While she may already be officially married to Kanye West, Kim Kardashian is just T-25 days until her blowout Parisian bash. In preparation of the big day, the reality star jetted to Paris to meet up with old friend and tennis pro Serena Williams. The two went shopping for what we can only assume is Kim's highly-anticipated wedding dress. During their girls' day, the ladies were spotted at the luxe hotel Le Meurice and celeb-loved bistro L'Avenue for lunch, as well as a few designers' ateliers. We can't help but wonder whether she was attending fittings for the dress (or three) at these high-profile, high-fashion (and Kanye-approved) couturiers.

Here, the designers we believe will make Kimmie's most important outfit yet — and why.

Balmain: The first stop on Kim's Parisian romp with gal pal Serena? Balmain. The two spent more than an hour at the design house, run by Olivier Rousteing, who's friends with both Kim and Kanye. (The couple met with him during their trip to the City of Light last month!) Plus, Kim has been wearing a suspicious amount of Balmain lately — so much so, that fans have sketched her wearing one of the most memorable looks.

Lanvin: Along with Rousteing, the future Mr. and Mrs. West also met with Alber Elbaz, creative director of Lanvin, during their Parisian jaunt. Kim made a follow-up visit to the Lanvin HQ with Serena, which is why we have a feeling the storied French fashion house might be at the top of the star's list. Also, let's not forget she's wearing a bridal-inspired Lanvin gown on her controversial Vogue cover.

Azzedine Alaïa: The last stop on Kardashian's shopping spree: Azzedine Alaïa's showrooms. Like Balmain, Kim has been rocking a ton of Alaïa lately — vintage Alaïa no less! She also received a personal tour of the fashion house's Palais Galliera exhibition by Mr. Alaia himself just three months ago and subsequently freaked out on Instagram about it.

Case in point: During their walk through the Galliera, Kim snapped a photo and wrote the caption, "Thank you Mr. Alaia for taking me to the Palais Galliera to see your iconic exhibition! Love you!!!"

And she also posted a picture of a few Alaïa archives with the note: "Every single Alaia dress from the exhibit today, even if made decades ago is still wearable today!!! #timeless"

All three are very, very likely possibilities for Kim's wedding dress. And while one may come out on top, we have a feeling all three are contributing some sort of couture to her big day. We can't wait to see what she ends up wearing come May 24!
