Heart Evangelista Admires Robredo’s Debate Attire as ‘Chic’, says Chiz

It wasn’t just Vice President Leni Robredo’s performance that stood out during the CNN presidential debate, but also her pink attire.


No less than fashion icon and actress Heart Evangelista praised Robredo’s clothing during the debate, according to her husband, Sorsogon Gov. Chiz Escudero.


Reacting to a comment by Jojo Terencio that Robredo’s outfit suited her well, Escudero tweeted “Agree po… Pati wardrobe tinitingan ko na din hahaha (heart’s influence on me perhaps) and it was also on point.”


According to Escudero, Heart described Robredo’s outfit as “chic”. For him, Escudero said the Vice President’s attire “was elegant yet simple.”


In an earlier tweet, Escudero praised Robredo’s showing, describing the Vice President as “very presidentiable, full of substance, to the point & humble yet confident!”


Robredo responded to Escudero’s tweet saying “Thank you very much, Sen Chiz. Means a lot.”


Celebrities and netizens alike agreed that Robredo was the most prepared among the other presidential bets who attended the debate.


“Great job at the Presidential Debate, Ma’am Leni! That’s MY PRESIDENT!!!” Megastar Sharon Cuneta, wife of Robredo’s running mate Senator Kiko Pangilinan, said in a Facebook post.


“Kahit si @glocdash9 mahihirapan sabihin sa given time lahat ng itunulong ni VP @lenirobredo sa pandemic. Kulang na kulang ang oras para masabi yung sobrang daming nagawa," said stand-up comedian Red Ollero (@comedybyred).


Ahead of the debate, several celebrities shared a photo of Robredo’s arrival at the University of Sto. Tomas and wished her good luck, including actor Edu Manzano, actress Cherry Pie Picache, and singers Bituin Escalante and Sam Concepcion.


"Is this a Presidential look or is this a Presidential look?" tweeted Manzano.


"VP Leni looks Presidential. Wow," singer Sam Concepcion tweeted


"That’s my President!!!," Picache commented.


During the debate, Robredo enumerated her programs during the pandemic, like free test kits, free dormitories, shuttle rides and PPE sets for frontliners, community learning hubs, job-hunting platforms, free tele consult services, and drive-thru vaccination, among others.


The Vice President also committed to be a hands-on president, especially during times of crisis, as it shows leadership. 


"Ako bilang presidente, in every crisis, ako mismo ang mangunguna. Nakita natin during the pandemic na kailangan natin ng isang pangulo na nagli-lead sa front," she said.


"Yung number 1 ingredient ng leadership aside from character is you show up in the most difficult times. Kapag hindi ka nagshow up in the most difficult times, hindi ka leader," she added.


The hashtags #IpanaloNa10To and #10RobredoPresident peaked at No. 2 and No. 4 trending topics worldwide, respectively, during the debate.


As of this writing, #IpanaloNa10To was the No. 3 worldwide trending topic with more than 166,000 tweets while #VPLeni was No. 7 with more than 49,000 tweets.
