It seems Kim Kardashian's life just couldn't get any better.
Having openly admitted she was 'dreading' turning 32, the reality star went on to have the 'best birthday ever!'
And as she returned to New York after this weekend's surprise whirlwind trip to Italy, Kim was in for yet another treat.
After flying in, she immediately changed into a plunging cobalt blue gown to accompany her rapper beau Kanye West to the Angel Ball.
With her gown cut to the thigh, Kim looked every inch the (blue) belle of the ball.
The gown opened as she walked to reveal the extra height of her black platforms.
There was no hint of any jetlag behind her perfect make up and curled hair as she smiled happily on the arm of her lover.
Kanye was equally snazzy in a bow tie and tails. He looked admiring at Kim as they posed together.
The 35-year-old is certainly in Kim's good books after her birthday to remember.
She boasted on her blog that she'd had the 'most incredible romantic trip ever' - all thanks to Kanye.
Obviously knowing the way to her heart he flew Kim to Rome and Venice.
Once there he showered her with flowers, escorted her to the finest Italian restaurants and treated the shopaholic to a spending spree at Dolce & Gabbana.
Kim's blog post was scattered with enthusiastic exclamation marks.
'Kanye surprised me for my birthday and took me to Italy!' she squealed. 'This has been the most incredible, romantic trip ever!!
'We were in Venice walking around and taking in the sights and we stopped in the Dolce & Gabbana store and I got this amazing runway dress with red bag! I had the best birthday ever!!!'
At the Angel Ball the couple joined a host of the stars at the fundraiser for Gabrielle's Angel Foundation at Cipriani Wall Street.
Reality star Angela Simmons, model Jessica Stam, and presenter Star Jones were amongst the guests.
Also on the red carpet was Beyonce's sister singer Solange and her mother Tina.
