This Is Us star Lyric Ross walked a catwalk for the first time on Wednesday at the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women fashion show.

She wore a dress designed by Kimberly Penn that featured jeweled details, a high neck and an open back.

Although Ross has never walked in a fashion show before, she found great advice: “You really just have to be yourself, especially in this fashion show, so I’m definitely ready to do that.”
