Before returning to the Philippines, Kris Aquino shared a back shot of her gown from when she shot her scene in the Hollywood film Crazy Rich Asians. Kris wore a yellow Michael Cinco gown as Princess Intan in the movie.

In a long post, she recalled how she felt when she auditioned for the role and when she got to see Filipino-American supporters during the movie’s premiere night. She realized the purpose of her joining the film and said that the support of Filipinos is one of a kind. She then gave a shout out to everyone who helped her with her look.

“I felt when auditioning for this that there was absolutely nothing left to lose & whether I was included or not—I gave it my very best... seeing the proud, smiling faces of all our fellow Filipino Americans lining Hollywood Boulevard made me realize that the greatest gift this movie gave me was that it gave me that special opportunity to make us Filipinos feel good about ourselves & our contribution to the global workforce...

“A part of my heart felt that many of us at one point in our lives have all been made to feel that BUT tonight’s premiere, walking down that imperial green carpet, in a yellow gown w/ a prominent yellow ribbon a lasting, meaningful symbol of sacrifice & the Filipino worth dying for, fighting for, and living for.

“I felt we are SPECIAL because iba ang Filipino pag sumuporta at magmahal... Thank you for truly restoring my FAITH na #kaysarapmagingpilipino,” she wrote.
