There is a time for everything under the heavens. And it is now the time of international fashion icon and influencer Heart Evangelista to have her catwalk moment and shine even brighter.

Fresh from the success of her engagements at the Milan Fashion Week, Heart made her much-awaited runway debut at the Paris Fashion Week by opening the show of renowned Vietnamese fashion designer Phan Huy on Sunday, 3 March.

Wearing an elegant see-through tube peplum gown with a deep “V” reaching her navel, the style queen exuded elegance as she sashayed confidently and effortlessly at the show’s opening held at the historic mansion Maison de L’amerique Latine, located at 217 Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris.

Heart wore a design from the Tam Giang Lagoon Collection, which according to Huy, draws inspiration from the serene waters of Central Vietnam.

In her runway debut, Heart’s hair was elegantly slicked back, and the accessories remained minimal, except for the perfectly coordinated black gloves. The show was impeccably styled by Steven Doan, chief brand officer of Phan Huy.

Still ecstatic from opening the show, the five-foot-two fashionista later wrote on her Instagram account, “Small girl, big dreams 😊”, with a photo showing her side by side with towering models.

Expressing her reflections after her “moment,” Heart further wrote: “So grateful for everything. Work hard, never step on others just to get ahead, focus on your goals, and enjoy each process. Good or bad and one day… little by little you shall be living your dream.”

Indeed, from the streets of Paris and Milan to having her unforgettable catwalk debut, Heart’s journey exemplifies the potency of unwavering determination and foresight in achieving one’s ambitions. In the realm of fashion, Heart Evangelista, no doubt, stands unchallenged as its reigning queen.

Aside from inauguration Huy’s collection, Heart is attending various fashion shows and wearing the creations by Hermes, Alexander MacQueen, Manolo Blahnik, Giambattista Valii, YSL, and Louis Vuitton, among others.

The Paris Fashion Week started on 26 February and concluded on 5 March.
