Kim Kardashian ‘obsessed’ with Duchess Kate, wants to copy royal wedding gown


Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian out and about in LA on Friday with her new BFF Blac Chyna. I literally know nothing about Blac Chyna except that Amanda Bynes was obsessed with remaking herself into Blac Chyna back before Amanda was declared incompetent. And honestly, I think Amanda did a pretty good job of looking like Blac Chyna because I thought Kim was walking around with Amanda in these photos. Anyway, they went shopping together – probably for Christmas gifts, I suppose. I think they stopped into the Chanel boutique.

Meanwhile, we’re still theorizing about Kim and Kanye and their wedding, which probably won’t happen until next summer. But we can still theorize, right? Like, is Kanye going to make Riccardo Tisci design Kim’s wedding dress? And just how passive-aggressive is Riccardo going to be about it? Very or completely? But! UK sources (blah) claim that Kim is “obsessed” with Prince William and Duchess Kate’s 2011 royal wedding and she wants her wedding to Kanye to be just like that.

Kim Kardashian wants to have a similar wedding dress to Duchess Catherine’s. The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star is a huge fan of the British royal – who was known as Kate Middleton before her marriage to Prince William – and is planning to walk down the aisle in a frock based on the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown worn by the Duchess for her nuptials in 2011.

A source said: ”Kim is absolutely obsessed with everything Kate and William do. She considers her own family ‘American Royalty’. Kim loves Kate’s style and while she is planning on several gowns for her big day, she wants the one for the ceremony to look something like Kate’s dress. The brief is demure princess and she’ll also wear a tiara.”

Meanwhile, Kim and her fiance Kayne West – who have six-month-old daughter North together – are planning to sit on golden ”thrones” during their reception as they believe it will tie in nicely with the royal-themed home they share in California.

The source told Grazia magazine: ”They think it’d be really cool to have gold thrones to sit on during the reception. They’ve already got a Buckingham Palace-themed room in their new home, which they’re using as inspiration.”

You might dismiss this out of hand, and while this source probably doesn’t even know Kim, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if some of this was true. I remember how Kim talked about Kate Middleton before Kim married Kris Humphries. Kim really DOES see herself as “America’s Princess” and she really thought her wedding to Kris was going to be some triumphant “American royal wedding”. We all laughed at the time. But it would not surprise me at all if she still thinks like that. And quite honestly… I’ve said this so many times and you yell at me every time, but it’s so true: Kate and Kim are very similar people. There. And we already know that Kanye thinks he’s like Prince William and he thinks North West is just like Prince George. Awesome.

    I’m sorry, but Kim in ANY wedding dress would look like a huge orange whale. She likes to wear all of her clothes at least 2-3 sizes too small. I bet she’d try and look sexy–which would make it even worse. I can’t even remember her first wedding dress–all I remember is that stupid head jewelry thing–and I forgot that she and Kanye were even engaged.

    • Suze says:

      The famous Duchess Kate dress would look like warmed over garbage on Kim. It’s definitely not for someone with Kim’s body shape.

      That said, I think Kaiser is right in that Kim and Kanye probably think of themselves as royal, so if they want to make (further) fools of themselves and sit on thrones and wear royal knock-offs, so be it.

      • Stef Leppard says:

        She already tried to be like Kate during her 2nd marriage. That’s why she put her sisters in white wedding dresses, because Pippa wore a white (wedding) dress.

      • janie says:

        Awww, won’t LA’s Princess Hobbit Kim be cute in a dress similar to Kate’s? This woman is truely delusional.

      • emmie_a says:

        Kate’s dress is not for Kim’s body shape — but that hasn’t stopped Kim in the past. She almost never dresses for her size or her shape.

        And I think Kanye has talked about how Nori is royalty so I’m not at all surprised that they think they are all royalty.

        But wow – the delusion in her runs deep. Wasn’t she trying to channel Elizabeth Taylor last week — and now Kate. ugh

      • Florc says:

        Kim has always tried to be like the late Elizabeth Taylor. It’s only rumored she wants to be like Kate. The 2 ladies ARE the same in many, many ways, but Kim has only actively tried to imitate Taylor. The rest is just tabloids.

      • gefeylich says:

        I agree – Kartrashian and Kanye are so clueless they’re feeding into the mockery with all this wedding crap (to what end I don’t know – mockery doesn’t make them any money).

