The cast of “Crazy Rich Asians” made quite the splash at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday.

From Henry Golding in a rose-gold jacket by Tom Ford to Gemma Chan in a blush-pink Oscar de la Renta gown cascading with ruffles, the actors from the film covered the style spectrum at the Shrine Auditorium.

No stranger to awards shows, Michelle Yeoh was a pillar of elegance in a sleeveless greige gown from Elie Saab’s spring/summer 2018 haute couture collection. Combined with an embroidered tulle bodice of metallic threads and sequins, the skirt fluttered with ostrich feathers. She lived up to the standards set by her ultra-wealthy character by sporting her own expensive timepiece designed by luxury watchmaker Richard Mille.

As the leading lady in a cast nominated for outstanding performance in a motion picture, Constance Wu also experimented with eye-catching accessories. Above her left elbow, she slid a sleek band that matched her sleeveless column gown by Oscar de la Renta.

Throughout this awards season, Chan has maintained her penchant for high-low hems to show off her toned legs. At the Golden Globes, she chose a navy gown by Valentino that was cut short in the front and long in the back. For the 25th SAG Awards, the former model covered her lithe frame with a one-shouldered gown that exposed her knees before falling into a full skirt of ruffles in the back.

“Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon M. Chu also caught the fashion fever. He donned a traditional dark tuxedo that popped with a jade-colored lining printed all over with the name of the film.


“That is a fashion, yes,” said Nico Santos, who portrayed the film’s makeover master Oliver, of Chu’s sartorial choice. Unfortunately, the actor suffered his own wardrobe malfunction with his blue tuxedo jacket. “I had a big lunch,” he told People TV on the red carpet before the show. “I can’t button it.”
