Today, the two have taken it upon themselves to adapt and innovate according to the times—something that many of their contemporaries should very well take note of.

Perched at the top of sun-stricken and wind-challenged City of Dreams, Heart Evangelista and Lovi Poe were both oozing in sophistication and sensuality both immaculately dressed to the nines. With a dynamic that is very natural and unforced, the duo made everyone in the team comfortable in their no-holds-barred, playful presence. As the camera shutter clicked, it was an entirely different story. Glistening and scintillating in their custom designer pieces reminiscent of Paco Rabanne’s infamous chain mail dresses and Thierry Mugler’s sculptural creations, the pair transformed in their power poses, taking no prisoners in with their ferocious gaze. In between takes, they would check each other’s hair and makeup, a sisterly bond that seemed to be strengthened over the years despite the fact that both of them grew up under the blinding spotlights of the showbiz world.

In defiance of our culture’s nasty habit of pitting women against each other, Heart Evangelista-Escudero and Lovi Poe are the epitome of how we can help propel each other forward instead of holding one another back.
Now, that is real influence.
