Awkwafina took to the red carpet in a blush pink ballgown by the Beirut-based designer.

The hotly-anticipated Crazy Rich Asians had its Hollywood premiere on Tuesday night, and the red carpet looks were just as luxurious as you would expect from a film with that name.

Asian-American rapper Awkwafina, who plays Goh Peik Lin in the movie based on the debut novel by Kevin Kwan, caught our eye in a breathtaking blush pink ballgown by Lebanese designer Reem Acra.

It wasn’t the first time the star has turned to the Beirut-based label – she also wore an ethereal ivory silk jumpsuit by the designer to the premiere of her other major blockbuster this year, Ocean’s 8.
