There’s no denying Heart Evangelista’s style influence. Making waves as a real-life "Crazy Rich Asian," she has certainly enamored audiences both here and abroad with her impeccable 'fits and her head-turning looks.
We just have to have what she's wearing! Remember the "Heart-made-buy-it" shopping sprees? This caption buzzed on social media as netizens confessed their recent luxury goods splurges that were inspired by the trend-setter. Most of which were the Saint Laurent New Wave SL 276 in Black that she debuted in Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. It instantly sold out in Paris, Dubai, Canada, and India! But, did you know that this fashion moment almost didn't happen?
LOOK: Real Story Behind Heart Evangelista's Iconic YSL Sunglasses
In an exclusive interview with Preview, Heart shares that the iconic sunnies weren't originally part of her ensemble. "Actually, the reason why I was wearing the YSL shades was because I cried," she reveals.
There had been a miscommunication with one of the looks she was supposed to wear, and it compounded on the last minute delays prior to her departure as well as the stress of traveling alone in the middle of a pandemic. And who can blame her? "I was so frustrated," she admits.
But rather than letting it get the best of her, she wiped off her tears, picked herself up, and soldiered on to attend the Fendi show—but not without first making an emergency detour. "That’s why I said, 'Okay, I have to pass by a store and get shades because I have to cover my eyes.' And that’s why I was wearing the shades, " Heart recalls.
And we're so happy she did! Her chic black and white Mark Bumgarner dress (and many more outfits after) just wouldn't be the same without the cat-eye specs. More than starting a stock shortage for this accessory, her grit and tenacity also went on to prove why there's only one Heart Evangelista.
