Heart Evangelista's OOTDs in China Make Us Wish The 'China Rich Girlfriend' Rumors Are True!

Metro Most Stylish woman Heart Evangelista is currently in China—and rumor has it that she flew all the way there to film the Crazy Rich Asians sequel!

While nothing has been confirmed yet, we completely understand where the speculations might have come from—after all, the plot of China Rich Girlfriend is mostly set in China (obviously!), and the celebrity has been staying in the country for more than a week.

Last year, it was also revealed that Heart auditioned for the role of Araminta Lee in Crazy Rich Asians—unfortunately, she did not get cast. However, she was spotted walking around Paris with Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan, igniting rumors that she could be starring in the movie sequel.


The speculations circulated once again when Albert Kurniawan?, Heart's go-to makeup artist, posted a photo of the actress on Instagram:

 Starting this year's hustle with my muse Missy @iamhearte, and I'm so excited for her new project! I'm incredibly happy for you dear. You truly deserve every blessing coming your way. #TopSecret See you in one month's time! Kaya mo yan dear.


Heart also hinted that she was working on a "top secret" project when she uploaded a photo on the same day:

I looked out my window today, [and] I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude. Here I am about to embark on an adventure like no other and I couldn’t be more excited.


Fans and fashion enthusiasts alike have been coming up with their own predictions as to what role Heart could possibly play in China Rich Girlfriend. The most popular guess is Colette Bing, the billionaire girlfriend of Rachel Chu's half-brother. Without a doubt, Heart Evangelista would be perfect to play the role of Colette—just like the character, she is a stylish socialite, a social media influencer, and according to Harper's Bazaar, a real-life Crazy Rich Asian!


EXCLUSIVE: “Crazy Rich Asian” Heart Evangelista-Escudero On What It’s Like Working With Her Fashion Stylist, Metro Editor Kat Cruz-Villanueva



I woke up to one of the most amazing features in my life! My last trip to Paris was a very special one because not only was I there for couture week but I had been invited by @kevinkwanbooks who has now become a dear friend! He was doing a special ‘Crazy Rich Couture’ feature for Harpers Bazaar US and asked me if I would be interested in being a part of it. I had the honor of being featured alongside some of the most incredible and stylish Asian icons. I am beyond grateful to Kevin and the entire Harpers team for being such a dream to work with! I’m so incredibly proud of this project and would love for you to see it too! Grab the September issue of Harpers Bazaar US or click the link in my bio! ?? @harpersbazaarus

Could the rumors be true? Nobody knows for sure—but we'd be pretty ecstatic if they were! In the mean time, let's take a look at all the chic travel outfits Heart has been wearing on her trip. In contrast to the high fashion, couture week-appropriate outfits Heart usually wears on her travels, the #OOTDs she's been sporting in China are much simpler—we're talking about leggings and sneakers! However, the actress manages to maintain her sophisticated aura, pulling off each look with undeniable class. Spoiler alert: her ultra chic outfits are definitely something even Astrid Teo would approve!

For your dose of casual glam inspo, scroll ahead!


Heart sure knows how to turn coffee breaks fashionable. Dressed in a fur top and thigh high boots, she makes sipping coffee by a water fountain so elegant! Her companion? A no-fail Birkin!


The actress and vlogger sports a monochromatic look. All clad in comfy pieces, she makes a style statement in leggings, a coat, a cap, and a trusty pair of white sneakers. Her backpack of choice? Louis Vuitton, of course!


Here's Heart's own feminine take on athleisure. The fashion icon dons a bold, multi-colored coat over an all-black sporty ensemble. "These past few days have been so hectic so I’ve been wearing workout clothes all the way! Tired but happy," she writes.


In between busy days, Heart manages to dress up in her signature feminine look! In lieu of sneakers and leggings, she dons a classic black dress underneath a tweed Louis Vuitton jacket, accessorizing with a dainty Chanel brooch and a mini Hermès sling bag.

You can never go wrong with the basics! Heart's jet black hair and plain white turtleneck outfit is perfectly complemented by the vibrant flowers in this photo. 


Casual, but make it fashion! Heart roams around the city in a streetwear outfit worth the double take. All clad in a white sports bra and pants ensemble, she elevates her look with an eye-catching piece—a hybrid denim and fur jacket!
