Last Tuesday the cast and crew of Crazy Rich Asians walked the jade carpet at the film's premiere in a display of glamour and high style we rarely get to see these days.
It was all in celebration of this Wednesday's opening of the long-awaited film, which is based on Kevin Kwan's bestselling book.
The film follows New Yorker Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Henry Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. Not only is he the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families, but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Michelle Yeoh) taking aim.
Crazy Rich Asians is in theaters this Wednesday. Do you have your tickets yet?
