Fairytale Reality: Kim Kardashian's Wedding Dress

I love a good celebrity wedding. I love to imagine the ways in which I would change the centerpieces, updos, and bridesmaid dresses to fit my preferences. The best part of having an imagination on this grand a scale is that I can mentally spend the six-to-seven figure budget that a person of such high profile would figure. So, when I first found out about Kim Kardashian's engagement to Kris Humphries, the first thing that came to my mind was THE DRESS. If I were her stylist (I bow down to you, Monica Rose) or maid-of-honor, I would guide her in the direction of the following gowns based on the different sides of her personality that I have come to identify throughout my years of obsession with the style star.

Vera Wang

The Kardashians and Vera Wang are long time friends (the designer even custom made Khloe's wedding dress), so it is to be expected that she would be commissioned to design an exquisite gown for Kim. This one, with its asymmetrical neckline, fitted bodice, and exquisitely draped drop-waist hem would suit the high fashion fiend. Kim has been known to rock architectural and gravity-defying looks, so this one would suit her personal style well.

Vera Wang

Kim is nothing if not romantic. She loves the traditional ideals of love and romance, and what better way to express that than in this sweetheart neck A-line gown with handmade tulle lace skirt? Ugh, it screams sweet and sensitive in the best way possible. Check out that boned bodice and dusty lavender waist sash. Loves!

Ines di Santo

If I were to get married tomorrow, I would drive to Ms. di Santo's atelier and beg her for this wedding dress. Sweetheart neckline, one-shoulder, ruched bodice, and out of control, over the top couture feathered hem. Di-vine. How awesome would KK look in this dress? This would be my first choice for her b/c it screams sexy, sweet, and fashionista in one package. I can't stop looking at it. Monique Lhuillier Sunday Rose, meet your competition.


Ever the classic romantic, I expect Kim to at least entertain the thought of a soft and diaphanous dress. I am infatuated with the structured draped bust and fun and flirty ballgown skirt. Long diamond drop earrings would do the trick re: accessories. Classique!


I die over this dress. The architectural and asymmetrical detail of the bodice is almost poetic. The fluffs and folds of the peplum hem kill me (in a good way). I can totally see "high fashion Kim" rocking this minimalistic yet outrageous gown.


  1. i love the marchesa one! omg. so cute. =]


  2. Honestly, KK would probably looks amazing in any of these! haha Great choices for her :)


Merci beaucoup!
