Weddings aren't the only milestone events worth dressing up for. Your first gig as a godmother (or ninang, as we say in Filipino) deserves as much sartorial attention, because let's be honest—we want our godkids to look back at the photos and be amazed. And if there's anyone who can show us how to be the most stylish one in church, it's none other than Heart Evangelista.
To fulfill her own "ninang duties," Heart headed out clad in a foolproof all-white look. The ensemble was a mix of classic yet trendy picks, like a sleeveless vest and effortless wide leg trousers. Needless to say, the combination is your best chic alternative to a breezy little white dress.
Heart appears to have shopped her look from every style star's new go-to destination: Aritzia. She likely opted for an oversized fit of a Wilfred vest and paired it with white linen trousers from the same brand. You can shop the exact pieces below, but if we're being honest, you can probably replicate this 'fit with stuff that's already in your closet!

Heart didn't leave the look at that, obviously. Accessories were a must to add some spice, and she went for a stack of gold and silver bracelets, rings, gold mules, and black sunnies from Privé Revaux to really drive that cool ninang vibe home.
But if we were to pick the true scene-stealer in this look, it would definitely be the Chanel Duma Backpack slung chicly on her shoulder. ICYDK, this petite bag was originally launched in the '90s, but was recently re-released by the French fashion house in a 2022 collection. So in case you've failed to score a vintage one, you now have a second chance.
