Ask anyone what they got up to two nights ago and they’re likely to say that they caught a movie. Which one? Crazy Rich Asians, of course. But apart from the screenings at Cineleisure and the like, the film’s Singapore premiere also took place on the same night at Capitol Theatre — with Female Collective‘s Aarika Lee in attendance who, took over our Instagram stories. In case you missed all the action on IG, here’s a round-up of the night’s happenings.

Location: Capitol Theatre, featuring a jade — not red — carpet.
