Kim Kardashian's pre-wedding shopping spree

KIM Kardashian and Kanye West spent $8,000 in a pre-wedding splurge in Paris.

The happy couple - who are set to wed in Florence, Italy, this weekend - were spotted in the French capital browsing its designer stores ahead of their big day.

A source told E! news they were "gazing in shop windows and popping in and out of their favourite stores. Kim was smiling non-stop."

After browsing the boutiques of Saint Laurent, Versace, Miu Miu and Balenciaga without making purchases, the rapper and the reality star bought a few items from Céline.

A bystander said: "Kanye was very supportive and would lend his fashion expertise while Kim was trying on clothes.

"She tried on a couple of asymmetrical skirts, gray sweatpants, and a gold square bracelet."

Kim, 33, bought a $5,600 black skirt with pom-pom embellishments and navy and white stripped skirt for $2,100 as well as a long army green skirt. She also took home a pair of new Mask sunglasses in orange for $420.

Ahead of the wedding, the couple are having a party in Paris at the Chateau Louis XIV, and have reportedly filled a pool with special pink water to impress guests as well as installing a huge air freshening system into the building as it is situated close to a major sewage works.

The duo are expecting some 200 guests, including Kim's huge family and Kanye's best friend Jay Z and his wife Beyonce.
