Paris is Heart Evangelista-Escudero's favorite city. Romantic, fashionable, and picture-perfect, this style icon often finds herself living out her haute couture dreams in France's capital, where she usually graces the Fashion Week.
For this special Metro cover feature, the magazine photographed Heart in some of the city's historical landmarks and tourist spots, clad in a mix of classy, edgy, and dreamy ensembles put together by her dear friend, Metro's executive editor Kat Cruz-Villanueva.
Here, we give you a peek on what went on behind the scenes at the making of this beautiful cover:

Aside from the famous Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe, here are the other locations the Metro team explored for Heart's cover shoot:
Pont Alexandre III
This elegant deck arch bridge in Paris provides links between Les Invalides (the site of Napoleon’s tomb) on the Left Bank and the Champs-Élysées on the Right Bank. It was named after Tsar Alexander III who had a significant contribution to the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1892.
This former royal palace housed royal families before the Palace of Versailles was built. Located on the north of the Louvre Museum, the exquisite Palais Royal gardens make for a peaceful hangout spot for locals and tourists alike.
Pont de Bir-Hakeim
This two-level bridge was built in the early 20th century. Not only a sight to behold (it gives one a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower, too!), it also functions as a railway on the upper level and a passage for vehicles on the lower level.
Popular to editors, stylists, and fashion bloggers, this street is where museums and upscale boutiques can be found. Not to be confused with rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré (where major fashion houses like Dior, Givenchy and Hermès are located), rue Saint-Honoré features a good mix of well-known and niche brands.
A square in Paris that features classical urban design, this was built upon the orders of Louis XIV for the purpose of embodying absolute power in the heart of Paris. Many years later, it has become a place where a showcase of luxury goods may be best seen and experienced.
Rue de l'Université
Rue de l'Université is the street that provided the stunning backdrop for Heart's Metro magazine cover shoot. It is best known for the fancy establishments and the beautiful Eiffel Tower view it offers.
