Stars flocked to New York on Thursday night to attend the annual American Heart Association's Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection 2017 show, hosted by Katie Holmes. The glamourous presenter wore a stunning red Marchesa gown, and took to Instagram to showcase it in all its glory. Posting a video to her 723,000 followers, Katie is seen jiggling backstage, resulting in the beautiful fringe detail on the dress to sway from side to side. Embellished with jewels, the statement dress was a hit with her fans, who were quick to praise her choice of outfit. One follower commented: "Your dress is sensational", while another wrote: "What a fun and beautiful dress". Katie's look was complete with bold lips and killer brows, while her brown hair was worn in an elegant up-do.
