Kim Kardashian and fiance Kris Humphries went shopping for their wedding registry at Gearys yesterday, a store that specializes in severe lampshades and angry-looking napkin rings. Come, let us tour the online registry for their Wedding of the Century. We seem to have a Wedding of the Century every month now, no? [Image via Bauer-Griffin]
At $6500, "the Black Tourbillion vase from Lalique is the epitome of elegance." It resembles a piece of charcoal.
By contrast, "Ingrid Black Vase from Lalique" ($4625) looks like a kindergartener's pencil grip, the rubbery kind that has fingerprint-shaped divets so you learn how to hold your pencil correctly.
And the Baccarat Abysse Small Onyx Vase ($1600) is normal, if a bit severe.
Kim's dish choices are Hermès, from the esteemed Parisian company's "Patterns appropriate for armband tattoos" collection.
Though often questionable in taste, the types of items in Kim's registry are pretty normal. Turns out comically opulent consumption-bots have material needs similar to those of normal humans. (Utensils to feed themselves, vessels for holding things.) Their superfluous wedding crap is more ornate and expensive, is all.
