Kim Kardashian's Bridesmaids Dresses

People Magazine

So, ok. I predicted black for the Kardashian bridal party, but the color choice for the ceremony gowns ended being the COMPLETE OPPOSITE... ivory....just like Kim. Is Kim taking a note from the Royal Nuptials and following in Pippa's path? They all look amazing, and kudos to Kim for sharing the spotlight. Personally.. I still would have gone with black.

Now I am all for the's truly amazing. Watters 9614 has a similar line with an incredible back. Can you imagine these stunning sisters in these gowns?? In a classic, crisp black?? Just sayin'...

Photos of Kim Kardashian's Wedding Dresses

People Magazine
People Magazine has the full wedding photo album, and Kim and Kyle's big event will air on E! on Oct. 9th suitably called Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event. Once again, my job will require me to run out and purchase this magazine and set my DVR to record this segment.....for research. ;)

Courtesy of we can examine sketches of all three Vera Wang custom designed that this Hollywood Princess wore on her big day.

Her ceremony style was all out Fairy Tale...this ball gown strapless gave Kim the grand entrance that she was seeking. The basque waist on the Chantilly lace bodice matched the appliques on the train. She wore a Lorraine Schwartz headpiece paired with a cathedral length veil adorned with Chantilly lace at the hem. I do love the variation of headpieces, and the fact that she did not go "all out" princess with a typical tiara.
This look can be achieved with any headpiece that has an adjustable closer, such as "bejeweled" from Toni Federici.

Her first wardrobe change was a dramatically different shape. This is more of the silhouette that I had predicted for the buxom babe, and reportedly, this was her favorite. She was consistent in the use of a Chantilly bodice, but went with a much sexier Georgette mermaid skirt. The bottom of the skirt consisted of mixture of hand cut organza petals, embroidery and Chantilly lace.

Wanna take this look up a notch, and get away with one show stopper for the evening?? Here it is...Lazaro 3150.

Lastly, there was the "party time" dress. This modern and simple gown is a bias cut crepe-satin gown with a v-neckline and circle skirt.

I love the old Hollywood feel of this gown. WTOO's "Serafina" has that same style with a dramatic sweetheart bodice and black sash.

Kim Kardashian's Upcoming Wedding Details

This event been given almost the same amount of buzz that the Royals received....cooky. I have never watched a full episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, but I admit that I fully plan to record this nuptial shindig on Saturday. Only for the fashion, of coarse. :)

Speaking of, Madam Tussaud released their own version of what they envision this reality princess sporting down the aisle. If her dress resembles this style in the slightest...I stand corrected. My prediction could not be any more different. We shall see.

Eonline, Jason Laveris/Film Magic

As long as we are all betting on the fashion choices, let's not forget the other ladies' frocks. Now, although it is August and temps are sky rocketing here, the weather is much more pleasant in Montecito. (The alleged location for the wedding.) The sisters could very well wear long dresses and be perfectly comfortable, however, I am predicting short gowns for these mavens. If I might also be so brazen...I am betting on black or charcoal as the color choice. I very well might be totally off base, knowing that these ladies are not afraid of bold colors, but I stick to my convictions., PR Photos

I am also thinking that Kim might give all the sisters their choice of silhouette, but stick to one fabric and shade. Every beauty in this family is built extremely differently, (much like any other bridal party), and this would be a great way to tie everything together, as well as be true to each individual's style and comfort level. I know that Vera Wang is customizing a gown for each member, however, I chose some styles from Amsale's 2012 bridesmaids line that might resemble the famous party's pieces. The more structured one shoulder look, and the abstract bow are huge for the upcoming season. The classic sweetheart neckline with a tiny pleated detail and lush fabric would be an appropriate choice for the younger sisters.

All in good fun.

Buyer's Trend Alert!!

The 80's trends have resurfaced....let me rephrase that....the BEST of the 80's trends are resurfacing themselves in new ways. A little less terrifying???...... Agreed.

Does anybody remember Madonna's "Like a Virgin," bridal gown?? I sure do. Loved it then, love it now....

Let's deconstruct this iconic number, and see how the look has been brought back...Exposed boning bodices- check! Raw edge hemline- check, check!! Sure we left the "boy toy" belt out, and for good reason, but there is a reincarnated key accessory that I am LOVING, and hoping to see more of: lace gloves.

Here is how they have been recreated for brides of today....they are shorter, sweeter, and much more delicate, but by no means is this a trend for a shrinking violet. The look is royal, regal AND super fashionable. It is an accessory for a confident bride, that isn't afraid to start a trend or two.

My favorite updated version, is Toni Federici's "Tara."

Here are a collection of pictures from featuring some fantastic ways to sport this adorable trend!

New Lazaro Bridesmaids Dresses

Helloooo silk mikado!!! Lazaro released several new bridesmaids dresses in an uber-fabulous mikado fabric. The colors are vibrant, shapes are tailored and designs are so adorable, I might order a couple for myself. :)

This dress is a beauty all the way around. This is a classic shape with a sweet floral detail at the natural waist that will make your bridal party swoon.

This tall drink of water is one of the best floor length designs to hit the floor this season. The exposed boning at the bodice is such a fashion forward detail, and the slim skirt adds an understated formality that creates a balance between trendy and classic.


This sassy little number if a fashion maven's dream. The tailored bow is totally on trend for the season and the shorter hemline is perfect for an Austin outdoor wedding.


You want off the shoulder? You got it! A highly requested neckline has been created with this immaculate and streamlined dress.

Kim Kardashian's Wedding Gown

I have to say that I am not surprised that Kim Kardashian's upcoming wedding is creating a super buzz; with all the details being released from pictures of the cake tastings to the invitations....can you imagine what headlines her gown will make?!?

So now it's prediction time....

We all know that it is more than just her pretty face that has made this beauty famous, so I am pretty sure that she is not going to down play her largest asset on her big day. Her sister, Khloe, wore a stunning Vera Wang gown, and incorporated a colored sash to bring in the shade of lavender to tie in the wedding party.

Rumor has it that Vera is a family friend, so more than likely Kim will follow suit, and wear Vera as well. If I had my say, I would style this vixen in Marisa, style 918, from their Fall 2011 line. At market, this gown was lovingly referred to as the "booty dress." What could be more fitting??

This slim gown is created with gathered alencon lace, then dramatically flares into an organza layered skirt just above the knee. The natural elasticity of the lace allows movement while it hugs every curve. Kim would be stunning in this number....absolutely stunning. Marisa is very hush-hush about their dresses, which adds to the secretive, celebrity appeal.

I think that Kim would look beautiful with a matching chapel length alencon mantilla veil, like style "Lacey" from Toni Federici. Keeping in mind the black and tan accents used on her wedding invitation, I think that Kim should borrow a trend from her little sister and add a waist cinching, black sash for the reception. Our own "James" design would be a fantastic regal touch for this celebrity princess. Don't you agree?? ;)
