Bar Refaeli Among the 100 Guests at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Wedding

The Israeli supermodel, however, might have to disappoint her 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

Over the weekend invitations were sent out for what could be the wedding of the year: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s bash in Paris on May 24. Only 100 people were invited, and the only Israeli is Bar Refaeli, who met the couple during Paris Fashion Week in July 2012 and has become friends with Kardashian.

In an attempt to thwart the paparazzi, the invitations, printed on simple paper in gold lettering, don’t say very much. Guests were merely told they will receive directions upon arriving in Paris. A rehearsal dinner will be held the evening before.

The invitation, however, came with a 15-page pamphlet containing do’s and don’ts for the wedding — much of it has to do with taking pictures and sharing them on social-media sites. Refaeli, for example, has 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

We can probably rely on Kardashian to share photos from the wedding, as she did over the weekend during her bachelorette party, which made the rounds on Instagram and Twitter. The dress-code instructions focus on the men: Don’t forget the tuxedo.
