Kim & Kanye Wear Givenchy on Wedding Day
The newlyweds (and daughter North!) wore designer duds by friend Riccardo Tisci for their wedding
Kardashian, 33, wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci long-sleeve, sheer-paneled lace creation with a floor-length veil and accessories (also Givenchy) for her trip down the aisle, as did daughter North, 10 months, who donned a matching handmade dress. The dress had lace sleeves and side lace cutouts, and featured pearl embellishments along the neckline, as seen in the photo below (from party guest Joe Francis).
Meanwhile, groom Kanye West, 36, also chose custom Givenchy for his tux.
The power couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, following a pre-wedding bash at France’s elaborate Versailles palace.
Kardashian visited the French fashion house, along with Lanvin and Balmain, while shopping in Paris last week. And in November, she posted an Instagram of her designer friend cradling little North with the caption, “#NewStylist.”
Tisci, who is so close with the bride that she calls him “Ricky,” designed the memorable floral-print gown with attached gloves that a then-pregnant Kardashian wore to the Met Gala in 2013. And then there was this jaw-dropping number he whipped up for her during Paris Fashion Week in October.
And while the choice in designer was a switch from Kardashian’s previous nuptials to Kris Humphries, where she wore three different Vera Wang gowns, the bride couldn’t resist changing out of her Givenchy dress into another look during the reception. “Kim just changed dresses,” West announced to the crowd, eliciting massive cheers, while the song “This is How We Do It” played. “I just had to stop things for my girl, Kim. Changed dresses…uh oh!” he said.
