Filipinos are trickling their way into the Fashion Weeks of the world’s major stylish cities, but it’s a different case if they do get the chance to exchange a few hellos. In the case of Dr. Vicki Belo and Alex Gonzaga, there might be missed opportunities, and well, maybe even “snubs.” According to them, fashion week mainstay Heart Evangelista had allegedly ignored the duo during Milan Fashion Week!
The tidbit was lightheartedly revealed during a vlog of Dr. Belo, which documented a bathroom chat with her and Alex while in the Italian city. The celebrity doctor had invited the younger actress to the events, and in the video, asked Alex about her thoughts regarding it.
The conversation delved into Filipino personalities who have now become Fashion Week regulars, which naturally touched upon the topic of Heart. Vicki then noted, albeit teasingly, how the 37-year-old socialite apparently “ignored” them during a Gucci fashion show, where the three all sat in the front row.
“'Di tayo pinansin ni Heart! Hoy, Heart!” Vicki raised in a playful tone.
Chiming in, Alex said: “Heart, ano 'to, Mars? Sa Manila magkakaibigan tayo.”
“Mars, we're at the same fashion show. Hindi ka lang man nag-hi!” Vicki added, with Alex piping in jest to say that she even watched Heart’s previous TV series, like 2009’s Luna Mystika, 2007’s Hiram Na Mukha, and 2005’s Ang Panday. The two had also starred together in the 2007 series Pangarap na Bituin.
That being said, it's worth clarifying that all is well and good and this was nothing more than a playful banter between friends. But of course, we'll definitely expect a photo of them together next time they cross paths during Fashion Week!