        So let’s see: has Middleton made a sex video, worn the the most hideous clothes in creation, had a stunt wedding/stunt pregnancy/cheap boring reality show? If so, she’s kept it pretty well hidden.

        Okay – Middleton is a climber who succeeded. But she’s also smart, chic, pretty, slim, produced a fairly cute heir to the throne of the UK, has Elizabeth II as a grandmother-in-law, and will be queen consort one day. Kardashian, on the other hand, is a cheesy, clueless, tasteless wannabe who flogs cheap clothes at Sears, looks like a fat chola with a really bad dye and nose job, has horrible dress sense, and absolutely no personality or intelligence. And oh yeah – she has a baby with a stupid name who looks exactly like her narcissistic father who will probably be king of the loony bin one day. Yeah, Kardashian and Middleton are EXACTLY alike.

      • Bgirl81 says:

        Ugh, seriously! I’m short and top heavy and, let me tell you something, that dress would be an abomination on me. Mind you, Size 2 (cough cough) Kim has a solid 20-30 lbs on me, so….yeah, I think it’s the wrong choice. I think we all just have to accept that this wedding is going to be a mess and just enjoy making fun of it, am I right? :)

    • littlestar says:

      While I have no doubt Kim considers herself an “American princess”, I’m calling bull on most of this story – I saw an article (I think on the DM) that showed a recenr aerial shot of their new mansion. It’s completely gutted and not expected to be completed til next summer. So where would this palace room be? PMK’s house? Probably. I can imagine Lucifer’s throne there. LOL!

      Look at the People magazine cover then look at the recent pics of Kim. I still do not understand why she chopped so much off the tip of her nose. She USED to be so gorgeous :( .

  2. Kaylah says:

    I would have thought that after getting married 50-11 times, the novelty would have worn off, guess I was wrong.
    God i hate the way she dresses, she looks like a 40 yr old with 2 adult children.

  3. just lurking says:

    Kate Middleton became royalty by marrying a prince. Kim became known for being f^&^ed on tape and then pissed on. She can wear the same dress at her next wedding but it’s like putting lipstick on a pig – it’s still a pig.

  4. Melissa says:

    I don’t believe this at all, if Kim was obsessed with Kate and wants to dress like her why doesn’t she?

  5. HH says:

    I just said a quick prayer hoping the gold throne idea was true. In Yeezus name, Amen. It would be AMAZING. Just thinking about it makes me laugh uncontrollably.

  6. Renee says:

    OK I’m yelling. Kim and Kate are nothing alike. Kate is pure class. Kim is pure deluded trash.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I’m not yelling, but I don’t get the comparison, either. I’d be interested to know more about it. I guess they both have pushy mothers, but as an American, I find it SO embarrassing when people say the Kardasians are American Royalty. They are trash, and that’s not something I call people lightly.

      • Suze says:

        Both Kim and Kate worked their way into the limelight by affixing themselves to other famous people (Kate to William, Kim initially to Paris Hilton, then Reggie Bush, and on and on)

        Both are known for their looks and who they know (Kate = royal family, Kim = well, the other Kardashian clan members and anyone she can glom on to) and not for their own accomplishments, their own skills, and their own abilities.

        Are the Kardashians classy? No. LOL, no. But you can make a powerful argument that the royal family isn’t exactly a hotbed of class either. They are far more acceptable in polite society, though.

      • GeeMoney says:


        Kate Middleton met Prince William at SCHOOL, not at some party where she was trying to like, creep up next to him and stick her ass in his face and deliberately become a royal. Cut the woman a break.

        As far as I’m concerned, it’s blasphemy to compare Kim to Kate. Just like @Renee said, Kate is pure class, and Kim is trash.

      • Suze says:

        LOL, it’s not blasphemy, for heavens sake. The commenter was asking how Kate and Kim could be compared, and I told her some of the reasons that have previously been discussed on Celebitchy.

        It’s been written that Kate pretty much set her eyes on William the prize before they met at St. Andrews. She had a friend introduce them when they were at boarding school (she herself said she met William a couple of times before St. Andrews), changed her college of choice when it was announced where William was going, and once she became the royal girlfriend, made William her first priority – often only priority – during her twenties until they got married. She worked hard to get married to him. I’m not only “cutting her a break”, I’m giving her enormous credit for a lot of tenacity and commitment, probably more than you are.

        It doesn’t make Kate less “classy”, it doesn’t mean their relationship is a sham (for the record I do think they love each other), and it doesn’t make her vulgar. It just means Kate , in her way, worked her way into the spotlight as assiduously as Kim did.

        There are also enormous differences between the women. Those are obvious so I’ll spare you the list.

      • Fue McCormick says:

        “Kate is pure class.” HaHaHa …

      • Florc says:

        Kim and Kate has so much in common. The only things seperating the 2 is a title (which in these days doesn’t mean all that much). And the PR team that protects Kate and her family.

      • T.C. says:

        Kate got Wills attention by wearing a see through dress on a fashion runway. I don ‘t see what’s so classy about that. Girl set her eyes on him then stalked him to the same college, same group of friends and got a B.S. Degree in art history so they could call her a college graduate. At least Kim works for her money. Kate earns it from getting on her back and pumping out royal babies. Royal family is jus good PR.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I see what you all are saying, but I think many people, men and women, who marry a famous person in their 20s do so before they have any real achievements of their own. That’s not the same to me as starting out your “career” of being famous for being famous with a sex tape.

        @T.C. I majored in Art History and English Lit and I did so because I love them both, not because it was easy and I just wanted to say I had a college degree. And it’s a B. A., not a B.S.

    • Red32 says:

      I agree. Kate on her worst day isn’t as vulgar as the Kardashians.

    • Chrissy says:

      I think the only things they have in common are being social-climbers and having devious, scheming, over-bearing mothers.

    • Terri says:

      I agree with you. They are nothing alike. Kate married into Royalty and has a college degree. She is an educated woman. She is not really a celebrity either. Kim Kardashian became known because of a sex tape, runs a dying reality tv show and no one really like her in the US. I think to compare them is stupid. They are not anything alike but Kate Middleton is not well liked on this site and Kim is for some strange reason. Kim Karadshian and Angelina Jolie are two people on this site who no one is allowed to say anything bad about, no matter how true it is.

      • Suze says:

        Did you read the comments on this thread? On any Kim Kardashian thread on CB? I wouldn’t say she’s liked on this site. And your last sentence made me burst out laughing. There’s so much trash talked about Kim on this site it’s not funny.

        And yes, the royal family counts as celebrities. Even Prince Charles has said they are primarily viewed as a long running soap opera.

      • TG says:

        @Terri – every post I have read about Kim, including this one most of the comments are negative regarding Kim. I agree with you 100% regarding Jolie which is why I usually stay away from those comments since there seems to be borderline crazy fans and non fans out there.

    • Nina W says:

      There’s a lot of jealous people who can’t stand Kate but there is a huge difference between porn-star Kim and William’s pick Kate. It’s sad that some people feel the need to equate the two women for superficial reasons.

  7. Birdie says:

    Also: “And just how passive-aggressive is Riccardo going to be about it? Very or completely?” Hilarious!

  8. Amanda says:

    Kim looks really different now than she did on that wedding cover, just such a short time ago.

  9. Christin says:

    She makes most any frock look trashy. I don’t know what designer would want to touch this project, other than the deluded one’s buddy. Maybe she can have a large number 3 on the dress, as in, “Third time’s the charm!”

  10. swack says:

    For goodness sakes Kim, this is your THIRD marriage. Find a nice quiet place with only immediate family in attendance to get married. And what is with wanting to wear several gowns at the wedding. I know she had three last time and I just don’t get it!

  11. Audrey says:

    That magazine cover just has me feeling sad about rose McGowan’s face all over again

  12. GeeMoney says:

    Dear Lord Jesus… please make Kim and Kanye go away… PLEASE!

  13. Tracy says:

    Yes, the golden shower princess.

  14. Meow Mix says:

    Bitch please!

  15. Shannon1972 says:

    Could care less about her wedding (again), but I really, really love that coat. It looks so soft and cozy, and with it being so darn cold here I would wrap myself in it and wear it all day.

  16. Lynne says:

    I hate that Blac Chyna always walks behind Kim.

  17. Kelly says:

    She’ll do the same dress, but have the shoulders cut out, or the back draped with pearls. Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

    She dresses like a cast reject from Dynasty meets Vegas.

  18. NewWester says:

    Kim had a “golden shower” so I guess sitting on golden thrones is fitting

  19. Annie says:

    She can spend and make all the money she can but she’s still a skank. She cannot stop being a skank. Kate could be poor, she’s still be too classy for Kim to try to be.

