    Kim Kardashian and Kanye's West's pre-wedding brunch, thrown by Valentino Garavani, was just as magical as we imagined!

    André Leon Talley was a guest at the lavish yet intimate fete, and the fashion editor recounted all the details for Vogue—including what a perfect little angel North West was.

    Kimye & Co. arrived to Valentino's Château de Wideville via motorcade, but it was Nori who made the grandest entrance of all! The 11-month-old tot was carried into the castle by Kim, "dressed in anthracite gray and tights, no shoes," with the rest of her glam fam and mom's close friends right behind her.

    Mr. Talley noted that North "cried not once nor grimaced" at any point in the celebrations, but with "curious focus, like her father," she took in all the beauty surrounding her—like "the Meissen monkey candlesticks [and] every plate, including the rare chargers, white porcelain with swans, floating on crested china of Elizabeth II of Russia."

    Valentino's toast to the couple—and to Kris Jenner "for having these beautiful girls"—"brought tears" to André's eyes. The fashion designer went on to wish Kim and Kanye "much success, a lot of love, and a long life."

    "Mama," what Valentino reportedly calls Kris, followed up with a toast of her own to "Kim and Kanye, who love each other," André wrote. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star continued with a nod to Valentino's picture-perfect home, exclaiming, "I say for all of us, this is the most beautiful place we've ever been."

    The bride-to-be, Kris and Valentino chatted about Pilates, André revealed in his Vogue piece, adding that Kim "got up to feed baby North between the first and second courses."

    Khloé took a turn holding her niece, too, while Kris' mom, Mary Jo Jenner, played with Nori's "shoeless, stocking feet as she talked to her great-granddaughter."

    André recapped another particularly sweet moment from the brunch, writing, "By dessert time, North was nibbling on Valentino's dark chocolate from a beautiful dish," and he "heard her say 'Pa,' looking for her father."
     
    Too cute! The family also enjoyed a quick tour of the grounds and posed for a few portraits. But when André asked Kanye "about certain details, Kanye said only "I don't know what you are talking about?" like the cat that ate the canary (yet this cat had a solid pavé diamond and gold grill inlaid on his bottom molars)."
