It seems that there is a lot going on behind the scenes of NBC’s answer to Project Runway. First off? Host and supermodel Elle MacPherson won’t be returning. Gearlive.com reports that Elle is calling it quits for season two. She says, “I have been involved with Fashion Star from the beginning, and am very proud to see it come to life, not only in America but globally. The show is in great hands, and although I will not be hosting this season, I will still be very involved [and] will be reviewing the format for the upcoming season.”
That’s code for “artistic differences” isn’t it? Answer me, Austin Scarlett! Not only will Elle be hanging up her hosting cap, but sponsor and affordable fashion house H&M is also bidding adieu to the series. Reportedly sticking around? Hosts Nicole Richie, John Varvatos, and new mom Jessica Simpson.

First up is a report by the NY Post which reveals the Keeping Up With The Kardashiansstar actually dis-invited 50 guests to her wedding at the last minute Wowzers. The reason? There simply wasn’t enough space at the Montecito, California home of Google’s Eric Schmidt, where the wedding is set to take place.
And guess which guests got uninvited? If you guessed anyone with the Kardashian last name, you guessed wrong! The Post reports members of stepdad Bruce Jenner‘s extended family got the axe, as well as any ‘plus one’ guests who weren’t specifically invited. Poor Bruce.
As for the guests who are still invited, that exclusive list includes celebs Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Seacrest, Kathie Lee Gifford, Nicole Richie, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, and Serena and Venus Williams. Kimmie also managed to thrown a bone to the future Mr. Kardashian by inviting some of his New Jersey Nets teammates!
When it comes to Kimmie’s wedding dress, reports state she plans to pick one of three custom-made Vera Wang wedding gowns, each costing up to $25,000, and four pairs of custom-made Louboutins. Those pricey gowns should go well with the reported $20,000 cake. Pimpmomager Kris Jennner reportedly helped Kimmie pick out the 10-tier cake with chocolate chip frosting worth.
The color scheme for the wedding is said to be black and white all the way with Kim picking out some white South African roses as decorations. In fact guests have been asked to only wear black or white attire.
As for the wedding dance, Kimmie, who might or might not have two left feet, has enlisted the help of her former Dancing With The Stars partner Mark Ballas. Kim, 30, and Kris, 26, have reportedly been taking professional lessons from Mark.
And finally, TMZ is reporting that security at the Kardashian-Humphries nuptials will be tighter than Bruce Jenner’s face! Kris Jenner A source reveals the security is treating the event “as if it was the white house.” The reason? Well Kimmie has a deal in place with PEOPLE and E! to publish photos and footage of the big day. So majority of the wedding festivities will take place either indoors or under tents to thwart the paparazzi because the Kardashians don’t want the footage to leak out.
The nuptials, which will take place tomorrow, will be featured on the cover of PEOPLE magazine next week. The E! network also announced it will air the made for TV wedding in a 4-hour special starting Oct. 9.
