Kim Kardashian knows how to make a fashion statement. Tradition would reserve the white dress for the wedding, but Kim does things a bit differently. The reality show star arrived at her bridal shower Saturday decked out in a form fitting white dress, string of pearls, and silver heels.
Kim was not alone in her choice of attire. Also snapped by media dressed in white as they arrived for the event were Kim’s mom Kris Jenner, and a visibly pregnant Ciara. Sister Kourtney took a different turn, arriving in head-to-toe black garb. Leah Felder, who is married to Kim’s stepbrother Brandon Jenner, wore a blue print dress.
The Daily Mail reports that the event was held at the Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills. The event was moved last minute from the Beverly Hills Hotel due to the recent controversial actions of the hotel’s owner, according to US Weekly. Cameras were inside to film the shower for Kim’s reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kardashian took to Twitter this week to deny reports that she and her beau had already tied the knot. She also denied this wedding — unlike her last ceremony with basketball player Kris Humphries — will be filmed for television:
2. We are not filming our wedding for Keeping Up With The Kardashians. You will see everything leading up til and after!

Kim’s wedding to rapper Kanye West is reportedly taking place in Paris on May 24. The couple’s invitation was leaked to media yesterday and includes the date and city of the ceremony and mentions a dinner the evening before. According to US Weekly, the guest list is short – approximately 100 people will witness Kim and Kanye tie the knot in the City of Light.
The bridal shower was appropriately Parisian-themed. Each plate was adorned with a white chocolate Eiffel Tower statute. Photos of the shower’s photo booth littered Kim’s Instagram, as the bride-to-be took selfies with her friends and family.
US Magazine offered the scoop on the menu for the event: brioche French toast and chicken gyros along with champagne and white cake were among the food offerings. The celebration was brief, under two hours according to People, but gave time enough for Kardashian to change outfits at least twice.
This is Kim’s third trip down the aisle and the first marriage for Kanye West. West and Kardashian have one child, daughter North, born last year.
