How many Singaporean actors can you fit on one red carpet? The Crazy Rich Asians premiere in Los Angeles on Wednesday (Aug 8) showed that yes, the Singaporean presence in Hollywood is out in full force, along with other power-list Asians including Michelle Yeoh, Kris Aquino and Henry Golding. 

Held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the stars walked the red carpet for the movie, set in Singapore and based on the novel of the same name by Singapore-born Kevin Kwan.
