Heart Evangelista causes a stir for carrying bottle of Chanel No. 5 in an airplane
How did Heart Evangelista get away with carrying a bottle of perfume and water inside a plane, even though it is against the rules?
Evangelista posted her view from a plane seat while traveling to another country, as seen in a photo she posted on Instagram last Thursday, Sept. 20. Aside from some fashion magazines and a pouch, the photo showed a bottle of the perfume Chanel No. 5 and Evian bottled water.
One netizen, @pamswineglass, noticed the perfume and commented, “Funny how that [C]hanel #5 wasn’t confiscated.”
Agreeing with her was another netizen, @iamsweetcherry, who also wondered how come the perfume bottle was not confiscated, although the bottled water could have been provided by plane staff, she said.
The two started a conversation where more people joined in. One @simplyyourjulz said she thought there is a certain a certain size of bottle or amount of liquid contained therein allowable inside the plane. Meanwhile, one @eciroj said Evangelista was able to do so because she was seated in business class.
More netizens chimed in, discussing the size of the perfume bottle, with some saying it is in travel size and others saying it is beyond the allowable size.
To end their speculations, the actress herself stated that the bottle was only for 50 milliliters: “I make sure I can bring in the plane or else.” As for the bottled water, she said it was indeed provided by staff.
It appears that the actress jetted off to Milan in time for the Milan Fashion Week. In another post, Evangelista sported a black and gray jacket over a yellow top, matched with a checkered skirt and white pointy shoes, while walking beside parked scooters.
Evangelista may have created a stir among her followers, but it only goes to show that they are aware of the rules of what not to bring when riding an airplane. JB
