China’s “Kim Kardashian” spends Sh3.1 billion on her wedding
China’s Kim Kardashian, Angelababy, has tied the knot in an extremely expensive worth Ksh3.1 billion ($30million) ceremony, complete with a ten-foot tall wedding cake, a holographic castle, a custom Dior gown and 2,000 of her closest friends in attendance, reports Dailymail.
The 26-year-old actress, singer and model kicked off her successful career when she was only 14-years-old, and she is now considered one of Asia’s biggest stars.
Among the thousands of attendees were Asia’s biggest names.
The ceremony reportedly cost twice as much Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West’s wedding which was held in Florence in 2014.
The Telegraph reports the entire venue, Shanghai Exhibition Center, was filled with thousands of roses and the cake – which is believed to have taken a month to make – was designed to look like a carousel.
Unlike most weddings where the newest couple in town receives gifts, Yang’s wedding ceremony introduced a new culture: each of her 2,000 guests was reportedly given a bag full of gifts, including a mobile phone.
Yang’s ring, an enormous six-carat diamond from Chaumet, is said to have cost Ksh158 million (£1m).
Before the big day, which was live-streamed online, Yang and her then husband-to-be posed for portraits in Paris, France and the images were displayed on screens around the wedding venue.
What’s more, the two had originally married in private five months ago.
The Chinese actress has in recent days hogged the headlines after undergoing a facial examination to prove she has not had any cosmetic surgery whatsoever.
People’s Daily Online reports Yang is currently suing a hospital in Beijing for defamation after the facility claimed in a blog post that she had undergone plastic surgery.
The extensive exam reportedly included X-rays of the actress’ face as well as a physical examination.
Several journalists and legal representatives were present. The lead doctor concluded that the actress has not had any plastic surgery to her face.
The only physical change to her appearance has been orthodontics to re-align her teeth.
