MANILA – Far from her stints on teen publications and fashion glossies over the past years, actress Heart Evangelista exudes quiet elegance as she appears on the cover of a society magazine.
The former ABS-CBN talent is the cover girl of the July 2014 issue of Lifestyle Asia magazine, which used her real name Love Marie Ongpauco for the blurb.
The Ongpauco family is known for running a number of Filipino restaurant chains in the country.
On the cover, Evangelista is seen wearing a metallic peplum dress by Xernan Orticio with diamond earrings.
The actress, who is in a relationship with Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero, was quoted as saying: “It’s like you’re marrying the whole country… This is how it’s going to be. That I have to share him.”
Last May, Evangelista showcased her paintings in her first art exhibit titled “I am Love Marie” at the Artist Space at Ayala Museum in Makati City.
The actress’ paintings usually depict melancholic women.
