'Crazy Rich Asians' movie premieres in LA

Constance Wu Henry Golding Crazy Rich Asians Premiere

On Wednesday, some movie-goers at Ronnie's Marcus Cinema in South County got to see an advanced showing of the highly anticipated movie "Crazy Rich Asians".

She graced the elegant event in a yellow classic modern Filipiniana by young Filipino designer Michael Leyva. She also took time to interact with fans and with reporters. "Maraming salamat po sa effort n'yo to show your love & support!"

"She's a highlight of the movie, for me, she's a highlight", he said in a video shared by Aquino on Instagram.

The gowns were made by designers Francis Libiran and Michael Leyva respectively, with two of the gowns in a blush pink hue.


Director Jon M. Chu said no single movie could represent all the Asian people in the world but he hoped the plot and the array of actors in "Crazy Rich Asians" would show that "we're layered and complicated and not just the token computer guy or the sex kitten".

Wu, who plays Rachel Chu, the film's heroine, arrived to the premiere clad in a sparkling, embellished silver Ralph & Russo couture gown with an off-the-shoulder neckline and fringed sleeves. Rachel is forced to learn and navigate a new culture, meet jealous socialites who think she is just after Nick's money and try to win over her boyfriend's critical mother. It's there that she discovers that her boyfriend's family well-off and that Nick is one of Singapore's most eligible bachelors.

Queen of All Media Kris Aquino dazzled in a show-stopping yellow modern Filipiniana gown, as she graced the Hollywood premiere of "Crazy Rich Asians" today, August 8 (Aug. 7 in the United States) at the TCL Chinese Theater on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
