Kim on the red carpet
40 of Kim Kardashian's hottest looks!
New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas is finally here and what better place to ring in 2012 than the city that never sleeps?

With the year’s hottest (and highest paid) celebrity appearances ranging from the Kardashians, Snooki, and Fergie, the city of sin has created a New Years bash that has everyone talking.

Kim Kardashian is making headlines yet again, and this time, it is all about the Benjamin’s! The Queen of publicity made a $600,000 multi-event deal with TAO Las Vegas, which includes an NYE appearance.

That’s right, Kim will be paid more than half a million dollars to sit in VIP a few hours, sip top shelf champaign, raise a toast, and call it a night!

Kim Kardashian was ranked the highest paid celebrity for an NYE appearance, outscoring diva star Mariah Carey. Management at Tao believes Kim will attract a huge crowd this year, even with tickets costing $225 a person. Would you pay that much to bring in the new year with Kim? Did Tao spend too much or is Kim Kardashian worth EVERY penny?
