10 Aug – After much back and forth, Kris Aquino recently made her appearance at the premiere of "Crazy Rich Asians" looking stunning in her Michael Leyva dress.
As reported on PEP, the actress, who plays a royalty in the new Hollywood movie, recently shared several clips before and at the premiere at the TCL Chinese Theater on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where she can be seen opting the royal yellow dress that pays homage to her mother, the late former President Corazon Aquino.
In one clip, she can be seen approaching fans with placards and banners that read "Welcome Kris Aquino, Queen of All Media, Pride of the Philippines!
She wrote, "This was the reason we made the effort to be here.... it is my honor to proudly represent the Philippines. Thank you for the effort in showing your love and support!"
Son Bimby also appeared at the event wearing the traditional barong.
In another post, Aquino revealed that one of the most memorable moments at the premiere was being approached by Warner Bros. Pictures' Group Chairman Toby Emmerich, who wanted to introduce his favorite Fil-Am staff member from the Beverly Hills Hotel.
"He said that for 25 years she'd been taking such great care of him but had never asked for premiere night tickets except for tonight for [Crazy Rich Asians] because she wanted to meet me. It was just so heartwarming how many pictures Mr. Emmerich took of us because it just proved to me that anywhere in the world- our graciousness as a people is valued."
Aside from the yellow number, Aquino previously revealed that she brought four other dresses to the US, all designed by Leyva and another Filipino famed designer Francis Libiran.
