Heart vs. Marian — over ‘fake’ Dolce & Gabbana t-shirt?
It seems like a fashion war is brewing between Kapuso actresses Heart Evangelista and Marian Rivera, a possible war started off by their supporters.
It all began with an Instagram post by @fashionpulis, where the two actresses were made the subject of an online fashion face-off called “Who wore it better?”
Next thing you know, netizens could not help but fight over their bets.
Many netizens were noticeably engaged in the said post, until one user by the handle @anne_bonhomme came in and accused Rivera of wearing a “fake” Dolce & Gabbana shirt. The commenter gave justifications to support her claim.
She was then answered by an Instagram account with the handle @thedantesfamily, which posts photos of Rivera, husband actor Dingdong Dantes and daughter Maria Letizia (Zia) Dantes. This Instagram account told @anne_bonhomme to first do her research.
Nonetheless, @anne_bonhomme still asserted her claim, saying she’s simply telling the truth and has no intention to be mean. She further explained that @thedantesfamily should properly compare the photos to see the difference.
This then called the attention of @loveluxebags, a lifestyle consultant who appears to be a personal shopper for Rivera, as per its official website loveluxebags.com. The lifestyle consultant struck back at @anne_bonhomme in Rivera’s defense.
The lifestyle consultant asserted that [she] is “a personal shopper contacted by Gabbana themselves” and “flew to [Singapore] to preview their collection in Asia.” The account also taunted @anne_bonhomme with questions such as “What else is there to prove?” and “What size do you wear? ‘Coz I shop for [a] model who wear[s] XXS or 0. Grow up, move on and let go of your baggage.”
In the end, @loveluxebags tagged its lawyer by the handle @kdfrias, and wrote, “Someone is trying to do something again. Same group, nonetheless. You know what to do.”
Meanwhile, @thedantesfamily shared photos earlier posted by @loveluxebags that allegedly prove the genuineness of Rivera’s Dolce & Gabbana shirt.
After the consecutive posts in defense of Rivera, the Instagram page of Evangelista’s supporter was deactivated.
Netizens also seemed to notice @anne_bonhomme’s sudden disappearance from the thread and on Instagram.
Meanwhile, @anne_bonhomme remains tagged in some photos at Evangelista’s official Instagram account.
Heart Evangelista and Marian Rivera have had personal differences with each other dating back to 2011. In 2015, both actresses declared that they have moved on from these issues. With this latest fashion controversy, will animosity be stirred again between the two? JB
