Actress, painter, and Filipino style icon Heart Evangelista is taking her fashion game to new heights. It was announced that she was chosen to be part of Vogue magazine’s VogueWorld 100 list for 2020.Heart broke the news on her Instagram account with a caption saying, “Some news that I’ve been holding in for a while now that I could finally reveal—I was chosen to be part of Vogue 100! This is such an honor, especially to be alongside other amazing individuals from all around the globe!”
VogueWorld 100, which debuted September last year, “is a curated list of distinctive creative voices from around the globe, encompassing actors, artists, musicians, athletes, stylists, activists, chefs, choreographers, videographers, beauty fanatics, glamor girls, and wonderful weirdos of every stripe,” overseen by its visual editor Samantha Adler.

Helping to shape the world in their respective fields of expertise, the chosen individuals will get to meet Condé Nast’s artistic director and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, as they forecast trends, what’s hot in pop culture, and game-changing ideas.
This is not the first time the actress was recognized by an international magazine title. Last August 2018, Heart was among Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s“These Are The Real ‘Crazy Rich Asians’”feature, which became viral. On its February 2019 issue, the magazine also featured one of her art pieces from her “In Full Bloom” collection.
“I would like to thank the Vogue magazine team and Anna Wintour for choosing me,” Heart said.“2020 is looking bright and I can’t wait to bring you all along with me.”
