Kim Kardashian has dropped another hint as to which high-end designer she could be wearing on her wedding day - Valentino
Kim Kardashian has dropped another hint as to which high-end designer she could be wearing on her wedding day.
The bride-to-be, who is set to marry her rapper fiancé Kanye West on Saturday 24 April, has largely been tipped to marry in Lanvin, Balmain and Alexander McQueen but another luxury label has since been added to the list — Valentino.
Several assistants were seen delivering Valentino suit bags, which are said to contain wedding outfits, from the brand's central Paris store to Kim and Kanye's Rue de Rennes apartment on Wednesday.

Kim Kardashian sparked reports that she would be wearing Valentino
The queen of reality TV is expected to have at least a couple of changes of outfits on her big day, as Kim, 33, has done at her previous two weddings.
The Valentino bags could have contained one of the gowns the star will wear, or could have held her bridesmaids dresses or other outfits belonging to wedding guests. Another option could be that the garments were for Kanye and his groomsmen.

The Italian fashion house is clearly a favourite with Kim, who has donned Valentino on several occasions for red-carpet events and was also wearing a Valentino dress when Kanye popped the question last October.

Valentino Garavani himself will also be throwing a pre-wedding brunch for Kim and Kanye on Friday, according to E! News. The bash will take place in the Château de Wideville, the Italian fashion icon's castle just outside of Paris.
While Kim has remained tight-lipped about which designer she had chosen, an insider close to the bride said that Kim "beyond loves" her wedding dress and that the label was among the world's "elite".
If Kim does choose to walk down the aisle in Valentino, she will be following in the footsteps of celebrity brides such as Anne Hathaway, Courteney Cox and Jennifer Lopez who all wore bespoke creations.
Royal brides who have also donned the designer include Princess Madeleine of Sweden, Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and most recently Monegasque royal Tatiana Santo Domingo.

On Wednesday evening, Kim and Kanye treated the Kardashian family to a lavish dinner at the Costes restaurant. The meal was reported to have cost almost £2,000.
"They sat in a private room off the main dining area, which is where Kanye always likes to sit," an insider told E! News. "He often comes and sits with Jay Z and Beyoncé there during Fashion Week and when they are all in town. Kanye is lovely and always comes here.
"There were around 14 of them. All the Kardashian sisters, who looked beautiful. They ordered an array of starters including avocados, prawns and salads, and then lots of main courses. Kim and Kanye came towards the end and only had dessert.
"The whole family and group also had champagne. They had a great time. All in all, they were here for about an hour and the bill was 2,400 euros ($3,282.72), so they definitely had a good time."
