Talk about heart-racing fashion.
Susan Lucci showed off her slim figure in a red gown at the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection Concert overnight, as per Page Six.
The All My Children star, 77, stunned in a strapless crimson dress with sequins embroidered all over and dozens of feathers flowing down from her knees.
Lucci accessorised her classic look with red heels and silver diamond jewellery.
The soap opera star kept her hair in her signature style of loose curls while she added a bright red lip to celebrate the theme of the gala.
At one point, she knelt to the ground to pet American political commentator Ana Navarro’s pup, who also pranced through the red carpet.
Lucci attended the event but chose not to walk the annual fashion show, though she has modelled on the runway for the charity event many times.
Five years ago, Lucci made headlines when she accidentally took a tumble while walking the runway, but that didn’t stop her from strutting her stuff the next few years.
However, several other stars, including Heather Dubrow, Francia Raisa and Sherri Shepherd all walked on the stage.
Lucci has been attending the Heart Association’s annual event for years since she underwent emergency heart surgery in 2018.
“I had a slight pressure on my chest, but I kept ignoring it, as we women do. ‘It’ll go away, it’ll go away.’ But the third time, I couldn’t ignore it,” she recalled to Page Six in February 2023.
The Emmy award winner discovered she had a 90 per cent blockage in her heart’s main artery and got two stents implanted to increase blood flow.
“It felt like an elephant pressing on my chest,” she added. “I was driven to St. Francis Hospital, and I learned I had a 90 per cent blockage in my main artery and a 75 per cent blockage in the adjacent.”
Lucci has since recovered from her procedure and continued to live her life in the public eye.
