Kanye & Kim's Epic Rehearsal Dinner: Costumes, Fireworks And Lana Del Rey
We never expected the Kimye wedding to be anything short of fabulous, and so far, we've been right.
The couple have pulled out all the stops to make their fairy-tale dreams come true, and on Friday, Kanye gave Kim one more big surprise before walking down the aisle: a performance by Lana Del Rey.
It was reported that the singer would perform at the wedding, but instead she wowed guests during the rehearsal dinner at the famed Palace of Versailles in the iconic Hall Of Mirrors.
Valentino Fashion House president Giancarlo Giammetti, who spent the morning with the couple at a pre-wedding brunch at designer Valentino Garavani’s castle, posted a photo of Lana singing to the crowd in a long, gold-colored, short-sleeved dress.
Another photo showed the "Summertime Sadness" singer posing with Kim, her sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie, as well as mom Kris Jenner.
Giammetti also snapped a pic of Kanye and Kim, giving each other the look of love. Kim is holding a mic, most likely addressing her guests, and looking fabulous in a white gown with a plunging neckline.
According to E!, Lana performed three songs for the couple, which most likely included "Young & Beautiful," the song performed by a 50-piece orchestra during Kanye's proposal to Kim.
But that wasn't the only entertainment of the evening, E! also reported that a full orchestra played for the crowd as guides dressed in 18th-century costumes gave tours of the Palace and horse and carriage rides. The couple ended the night with a bang, lighting up the Paris night with a fireworks display.
Guests included LaLa Anthony, Larsa Pippen, Jonathan Cheban, Serena Williams, Alexander Wang and Big Sean, who got stuck in a paparazzi-induced traffic jam while trying to pull up to the venue.
And all this is just the beginning. Next up, Kim, Kanye and their guests take off for Florence, Italy, where they'll make it official with what is to be no doubt another over-the-top celebration.
