The wedding weekend of the millennium and surely several centuries after that officially kicked off Thursday evening with Kim Kardashian's highly Instagrammed bachelorette party in Paris. As is often the trend in pre-nuptial garb, the third-time bride-to-be wore white for the occasion. But -- this being Kim Kardashian, she wasn't about to wear just any old ivory frock.
Instead, she dove into the archives of Balmain -- choosing an ultra-fitted, super intricate, heavily embellished minidress from the French house's Fabergé egg-inspired fall 2012 collection. Hollywood Life reports the dress cost a hefty $20K (we're still waiting to confirm that figure) -- but we're willing to bet the reality star's Parisian bestie Olivier Rousteing let her snag it for a pretty steep discount.
KK wisely steered clear of accessorizing the look with a plastic light-up tiara and sash from Party City. They would have totally clashed with all those pearls and embroidery.
