Kim Kardashian's Three Wedding Gowns: All the Details!

When Kim Kardashian chose family friend Vera Wang to create her custom couture wedding gowns, she knew things would be picture perfect. What she didn’t know, however, was which of the three intricate gowns she would choose to wear for her walk down the aisle.

“I truly, up until two days before [the wedding] could not decide which to wear,” the bride admits to PEOPLE. After seeking advice from friends, family — and of course Wang herself — the choice was clear: Kardashian made her grand entrance in what she calls the “princess look” gown, a ball gown with full tulle skirt, basque waist and hand-pieced Chantilly lace appliqué on bodice and train. Along with her Lorraine Schwartz headpiece, she wore a cathedral-length veil with hand-pieced Chantilly lace appliqué at the hem and a lightly shirred blusher layer.

“It was Cinderella,” Wang tells PEOPLE of the overall look. “But Cinderella with a very sexy body. She has a very Liz Taylor or Sophia Loren kind of body and we didn’t want to lose that.”

For the first dance, Kardashian went with something completely different — the gown that ended up being “my favorite,” she says — a sexier, Georgette mermaid dress with hand-pieced Chantilly lace appliqué on bodice. The skirt had hand-cut organza petals intermixed with Chantilly lace motifs and organza sprig embroidery.

And lastly, when it was time to party, Kardashian made her third and final change of the evening into a bias-cut crepe-back satin gown with v-neck and circle skirt. She accessorized all three looks with custom Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Wang summed up the experience perfectly: “It was a wonderful process. The fact that she came to me for having a certain classicism mixed with modernity, I feel very honored.”

Why would anyone in their right mind want to wear 3 dresses at your own wedding??? Its one thing to have more money than God, but you would be spending most of the day getting in and out of 3 different dresses!!!!!!!!!! How retarded is that!!!

Who stinking cares about celebrity clothes. My gosh – I am so sick of celebrities and their unmeaningful life. If they lived in the real world, they would never have their own show. BLAH BLAH BLAH…garbage! Get a life people so you do not have to live watching someone else’s pitiful life. I did not read the article, I am only trolling to remind everyone else to get a life of their own!

I am sorry to see that some people are so unhappy right now that they cant be happy for someone else. misery loves company. I watch the kardashians reality show.I see young people growing and blossoming into productive and sucessful citizens in america. They are not perfect and neither are any of you. If the cameras were turned on you what would we find. Everybody makes mistakes as we go on our journey in life.Kim is not responsible for world problems. thats what we elect our government officials for and look at how they act. This is a young family that is not in any trouble, they are being reared by loving parents. most of us wish we hadthe sucess that Kris,bruce,and the lateMr. Kardashian has had with rearing children. I thind they are a loving family that goes through ups and downs like normal human beings.the parents have done a wonderful job but the job is never done,They are young and they will searn like everybody else. If you people want change in the world start with your elected officials. leve the kardashians alone. I bet none of you have donated money because youre too busy hating to do something loving. Kim and Kris I wish you the best. I dont have a tenth of the money you have but I am happy for you two. I love your show and the love you all show to each other. You have your ups and downs but you all always straighten it out.Kloe you are the best.your family inspires me. youre not doing any more than the britteny spears or miley cirruses of the world. But still they rise. Keep love alive. Bruce you are the rock that all young families need. Linda
