieu Mirano down the runway, which seems to be quite telling of her new attitude toward style.  “I don’t really have a main source for my style inspiration,” she said. “It’s really about however I feel about myself at the moment. I've been wearing a lot of suits for the past year steering away from feminine pieces and going for more structured pieces. My main source for inspiration comes from my muse at the moment.”

Fashion aside, Kat’s also switching up her music career. “Moving to Interscope has been such a great dream come true for me,” Kat revealed. “I'm excited to go into 2014 with these new records and a cooler edge in that lane. My single ‘Power’ was a great place to leave off in the summer. I'm ready to reveal who I am truly as a beatmaker, an engineer, writer and artist.
