You’d think a girl like Heart Evangelista would take hours to prep for an event like the Star Magic Ball but surprisingly, she was pretty quick. As soon as she arrived from her Star Talk taping, she quickly slipped into her glam team’s room to have herself made up yet again. “Albert (Kurniawan) works really quick, which is why I love working with him,” says Heart’s stylist Kat Cruz.
Her cousin Jodi Sta. Maria and friend Alex Gonzaga also stopped by the room for a quick chat. By this time the girls were already dressed, which would make you wonder where Heart’s dress is. “We’re changing upstairs, Chiz is already there getting ready,” she says just as Jerry Javier finishes up on her hair.
What happens next seemed like a scene picked out from a movie. What do we mean? Scroll down and see what happened as we prepped with the newly-engaged couple in what would be the groom-to-be's first celebrity red carpet event.
