From the risqué mint green dress DJ Kim Lee debuted in the season premiere to model Jaime Xie’s printed Ottolinger x Jean Paul Gaultier co-ords, the Bling Empire cast returned for another season bigger and more well-dressed than before.
While Lee and Xie are well-known for their fashion prowess, other members’ styles are equally flamboyant. In this season of the binge-worthy reality series, expect shopping sprees and matching outfits at Valentino with new BFFs Xie and reclusive heiress Anna Shay, Versace looks courtesy of Singaporean realtor Kane Lim and high-octane couture from philanthropist Christine Chiu. And though entrepreneur and actress Chèrie Chan left the main cast in season two, her indulgent style has not dulled, frequently sporting pieces from Dior and Chanel in her Instagram posts.
Joining the crew this season: philanthropist Mimi Morris and Rich Kids of Beverly Hills star Dorothy Wang, who serve up fabulous looks in their own right. Morris made a splashy debut on the show in a yellow tulle gown for her wedding anniversary, while Wang favours figure-hugging dresses and eye-catching bags, including a beaded Fendi Baguette she toted to a high-tension meal with Xie and Lim.
Here, Vogue Singapore rounds up the most extravagant looks from the cast of Bling Empire season 2, outside of the show.
