We all know that Heart Evangelista-Escudero has been to Paris last June for the Couture Week, but what some of you did not know is her secret project with Harper’s Bazaar US.
Just this morning, our favorite style inspiration and trend-setter finally unveiled her collaboration with America’s first fashion magazine and Crazy Rich Asians’s author Kevin Kwan.
As written by Kevin Kwan in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar US, “Hailing from the Filipino-Chinese clan that founded the Barrio Fiesta food empire, wife of Senator Francis Joseph “Chiz” Escudero, and an acclaimed actress and painter who has hosted sold-out exhibitions, Heart is certainly a real crazy rich Asian.”
Heart shared to MEGA, Kevin Kwan initially reached out to her by asking if she can go to Paris, but during that time she decided not to go because of what she was going through.
It was only through her husband that she was persuaded to continue her project in Paris. “My husband told me maybe God sent you angels for you to climb out of the black hole,” she explained.
Finally, from wearing Carolina Herrera, Elie Saab, Armani Privé, Mark Bumgarner, and Tibi, Heart did not disappoint anyone and just channeled her old sophisticated self back as she attended the “crème de la crème” of fashion—Couture Week.
In an article of Harper’s Bazaar US, Heart told Kwan that “seeing a show like this reminds me why I love going to the couture shows. It’s so therapeutic.”
The first show they attended was Schiaparelli at the Palais Garnier, and once they were seen, Kwan mentioned in the article that a crowd of paparazzi went over to them to take photos, especially Heart who was wearing a sequined ombré dress.
Once they have finished the couture shows from Schiaparelli, Alexis Mabille, Armani Privé, Ulyana Sergeenko, and Elie Saab that was the perfect time to do their shoot at the luxurious Hôtel Ritz Paris.
Standing on the balcony of Ritz, Heart looked stunning as she wore an ostrich feathered Armani Privé creation partnered with Chopard diamond earrings. It was her favorite look from couture week because she “liked it and thought it would be fun to go all out!” Heart explained.
