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.”

I don’t begrudge Kim Kardashian a lovely wedding, but this is ridiculous and so insensitive considering the financial misery so many Americans are experiencing. As far as “American royalty” that’s a Kardashian fantasy. They aren’t even movie stars unless you call a sex tape a “movie”. The Kardashians would be viewed in a much better light if they weren’t so greedy and spent a little more time helping others rather than themselves. They obviously have the time since I still haven’t figured out what exactly they actually do.

jesus h christ why are people still talking about this?

that’s not ridiculous…
ordinary people sometimes use 3 gown for 1 wedding
it’s hollywood wedding, should be more than 3 gown…

The only person I “may” have any respect for would be Bruce, although when they do show him, he is usually “clueless” to what is going on around him. The fact that the family is so “way over the top” of any other human being is a total disgrace. I would have been 6 feet under if I EVER would have spoken to my parents, let alone anyone else the way these “KIDS” do. Again this family is a TOTAL DISGRACE to the rest of the people that have to work our buts off in order to survive in this economy. It was a total dsgrace how Kris’s family was not included in most of the wedding stuff, let alone his parents name ‘NOT ON INVITATION’ It’s sounds more like she was MARRYING HERSELF!!!!!
