In addition to being up-to-date on all the latest Hollywood happenings after watching E! News last night, we're still pinching ourselves about the fact that Kim Kardashian "wore" our stunning Gilded Gold gown that recently debuted at the Nardos Imam fashion show in Dallas!
"We're playing dress-up and putting the bride in silhouettes we'd like to see when she walks down the aisle," an E! correspondent said to introduce the segment. "Kim would look like a true princess in a full ballgown. This 'Gilded Gold' one by Nardos Imam is totally gorge. It's also the perfect way to give a nod to her culture—the lace overlay is tradition in Armenian weddings, and if Kim and Kanye are saying 'I do' in a French chateau, this grand gown will do the trick."
We could not agree more. "No one has done a gold gown before. The color is perfect for Kim's complexion and would stand out beautifully," Nardos said. "If Kim wore this timeless silhouette on her wedding day, her gown would become as iconic as Grace Kelly's."
Just so you know, Kim, we're all about one-of-a-kind, completely couture creations here at Nardos Imam. Which is why Nardos developed a few extra options we'd love for you to consider when selecting your final aisle style.
OPTION ONE: 1920's Inspired Fitted Gown
"Kim is known for showing off her figure and her curves, which this dress would draw attention to," Nardos said. "The entire gown would be hand-beaded with crystals, and lace would show through underneath. The veil is inspired by the gown and would frame Kim beautifully—it would also be edged with crystal detailing."
Featuring plenty of sparkle, a touch of gold and a gorgeous low neckline, we know this would be a knockout look on Kim—or a knockout first look, at least. Because post-ceremony, we imagine that Kim might like to slip into...
OPTION TWO: Elegant Ruched Fit-and-Flare
With beaded cap sleeps, crystal detailing at the waist, ruching across the hips and an elegant train, Kim's second look would make for a dramatic reception change. "This gown combines everything Kim loves. It's fashion, sexy, modern and classic all at the same time," Nardos said. "Beautiful ruched fabric will hug Kim's curves in all the right places, while hand-beaded crystal detailing will accent her tiny waist."
Sounds like a perfect fit! Unless, of course, Kim's looking to combine the best of both world's by wearing...
OPTION THREE: Two-Way Stunner
"Like the others, this look is timeless," Nardos said. "It's special because of the detachable train, which allows the gown to be worn two ways—as a figure-flattering mermaid gown and as a full ballgown."
No matter what style of gown she wears, we know the “Kimye” wedding will be an affair to remember. Which style would you choose for Kim Kardashian’s upcoming nuptials?
