Reacting to the Harper’s Bazaar feature, Evangelista said in an Instagram post on Thursday: “I woke up to one of the most amazing features in my life!”

She went on to give details about how she ended up being part of the “Real Crazy Rich Asians” video.

“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 Kevin Kwan who has now become a dear friend! He was doing a special ‘Crazy Rich Couture’ feature for Harper’s Bazaar US and asked me if I would be interested in being a part of it,” she said. 

“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 Harper’s 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!”
