There will be a big contingent of regional movie stars attending tonight's first ever Asian Film Awards at the Convention and Exhibition Centre.

However, there will also be one big fashion luminary on the red carpet tonight.

The scruffy middle-aged man on Michelle Yeoh Choo-kheng's arm tonight is not some new rich Euro beau, though. Italian sexy couture creator Roberto Cavalli (right) will be the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star's escort. Naturally, she will be wearing one of his slinky designs.

As part of Cavalli's short official visit, he is also being feted by Swank director David Hong Kin-hay with a lunch at IFC Mall's H One restaurant this afternoon with a group of tai tais, and he will be doing some media interviews tomorrow.
