There's no denying it: Crazy Rich Asians is a BIG DEAL. It's the first major Hollywood production in 25 years with a predominantly Asian cast. The film is based on Kevin Kwan's best-selling novel published in 2013, the first of a trilogy, and is directed by Jon M. Chu, who also worked on movies such as Step Up 2: The Streets and Now You See Me 2.
Earlier this month, Kris Aquino announced that she plays the role of Princess Intan, a member of royalty, in the film. (Fun fact: Chris Pang, who plays Colin Khoo, has actually called her "the real crazy rich Asian.")
Today is the film's red carpet premiere in Hollywood and thanks to technology, we get to see what it's like to actually be there. Kris posted a video featuring her outfit choices prior to the premiere on Instagram, yellow and pink gowns by designers Francis Libiran and Michael Leyva.
Her live video on IG shows us her final choice, a yellow off-shoulder creation by Michael Leyva.
Here's a better look at Michael's stunning gown:
Here are shots where we get a closer look at her jewelry from Diagold:
