For Philippine TV’s Sweetheart Heart Evangelista-Escudero, style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.

Identified as one of Philippines’ fashion icons, Heart admits that aside from her sophisticated love for whites, she is a lover of designer bags, particularly that of Hermes Birkins and Kellys.

A week ago, the Instagram followers of the Juan Happy Love Story star were stunned with her newest handbag acquisition. It was a 25-centimeter Himalayan Birkin, which according to Vogue.com, is the ‘rarest and most desirable handbag in the world.’

According to reports, her new arm candy features subtle coloration, made from the hide of a Niloticus croc and goes through the same painstaking dyeing process to achieve that delicate blanc hue.

Minus the bling, the Himalayan Birkin is reportedly being sold online for more or less $150,000 to Hermes’ most trusted VIPs such as model and socialite Kim Kardashian, Hollywood star Victoria Beckham and well-known fashion designer Rachel Zoe.

To date, Heart is the first Filipina actress to own the hefty priced handbag.
