Every bride likes to indulge themselves a little in the run-up to their big day.

A facial perhaps, a mani/pedi, a haircut, spray tan, maybe a few new items for your honeymoon wardrobe. But when you're Kim Kardashian, it's a whole new level.

The reality star, who will marry Kanye West tomorrow in Florence (apparently), has been using the streets of Paris as her catwalk since she arrived in the city on Sunday, May 18. With no apparent need to hurry around doing any last-minute wedding preparations (she's got minions for that), the only job she had to fulfil was looking expensively fantastic and getting photographed. Mission acheived.

We took it upon ourselves to tot up just how much Kim K dropped on her pre-wedding wardrobe - and even our conservative estimate is eye watering. Her cheapest outfit came in at just under €1,235, and it didn't even include a designer handbag. Her priciest comes courtesy of earlier today, when she was spotted en route to designer Valentino's French château in a couture gown by the label, embroidered entirely with butterflies.

It's worth noting that this week's outfits have nothing on her rumoured wedding dress, which is thought to have cost €1.5 million. We know - what on earth can make it cost that much? Stupidity?

May 18: Kardashian lands at Charles de Gaulle airport is a 'casual' outfit consisting of an Hermes Birkin, approx €9,800, a leather Balmain Jacket, approx €3,700, Saint Laurent shoes, €500, and Céline sunglasses, €185. Total = €14,185

 

Later, for a relaxed stroll to get ice cream, surrounded by paparazzi of course, she changed into an American Apparel body, €40, Christian Louboutin 'Spiga' shoes, approx €620, and Mother 'The Looker' jeans, €280, topped off with some Saint Laurent sunglasses, €205. Total = €1,145
