Being part of the first all-Asian cast for a Hollywood film in 25 years titled “Crazy Rich Asians,” Kris Aquino did not disappoint in representing the Philippines and showing the world what it is to be a true Filipino.
Channelling the symbolic colors of her parents during the first People Power Revolution, Kris Aquino wore a yellow gold mermaid dress with a ribbon around her waist embellished with crystals by Michael Leyva.
Leyva shared to MEGA that his inspiration for the dress that Aquino wore at the premiere was a classic Filipiñana with a modern twist because “it is time for Filipino design to be known globally.”
During Aquino’s live Instagram video, Leyva also inaudibly said “I’m so happy” that the Queen of All Media chose to wear his dress among four other dresses that was made for her.
Playing as Princess Intan, the Sultana of Borneo in the movie, Aquino stayed true to her role on the red carpet by opting for a diamond bib necklace partnered with a diamond earrings by Diagold Jewelry.
Crazy Rich Asians will open in cinemas nationwide on August 22, 2018.
