Kris Jenner hosted daughter Kim Kardashian's bridal shower Saturday at the family's Calabasas estate.
The black-and-white-themed event brought out many of the reality stars' closest friends and family, of course, before Kim and fiance Kris Humphries headed to Vegas to celebrate their bachelor and bachelorette parties.
The happy event, however, was overshadowed by the death of Amy Winehouse, which gave a somber tone to the afternoon. Before the news broke, Kim was Tweeting to pals Kelly Osbourne and Demi Lovato about her excitement for the impending party:
- Cant wait to c u! RT @MissKellyO getting ready 4 a wedding shower 4 the worlds most beautiful bride 2 be @KimKardashian i cant wait 2 c u
I love u! Can't wait! RT @ddlovato: Getting ready for the beautiful @KimKardashian's wedding shower!! Can't wait to see you lady! :)
Once word spread of the Rehab singer's death, Kim and her pals took to Twitter to express their sadness:
- Kim Kardashian: I just heard the news that Amy Winehouse passed away. What a true talent. I pray she's in a better place and at peace.
Kelly Osbourne: I can't even breath right my now. I'm crying so hard. I just lost one of my best friends. I love you forever Amy and will never forget the real you!
Demi Lovato: So sad. Unfortunately the world lost an incredibly talented woman to such a powerful disease: addiction. RIP.
Kim said recently of her upcoming bachelorette party in Sin City: "I'm not really into all the typical [bachelorette party] things, so I'm hoping that's not the case," she said when asked about sister Khloe's plans to host an "embarrassing" evening in her honor. "I'm just going into it with a really open mind and not really thinking about it. I just want to have a really good get away."
