A front-row regular at international fashion shows, Heart Evangelista has solidified her place as the country's top celebrity fashionista.
Now, the 35-year-old Kapuso actress is embarking on another partnership with a luxury brand. This time, it's French luxury brand Dior.
Heart is probably the first local celebrity to get her hands on Bobby, Dior's new "It bag."
She already did a mini photoshoot with the bag at her home and uploaded it on Instagram last June 11, 2020, Thursday.
For the caption, she thanked the luxury brand for picking her to promote the bag in the country.
She wrote, "This Fall 2020, @dior unveils Bobby, a symbol of timeless modernity, and an ode to Christian Dior’s beloved dog. [dog emoji]
"Thank you to the Dior Team for choosing me to be part of this wonderful project. [Philippine Flag and Heart emoji] #Filipina #Dior #DiorBobby/"
Aside from Heart, several South Korean actresses own the Dior Bobby bag.
Vagabond star Bae Suzy has the same size as Heart's bag but in amber.
Bae also uploaded an OOTD last June 11, Thursday, with her bag.
Weightlifting Fairy: Kim Bok Joo star Lee Sung Kyung has the large version in white, with the brand's signature guitar strap.
The Dior Bobby Messenger is a design of Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior's creative director for its women's collections.
The bag first appeared on the brand's Pre-fall 2020 collection unveiled December 2019.
It made its official runway debut at Dior's Fall / Winter ready-to-wear 2020 fashion show last February 2019.
Dior officially launched the bag June 2020.
It is made of oblique and calfskin leather, and it can be bought with either the brand's signature guitar strap or traditional skinny leather strap.
There are three sizes currently available.
The large bag is available for USD3,900 or around PHP195,000, according to spottedfashion.com.
The medium bag comes with a price tag of USD3,300 or around PHP165,000.
And the small bag is the cheapest at USD2,900 or around PHP145,000.
