Kim Kardashian Takes Kanye West's Last Name After Whirlwind Wedding Weekend

May 28, 2014 11:30 AM


It's official! Kim Kardashian has changed her name from Kim Kardashian to Kim Kardashian West. The reality starlet updated her social media accounts a few days after her wedding, and even though this is her third marriage, it's is the first time she's taken her husband's last name. That's how you know it's gonna last! Well, at least for a few years, anyway...

After getting engaged in October of 2013, Kim told E! News that she was going to take Yeezy's name. "It'll be Kim Kardashian West," she said, "Not hyphened. Maybe make [Kardashian], like, the middle." Like, totally.

Kardashian and West got married on May 24 in Florence, Italy, and the lovebirds are currently on their honeymoon in Cork, Ireland at the Castylemartyr Resort. Based on the Instagram photos and tweets from the family, everything went as planned, but there was actually quite a bit of drama on Kim's big day!

First Kim's little younger brother Rob bailed on the wedding and flew back to Los Angeles on Saturday morning after the siblings got into a spat about his weight, and then Kim's $500,000 Givenchy dress reportedly ripped right before she walked down the aisle. In Touch Weekly claims that mom Kris Jenner "drank all day and went nuts," while Beyonce's failure to appear "[sent] Kim into a RAGE."

Ummm, why didn't they decide film this for the reality show? It would probably be the only episode we'd watch from start to finish!

BREAKING NEWS - Kim And Kanye Honeymoon In Ireland

May 25, 2014 05:11 PM


Who woulda guessed?!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are honeymooning in Cork, Ireland. It's not the Maldives or the Seychelles, but hey! These two have their own style ...

BREAKING NEWS - Kim Kardsahian And Kanye West Tie The Knot In Florence, Italy

May 24, 2014 11:00 AM


After a week of preps in Paris, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally tied the knot in Florence, Italy at the Forte di Belvedere.

Kim's family was there and friends included LaLa Anthony, Rachel Roy, Andre Leon Talley, Jaden Smith, Robin Antin, Jonathan Cheban, Tyga and Blac China, Brittny Gastineau and many more.



Overlooking the town of Florence, the fortress, set up in the hills surrounding the city, was a picture-perfect setting for the uber-chic nuptials. Guests flew in from Paris yesterday, via private jet, and are staying at the Westin Excelsior. Meanwhile, Kim's family are staying at the rented, private Villa San Michele, where the bride and her groom will room in the Limonaia Suite.

The Villa is a bit of a drive from the fortress, so wedding planners were reportedly nervous Kim and Kanye could be late for the own wedding. But sources tell X17online, the ceremony, so far, has gone off without a hitch.

That said -- one glitch in the event has gotten significant attention ... Beyonce and Jay Z's absence. It was speculated for weeks that the couple would skip the nuptials after reportedly telling Kim and Kanye they didn't want to be a part of the filming for the family's reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Well it's confirmed now -- Beyonce Instagram'd this shot of herself today, from the Hamptons, where the pair are, apparently, spending the Memorial Day weekend. It's also possible the couple wanted to steer clear of Kim's pal Rachel Roy, a guest at the wedding, with whom Beyonce's sister Solange reportedly fought at the Met Gala after-party just before getting into an elevator and beating up on Jay.


But the show must go on! Rick Wilkerson, Jr., a paster from North Miami, performed the ceremony, according to People Magazine. Andrea Bocelli sang as Kim walked down the aisle, escorted by her step-dad Bruce Jenner.

The backdrop was a massive wall of flowers, exactly like the one Kanye gifted Kim on Mother's Day.

Kim, 33, and Kanye, 36, draw applause and laughter from their wedding guests and various times during the nuptials. Various reports called West "nervous" during the ceremony and Kris Jenner was reportedly "emotional."

Kardashian and West have been dating since 2012, not long after Kim divorced basketballer Kris Humphries. It is her third marriage; West's first. West proposed to Kim in a surprise engagement party at San Francisco's AT&T Park in October.

Florence is a special place for the pair, as Kanye revealed to an Italian magazine recently, he believes that's where daughter North was conceived.

The Forte di Belvedere dates back to the 16th century; it recently reopened in 2013 after five years of renovations.


MUST SEE PHOTOS - Inside Kim And Kanye's Pre-Wedding Party At Versailles

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West did NOT pull a fast one tonight and tie the knot at Versailles, they just celebrated with friends and family at the most famous palace in the world!

