While average families are buckling down and watching every last dollar, some people continue to live in a world blissfully detached from grim economic reality. Among the members of this elevated class are politicians, celebrities — and the Kardashian clan. But even if we can’t all be celebrities (or even Kardashians), we can at least gawk at Kim’s wedding extravaganza last week. So let’s.
I don’t know about you, readers, but on the wedding invitations I receive, recommended attire is listed simply as either “Black tie” or “Black tie optional.” There are no specific instructions beyond that. So you can imagine my surprise when I heard that all guests at the Kim Kardashian / Kris Humphries nuptials were required to purchase either a white or a black outfit for the ceremony.
But let’s leave that aside for the moment and move on to the not one, not two, but three ivory gowns Ms. Kardashian felt were necessary to complete her wedding experience. Now, I won’t begrudge a bride a costume change (or two — don’t they occur at every wedding? I could be wrong). But I am also fairly sure that all three of Kim’s gowns were made by somebody named Vera Wang. So too were the bridesmaids’ dresses worn by Kim’s infamous sisters.
