Fashion Icon Andre Leon Talley Talks Kimye Wedding Details!
May 24, 2014
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally walked down the aisle on Saturday in Florence, Italy, and ET has several teams on the ground to bring you all the latest details and updates.
One of the most high-profile guests to arrive was fashion icon and Zappos Couture and Artistic Director Andre Leon Talley, whom ET caught up with at the Westin Excelsior Florence, where he provided some exclusive tidbits about what's been happening in the lead-up to the wedding.
"It's been a whirlwind of glamor and a whirlwind of sustained mystery," he said of the festivities so far, which included a lavish party Friday night at the Chateau de Versailles outside Paris that ended with a spectacular fireworks display.
Andre also revealed to us some of the strict restrictions guests are under. "We are not allowed to talk, we are not allowed to give details. No one can have cell phones, although some people did sneak cell phones in -- and people Instagramming. It's just been extraordinary."
He added: "Versailles was extraordinary... Kanye and Kim's vision was to give the people a vision of Versailles that was very intimate. It was quite beautiful and stunning, and beautiful weather. I was home by midnight."
Kim and Kanye's wedding took place Saturday afternoon in Florence, with more than more than 200 guests joining family members for the ceremony at the city's famed 16th-century
Belvedere Fort, which the couple reportedly forked over $400,000 to rent
out for the occasion.