  20. lady mary. says:

    i hate that they called her a hobbit in that southpark episode ,its an insult to the Hobits ,she belongs more in the”ORCS” category ,as 4 them bothh acting and dressing up us royals i hope they do so , that woud be one of the greatest comic acts ever

    • Hautie says:

      OMG… I finally had a chance to watch that South Park episode this weekend. (I had TIVO it)

      Favorite part:

      Kayne keeps calling her… when he can’t explain away her hobbit looks. Or why she lives below ground… to the kids in the classroom.

    • Terri says:

      LOL I agree. The Hobbits are really cute and work harder then this stupid sex-tape famed loser. You saw in the beginning of of FOTR, it showed the hobbits working hard on their farms, tending to their deeds,etc. Also, atleast the hobbits did something meaningful in the world of middle earth. Does Kim contribute to do anything good in the real world? Kim doesn’t work hard. She doesn’t have a job or do anything important. And I would even say that its not fair to put her with the orcs either, beause they atleast have work to do. They probably work 10 times harder then this moron or her even dumber fiancee.

  21. Lizzie says:

    “Prince William aint doin right if you aaask me/if I wuz him i woulda married kate and aaashley.”

  22. dorothy says:

    Kim, don’t make a fool out of yourself. Your not in the same league as Kate.

  23. Tiffany says:

    The fact that she did not share her wedding cover with Kris is very telling of the kind of person Kim is. These two clowns are going to fight to the very end for covers. You think Yezzus is going to roll over.

  24. LadySlippers says:

    Stop the presses!!!!
    I’m surprised no one has commented about this.

    If Kim is seriously obsessed with Kate, could THAT be the reason her face is changing???
    Go and look at the pics of Kim again — Kim’s FACE looks more like Kate’s now. I’ll bet that’s the face she’s morphing her face into. I was shocked when I saw it but I think Kim is obsessed with WAY more than just in Kate’s style….


    • ZL1 says:


      You may be on to something!

    • Chibichichai says:

      Then homegirl has a way to go and it doesn’t make sense. Kate’s nose is more round at the tip and Kim’s previous nose jobs gave her a pointed tip. Kate has long, somewhat thick brown hair. Kim’s hair is medium and a wannabe Beyoncé blonde/ombré. Kate also has thinner lips and thicker eyebrows.

      With all that said, Kim looks more like Ciara or Beyoncé. Given Kanye’s constant comparisons between Jay and himself, I’m betting she’s trying for Barbie meets Beyoncé and calls herself a princess.

      By the way, I saw your post about a tiara a day blog and now I’m obsessed.

    • Sumodo1 says:

      By George, I think you’ve got it!

    • Florc says:

      Kim’s face looks like many women’s faces that keep getting plastic surgery. They just keep chipping away. By that argument Kim is trying to look like RHOBH.
      If Kim had an article that claims she had eyeliner tattooed on I would believe this more.
      I’m usually right behind you in your comments, but this is feeding the pure hate people wish upon another person they consider less than them. And during the holidays I have a lesser tolerance for it.

      • LadySlippers says:

        It was something that struck me when I saw their chins and noses (possibly other face parts) that look very very similar now. I was not thinking about it adding to the nastiness as I don’t think that way. To me, the thought one person needs to morph into anyone else is just incredibly sad. That was more what I was trying to say more than anything.

        I sincerely apologise as I was not intending it to add to to the dirt Kim is already facing.

      • Nina W says:

        Florc, it is not “feeding the pure hate” to comment on Kim’s face and you have no right to pass that judgement on an innocent comment. I get that you’re a Stan but that doesn’t mean that your object of affection is a victim of bullies. Kim makes her living selling her image and her life, she wants to be talked about good or bad and she would not thank you for interfering in that.

  25. Angelic 21 says:

    Both Kim and Kate are very bad role models to young girls for very different reasons. But if someone puts a gun on my head and ask me to pick 1 b/w them, I’ll pick Kim because at least she earns her own money, does not expect me to pay for her mansions and luxuries or curtesy her and pays her taxes.

    • Nina W says:

      Really, so you’ll be encouraging your daughters to release a p-rn tape and then be on a reality show that exploits every aspect of their lives and all their relationships? You want them to be so self-obsessed that they feel compelled to constantly go under the knife to alter their appearance and to endlessly broadcast “selfies” in relentless self-promotion? You want them to get involved with some man-child like Kanye? Personally, I’ll take Kate and the extremely boring royal family over anything Kim related. Kim is a terrible role model for anyone anywhere. And BTW the Royals do much more charity work for society than any of the Kardashian klan, there is no comparison.

