UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — Filipina actress and host Kris Aquino has stolen the spotlight during a movie premiere in Hollywood.
Aquino attended the premiere of the movie “Crazy Rich Asians” on August 7 just days after she suffered from an alarming allergy attack.
The Philippines’ “Queen of All Media” wore a Michael Leyva gown and took time to greet gushing Filipino fans on the venue.
In an interview with TV5, Aquino said she chose the gown because of the yellow ribbon it had — something she felt symbolized the legacy of her parents, Benigno and Corazon Aquino.
Aquino said, “It’s my honor to proudly represent the Philippines.”
In “Crazy Rich Asians,” Aquino plays a Malay princess named Princess Intan.
The movie is based on Kevin Kwan’s books telling the story of a girl who travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family she didn’t know was extremely rich.
