Heart Evangelista is back in Paris, and first on her agenda is attending the prestigious debutante ball called Le Bal des Débutantes, or simply Le Bal.
On her Instagram post today, November 27, 2022, the Kapuso actress shared that she met with celebrity couple Charlene Gonzalez and Aga Muhlach whose daughter Atasha was among the debutantes headlining the ball.
Seen in the group photo were Heart and Philippine Tatler editor-in-chief Anton San Diego together with Charlene and Aga.
Heart's caption read: "Pinoy pride at the Le Bal des Debutantes 2022 [Philippine flag]
"So proud of this young woman for representing the country tonight @atashamuhlach_ [heart emoji]
"Lovely seeing @antonsd and congratulations to the proud parents @itsmecharleneg @agamuhlach317 [clap emoji]."
For her part, Charlene was thrilled to see Heart at the event.
Replying to Heart's post, Charlene wrote, "Lovely as ever Heart [heart emoji] nice catching up with you [lovestruck emoji] you are gorgeous inside and out [heart emoji]."

ATASHA ESCORTED BY BROTHER ANDRES
It was a memorable night for Atasha who attended the ball with brother Andres as her escort.
When she entered the ballroom at the posh Shangri-La hotel, Atasha was introduced as a "daughter of an award-winning film actor."
Atasha and Andres were all smiles as they walked in front of the high-profile guests who cheered them on.
FULL SUPPORT FROM MOM CHARLENE
The siblings then made an exit heading to an adjacent room where their ever supportive mom Charlene was waiting with Heart.
Charlene and Heart were both ready with their mobile phones to capture Atasha looking ecstatic and more relaxed after that nerve-wracking moment in the spotlight.
Here's another snap of Atasha gesturing that she enjoyed the whole experience.
WHAT IS Le Bal des DÈbutantes?
Founded by Ophélie Renouard in 1994, Le Bal des Débutantes is a by-invitation-only ball that brings together 20 carefully chosen daughters of high-profile personalities, Hollywood elite, royal houses, and families from prestigious backgrounds.
It's much like a modern-day version of a debutante ball seen from the popular romance novel-turned-Netflix series, Bridgerton.
But more than a fashion event, Le Bal aims to raise funds for charities that support young women.
This year, the chosen beneficiary is the Necker-Enfants Malades hospital, which opened on May 8, 1802, and is known to be "the first pediatric hospital created in the world" to help children.
According to Le Bal's official website, "more than 2,000 children are treated each year with cardiac surgery and Percutaneous Interventional Procedures" in the said hospital.
