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.
Ugliest items: The "New York Clock - Black," "Cactus Flacon #2," and these statuettes of naked men curling up in tantrum balls.
Kim's dish choices are Hermès, from the esteemed Parisian company's "Patterns appropriate for armband tattoos" collection.
At $7850, the Baccarat Cosmos Extra Large Vase is Kim's most expensive Gearys item. The cheapest items are $12 napkins, but there were no pictures of those, so here are the $22 napkins, instead.
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.
