Heart Evangelista makes a stand for the LGBT community in her red carpet look at President Rodrigo Duterte's 3rd State of the Nation address today, July 23.

Wearing an all-white, three-piece Filipiniana-inspired ensemble, Heart has pinned the LGBT rainbow flag on the upper left side of her blazer to show her support for the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity or Expression (SOGIE) Equality Bill, which awaits passage into law at the Senate.

Heart wrote on Instagram, "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 LGBT 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"

The GMA-7 actress has been attending the SONA and opening of the Senate session since 2015, when she married Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero.

From then on, the 33-year-old Kapuso star has been named best dressed personality at every SONA.

This year,  she wore two all-white creations of her designer best friend Mark Bumgarner.

Heart completed her OOTD with an Elie Saab handbag.

Here's the full body photo of Heart's SONA 2018 look:

Early today, Heart wore a tea-length terno with tulips-inspired butterfly sleeves for the opening session of the 17th Congress at Batasang Pambansa Complex in Quezon City.

She completed her look with a pair of Christian Louboutin peep-toed high-heels and paired with a beige-colored Hermes Mini-Kelly bag.

Her glam team included Albert Kurniawan for makeup and Jerry Buanjavier for her hair.

Heart's stylist BFF Kat Cruz helped dress her up for the event.
