Well… it happened. The #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple finally tied the knot this weekend in Florence at the famous Forte di Belvedere amongst their closest family and friends in a “private” ceremony that they were no doubt paid millions of dollars by the E! Channel to broadcast in some horrible television special that we will ALL watch and say we didn’t. While her Givenchy couture wedding dress, Lana Del Rey pre-wedding pouty serenade, and lengthy celeb guest list (our invite got lost in the mail, obvz) are all notable talking points, here are three of our favorite moments that’ve been circling the media, keeping us talking…
Beyonce’s Shady Insta
Queen Bey was nowhere to be found at the ceremony despite Kimye’s (desperate) attempt to get the singer and her hubz there. Yonce instead instagrammed herself lounging very much not in Italy just moments before the ceremony, because, what’s a Kardashian?? Right after, she posted a pic of the (second most) royal fam of hip hop, wishing them a “lifetime of unconditional love” which actually meant, “Hopefully this lasts more than 72 hours.”
Beliebers Storm the Fountain
Italian Beliebers were out in the hundreds to get a glimpse of the “Baby” singer who was believed to be present at the nuptials, but were later disappointed to find out he was actually in Cannes doing normal dick things like posing in baby diaper harem pants with his douche-stash for the film festival.
Rob Kardashian Crying Because Fat
While Kim’s baby bro was seen in Paris for the pre-celebrations, the newfound fatty skipped out on the ceremony because, well…he’s fat. According to the news, he’s been “working” on his weight and rather than join the fam in Italy he’d rather go cry over a pint of ice cream. It’s okay Rob…we’d rather do the same too.

Sunday night’s Golden Globes were kind of a mess. Speeches were awful, some winners were undeserving, and, contrary to prevailing opinion, there wasn’t nearly enough Ricky Gervais, whose inappropriate comments made the show worth watching. Seriously, Foreign Press, can we invite him back next year? One of the positive aspects of the Golden Globes is that the awards show helps inspire actors who daydream about being Golden Globe winners. In fact, this year they deliberately brought on super-young celebrities as hosts (Zac Efron, Justin Beiber, that vampire guy) to lure a younger demographic. And maybe that awkward acceptance speech (here’s looking at you, Natalie Portman) will ultimately become a reality for a handful of those wanna-be thespians. But in the meantime, aspiring actors of all ages can live vicariously through the nominees at The Peninsula Beverly Hills.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills recently launched a “Red Carpet-Ready Experience,” a package that lets you feel like a celebrity for a day. The experience begins in your hotel room or suite, where a professional stylist will give you a glam make-over, including hair and make-up. Heck, they even throw in fancy jewelry from the hotel’s very own Henri J. Sillam boutique. After you’re camera ready, award-winning photographer Ryan Forbes (Elle, Conde Nast Traveler, Town & Country) will snap away in the Living Room or Roof Garden or in front of the hotel’s Rolls Royce. The Peninsula Beverly Hills will also throw in a backdrop used at Hollywood movie premieres and an unfurled red carpet to make it seem more authentic. All this, including final 8×10 color portraits, for the nominal price of $950. Unfortunately, paparazzi, groupies, and extras (or “talent,” as they now say in Hollywood) not included.
