Kim expressed that Vera Wang was the perfect choice for her: ‘I am so excited to reveal that Vera Wang is my wedding dress designer. Vera has been a close family friend for a long time and we had talked about this moment for years, so when it came to picking my wedding dress designer she was the first person I thought of. No one designs gowns the way she does! I know that Vera can make my dream come true and create the most perfect gown for my special day.’
“What a glorious moment! I am so thrilled to be dressing Kim for her wedding to Kris Humphries! Kim and I often spoke of creating a fantasy wedding gown,” the designer said. “I’m so excited! As a friend of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, I wish the engaged couple all the joy and happiness in the world!” – Vera Wang.

Celebuzz asked the burning question to Anna Barge, one of the bridal industry’s biggest names. The designer gave a predicted illustrated interpretation of how she believed the blushing bride will look.
‘I thought that, because she’s very dramatic, she shouldn’t lose that sense of self. I thought that it would be great to combine the traditional lace with something really considered a bridal look. I thought of combining the drama and shape of the mermaid dress for her with the one-shoulder look–combining that embellished shoulder and stepping up the lace a bit by using three-dimensional beading and embroidery on it.’
