If there's one person who deserves a Vogue cover, it's Heart Evangelista. And indeed she finally became one for the November issue of the Philippine edition of the "world's most revered magazine."

In a social media post, the magazine commended the actress for her nearly decade of dedication to fashion, and becoming an "ambassador of style."

“Having been at the front row of fashion weeks for close to a decade, #HeartEvangelista has established herself as a Philippine ambassador of style,” it wrote. 

"As she capped off another month filled with appearances in Europe, Heart’s first shoot with Vogue Philippines in Paris served as a moment to exhale," Vogue Philippines added. 

Heart, meanwhile, expressed her gratefulness to the team, who flew into Paris for the shoot in a separate post.

"They built this story around this love affair I have with Fashion Week, what I do for fashion. It was so nice to work with all these people who flew in [to Paris]. There’s this magic about first times," Heart said in the Instagram post.

She also thanked the Vogue Philippines and her team in Paris for the opportunity, saying, “26 years of hard to work … thank you for embracing 'Me.'”

The photographs were taken by Fabien Montique, who said working with the actress was a breeze.

“When I shoot influencers, it’s [sometimes] hard because they don’t let go, but with Heart, she was so into the process and just being easy,” Fabien told Vogue Philippines.

She was styled by Melissa Levy, who dressed dressed her in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton, glammed by Stoj Bulic for makeup and Olivier de Vriendt for hair.

Heart traveled worldwide recently as she attended the Paris, Milan, and New York Fashion Weeks in back-to-back successions. 

She started her way into fashion when she was invited to attend the Paris Fashion Week for the first time in 2017.

In 2018, she was invited by Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan to star in Harper’s Bazaar's special feature, soon after becoming a staple at Fashion Week.

In 2023, Heart topped the Asia-Pacific list of influencers and celebrities who brought the most Media Impact Value (MIV) to the Haute Couture shows at $1.27 million (P70.8 million). She is also part of Lefty's Top 10 list of Southeast Asia Influencers during the SS24 Season.
