Eve will be one of many celebrities sauntering down the catwalk for the Heart Truth fashion show, kicking off this season’s New York fashion week.
The Heart Truth aims to shed awareness on heart disease, which is a leading killer among women. This year’s show will feature a number of celebrities, including Audrina Patridge, Camila Alves, Cat Deeley, Denise Richards, Dita Von Teese, Julianne Hough, Katrina Bowden and Natasha Bedingfield, to name a few.
When MTV News caught up with Eve recently, she opened up about prepping for the show. “It makes me feel like a lady,” she said of her red David Meister dress. “Which is nice! I want to go to a ball in it! It’s beautiful. I definitely will have to have good posture in this dress. It’s a beautiful dress.”
Eve is known for her tough, street-smart style, and she said she wanted to show a new side of herself in the show. “From what I know about David’s dresses, they are very elegant. They are very pretty. I did want to wear something that would sway with me on the runway, just because I’m not a model and I’m not trying to do a crazy walk. I guess this will help me walk down the aisle the right way.”
Sure, Eve has graced many a red carpet, but she admits that walking down the runway has her shaken.
“I’m ridiculously nervous! I just hope it’s over quickly. You know, I want everyone to see the dress and I want to walk. I don’t want to run down the runway, but I’m scared. I am. I’m stressed, but my mom will be there,” she explained, hoping to not trip and fall like Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex and the City.”
“No ’Sex and the City’ moments, even though she did look fabulous and she got up and kept it moving,” she added. “So if it did happen, then we’ll see.”
