The RHOA star is all sorts of fierce walking the runway for benefit event.

Feb 7 - The Dish

Gigi Hadid isn't the only rising superstar at this year's New York Fashion Week.

NeNe Leakes also brought runway fierceness in the name of charity. On Thursday, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star participated in the Heart Truth Red Dress Collection 2014, a campaign that aims to raise awareness about heart disease among women.

And raise awareness she did: NeNe sported a form-fitting, off-the-shoulder Dolce & Gabbana gown paired with sky-high pumps. She was joined by other celebs including Kat Graham, AnnaSophia Robb, and Giada di Laruentiis. Cynthia Bailey was also spotted in the audience cheering on her girl.

NeNe has recently revealed she's making big changes to her health following her blood clot crisis last year.

 

"I'm eating better, I'm taking my vitamins, and making sure I'm getting checkups with my doctors," she said. She's also turning it in a lot earlier. "Before, I would go all day and all night I'd even be working in bed, just to get it in. Now, my team knows I don't want to meet after 6pm. I have to give my body a rest."
