If, like me, you've already binged the entirety of Netflix'sBling Empire, you're probably still thinking about the OTT outfits and extravagant jewellery. Giving us a glimpse into a world where Gucci-filled claw machines are a normal part of 1st birthday parties and Dior personal shoppers make house calls, complete with racks of new-season clothing, Bling Empire offered the perfect dose of lavish escapism (which is precisely what I needed entering yet another week of lockdown).
Even after spending years working in the fashion industry, the concept of haute couture and fine jewellery still feels like another world, reserved for celebrities attending Cannes Film Festival or nominees at the Oscars. Though for this very particular set of wealthy Angelenos, bespoke buys practically come with the territory.
Whether attending a dinner party, spa day, or yoga class, the cast of Bling Empire was basically always dripping in designer wears, and this eccentricity (though often impractical) is part of the reason I couldn't stop watching. Heiress Anna Shay was rarely seen without her Dior slingback heels, while Christine Chiu made her love of diamonds abundantly clear. Jaime Xie, an influencer on the rise, donned some of the most memorable runway accessories from recent seasons (Givenchy pearl headband and Chanel earrings included), and Chèrie Chan toted an impressive rotation of Hermès bags.
Keen to understand exactly what went into the wardrobes of these fashion-loving reality TV stars? Keep scrolling below, as I've tracked down some of the exact designer items seen on the show.
