Surprise Guest at First Lady’s Red Dress Event

Designers may have been scarce at the reception Laura Bush hosted at the White House on Monday in honor of the Heart Truth's Red Dress...

Following the sightseeing, the designer honorees had a few private moments in the Red Room with the First Couple, after which everyone filed into the East Room where the President introduced Laura Bush, who in turn introduced Elizabeth Nabel, M.D., director of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. Not surprisingly, they all voiced ample thanks, to doctors and other health care workers, to researchers, to the designers and models who participated in the initiative, to women who practice sound heart health.

But that’s not all.

Sounding a bit like a fashion pro herself, Nabel had a few more stops to make on the gratitude train: she thanked the Heart Truth’s show sponsors, Diet Coke, Johnson & Johnson, and the ubiquitous corporate benefit benefactor whose largess extends from the Rockettes to the White House and Swarovski.
