Since their epic wedding, many media sources have referred to Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries as “Hollywood Royalty,” which got us thinking: What exactly does Hollywood Royalty mean today? Certainly not as much as it used to.
I’ll explain: Our grandparents got Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, our parents got Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw and we get…The Kardashians? Somehow, it just doesn’t seem fair.
It’s not that the relationships of yore were so much more wholesome (half of them started when one or both parties were married to other people) but it’s that they seemed to have that X factor–a heady mix of glamour, mystery and money. The Kardashians certainly have one of those, but really, do they make the cut as “Hollywood Royalty”? And if they do, what does that say about our generation?

With their ubiquitous last names and increasingly public lives, the Kardashians may be one of the closest things we have to royalty in the states. I know, it’s a sad truth.
The comparison has been especially relevant lately since Kim’s extravagant nuptials to NBA player Kris Humphries last weekend, which was basically our royal wedding. Of course, in this scenario, Kris is the one who married into royalty, which is why his friends have apparently started calling him Kate Middleton, Page Six reports.
Cute nickname, Kris! It’s a legitimate comparison, though. Like Middleton, Kris will be spending a lot more time in the public eye and will need to step up his look. As of now, his status as a style icon is uncertain. Hopefully he can handle the pressure.

Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries exchanged vows and Lorraine Schwartz wedding bands in front of 450 guests in a reportedly $10 million ceremony on a private estate in Montecito, CA Saturday. (Of course, Kardashian Ink., made $18 million off the wedding, the New York Post is reporting, so they still came out with a profit).
We may not know exactly how those vows sounded and looked until E!‘s two-part special, set to air October 9 and 10. But, we already have an idea of of what Kim and her family wore. Kim, who we’ve known for a while would wear Vera Wang, chose a strapless ball gown with full tulle skirt and basque waist with hand-pieced Chantilly lace applique on the bodice and train. Pretty! Bridesmaids Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie also wore long strapless white gowns, as did the mother of the bride–though hers had a gigantic white bow on the front.
The groom wore an Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo with a white jacket and tie. Mason Disick also wore white and was easily one of the wedding’s best dressed, if you ask us. Official wedding photos will be in the September 5 issue of People, which hits newsstands Friday. For now click through for all the video and photos all courtesy of E!.
