Filipino actress Kris Aquino looked like royalty - just like her character Princess Intan - during the world premiere of "Crazy Rich Asians" in Hollywood on Wednesday.

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.

Emily Yoshida from Vulture: "Crazy Rich Asians is, at its heart, a fish-out-of-water story, and it has a lot more going for it than its literal money shots". I could wax poetically about how much I enjoyed it, but I think that with a film like this, hopefully paving the way for more like it in the future, it's important to look at reviews from Asian and Asian-American film critics. "It's a great romance, but it's most powerful as a story of her love with herself". But here we are.

Stephanie Foo from Vox: "I'm Malaysian, and nobody in my family is a billionaire". In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the comedian relayed how far she's come: "Check it out, I used to shop at Claire's at the Queens Center Mall, bro, but then I've got a Reem Acra dress and Giuseppe shoes".

Rivals estimate that Crazy Rich Asians drew around $450K-$500K and are impressed.

Meanwhile, Awkwafina took an Old Hollywood approach to red carpet fashion by wearing a dusty pink Reem Acra ballgown. Directed by Jon M. Chu, it's not only the first studio film featuring Asian Americans since "The Joy Luck Club", but it's also an adaptation of a wildly popular novel (the first of a trilogy) by Kevin Kwan - one that presents fiendish difficulties in transforming to the screen.

Streamlining much of this, to make a coherent two-hour movie, was inevitable, and devout fans of the book might be disappointed by some of the changes.
