Heart Evangelista dons Filipiniana inspired by late Sen. Miriam Santiago for Paris event 


Even in Paris, Heart Evangelista made sure to show off her roots.  

The actress took to social media to share a snap of her wearing a modern version of a Filipiniana dress by Filipino fashion designer Cheetah Rivera.  

“My kind of Filipiniana by my darling @cheetahriverastudio,” shewrote in the caption.  

On Rivera’s Instagram page, it was revealed that the modern-day terno was named after a very special woman in Evangelista’s life – the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago.  

“This piece is a tribute and a celebration of the strength of a Filipina. Aptly named after the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago,” she wrote.
