Behold, The Real Crazy Rich Asians That Are Killing It With Their Fashion Games
As we are all aware, Kevin Kwan’s Crazy Rich Asians is one of the most successful movies of 2018. It is such a hit, that it even transformed our very own Henry Golding into a major Hollywood star.
Watching it made you feel “woaaah, I want to be that crazy rich too!”, as you wonder whether these kind of people exists. The reality is, they do, they’re CRAZY RICH and very fashionable too.

“All of a sudden she was a butterfly, she was a sea anemone, she was a peony in full bloom, she was like nothing on earth. She was pure joy.” – @kevinkwanbooks couldn’t have described the transformative experience of wearing couture any better, and what a privilege to be written about so beautifully by an author and a friend that I adore so much. Thank you Kevin and @harpersbazaarus 💚💚💚 (link in bio for full article) Production: @kathryn___rice Creative Direction: @carrielauren Photographer: @matthieusalvaing Fashion Editor: @cassieanderson212 #harpersbazaar #septemberissue #giambattistavalli #couture #giambattistavallicouture
Just check out her Instagram and you’ll see endless photos of her donned in beautiful, luxurious outfits. This Hong Kong-based It girl is known to constantly photograph herself wearing expensive gowns in exotic locations. She even managed to splurge on two custom Giambattista Valli dresses. Feiping Chang is also the founder of the website xoxoFei.com, a blog for her to document her world travels, stylish outfit of the day and fine cuisines. She’s also married to financier Lincoln Li back in 2017, in which the local media called it “Wedding of the Year”.
2. Kim Lim, Singapore
Kim Lim is the daughter of self-made ‘remisier king of Singapore’, Peter Lim, who also owns Spanish La Liga Club Valencia. Kim grew up in the household of one of Singapore’s wealthiest men, in which Forbes estimated a net worth about $2.1 billion (RM8.78 b). She’s a rich girl alright, but she’s also extremely humble. In an interview with a Singaporean media, she revealed, ““My dad always tells me, anything can happen to anyone at any time. Maybe next year we will become nobodies so [you have to] always be humble”. This heiress also loves giving back to charity, where she volunteers regularly at Apex Day rehabilitation Centre for the elderly. What a sweetheart!

Malaysian Chinese twins, Michelle and Rachel Yeoh were basically born into the fashion industry as they’ve been attending couture shows with their mother since they were children. Before you make any assumptions, no — they are not related to Michelle Yeoh. In fact, the stunning Yeoh sisters are the heiresses to Malaysia’s largest conglomerate, YTL Corporation. They’re pretty active in the British Fashion Council and have modeled for Dolce & Gabbana numerous times. Not only that, in 2015, these twin sisters became the first Malaysians to participate in the Queen Charlotte debutante ball, which is a pretty huge deal since they are non-royals.
4. Chryseis Tan, Malaysia
This local heiress’ father, Malaysian tycoon Vincent Tan Chee Yioun, is rumored to be worth $1 billion (RM4.17 b), so it’s a no wonder that she has such an #instafabulous life! From owning the hottest designer handbags to luxurious clothing and expensive accessories, she isn’t just your typical crazy rich Asian. Apparently, one of her roles at her father’s Berjaya Corporation (one of Malaysia’s largest companies), is Chief Executive of Berjaya Times Square. She also manages some of the group’s overseas business, including the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences in Kyoto and soon to be opened, the Four Seasons Hotel in Okinawa. She recently got married to Faliq Nasimuddin, the son of the late founder of Malaysian conglomerate Naza Group.
5. Heart Evangelista, Philippines
Also known as Love Marie Payawal Ongpauco-Escudero, this stunning lady is a Filipino actress who started painting on her Birkin bags after she accidentally stained one with French fry grease while eating at Chili’s. Shoots, you know you’re crazy rich when you’re able to “paint” a bag that costs between $11,900 to $300,000 (RM49,740 to RM1,253,970). If you’re not following this beautiful human being on Instagram, you might just want to click follow because Evangelista loves sharing her latest designs as well as her extravagant gowns, beauty routine as well as breathtaking vacation shoots with her 2.4 million followers on Instagram. Kevin Kwan even dubbed Evangelista as the modern day incarnation of Audrey Hepburn for always being pleasant, classy and extremely gorgeous.
6. Yen Kuok
She is the daughter of Malaysian mogul, Robert Kuok, who is the wealthiest man in the country with Forbes estimating his net worth to be $14.8 (RM61.86) billion. A lover for fashion, she posts all her world travels and is filled will photos of extravagant shoes, accessories and clothing. She also revealed in an interview with Hong Kong media, that she wasn’t handed everything on a silver plate, hence she made a name for herself and founded Guiltless, which is an online consignment store offering pre-loved and off-season luxury item.
7. Nadia Nasimuddin
Nadia Nasimuddin is the daughter of the late, Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin SM Amin, founder of Naza Group of Malaysia.
