Hollywood celebrities are adding star power to the Renaissance splendour of Florence, as VIPs arrive for what is rumoured to be the wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in a 16th-century fort.
The city’s mayor’s office has said the couple rented Belvedere Fort for a wedding to be performed today by a Protestant minister.
Among the notable sightings in town were Steve McQueen, director of Oscar-winner 12 Years a Slave, and Lala Anthony, wife of NY Knicks basketball star Carmelo Anthony. Also spotted was a Givenchy shopping bag carried by the VIPs’ aides, containing what Sky TG24 TV said was a white lace garment.
The reality TV star and West were spotted shopping at Givenchy in Paris earlier this week.
West, 36, proposed to Kardashian, 33, in October.
