7 Outfits to Live Out Your Crazy Rich Asians Fantasies

Febriana Ramadhanya

Not only is Crazy Rich Asians the first Hollywood movie with an all-Asian cast in over 25 years, it also has some of the most gorgeous and outrageous fashion moments. The film showcases a beautiful mixture of modern haute couture pieces with traditional Peranakan styles. To get you pumped up for its Malaysian release, here are 7 outfits inspired by some of the most iconic moments in the movie.

Rachel’s Reunion Red Dress

Whether she’s in the bustling streets of her hometown in New York or under the sweltering heat of Singapore, our main character always looks put together no matter where she’s at. Rachel was donning a Miu Miu red babydoll dress during her visit to her best friend’s mansion in Singapore, paired with a simple yet sophisticated high ponytail.

Although not a backless skater dress like what Rachel wore, this Stella McCartney dress will give Miu Miu a run for its money. Its sophisticated silhouette can easily be elevated with a contrasting jewellery and it’ll be enough to turn the heads of many.

Araminta’s Glittery Golden Gettup

Araminta’s sparkly gold jumpsuit was specially-designed for the character by the film’s costume designer Mary Vogt and Carven Ong. It perfectly symbolizes Araminta’s youthful, cosmopolitan glam; a style that many modern rich Asians like to adopt nowadays.

The jumpsuit by Kaos is cut quite differently from Araminta’s custom-made one piece; it has a plunging neckline and short, airy sleeves. However, it does feature a similar golden glitter effect akin to the jumpsuit from the movie.

Nick’s White on White Suit

The leading man of Crazy Rich Asians should always be dressed to the T and Nick Young’s wardrobe never disappoint. The white suit from the scene above is perfectly tailored to Henry Golding’s proportions and the addition of the navy pocket square truly elevated the whole ensemble.

Recreate this look with the Boglioli beige cotton and linen blend suit jacket. You can add your own pocket square (preferably navy) and matching trousers to really mimic Nick Young’s dapper style.

Eleanor’s Beaded Ball Gown

The matriarch of the Young family always exudes the utmost elegance and class. During one of the many parties on the film, Eleanor was spotted wearing a gorgeous beige embroidered gown by Elie Saab, complete with a flowy cape and turquoise hems.

With this Marchesa Notte gown, you’ll give focus on the figure-hugging, fringed duck-egg blue tulle and satin. With the addition of the satin, beaded bodice embellished with paillettes and crystals. Top it off with an Eleanor-inspired updo to highlight the plunging back.

Peik Lin’s Quirky Couture

If there’s one thing Rachel’s best friend goes crazy for, it’s animal patterns. Peik Ling’s Markus Lupfer top features white rabbit patterns to contrast with the striking and bold red fabric. She can also be seen wearing a Stella McCartney dog-print pajamas during the reunion scene with Rachel.

The Oscar de la Renta animal printed blouse is a great alternative that very closely resembles Peik Ling’s Markus Lupfer top. Made with 100% silk, this blouse is perfectly fitting for smart-casual settings or during one of your strolls down central KL.

Oliver’s Out-Of-The-Box Suit

Oliver may be Nick’s second cousin but their styles are polar opposites. Oliver prefers ensembles that are more out-of-the-box, just like the Lord’s suit he wore to one of the many soirees in the movie. He topped off the look with a Paul Smith shirt and a pair of Bally sneakers.

Emulate his Oliver’s party look with this Salle Privee navy ross slim fit cotton and linen blend suit jacket. The stitchings on this suit jacket are enough to bring your look out of the box, especially when paired with navy trousers and an eye-catching shirt as well as pocket square.

Rachel’s Cinderella Gown

This scene-stealing pastel chiffon gown from Marchesa contrasts with what Rachel usually wears on the daily. It’s extravagant yet sticks true to Rachel’s poised and put-together personal style.

This cowl neck gown from Moschino has a similar color to the Marchesa gown worn in the film. Although not made from the same fabric, this Moschino gown is enough for you to live out your Cinderella fantasies.
