Kim Kardashian, Kanye West's Versailles Pre-Wedding Bash: Pictures, Details!
The bride-to-be, 33, and rapper, 36, invited friends and family to a private tour of the iconic grounds on Friday, May 23. Guests were welcomed by men on horseback dressed to theme as they entered the prestigious location's gold gates.
As detailed by Vogue's Andre Leon Talley, guests did not know where they were headed following the couple's pre-wedding brunch at Valentino's home. "You couldn’t call it a rehearsal dinner—it called for black tie and starts at 7:00 p.m. Destination unknown to every guest, who gets his own personal security and chauffeur," Talley wrote of the extravagant event.
The wedding party was then taken inside the iconic Hall of Mirrors, where an orchestra dressed in 17th-century ensembles sat underneath the chandeliers.
Guest and friend Rachel Roy shared a picture of the scene, captioning the pic simply: "A dream #weddingwkend."
Lana Del Rey performed for the couple and their guests, stunning in a gold gown. The "Young and Beautiful" singer then opted to pose for photos with the bride and her family.
Giancarlo Giammetti, president of the Valentino Fashion House, shared a picture of Kylie, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and mom Kris with Kim and Del Ray.
Kim stunned in a white, plunging neckline gown, where she beamed throughout the night next to Kanye, who opted for a tan suit, showing off his chest as well.
The evening was filled with fashionable moments. Mom Kris took to her Instagram to share a snap of her shoes, along with designer Valentino's. The mom-ager also shared a snap with designer Alexander Wang.
The Sharon Sacks planned fete was so exquisite "Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will become legend," Talley, who is a guest of the couple this weekend, wrote.
The stunning event ended in "lavish fireworks near midnight." Kimye, as well as their family members, then retreated to the Four Seasons Hotel George V, an eyewitness tells Us Weekly, where Khloe "walked in with her shoes off."
Kylie and Jaden Smith were also spotted post Versailles heading back to George V. The 16-year-old was "dressed down" in "motorcycle boots and a leather jacket" and "was eating out of a medium tub of Haagen-Dazs ice cream."
Kourtney and beau Scott Disick opted to head for the hotel bar after the event, where Kourtney also ditched her heels.
Attendees are later set to jet off to Florence, Italy, for the couples nuptials. "Private planes are at the ready for some destination in Italy tomorrow," Talley concluded in his recap.
