15 style steals from Crazy Rich Asians’ leading ladies

1 of 16

The cast of Crazy Rich Asians has a crazy enviable wardrobe. We’ve found 15 style steals from Crazy Rich Asians’ leading ladies that you can work ASAP.

Before we get to these superficial guts (but also very important, okay?), let’s take a moment to celebrate an important win: Crazy Rich Asians is the first film to feature an entirely Asian cast since Joy Luck Club, way back in freakin’ 1993. That’s before some of you were born! One of the actresses from the movie, Lisa Lu, plays the family matriarch in Crazy Rich Asians.

The film also took the top spot at the box office on its opening weekend, grossing $34 million in ticket sales in North America. Hopefully, this proves to those calling the shots that diversity and inclusivity aren’t just novelties. Rather, there are so many stories out there worth telling, not just what industry heads consider the “norm.”

While there is plenty of amazing fashion in Crazy Rich Asians, you may notice that it’s more expensive than flashy. All of the “old money” is used to simply dressing in high-end attire, and not taking risks. The “new money” is excited to be rich, and feels that they need to flaunt it. Director Jon M. Chu, and costume designer Mary Vogt didn’t want the clothing to overwhelm the actors and story. There are a few mentions of fashion designers, but you’ll notice while watching the movie that there is no excessive talk of labels or overt logos.

If you haven’t seen Crazy Rich Asians, you should plan on it. From the beautiful title screens, to sleek environments, to obviously the fashion, to the actors and story — you’ll ultimately laugh, cry, and come away totally rewarded. Most impressive of all are the talented, complicated, strong, and stylish women leading the charge.
