The Kim Formerly Known as Kardashian

His hand is bigger than her face!

It’s happening, ya’ll. Kim Kardashian is really, truly, madly, deeply, getting married to her seven foot sweetie, Kris Humphries. Now, I’m not an expert, but wouldn’t it be weird enough to marry a guy with the same name as your dad, but to marry a guy with the same name as your mom? That’s just a whole ‘nother level of strange. The wedding is set for the beginning of August–which, in wedding-speak, is right around the korner! Thought to be taking place at a private estate somewhere in Los Angeles, guests will include Kathie Lee Gifford (apparently a close friend of the family–of course she is, her name is Kathie!), who is blathering about it all over the place.

Kim has yet to pick a wedding dress, but is thought to be going with something classic and Old Hollywood-ish by Vera Wang (although why she would wear a leopard jumpsuit to meet Vera Wang is something only Kim Kardashian can explain). On her rosy toesies, Kim will wear custom designed, crystal-encrusted Christian Louboutin shoes (with the red sole, you know). Betcha the heels will be sky high to compensate for that nearly 2 foot height differential between her and Kris Humphries. I feel the need to spell his name out every time I write it, just in case someone mistakes a Kris Humphries reference for Kris Kardashian Jenner!

Don’t worry if your invitation gets lost in the mail or if you already have plans: the shindig will be filmed for a 2 hour (!) E! special to be shown sometime after it takes place. No word yet if Kim will continue Keeping Up With the Kardashians or if she’ll have her own Kim Humphries show (Kim & Kris, anyone?). The only Kardashians left will be Kourtney and Rob, so it’ll be more like Keeping Up With the Jenners (Who Want to Be Kardashians). Poor Bruce, he’ll never get any peace!.

And by the way–just in case you’re a hermit and live in a cave, Kim had her butt x-rayed to prove her bootyliciousness is for real:

Why I Didn’t Watch the Royal Wedding

The Royal Wedding was last night. Or this morning. Or yesterday afternoon. Something like that, it’s a time-flux equation I don’t understand. All I know is that it played live where I live at about 2 AM, which meant I sure wasn’t going to be tuning in. But let’s be honest, I wouldn’t have tuned in if it was the only thing on every channel in prime time. It seems to have captured the minds and hearts of half the globe, but I could not care less about these royal nuptials. And here are some reasons why I think that might be:

-It’s way too formal. I want a Royal Wedding that’s set up like Medieval Times, huge fat bearded men chomping down on turkey legs while cheering for Knights to hit each other off horses and do grand battle in the name of the blushing bride. Come on, that would be awesome.

-No Nicolas Cage.

-I’m still mad my limited edition Princess Diana Beanie Baby is now worth nothing.

-Prince William looks like he’d be friends with those creepy rowing twins from The Social Network.

-No dragons.

-All the royal women look like they raided Lady Gaga’s hat closet for the big day.

-Every time I see the Queen on TV and realize Helen Mirren isn’t the actual Queen of England I get disappointed.

-If I wanted to cry over a regal ceremony in a magical land where everyone has British accents I’d watch the end of Lord of the Rings.

-I bet they didn’t even play YMCA or Celebration at the reception.

-I have the Royal Engagement and Royal Bachelor Party DVR’d but haven’t watched them, so I didn’t want spoilers.

-It looked kinda boring. And it was like 12 hours long. You could watch every episode of the UK version of The Office in that time and enjoy something great the UK has given us.

-Speaking of The Office, all my tears were used up for Michael Scott’s final episode last night.

-If I was up at that hour I’m sure there was a marathon of Storage Wars on A&E that I would find infinitely more fascinating. That show is awesome.

-Seriously, no one sent Nic Cage an invite? He has to give the best wedding toast ever.

Twilight Fever! Bella’s Wedding Gown!

Confession: I’ve caught Twilight fever with a side of Robert Pattinson crush, just like the rest of y’all.  Ain’t no shame in loving a vampire!

This fever, coupled with my years-long Project Runway frenzy, has got me pretty excited about this.  InStyle asked some of their favorite designers to sketch Bella Swan’s wedding dress from Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the series.

The dress is described as having an early 1900’s design with a train and veil updated by Edward Cullen’s sister Alice, kinda Austen style.

Witness Project Runway winner Christian Siriano’s dazzling creation:

Though Siriano never fails to impress, common consensus across the Internets seems to be that designer Monique Lhuillier’s gown is the one most faithful to the authoress Stephenie Meyer’s description:

What do you think?  Has Lhuillier caught the fever?

Also sketching Bella’s gown are designers Erin Fetherston, Brian Reyes, Max Azria, Prabal Gurung, Lela Rose, Badgley Mischka, and Zac Posen.

Honestly, I’d wear any of these - with the exception of Brian Reyes’s look.  What the?  Is that a goat rising from the ashes?  Sheesh.  Maybe Kristen Stewart could pull it off.
