We don't know if you've heard, but there was a wedding this weekend.
Someone named Kim Kardashian tied the knot with someone whose name also starts with a K and there was lots of news regarding who wore what, who was invited, how much it all costs and the like.
But all we could focus on, and all we can still think about in the aftermath, is one thing: Kim's diamond headpiece.
Seen in the preview video from E!, which will air the full Kardashian nuptial extravaganza as a two-part special on October 9 and 10, Kim wore part of her $10 million Lorraine Schwartz jewelry haul on her head. The strand of diamonds featured larger, teardrop-shaped diamonds hanging around the front, resting on Kim's bronzed forehead.
Definitely a different sort of wedding look.
Considering Kim doesn't tend to experiment with avant garde fashion, we were surprised to see such a not-trendy style walking down the aisle. White Vera Wang was to be expected, but seeing Kim stray outside conventional wedding trends was not.
But on the other hand, this is a girl who loves her jewels. The new Mr. Kardashian, Kris Humphries, truly outdid himself when he purchased Kim a colossus of an engagement ring that cost a reported $2 million. And even before the ring was bought, there was no doubt that Kim and her sisterly clan had already developed a love for very shiny things.
That said, what do we think of the blingy jewels draped across Kim's head? The piece looked quite silly, but we have to respect Kim for getting creative -- and channeling her heritage. A source told Us Weekly, "She looked very Armenian, like an Armenian princess," with the headpiece being a reference to her ethnic roots and an homage to her late father, Robert Kardashian.
For her fashion daring and her nostalgic nod to family, Kim's headpiece earns a "love it" vote in our book.
