FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Hollywood celebrities are adding star power to the Renaissance splendor of Florence, as VIPs arrive for what is rumored to be the wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in a 16th-century fort.

The city's mayor's office has said the couple rented Belvedere Fort for a wedding to be performed Saturday by a Protestant minister.

Among the notable sightings in town were Steve McQueen, director of Oscar-winner "12 Years a Slave," and Lala Anthony, wife of NY Knicks basketball star Carmelo Anthony. Also spotted was a Givenchy shopping bag carried by the VIPs' aides, containing what Sky TG24 TV said was a white and lacey garment.

The reality TV star and West were spotted shopping at Givenchy in Paris earlier this week.

West, 36, proposed to Kardashian, 33, in October.
