Kim Kardashian's Paris Visit Balmain Fall 2012 Beaded Embellished Top and Midi Skirt

• Are Kimye married or aren’t they? Surely, there are more pressing questions one should ask, but since we’re talking about the wedding of the #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple, we can divert some precious brain space to this mystery. Several outlets, citing Life & Style as their source, say that the pair signed a California marriage license over the weekend, just weeks before their scheduled May 24th nuptials in Paris. According to the tipster, Kim was all wed and on her way to NYC with baby North. But the New York Daily News had conflicting reports earlier today, saying Kimye was indeed not married yet. Now, the Post has updated to confirm that the legal binding of the two most overexposed entertainers is official. So, from what we know, Kimye will be walking the red carpet at the Met Gala tonight as Mr. and Mrs. West. And life for the rest of us remains unchanged. (Life & Style, NYDN

Kim Kardashian vs. Christina Hendricks in Wes Gordon's  Silver Metallic Lattice Embroidered Pencil Skirt

• Kim Kardashian might be BFF’s with Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci, and been seen palling around Paris with Balmain‘s Olivier Rousteing, but word on the street is the reality star was looking for another designer to craft her wedding dress. Sources say that Kimmy initially asked Victoria Beckham to do the honors, but the British designer refused. “Kim was desperate to wear a VB dress for her big day, but Victoria deals with the very A-list of the showbiz world, including royals, and doesn’t want to be dragged into the world of reality stars,” the source told Perez Hilton. “She also doesn’t really do wedding dresses.” Hmm… I personally don’t believe it, considering Kim’s close relationships with the aforementioned designers. I’d wager Riccardo Tisci would be one of the first people Kim asked to do her dress. What do you think? (Perez Hilton

rihanna lui magazine nude photo shoot

• The folks at Instagram ain’t playin’ with Rihanna. The singer got herself into a bit of trouble with the social media outlet after posting the racy photos from her Lui magazine shoot. You know, the ones where her nips are out. Anyway, Instagram asked Rih to kindly remove the images or risk having her account deleted. Rihanna clapped back with images of fan artwork and other photos mocking the site, which must have ticked the Insta-propriety police off. Earlier this morning, they deleted her Instagram profile, making good on their previous threats. But don’t worry, Navy! The singer’s IG is reportedly live again, although I have had some trouble personally accessing it. I guess Instagram called Rih’s bluff! (Global Grind
