Barely two weeks after KIM KARDASHIAN got hitched, racing heiress PETRA ECCLESTONE‘s own nuptials eclipsed the Kris Jenner-orchestrated media monstrosity. Guess Kim got outdone by a real class act, didn’t she?
Petra, the Croatian-English daughter of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, like Kim is a model, fashion designer, and socialite. She recently bought the late producer, Aaron Spelling‘s $85 million mansion in L.A. – a price she considered a steal.
Star news found out that Petra‘s wedding to James Stunt cost $6.5 million and wasn’t footed by a cable network. The bride arrived serene and ethereal in a Rolls Royce at the Italian castle where the wedding was held, and no security helicopters were heard overhead, ruining the solemnity of her vows.
Like Kim, she wore a Vera Wang dress, a custom-made one that cost $120,000 that wasn’t given away by the designer for free. Petra was serenaded by Andrea Bocelli as she walked down the aisle, and rock legend Eric Clapton played her first dance.
Guests, among whom included the Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson and her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, as well as Paris and Nicky Hilton sipped wine from $6,000 vintages, Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne, and were entertained by acrobats and fireworks during the reception.
Sorry Kardashian Klan. Nothing beats the real thing, doesn’t it?
