Heart Evangelista was initially known as a major celebrity from her youth until today. She constantly dominates the entertainment business with her fashion sense and her killer looks.
Despite a minor bump in the road after having a miscarriage, she happily and proudly attended the State Of The Nation Address (SONA) on July 23, 2018 alongside with her hubsand Senator “Chiz” Escudero. Everyone already expected the actress to be a standout in the crowd for the event, but she out shun the expectations of people once again.
She wore 2 sets of couture by Mark Bumgarner, and both designs radiated elegance and sophistication.
For the first look which is the opening ceremony of the SONA, she wore a dress. It was a short-cut but it had very minimal detailing to keep the look simple but extremely eye catching. The designer wanted to achieve the “clean and contemporary take of Filipiniana” look.
Always a vision in white. I created Heart Evangelista- Escudero’s @iamhearte clean and contemporary take on the Filipiniana for the opening of the 17th Congress. Her dress is adorned with minimal pleats and ribbon, and tulip butterfly sleeves, with the Pride flag pin as she expresses her support for the Equality Bill. 🌈🌈🌈❤️ #heartevangelista #SONA2018 #markbumgarner #SOGIEBill #equality #terno #filipiniana #LoveIsAllWeNeed
Heart’s second look was a pantsuit – very simple yet lovely. The designer added a touch of Filipino into the modern pantsuit look by designing it with butterfly sleeves.
But what really gave life to the look itself was the pin she kept clipped on the left side of both the looks. Its a small flag with the colors of the rainbow, which is actually the Pride Flag.
Everyone has the right to live, work, and dream. The SOGIE bill is a step in the right direction to guarantee the protection of those rights, especially for our friends in the LGBTQIA+ community. Last year the bill made great progress but we still have a long way to go. My husband and I are in full support of this bill and hope to see it move forward and become a law. 🌈 #sona2018 #LoveIsAllWeNeed
She wanted to wear and show the her support for the LBGTQ community, but also to support the Equality Bill.
Heart Evangelista-Escudero didn’t just steal the SONA runway but also went by wearing the advocacy she believes in. She truly slayed the SONA 2018 with her support and fashion.
