When Hollywood drops its first story about an Asian American character in a quarter-century, you know it’s gonna be epic.
So when stars of Jon M. Chu’s highly-anticipated “Crazy Rich Asians” walked the emerald carpet of their Hollywood premiere last night, the sight was nothing short of crazy rich.
From Balenciaga to Dolce & Gabbana — and of course, to Asia’s top designers — the cast flaunted the most glamorous ensembles and lived up to a luxurious allure.
Check out some of the looks below!

If you’ll ask me what my unforgettable moment inside the TCL Chinese Theater was- it was being approached by the @wbpictures group chairman Toby Emmerich because he wanted to introduce his favorite staff member from the Beverly Hills Hotel who is a Filipina American. He said that for 25 years she’d been taking such great care of him but had never asked for premiere night tickets except for tonight for @crazyrichasians because she wanted to meet me. It was just so heartwarming how many pictures Mr. Emmerich took of us because it just proved to me that anywhere in the world- our graciousness as a people is valued. I’m sure Bimb & i had the honor of being seated w/ his family because of how much affection a fellow Filipina had for me… @kevinkwanbooks made sure to check on me & as always he expressed so much gratitude for the support of Filipinos worldwide. P.S. Nabalitaan ko po na may konting sagutan na naganap between my brother & Sec Alan Cayetano- sa hindi sinasadyang choice- my clutch came from the Manila Fame & was given by @mayorlanicayetano. #lovelovelove THANK YOU to all the Filipinos who showed up w/ their flags, banners, and patiently waited since lunchtime to get prime spots. Yung effort na binigay nyo i know wasn’t just for me but because of Philippine pride. Uulitin ko po #kaysarapmagingpilipino. This was a chance to represent our country & i thank God for the once in a lifetime blessing. 🇵🇭💛💙❤️ (song credit: Love Moves in Mysterious Ways by @xtianbautista from my Universal Records album My Heart’s Journey)
