The bride wore Givenchy! Kim Kardashian said “I do” to her hubby Kanye West in Florence, Italy today wearing a haute couture gown by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci.
According to reports, the stunning bride wasn’t the only one to rock the Italian fashion designer for the wedding of the year. The 36-year-old groom also wore a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci tux and their 11-month-old daughter North wore a Givenchy dress.
Tisci, a close friend of the bride and groom, was the man behind Kim’s controversial floral gown at the Met Gala in May 2013.
While Beyonce and hubby Jay declined their wedding invitation (The power couple went for a more casual weekend in the Hamptons instead), Mrs. Carter took to Instagram to congratulate the newlyweds on their new life together. “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love,” she wrote. “God bless your beautiful family.”
Guests who did attend the star-studded nuptials included Rachel Roy, LaLa Anthony, Common, Jaden Smith, Fonzworth Bentley, NeNe Leakes, Serena Williams, Big Sean, Tyga, Steve McQueen, Valentino, Alexander Wang and Andre Leon Tally to name a few. According to reports, each guest was required to give their cell phones to security prior to the I-dos.
During the ceremony, Kim’s step father Bruce Jenner walked her down the aisle, and the bridal party consisted soley of sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kris, Kylie, Kendall.
According to TMZ, brother Rob Kardashian left Florence before his sister became Mrs. West. Some major family drama allegedly went down, and as a result, he booked a flight back to L.A. “It’s unclear what caused the Kardashian family beef — but it had to be bad — considering he missed out on not only his sisters wedding … but one of the biggest celebrity events of the year,” the site reports.
Of course, the lavish wedding was nothing less than spectacular. Stunning white roses made up the floral arrangements, artwork was provided by Vanessa Beecroft Art Installation, catering was provided by Galateo Ricevimenti (they ate of traditional Tuscan cuisine) and their seven-tier cake was crafted by Galeto.
At the reception, John Legend performed “At Last,” their first dance song. Other tunes on the playlist included “These Arms of Mine” and “A Little Tenderness” by Otis Redding, “Otis” by Kanye and Jay Z and “Rock With You” Michael Jackson.
Congrats to the happy couple!
