Constance Wu wears 200K crystals to ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ premiere


Constance Wu‘s character in “Crazy Rich Asians” would definitely approve of her outfit for the film’s premiere.

On Tuesday, the movie’s leading lady wore a stunning couture gown by Ralph & Russo, the same label that famously designed Meghan Markle’s $75,000 engagement photoshoot dress.

Wu’s off-the shoulder design featured silk fringe and a whopping 200,000 Swarovski crystals, and took a total of 275 hours to construct and 490 hours to hand-embroider, according to Vogue.

“In history, tassels have almost always been a symbol of power and prestige, not to mention they make for a glamorous detail,” Wu’s stylist Micaela Erlanger told the magazine. “This movie is so important for so many reasons, and I felt that Constance should look both powerful and glamorous.”

Though her gown certainly sparkled on its own, Wu accessorized with plenty of jewels — 90 carats’ worth of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds, to be exact.

Erlanger wanted Wu’s final look to reflect the movie’s theme. “The film is based around both luxury and fashion, making a couture red-carpet moment all the more perfect for the world premiere,” she told Vogue.

“Crazy Rich Asians” is the first Hollywood release in 20 years to feature a predominantly Asian cast. It centers on Chinese-American professor Rachel Chu (Wu) and her trip with boyfriend Nick Young (Henry Golding) to Singapore, where she realizes that his family is incredibly wealthy.

Fashion plays such a large role in the film that there were security guards on hand to protect the designer wardrobe.
