3 Styling Lessons We Learned From Heart Evangelista's Paris Couture Week Outfits

We are still on a Paris Haute Couture Week high! We weren't just mesmerized by the otherworldly fashion we saw on the runways, but by the amount of eye candy on the streets too. And one such lady who served eye candy is none other than one of our favorite stylish ladies, Heart Evangelista! The self-confessed fashion lover gave us even more reasons to love her—on-point makeup looks, creative hairstyles, and enviable ensembles!

Check out Kat's top 3 styling tips to steal below:

 

1. "For this season, we tried to work with a lot of separates. Easy pieces we could possibly mix, match, or layer with items sent by brands in case the items don’t fit well."

 

Heart was all smiles painting the Parisian town red with her little lady guest Chesi Escudero. Here she rocks separates: a Gucci bomber jacket, a black bandeau, and a pleated #LMxKamiseta skirt!

 

Another stunning look on Heart was this Delpozo sheer flouncy top and brocade volumized skirt—stunningly punctuated by disheveled locks and a perfect face!

2. "We also prepared a lot of accessories. Since brands sent clothes for her to wear, accessories were our main tool to make the outfit her own."

 

Local designer Popo Go reworked Heart's #LMxKamiseta scarves and transformed it into a beautiful dress which was then perfectly styled with a tiny Hermés sling bag, Ulyana Sergeenko shades, and stacked Gas Bijoux gold cuffs.

 

This edgy Gaultier dress was perfectly complemented by a striking royal blue Hermés sling bag, a Dior sun charm bracelet, Cartier watch, her wedding and engagement rings, and Royal Gem chain bracelets.

 

Heart showcased her beautiful Shop Maison Love Marie bauble bag together with her Dior sun charm bracelet, Cartier watch, and Gas Bijoux gold cuffs against that stunning Antonio Grimaldi outfit.

 

This brocade Delpozo skirt served as the perfect backdrop for Heart's stacks of bracelets and rings [see credits above] and that chic Mark Bumgarner handbag. Oh and did we forget to mention those adorable Rene Caovilla floral strappy heels?

3. "Weather also played a big part in the outfit selection. Paris was experiencing a heat wave before we arrived so we expected the weather to be quite warm and opted for light and breezy pieces."

 

We could never imagine Paris being in the middle of a heatwave, as Heart is able to still rock her outfits without breaking a sweat! She does so in a Bono Van Peursem suit matched with a bare midriff, Hermés sling bag, and that signature hypnotizing stare.

 

Heart teases with a Gaultier show invite, while showcasing her skin-baring ensemble which we must say, is still very classy and chic, as Heart always does. 

 

This beautiful creation by Antonio Grimaldi is one of our all-time favorite Heart Evangelista looks, for its perfect ability to create that effortlessly chic yet comfortable number that's not easy to achieve. It shows the right balance of skin, sass, and je ne sais quoi!
