French police are continuing to hunt for five people suspected of assaulting Kim Kardashian West in a private Paris residence before robbing her of more than $US10 million worth of jewellery.

Paris police are analysing footage from surveillance cameras to try to identify the assailants, who wore fake police emblems on their jackets.

After forcing their way into the American celebrity's apartment in the chic eighth district, the robbers held her up at gunpoint and locked her in a bathroom before escaping on bicycles in the early hours of Monday.

They stole a jewellery box containing items worth $US6.7 million ($A8.8 million) as well as a ring worth $US4.5 million.

Kardashian West, who was in the French capital to attend fashion week shows, returned to the US on Monday

Paris prosecutors have declined to say whether the robbers received help from the reality TV star's entourage. Kardashian's stylist was also in the residence at the time, and alerted police, but Kardashian's bodyguard was not present, according to the prosecutor's office.

The reality star's two children, 3-year-old North and 10-month-old Saint, were in New York with their father, Kanye West, when the robbery happened.
