However, Lucci, 72, showed real class as she smiled at the crowd and got back to her feet with a flourish, waved to the crowd and made her way off the catwalk. 

For Lucci, the cause is one close to her heart. The former “All My Children” star told People magazine about her experience having a major blockage of her arteries in October last year.

Lucci is now determined to help increase awareness about heart health in any way she can, and said in an interview: 

“I’m not a nurse or anyone who can help in any real way; this is the way I can help. I can tell my story. Everyone’s symptoms are different, but I felt compelled to share mine. Even if it’s one person, I help. That is someone’s life.”

Lucci is best known for portraying the part of Erica Kane on "All My Children," from 2007 until 2011 and appeared in more than 1,000 episodes.