  26. Amelia says:

    Is Kimmidia really going to have a white dress and veil again?!! On her third (ho) stroll down the aisle?
    So tacky. So Kartrashian.

  27. Dawn says:

    Oh that Kimmode is so funny! She knows darn well that Kate’s dress was far too demure for the likes of her. She would have to make it far tighter and add some rips to it. Again, Kimmode is starting to live her life like it is a South Park parody, she truly is.

  28. Léah says:

    Blac Chyna was (?) a stripper that got pregnant with Tyga’s kid (A rapper.) Kinda funny that they’re friends actually.

  29. MsDaisy says:

    Kim has always had this princess complex. I watched her episode of Cribs when she was just growing into her own celeb and not just Paris Hilton sidekick. She goes on and on and on about how she is a princess and she had all these pink crowns embroidered onto her car and other stuff. She really thinks she can be a princess or some type of royalty. You see how hard she tried to get Kate Middleton to meet her and it didn’t work. Its like she took every Disney princess movies to heart. I’m surprised she doesn’t wear a Tiara more often.

  30. poof says:

    How many times can one can married and keep wearing white like its their first time? Whata joke!

  31. BeckyR says:

    MAKE IT STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  32. bettyrose says:

    Ugh many a terrible marriage began with a superficial idiot who just wanted a fancy wedding.

  33. themummy says:

    Um, no…. Kim Kardashian and Duchess Kate are not the same, or similar, people at all.

  34. Devon says:

    Trash is as trash does. Wanting to wear an actual wedding gown for her THIRD WEDDING? I guess I should have known better since she literally has no class.

  35. CharmingFrock says:

    Kate’s dress…with a few strategic cut outs, right?

  36. CoolWhipLite says:

    Love that she’s covering her midsection with that file-folder looking purse, so as to not negate the photoshopped images on Us Weekly’s current cover touting her post-baby figure. And Blac Chyna? I don’t know what that thing is all about, but she looks unwell.

  37. Leirties says:

    I think its really pathietc how obessed she is with the Royals. She tried to upstage their wedding in 2011, it did not work. She tried to upstage Kate’s pregnancy in 2013, it still did not work.
    Kate probably doesn’t even know who Kim is.
    Also more importantly, who is going to even give Kim another tv wedding? After what happened with that basketball player, I don’t think anyone will give her a TV wedding. She used up 30 million dollars, kept the expensive gifts and basically scammed E. I heard her family is in debt because of her disatrous wedding.

  38. Nikollet says:

    Surely Kate’s dress would be too demure for Kim?

  39. evanence says:

    What a joke, she think she can copy Kate? My own dog probably know who Kate and the Royals are. Kim is a nobody on the big scale of things, I have friends and family that don’t even know who she and her family is. Nobody cares about some ugly Pee Queen or her ugly fiancee and their child other then some uneducated stupid people.
    Comparing Kate with Kim? LOL. Its like comparing a pile of wet, drizzly, flie filled stinking sh-t( Kim) with with a sparkling diamond( Kate).
    Or better yet, will Pee Queen and her fiancee even make it to the wedding? I highly doubt it.

  40. Palermo says:

    She just can’t seem to grasp that the same outfit on a very tall willowy figure and a short bulbous hobbit looks very different.

  41. Melinda says:

    Except you and your family are trash.

  42. Carolyn says:

    Kim’s too fat to wear a dress the same style as Kate’s. I could be PC and say she’s the wrong body shape but I won’t.

    • JennyLd says:

      That was probably a rumour created by the Kardashians PR team, please these are the same people wrote that horrible article about Kim and Kate being due the same day.
      They also put out a story about Brad Pitt being a fan of the Kardashians and that he gave them baby advice lol. Sorry not buying that either Kate or Brad likes to watch Kims crap show, and I doubt they even know who Kim is.

      • dominique says:

        Hmmm, well that is one theory but I can totally see Kate hunkered down on a (chippendale) sofa in her favourite flannels with a bag of Haribo, binge-watching the Kardashians. I imagine that’s what she was doing the night her husband was out singing with Taylor Swift and JBJ at the gala at KP. Or must we pretend the princess is all posh all the time?

  43. Lisa says:

    ugh, of course an American would be enchanted by the royal family.