Guests were invited to the Chateau de Versailles for a private concert by Kim's fave, Lana del Rey, who performed her hit song Summertime Sadness among other tunes.

Former Vogue editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley outlined the entire day in his diary submission for Vogue.com, writing about lunch at Valentino Garavani's Chateau de Wideville:

    "Kim and Kanye’s entourage, a processional of nine black cars, came down the grand parterre promptly at 1 p.m. lead by one of Valentino’s staff in a golf cart. Out stepped the bride-to-be in a long gray and oxidized Valentino bronze lace dress with the most beautiful gray suede stiletto court pumps, her hair in a ponytail and her beautiful daughter, North, in her arms dressed in anthracite gray and tights, no shoes. The groom escorted his bride-to-be—also in Valentino, made cool with a black leather shirt buttoned to the top, and black shiny oxfords. As the staff, about five men in black suits, stood with green umbrellas in the misty drizzle, the black fleet of cars continued to pour out Kardashian family and friends."

hallofmirrorskimyewedding.jpgWedding guest Rachel Roy Instagram'd this photo of the scene inside Versailles' Hall of Mirrors.

The fashion detail (which we love) goes on and on in Talley's piece, but we'll skip to the end of the day's first event, teasing the evening festivities:

    " As the helicopter whirred overhead, and Kanye’s personal film and photograph crew took pictures, the family and bridal party slowly piled into the cars to get dressed for a 6:00 p.m. departure from Paris to an unknown destination. When asked about certain details, Kanye said only “I don’t know what you are talking about?” like the cat that ate the canary (yet this cat had a solid pavé diamond and gold grill inlaid on his bottom molars). You couldn’t call it a rehearsal dinner—it called for black tie and starts at 7:00 p.m. Destination unknown to every guest, who gets his own personal security and chauffer. Off to the next big moment."

Of course that turned out to be the dinner, drinks and fireworks at Versailles for which, Talley says, Kim and Kanye will become "legend":

    "... it’s a moment of wonder every second. Each guest has his own personal chauffeur with an S500 Hybrid Mercedes-Benz. Private planes are at the ready for some destination in Italy tomorrow. And to top it all, Versailles with a V, and then some. Mr. West turned it into his home. He threw a great party, ending in lavish fireworks near midnight."

Off to Italy!!!

Kanye West and his soon-to-be mother-in-law Kris Jenner bonded over shopping Thursday in Paris, at Lanvin. They BFF's even color coordinated their outfits, opting for neutrals today, as opposed to the usually mandated black (an order from the top - it looks like Kris packed everyone's bags for the wedding trip).

The over-the-top matriarch wore a cream boucle jacket, a chain belt and destroyed white jeans (appropriate for a 25 year-old). Kanye slummed it in a grey sweatshirt and camel-colored boots.

Later, as the day got a little rainy, Kris donned a cream-colored trench to meet up with step-son Brandon and his wife Leah. Bruce's other, hotter son Brody stayed home to be with his girlfriend, after she was snubbed by Kimye and not invited to the wedding. Ouch!

Kim Kardashian Shows Major Side Boob In Peach Bodysuit

May 19, 2014 03:00 PM


Oh la la!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't seem to be stressing out over their upcoming wedding on May 24, as we caught them enjoying a leisurely lunch at L'Avenue before indulging in a shopping spree at posh stores like YSL and Celine in Paris today.

This is the second time in recent days that the curvaceous reality star has donned a revealing bodysuit as part of her ensemble, and this peach one really showed off some major side boob!

Our French photographer complimented the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star on her "lingerie", and although he simply chose the wrong phrase due to a language barrier, Yeezy still didn't take kindly to it and got pretty snippy!

Some call it a leotard, some call it a bathing suit… but we call it just plain ugly!

Kim Kardashian Enjoys Ice Cream With Fiance Kanye West Ahead Of Wedding

May 18, 2014 10:18 PM


Kim Kardashian is NOT worried about her wedding diet, apparently! Seriously, call in the corset! We can't believe Kanye allowed this, much less facilitated his girlie eating a high-fat treat so close to the big day!

Kim indulged in an ice cream Sunday in Paris just after arriving in the world's most romantic city to put the finishing touches on her wedding set for next weekend. Dressed in a white bodysuit with slutty cut-outs along the ribcage and gold, t-strap heels, Kim also donned her favorite high-waisted jeans. Speechless ...
