Kim Kardashian Weds in Givenchy Couture

Nuptials for reality star and musician Kanye West are taking place in Florence, Italy.

PARIS — Kim Kardashian wore a Givenchy couture gown, veil and accessories to marry Kanye West at a ceremony today in Florence, Italy.

Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci also dressed West in a custom wedding tuxedo and their daughter North in a couture dress that matched her mother's, a Givenchy spokeswoman said.

The reality star's latest wedding, her third, has been a lavish European affair, kicking off in Paris, decamping to Versailles, and then Italy — with costume changes at every stop. The rehearsal dinner at Versailles on Friday night is said to have featured a live performance by Lana Del Rey and nine pounds of caviar from luxury fashion canteen Caviar Kaspia.

Among fashion designers invited to the nuptials were Tisci, Balmain's Olivier Rousteing, Lanvin's Alber Elbaz and Alexander Wang, who also designs Balenciaga in Paris, according to sources.

Dressing reality star Kardashian is the latest celebrity coup for Tisci, who has costumed the likes of Madonna, Beyonce and Rihanna in Givenchy for concert tours, and who counts West among his inner circle, having designed album art work for the musician.
