Kerry Washington received major love today from the Harvard community. The ‘Scandal’ beauty was celebrated in Cambridge Thursday as Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals’ Woman of the Year honoree.

The nation’s oldest collegiate theatrical organization says it named Washington as Woman of the Year because she’s the first black woman to headline a network TV drama since 1974, according to the Associated Press. Washington set our TV’s ablaze starring as Olivia Pope on the hit show “Scandal,” which debuted in ABC in 2012.

The 38-year old actress has earned Golden Globe, Emmy and Screen Actors Guild nominations for the role.

Our beloved Comedian Amy Poehler won the prestigious Hasty Pudding last year. Others who have been honored include Meryl Streep, Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor.

Entertainment, Media And Fashion Celebrities Raise Awareness At Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection 2016 Fashion Show Presented By Macy’s

The American Heart Association announced today that the Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection 2016 presented by Macy’s will return to New York Fashion Week at Skylight at Moynihan Station on Thursday, February 11, 2016. The fashion show begins at 8 p.m. ET and is slated to feature more than 20 celebrities in couture gowns by top fashion designers.

In an effort to amplify the message of heart health nationwide, the runway show will be preceded by a Livestream pre-show that will feature live interviews with celebrities and designers from the red carpet, take viewers at home behind-the-scenes, and even offer some tips for staying heart healthy, too. The Livestream will air on GoRedForWomen.org as well as Macys.com.

Walking in this year’s Go Red For Women’s Red Dress Collection presented by Macy’s are: Candace Cameron Bure (Full House, Fuller House); Debbie Gibson (musician/producer); Florence Henderson (The Brady Bunch); Fran Drescher (The Nanny, Happily Divorced); Gail Simmons (Top Chef); Gigi Gorgeous (model/social media personality); Kit Hoover (co-host of Access Hollywood Live); Lele Pons (social media personality); Madison Beer (musician); Marilu Henner (actress); Monica (singer); Olivia Culpo (Miss USA 2012); Skylar Diggins (WNBA basketball player); Soleil Moon Frye (blogger/Punky Brewster); Ta’Rhonda Jones (Empire); Tamron Hall (NBC’s TODAY & MSNBC’s NewsNation); and Vanna White (Wheel of Fortune).

“The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement truly appreciates the opportunity to be a part of New York Fashion Week. The aim here is simple: to make heart health and a Well-Woman Visit this season’s must-haves from the runway,” said Nancy Brown, Chief Executive Officer, American Heart Association. “We are so thankful to all of the wonderful celebrities walking in this year’s Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection who are both supporting our cause and driving awareness around the need for women to schedule a Well-Woman Visit to fully understand their risks for heart disease and stroke.”

The facts are clear: heart disease and stroke cause 1 in 3 deaths among women each year – more than all cancers combined. The good news is that 80 percent of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action. The most important action: taking advantage of a Well-Woman Visit, an annual check-up that can provide personal health information and help assess risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

Macy’s, the founding national sponsor of Go Red For Women, is the presenting sponsor of the Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection. Macy’s has raised more than $55 million through the generosity and commitment of Macy’s associates and customers, which has helped fund women’s heart health research and education.

“The Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection is such a special fashion show that touches the hearts of so many,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s chief marketing officer. “The celebrities really are walking for a cause all the while inspiring millions to go red. We are thrilled to continue to sponsor the Collection and have our three emerging Fashion Incubator designers showcase their talents for three celebrities.”

The Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection 2016 presented by Macy’s features three looks from designers in the not-for-profit, independently-run Fashion Incubator Programs housed at Macy’s: Conrad Booker from Philadelphia, Kajan “Cake” Carlos from San Francisco and Grace Lee-Lim from Chicago. Celebrities walking in these designs are Ta’Rhonda Jones in Conrad Booker, Kit Hoover in Kajan “Cake” Carlos and Vanna White in Grace Lee-Lim.
