If you couldn’t tell by the recent Keeping Up With the Kardashian marathons and a media circus that nearly rivaled the April nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian got hitched in Santa Barbara, Calif., yesterday, and though official photos from the event are being kept mostly under wraps, some images have been released. (Us attempted to get first dibs with this photo, in which Kim and step-dad Bruce Jenner resemble two snowmen.)
In this gallery are images of the $20,000 cake and bridesmaids dressed in white — a move she totally stole from Middleton — and, of course, the dress! (See left!) Based on the details so conveniently leaked into the press, we knew the reality star/mogul/model/ubiquitous spokesperson would don a gown by family friend Vera Wang, who designed sister Khloe’s dress in 2009. But what would it look like?
As it turns out, the gown
we all some waited for with bated breath mild interest was just short of underwhelming — or, at least, the portion of the dress we can actually see was. From the little glimpse we do see, the strapless gown was a simple choice for the usually va-va-voom star, but if you’ve watched her on Keeping Up With the Kardashians — guilty as charged — then you know that among her sisters, Kim embraces the classic and romantic. But her fatal flaw? That awkward head piece. Sure, it probably costs more than I spent during four years at a private university, but that doesn’t make it okay. Is she channeling Nicole Richie? Was it actually a necklace that didn’t fit over her bun?
Sorry Kim, we prefer Khloe’s lavender-accented ensemble. (Until we get a better glimpse, at least.) What do you guys think?
