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


May 19: For a peruse of the designer stores on offer she wore an Ermanno Scervino suede skirt, approx €865, Gianvito Rossi shoes, €460, Saint Laurent sunglasses (as before), an American Apparel bodysuit, €40. Total = €1,365


May 20: Wearing a nude Margiela bodysuit, €185, Tom Ford lace-up scallop shoes, approx €1,235, YSL glasses (as before) as she totters into the Four Seasons clutching daughter North. Total = €1,420


May 21: Dressing up for lunch in a Céline coat, €2,470+, Ermanno Scervino suede dress, approx €1,851 Saint Laurent shoes, €550. Total = €4,871


And later in the same Céline coat (as before), a unidentified dress, and Balmain x Guiseppe Zanotti shoes, €900. Total (excluding dress) = €2,730+


May 22: You'll find no rucksack and trainers when Kim plays tourist (below, left). For a visit to the Eiffel Tower she eschewed comfortable gear in favour of a Balmain shirt, €2,830, and skirt, approx €2,470, Tom Ford shoes, €950, and YSL sunglasses (as before) = €6,250


For her hen night that evening she changed into an autumn/winter 2012 Balmain dress, €14,815 and Guiseppe Zannoti 'Yvette' pumps, €560. Total = €15,375


May 23: Wearing Valentino Haute Couture to attend a brunch in her honour at the designer's château. Prices for couture gowns begin at around €18,500, and for something with this level of workmanship - hand embroidered, full length - the price tag could be as much as €61,000.
