The excitement around Crazy Rich Asians has reached fever pitch, and it seems that there's no one more excited than Kris Aquino, who's set to play the role of Princess Intan in the much-anticipated film. She is portraying royalty, so it comes as no surprise that, for her scene, she's wearing none other than Michael Cinco.


Here's a sneak peek at her dress: 

This is the back shot of the gown i wore as Princess Intan in @crazyrichasians, created by @michael5inco who originally came from #Samar... i chose this picture as my last post before we fly home because for the rest of my life i shall look back at the experience of being part of @crazyrichasians as a turning point... 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... There’s a point in the movie when Rachel (@constancewu) is told that she would never be “enough” -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-made by a young Filipino designer @michaelleyva_ in his #Rizal workshop by Filipino cutters & sewers, wearing jewelry lent to me by @diagoldjewelry based in #Cebu, w/ makeup done by @rbchanco who traces her roots to #Laguna & #Masbate, and my hair styled by @pinantonio; i am this girl whose parents hail from #Tarlac, #Bulacan, and #Antipolo, w/ her son who can also trace his roots to the #Negros Region, watching myself on that big TCL Chinese theater screen w/ makeup done by #Bicolano @juansarte & hair by #Butuan born & raised @nantealingasa & @jonathanvelasco__ from #Quezon City, styled by Filipino Chinese @kimiyap & @boopyap, i felt we are SPECIAL because we are so generous with opening up our hearts... iba ang Filipino pag sumuporta at magmahal... Thank you for truly restoring my FAITH na #kaysarapmagingpilipino ????????

Absolutely regal, don't you think? We're so excited to see it on the big screen soon! 

Of creating Kris' costume, Michael previously told Preview, "Her role is a princess so I made a fully callado-inspired embroidery on her dress that is made out of tulle and chiffon." He also dished on what it was like to work with the country's Queen of All Media. "[She] is one of the kindest souls I’ve ever known," he said, also adding that the actress personally messaged him "about the design that she likes with the help of her stylists, the uber fabulous Kimi and Boop Yap."

Known for his extraordinary artistry, Michael Cinco creates luxurious and elegant couture gowns that would make anyone who'd wear them look undeniably like royalty. Check out these other beautiful Michael Cinco creations:
