Remember the lady who gave a closet tour of her 200 Birkins and Kellys?

Guess who Heart Evangelista had afternoon tea with over the weekend? Singaporean socialite Jamie Chua! The two ladies posted on Instagram the same photo with similar captions.

Heart wrote, "It was so lovely to see you," while Jamie remarked, "It’s so good to see you in Singapore!"

Meeting Jamie is every fashionista's dream. The 45-year-old entrepreneur has a 700-square-foot, fingerprint-protected closet, where she keeps over 200 Hermes bags.

Her most prized possession is a Himalayan Crocodile Birkin (third row from top, second from right), which has "245 diamonds." She also has a smaller version.

Touted as the "Holy Grail" in any bag collection, it has broken auction records twice, according to The Fashion Law. In June 2017, a three-year-old Himalayan Crocodile Birkin was sold for $380,000 (PHP19.8M) at Christie's Auctions & Private Sales in Hong Kong. In May 2016, an eight-year-old Himalayan Crocodile Birkin was sold for $300,168 (PHP15.7M).

Jamie also owns a Himalayan Kelly, which is said to be the "rarest in the world."
