Natch may be based in the US but her love for Heart Evangelista knows no bounds. At 52, Natch has amassed an enviable collection of Heart's collaborations with various clothing, accessories, and jewelry brands. "I became a really serious [fangirl] when she turned her paintings into wearable art," she tells Cosmopolitan. "That was a time when she collaborated with Kamiseta, where you get to wear Kamiseta's clothing that features her beautiful paintings and designs. The feeling that I have whenever I wear them is unbelievable. So from then on, I couldn't stop na."
Although Natch has never met Heart in person, she has had several ~unique~ encounters with her! The first of which was seeing Heart's billboard in Times Square IRL: "I was so excited when she had a billboard appearance in Times Square in New York that I had to go there to see it for myself [and] snap some pictures." And the second one was being followed by Heart herself on Instagram: "I was actually floored when that happened."
While Heart's physical beauty is what's most noticeable about her upon first look, it's her passion for her various interests and advocacies that left an undeniable impression on Natch. "There are so many things that I like about Heart," she gushes. "With Heart, what you see is what you get. She is herself talaga. She inspires women to be confident in themselves, to be your own kind of beautiful, and I really like that."
