Constance Wu's iconic blue dress from Crazy Rich Asians will be displayed in the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
I cannot emphasize that enough! Let me say it again: The famous dress. From the first movie in decades with an all-Asian cast. Is going to be displayed in the most coveted history museum. In the United States.
Catch this groundbreaking costume next to Dorothy's ruby slippers. This is truly a major step forward for Asian representation in the media and is indicative of just how monumental this movie has been. It's nice that Asians are finally being put in the spotlight-- and not just as nerds or sidekicks.
