Four months after being robbed at gunpoint in Paris, reality TV show star Kim Kardashian is apparently filming a cameo for the upcoming female-led heist caper Ocean's Eight.

Kardashian, dressed in a white sheer ballgown and fur jacket, and her half sister Kendall Jenner, wearing white lace, were photographed in New York on Monday. The two had apparently finished shooting scenes at a fictitious Metropolitan Museum of Art gala for the movie.

A Hollywood source said the sisters were making cameos for the film, whose A-list stars include big names such as Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway.

Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour and fashion designer Zac Posen have also been spotted near the set of the movie, whose plot reportedly includes a jewel robbery at New York's annual Met Gala, a fundraiser often packed with celebrities.

In October 2016, Kardashian was tied up and robbed of some $10 million of jewelry in Paris while attending fashion week.

The robbery caused her to retreat from public life and social media for a time, but over the past couple of weeks, the star of reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians has traveled to Dubai, begun making appearances again and made a return to her extremely popular Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Ocean's Eight is a female-driven spinoff of the Ocean's Eleven crime caper trilogy that starred George Clooney and Brad Pitt.

Fans of Kardashian will have to wait awhile to see the cameo though. The film is expected to arrive in movie theaters on June 8, 2018.
