Oh, Vera: Runway Inspiration for Kim Kardashian's Wedding Gown

Before word came down from on high confirming Kim Kardashian's wedding gown designer, we (like everyone else) had a hunch Vera Wang would top the list of possibilities. After all, she designed Khloe Kardashian's dress a year ago, she's a close friend of the K-named family, and... she's Vera Wang. A closer look at the designer's most recent runway shows might provide a few clues as for what to expect on Kim's wedding day: For starters, Vera knows how to work a booty-poppin' body. Her high-waisted, curve-accentuating silhouettes are a perfect fit (literally) for the reality star's famous figure. Better still, Vera's daft hand with fabric means we could see an unexpected shape on Kim, perhaps in the neckline or the skirt (although a peplum on those hips might not be the best idea). Being that Ms. Kardashian is somewhat of a fashion risk-taker, there's even a slight chance she'll wear one of Vera's favored muted tones. Khloe's dress featured a purple sash, so maybe Kim will go head-to-toe? Of course, if all else fails, there's always that attention-grabbing fallback option: gold. —Phillip B. Crook
