Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are engaged! And in true Kimye fashion, the proposal happened in extravagant Hollywood style.
A stadium exclusively rented just for the occasion? Check. A 50-piece orchestra and a huge screen flashing “please marry me” in the background? Check and check. The Lorraine Schwartz ring with an insanely opulent 15-carat diamond was all but a natural part of the lavishness, and when Kanye presented it to Kim, it was already expected that fireworks would explode in the sky. No expense was spared for the proposal, and you know what that means for us here on Your Next Dress: no expense would be spared for the wedding, particularly the wedding dress.

It’s time to place your bets on who you think will design Kim Kardashian’s wedding dress this time around. Or should we say wedding dresses?

Or maybe Kim might do a Kate Middleton and go for Alexander McQueen. Agree or disagree, Kim is often touted as Hollywood’s equivalent of royalty, and was compared even more to the Duchess of Cambridge when they got pregnant almost at the same time last year.

Everyone falls for the romantic femininity of Valentino.

We don’t know why Kim doesn’t wear Elie Saab that much, but she should start doing so ASAP. All those sexy cuts, flowing silhouettes, and wild animal prints fit Kim Kardashian to a T.

If we had to narrow it down to one designer, we’d choose Stephane Rolland for Kim Kardashian, no question. This designer’s look-at-me dramatic flair is Kim Kardashian.
