Kim Kardashian’s best friends appear to have been caught out by the latest change of venue for Saturday’s wedding (24May14) – they have all been fitted for gowns inspired by French queen Marie Antoinette.
Michael Costello tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood he was asked to outfit six of Kardashian’s pals for the socialite’s third trip up the aisle, which reports suggest is now taking place in Florence, Italy after the reality TV star and rapper Kanye West failed to meet residency criteria to exchange their vows in Versailles, France.
He reveals Brittny Gastineau, Larsa Pippen, Blac Chyna and Carla Dibello all came to him for help, requesting Marie Antoinette-inspired gowns. Costello says, “They all wanted little elements of something very Gothic, romantic, masquerade-like. They were all stern about using lace… and having mermaid bottoms.”
He also admits Gastineau, Pippen and Blac Chyna have two outfits prepared for the weekend celebrations, which will begin with a cocktail party in France on Friday night (23May14). And the designer reveals he’ll be working with the bride herself when she returns from her honeymoon, adding, “I did make some sketches for her for another event that we’re talking about in the future.”
