It’s official: Kanye & Kim‘s wedding took place today in Florence, Italy, reports E!. The ceremony was held at Forte di Belvedere, a 16th-century-era fortress atop a hill near the Arno river.
Kim’s sisters made up her side of the bridal party with Bruce Jenner walking her down the aisle. Other tidbits include:
Katy Perry is either performing, or her music will be played after dinner. Lana Del Rey is expected to perform “Young & Beautiful” (the song playing when Kanye proposed) again this evening, after serenading the wedding party at last night’s rehearsal dinner.
There’s a 60 meter long marble table that the 200 guests will dine at. (Baller.)
All guests will be equipped with an electronic bracelet, so that no outsiders can enter the party (that means you, Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson).
The couple has already sold the exclusive rights to all images to an undisclosed source.
Each guest’s cell phone will be taken upon entry to avoid any photos leaking.
An undisclosed guest has reported that they are unaware of any plans until two hours before, where they have received texts with instructions on where to go.
Scottie Pippen and wife Larsa (good friend of Kim’s) are in attendance, along with Carmelo Anthony’s wife La La, so hopefully there will be some recruiting at KimYe’s wedding as well *fingers crossed*
Other celebrity guests include: John Legend & Chrissy Teigen, Big Sean, Tyga & Blac Chyna, and Jaden Smith (amongst more, I’m sure).
So says Kanye West, in a translation from Florence’s La Nazione newspaper in their exclusive interview today. However, it’s not exactly the confirmation. The interwebs are already running away with it as the album title, but ‘Ye could simply be saying he just made the whole album in Florence. Ha! Time will tell…
In questi giorni ha lavorato a un nuovo album? «Sì, qui nel silenzio della campagna, quando finisco di guardare tessuti, ricami e vestiti che per me sono come sculture, mi ritiro perché sto componendo un album tutto Made in Florence».
The new fact from this interview, though: Kanye confirms that he and Kim Kardashian‘s wedding is May 24th in Florence, believed to be specifically at Forte di Belvedere.
I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces. It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world—for me the most beautiful in Europe.
Florence — a superb choice for a wedding and likely a superb inspiration for music… no matter the album title.
Kim Kardashian. LaLa Vasquez-Anthony. Kris Jenner. Just a few of the names that showed up this past Saturday for Future & Ciara’s baby shower, hosted at a fabulous mansion in Beverly Hills by LaLa herself. The secluded gathering, featuring the couples’ closest friends and family, was one to be remembered, especially for Ciara.
The couple surely looks happy.. And it’s been revealed that they will be having a baby boy! Below are some more pictures from the festivities.
Kanye West & Kim Kardashian pose for Vogue, featuring the absolutely beautiful baby North West. To be featured on their April cover, Vogue released pictures today of the stunning photoshoot.. and the pictures are to die for!
In the interview, Kim revealed how she likes to dress up Baby North in big boy/girl clothes including Jordans, Yeezy’s gold chains, & Kim K’s designer bags much to Baby North’s pleasure. They also shared many other details about their home/family life in the interview.
Kanye’s side of the family calls her Nori.
I put Kanye’s big chains around her, and I put a little Louis bag and some Jordans, and I was like, ‘What up, Daddy?’
This edition of “Vogue” will be released March 31.
In a couple of bonus KimYe tidbits, Kanye West’s wedding present to Kim is, as you’d expect, quite unconventional. ‘Ye is buying Kim 10 Burger Kings. Wait, what? Well, a source told the Daily Star (albeit a questionable one), that “Kanye wants to buy her 10 restaurants across the UK, Italy and France, making her a real international businesswoman.” Oh, gotcha. Well, we’ll see if this proves to be true, just thought I’d pass that along.
Also thought I’d pass along something from Kim Kardashian herself as she humblebrags about something as normal as spring cleaning. Hey, I’m happy she did, because she photographed a nice encapsulation of Yeezy shoe designs over the years…
In Kanye‘s interview run last fall, one recurring topic was the unfairness he felt Kim K received that she hasn’t gotten a cover of Vogue (and Vogue, specifically). Well, Vogue must have been listening because today Kim K gets her cover… with Kanye West and the hashtag #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple.
Plus, Vogue releases this behind the scenes video featuring a cameo from North West (a cutey) and appropriately set to “Bound 2”.
Thoughts on the KimYe cover? I like the classy wedding attire and pose, myself.
Official video above of Kanye‘s grand proposal to Kim last year, as aired on last night’s Keeping Up with The Kardashians. Fellas, even if you’re the biggest Kanye fan, you should have been watching the 4th quarter of the All-Star Game instead of this. And now you can watch it above.
Also, looks like Kim has all sizes of the Red Octobers… including one for North.
