After much speculation (will it be short? will it be Vera?), Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress was finally revealed. Three days after her Florentine wedding to Kanye West, the bride, 33, shared gorgeous pictures of her wedding dress via Instagram, while West revealed the same images via Twitter.
The custom haute couture Givenchy gown by Riccardo Tisci featured long sleeves, a sheer lace back, and a long train. Kardashian also wore ivory satin four-inch heels created for her by Giuseppe Zanotti.
Kardashian’s wedding to West was decidedly more fashion-oriented than the Humphries nuptials. Though Vera Wang, who designed her dress in 2011, attended that wedding, the crowd at her wedding to West included Vogue contributor Andre Leon Talley, Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing, who created a dress for her pre-wedding festivities, famed Italian designer Valentino Garavani, who hosted a brunch for the couple at his estate, and Givenchy’s creative head Riccardo Tisci, who made Kardashian’s wedding dress.
The intricate design was a stark contrast to Kardashian’s classic gown from her second wedding to Kris Humphries. For her August 2011 wedding to the NBA star, held in Montecito, Calif., Kardashian family friend Vera Wang designed the ceremony dress for the bride. The strapless gown featured a fitted lace bodice and a tulle ball gown skirt. She wore a diamond headband with a long veil.
