The Los Angeles Bling Empire cast are back at it—and it looks like season two of the sleeper Netflix hit will feature haute couture vignettes direct from the City of Lights. Yes, it’s true, the sparkliest west coast Asian Americans on the small screen are in Paris this week, taking in runway shows during couture week. We spotted Christine Chiu on the steps outside the Schiaparelli show today—just before Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, and his new girlfriend Julia Fox pulled up to the gleaming golden gates.

Chiu wore a dramatic cape, crop-top, shorts ensemble that was photogenic from every angle:

Also in attendance at Schiaparelli was Grazia cover star Jaime Xie, who was dressed in a festive pre-Lunar New Year good luck color combination of red and gold.

Earlier in the week, Xie was spotted out and about in Paris wearing a little red dress from Alaia:

After her theatrical exit from Schiaparelli, Chiu was photographed later in the day at the Christian Dior Haute Couture show, dressed head-to-toe in Dior.

According to reports, other Bling Empire cast mates in town include Kevin Kreider—who is visiting Paris for the first time. Chiu says she’s showing him around the city—after a grueling day of taking in the runway collections, she and Kreider have dinner plans this week at Caviar Kaspia and Lapérouse.
