Kim Kardashian's wedding extravaganza: "For the fans"
Kim Kardashian’s Fairytale Wedding special on E! gives fans an inside look at her extravagant and over-the-top wedding to Kris Humphries. The reality star opened up to InStyle Australia as to why she decided to film this personal event in her life.
Kim Kardashian is used to having her life be an open book to fans in her reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians – and so when it was time to plan her wedding to Kris Humphries, she decided she would share this special moment with her fans.
"We took weeks to decide if we were going to film [the wedding] or not, but I felt like my fans—everyone that has gone on this journey with me, seeing different relationships that I've been in—would feel cheated if I didn't film it," she tells the November issue of InStyle Australia. "It was something that Kris and I were okay with, and the beauty of it is we get to edit it. It [will be] great to look back at that and see this time in our lives."
The wedding, which reportedly cost $20 million, was in August and featured a star-studded invite list including Eva Longoria, Lindsay Lohan and Avril Lavigne. Guests at the wedding were asked to only wear black and white – and Kim looked stunning in her three (yes, three!) Vera Wang wedding gowns that she would wear throughout the ceremony and reception.
Kim tells the magazine the moment when she knew that Kris was "the one."
"There was just this calm feeling; I trusted him a hundred per cent. And I think that is really rare. I have a lot of fun with him. It's a feeling that's different to what I had felt before," she says.
Should we expect her to change her name to Kris Humphries? Don't count on it! "You can call me whatever you like. [But that] feels good. I'm not really used to it yet."
In the meantime, don't expect Mrs. Humphries to stay at home playing the housewife.
"I am a workaholic; I love to be busy all the time. I love hearing what the people out there—fans, everyone—are into, and finding a way to give them whatever they're looking for, whether it's fashion or my perfumes. I take everything I love, figure out a way to make something unique, and put it out there."
Kim's Fairytale Wedding Part 2 airs tonight on E! at 9/8c.
