Pia also brightened two New York Fashion Week events, the “Go Red for Women” Red Dress Collection 2016, presented by Macy’s and sponsored by the American Heart Association, on Feb. 11 and the Sherri Hill Fall 2016 runway show on Feb. 12. Go Red for Women which campaigns on raising awareness on the issue of women and heart disease is an exclusive event where top designers, models and celebrities demonstrate their support for women’s heart health during New York Fashion Week.

Pia, with hair pulled straight back, wore a red dress by Carmen Marc Valvo and proved that she could work the ramp like no other. While critics noticed that she draws audience to her face by making faces and her “chunky” walk, as if unsure whether to walk like a beauty queen or a ramp model, Pia nevertheless looked radiantly beautiful and demonstrated incredible stage presence. Pia also shone in the group of models for Sherri Hill blue gown collection which also featured some Miss Universe contestants like Miss USA Olivia Jordan and Miss Kosovo Mirieta Shala.
