Heart Evangelista seems to have grown up right alongside us. We've watched her bloom, fall in love, assert her independence, get over heartbreak, and fall in love again, just as her showbiz career continues to soar. The actress, singer, and TV presenter has been in showbiz since her early teens, and now, at 26, she's ready for her close-up as an adult.
Heart graces her fourth Cosmo cover this month, looking better than ever. She's maintained a good girl image throughout her career, but as she has proven yet again in our recent shoot, she certainly has a sexy, naughty side, too.
This woman in love (with hot Brapanese boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga, whom she met on the set of last year's teleserye Langit Sa Piling Mo) has a lot of anticipated projects coming up, reaffirming her status as the nation's sweetheart.
Editor-in-chief Zo Aguila explains the appeal of our cover girl, saying, "A lot of our readers are younger, and parang they can still relate to Heart. Even if Heart's achieved so much, she's still wide-eyed [and] curious about everything."
During her Cosmo cover shoot, art director Red de Leon notes, "It's always nice to work with Heart 'cause she's very professional, and she's one of the most genuine celebrities... She's also, of course, very pretty. You can't go wrong with photo shoots when it comes to Heart."
Heart's energetic, youthful vibe was captured by photographer Sara Black, who explains that the shoot is all about "bright, bold colors with an attitude to match. It's Heart at her most beautiful."
