If you’ve watched Bling Empire (honestly, who hasn’t?), you would be hard pressed to miss resident fashion plate Jaime Xie. The front row regular practically stole the limelight with her outfits in every scene—a difficult feat considering she was going up against Kane Lim, Christine Chiu and Anna Shay—and also for her blithe, witty pronouncements.
The Bling Empire star has not been idle since the show aired, and she recently sashayed onto the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival 2021. Arriving by water taxi (possibly the best way to arrive at any venue), Xie caught our eye from day one with her lusciously embroidered Balmain minidress.
Of course, the film festival being one of the most fashionable events of the year, the style star had to bring her A-game, and enlisted the help of top celebrity stylist Law Roach for some red carpet strategising. This culminated in a show-stopping vintage Roberto Cavalli spring/summer 2005 look, paired with Bulgari jewellery that held its own against the likes of Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet and Adriana Lima at the Dune premiere on September 3.
Here, Xie shares her photo diary from her whirlwind trip to Venice exclusively with Tatler Asia.
