Last August 30, Heart Evangelista posted a sweet throwback photo of herself with husband, Chiz Escudero. The couple were snapped sharing a serving of Serendipity 3’s famous frozen hot chocolate in New York City. She shared that the photo was taken way back in 2013, about 7 years ago!
Of course, her Instagram followers were quick to point out the changes made in those 7 years. Some comments were quite innocent and well-received like one humorously pointing out “Parang ang nene mo pa dito, a.” Heart replied gamely agreeing: “Yes! Hahahah”
However, other comments seemed to hint at unfavorable comparisons. One user said: “You [looked] so simple back then, no chunky rings and bangles. ‘Di mo aakalaing artista pala. Maybe that is one trait na nagustuhan sa ‘yo ni Chiz.”
Heart quickly disagreed and corrected the user, writing “I wasn’t simple here, actually. I was just feeling sick this day.”
Another comment continued the comparison with “Pero hindi ka nagsusuot ng Hermès at Cartier before. Pero I’m happy for you, Heart! You’ve improved a lot. More fashionable and elegant now!”
Heart clarified “Not really. Had my Cartier since I was a teen. But as I got older I became more bold with my style. I also went through a bohemian look in my twenties. Evolution is amazing! That will be all in my book this September!”
She was referencing her soon-to-be-released book which tells all about her personal style. It seems that her replies to comments on this Instagram post may serve as a teaser in terms of sharing her perspective on how her sense of fashion has or hasn’t changed through the years.
What do you think about the way she handled these comments?
