After suffering from a severe allergy attack in Indonesia, Kris Aquino, who is still recuperating, convinced her sisters to let her attend the Hollywood red carpet premiere of the Warner Brothers film Crazy Rich Asians where she portrayed the role of a princess.
In her Instagram post, she explained that her two sons, along with her glam team, trusted doctor, and assistants would join her on her US trip.
“Ang pinaka importante for me, this was my one chance to represent our country and showcase Philippine designs proudly made in the Philippines for a Hollywood red carpet event…” she said.
She will be wearing gowns made by acclaimed Filipino designers like Francis Libiran, Jun Escario, and Michael Leyva.

Kasama yung 2 boys & @bincailuntayao, @rbchanco & @rochelleahorro 2. Sasamahan & babantayan ng very caring & trustworthy doctor; 3. Susunod si @alvingagui (w/ my Filipiniana gowns) & @nix722; 4. Maraming kaibigan na Fil-Am in the medical field sa LA; and ang pinaka importante for me, this was my 1 chance to represent our country & showcase Philippine designs proudly made in the 🇵🇭 for a Hollywood red carpet event... i hoped they’d understand that if @crazyrichasians would be the last movie listed in my acting credits, their baby sister was given the best finale to something she dreamed of since she could talk & passionately loved for 31 years starting w/ @motherlilym’s “Mother Studio Presents” on @gmanetwork in 1987- BECAUSE in 2018 she was portraying a PRINCESS in a grand @wbpictures production. (Before this is misinterpreted- i have many endorsement commitments & TALK/lifestyle streaming programs i am excited to work on- BUT portraying any full length roles now seems unlikely in the foreseeable future because of the limitations that my current state of health imposes.) #gratitude #proudpinoy #ichooselove 💛💙❤️
