Expectations are high for the upcoming release of Crazy Rich Asians, the Singapore-set film based on the bestselling book of the same title by author Kevin Kwan.

America will embrace Crazy Rich Asians movie, Kevin Kwan says

If you’re a fashion lover, one of the best parts of reading the novel is the name-dropping of high-end labels throughout the book. From Giambattista Valli and vintage Saint Laurent, to one-of-a-kind jewellery, the top brands from Paris and beyond make constant appearances in the storyline.

If the fabulous outfits worn by the stars of the film at the Los Angeles premiere are any indication, we can expect it to be full of over-the-top couture concoctions and dazzling jewellery.

Here’s a round-up of some of the best looks from the premiere at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

The film opens in cinemas in the US on August 15 and in Hong Kong on August 23.
