Kris Aquino attended the Hollywood CRA Event. And she did not disappoint! The girl in yellow stood out on the emerald carpet, and owned it. Philippines, represent!
We all might also want to watch the movie, since it’s 100% on Rotten Tomatoes 🙂
*Update: it’s 93% on rotten tomatoes now 8-25-18. still not too shabby, and, has topped the US Box Office for 2 weeks now. not too shabby indeed.
Here, I’ve compiled gushing writes from all over social media:
There is, however, someone who may outshine them all. Chris Pang, who plays Colin Khoo in the movie (he’s the one getting married), calls her the true “Crazy Rich Asian”. That would be Kris Aquino, arguably the most famous woman in the Philippines. My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, called her the most beautiful woman in the movie. You will love her scene. Cannot wait to see what she wears tonight.
Kris Aquino made her Hollywood red carpet debut for the premiere of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ on Tuesday (August 7), and it’s safe to say it will never be forgotten.
Because i live in a country where I am called FilChi, Chinoy, Intsik, and, sadly never really Filipino, I say YES to this! @allymaki
Yes. “We are all one. We are storytellers.”
And, about the movie soundtrack :
Excerpt from Chu’s letter “From being called the word in a derogatory way throughout grade school, to watching movies where they called the cowardly people yellow, it’s always been a negative connotation in my life,“ he wrote. “That is, until I heard your song. For the first time in my life, it described the color in the most beautiful, magical ways I had ever heard: the color of the stars, her skin, the love.”
