US reality TV star Kim Kardashian and her sisters were out and about in Paris on Thursday followed by hordes of paparazzi, TV crews and fans. Kardashian is set to unofficially wed hip hop singer Kanye West, during a private tour of the Palais de Versailles on Friday.

The Kardashian clan were spotted on Thursday taking selfies and shopping at designer shops in the French capital, according to French website Au Feminin.

They even managed to squeeze in an obligatory trip to the Eiffel Tower.

Accompanied by her daughter North West, the bride-to-be arrived on Monday with around 12 pieces of luggage. Their every move has been detailed in both the Anglo and French media, although Parisians themselves seem to have been a bit bemused by the whole affair. It's fair to say Kim Kardashian is not a household name among the Paris elite.

On Thursday she was joined by the rest of her family, including her model sister and fellow Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kendall Jenner.

West and Kardashian wanted to get married at the Palais de Versailles but were refused permission by authorities.

They have been granted the right to have their private tour of the palace however, where they will symbolically tie the knot. 

An official wedding ceremony is believed to be lined up for Saturday morning in Paris, before Kardashian, West and their entourage head to Florence in Italy for a no expense spared knees up.

Guests are rumoured to include pop stars Beyoncé and husband Jay Z.
