As mentioned, celebrity hairstylist Chris, 39, and White Lotus actor Lukas, 27, enjoyed an intimate ceremony with only six total guests in attendance.
Sources report that Kim, 42, was one of those six attendees who made the trek to Sin City to witness and celebrate the marriage.
Clark County records obtained by Page Six also revealed that the newlyweds also applied for a marriage license during their time in Las Vegas.
It was just earlier this month that an insider revealed to Us Weekly that Chris and Lukas were engaged.
The source revealed that the couple had told friends they were engaged and that “they got engaged before they even had rings and then went to pick them out together.”
“Friends think they are a great couple,” the insider divulged.
“Even though they moved very quickly, everyone around them is very excited about their relationship.”
Romance rumors started swirling around Chris and the You star after the hairstylist took to Instagram to share some photos of the pair on vacation together.
Lukas and Chris could be seen sitting atop an ATV with helmets and bandanas, enjoying their adventures in Mexico.
Friends and fans of the pair quickly took to the comments to express their thoughts.
“IG official,” wrote makeup artist Mary Phillips, while YouTuber Claudia Sulewski exclaimed: “I am screeammmingggg.”
Chris would later confirm the pair’s relationship while guesting on The Drew Barrymore Show.
He told the host: “Listen, I’m very happy [and] very much in love. I feel very grateful to be able to share my time with someone very special. Love is a really special thing and, I think, meeting someone that you connect with is very special.”
Producers then flashed a photo of Lukas on the screen behind Drew, 48, prompting the model to state: “That’s Lukas.”
The Euphoria actor openly enthused about his now-fiance days later during an appearance on Today, where he admitted: “I feel very happy, very lucky, and very much in love.”
He also added: “He’s a good-looking man.”
HAIR STYLIST SUPERSTAR
Lukas’s “good-looking man” has climbed his way to the top of the hairstylist world and is often seen working with superstar clients including the Kardashians, Dua Lipa, and JLo.
Chris was born in Leicester, England and the 6-foot-3 stud has a modeling contract with IMG Models, as well as an entertainment contract with WME.
He is also the global creative director of Color Wow hair products – which he often uses on his many celebrity clients.
Appleton’s loyal customers include Ariana Grande, Katy Perry, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, and many more.
His work has been featured in top-tier magazines like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and Marie Claire, as well as on the global runways of iconic fashion houses including Chanel, Fendi, Valentino, and Saint Laurent.
According to his bio by The Wall Group: “Impeccable attention to detail, paired with enviable creative vision, has made Chris into one of the most in-demand hairstylists today.”
In a conversation with his bestie, Kim Kardashian, and Gay Times, Chris explained that the most challenging aspect of his job “is the fact that you and I can like it, but then the rest of the world has an opinion. Or something might look great in real life but might not photograph the same.”
“I think if nobody is discussing anything then you’re not doing the right thing – if people are just like ‘whatever’.”
He added: “If you’re going to do something different and try and push boundaries then it’s good to get that conversation.”
RISE TO FAME
Growing up, Chris always had an affinity for working with hair.
In an interview with Grazia Magazine, he told the outlet his mother, Jane, was his first muse, his first test subject, and his greatest supporter.
“When she looked in the mirror, her expression would change in her face, and her shoulders would go back,” Chris told Grazia.
“I realized that I had this ability to make people feel really good, like emotional medicine. For me, that is what started this journey for me: making people look good, but really making them feel good. When you can do both is when the magic happens.”
Chris got his first job in a hair salon in 1996 when he was only 13 years old, and from there, he traveled to London to take classes and gain more hands-on experience.
In 2010, at the age of 27, he won his first major award in the BBC television competition, Young Hairdresser of the Year.
It wasn’t until 2016, however, when he started working with singer Rita Ora, that his career really blew up.
That year, Chris moved to Los Angeles and has been climbing his way up the ranks ever since.
