Kim Kardashian Cashes In Big on Wedding to Kris Humphries

David Livingston/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Continuing in the tradition that started when exposure on a reality TV show turned into a family business empire, Kim Kardashian is cashing in -- big time -- on her weekend wedding to basketball player Kris Humphries.

Kardashian is being so well paid for her lavish nuptials that she'll end up in the black.

The wedding, held Saturday in Montecito, Calif., cost an estimated $500,000, but according to published reports, the bride was paid $1.5 million by People magazine for exclusive rights to photos of the event.

The magazine apparently paid the pair an additional $300,000 for exclusive rights to pictures of their engagement announcement earlier this year.

And OK! magazine reportedly paid $100,000 for exclusive rights to photos of the bridal shower.

And that's not all. Here are a few other ways the reality TV family is saving and earning on the wedding:

  • The bride wore a $20,000 Vera Wang bridal gown. She didn't pay for it, reports say.
  • Her 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring, valued at a reported $2 million, apparently cost the groom a fraction of that.
  • Posh Los Angeles' bakery Hansen's Cakes apparently gave Kardashian and Humphries their $15,000 wedding cake. The cake had 10 layers and decadent frosting, inspired by Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding.


Celebrity event producer Tony Schubert told The Hollywood Reporter that because Kardashian is viewed as a "tastemaker" by so many brides-to-be, many are eager to be associated with her.

The wedding will be broadcast on E!, the network that airs the hit reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, as well as hit spin-offs including her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe.

E! will air Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event Oct. 9 and 10, and the network is expecting it to be a ratings bonanza.

Among the guests were Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, the Williams sisters, Kelly Osbourne and, of course, Humphries' New Jersey Nets teammates.

Kate Middleton's Wedding Dress: Fashion Expert Tim Gunn Weighs In

ABC/ HAZEL THOMPSON(LONDON) -- "This was a fashion orchestration," said Project Runway style guru Tim Gunn on the wardrobe selections Friday at Prince William and Catherine’s nuptials.

Gunn had nothing but praise for the newly named duchess of Cambridge, and her wedding dress. In describing her look, Gunn kept repeating the word "ravishing." When asked to expand on this, he said, "Simply, she took my breath away."

While Kate's wedding dress has been compared to the one worn by Princess Grace, who married Rainier III, the Prince of Monaco in 1956, Gunn said Kate's "couldn't have been more modern." Whereas Grace's dress had modest lace up to her chin, Kate's look was all opened up, revealing a demure bit of cleavage. It was "stunningly paired with the exuberance of the skirt," said Gunn.

Even though Kate's fashion eye is drawn to minimalism, she knew she had to sustain attention for a four-minute walk down the red-carpeted aisle of Westminster Abbey, which explained her full skirt and elaborate lace bodice.

Her sister, Phillippa "Pippa" Middleton, wore a simple column silhouette that reflected "what people thought Kate would look like," said Gunn. "Had that been on Kate, we would have been disappointed."

Gunn said some fashion experts would no doubt question Kate's dress design. "There will always be detractors at events on this scale."

But the clothing on view at Friday's royal wedding is sure to influence trends across the world, an exciting prospect for anyone interested in cultivating a current wardrobe. "I maintain," Gunn said, wrapping up the day, "it doesn't get any better than this."
