The style star has been putting her bashers in their rightful place.

There is an art to being Heart Evangelista, which is to say that she didn’t achieve her status as one of the world’s most bankable fashion influencers overnight. The actress’ success is a product of more than two decades of grit and hustle, and her charmed life doesn’t come with zero adversities. She recently got candid about it, admitting to her followers that she’s going through some “personal struggles.” “I feel a lot of pressure in my life and basically now, I am really in a search for just being happy,” she said in a vlog.

That said, it looks like Heart is slowly bouncing back from emotional distress, as evidenced by her latest Instagram post that showcases her usual bubbly demeanor. “Good morning, Philippines! I am back with a vengeance. Welcome to the season three of my life,” she said in a GRWM video, showing how she came up with her edgy yet effortlessly chic OOTD.

Naturally, netizens and her celebrity friends showered her with love. “Season 3 will be your best season for sure, dear Heart,” talent manager Popoy Caritativo wrote, among many other supportive comments.

Despite all the positive messages, however, one onlooker still took her time to write a rude remark. “You look like butiki (lizard)! Lol,” stated one follower. 

Heart, who is no stranger to unsolicited comments about her body, fired back: “Omg, I really tried to look like that! [smiley emoji] Buti ka pa effortless.”

In an era of digital body-shaming, Heart made it clear time and time again that she’s always going to stand up for herself. Her massage is clear: A woman’s body is nobody’s business but her own. She may not be at her best yet, but she's not gonna stop putting bashers in their rightful place. To quote one of her hall-of-famer clapbacks: “Enough with the negative stuff. We don’t need that stuff now, darling.”
