Kim Kardashian Played Princess Leia to Kanye West's Stormtrooper in 2008

The high profile couple has come a long way since their 2008 "Star Wars" skit, both personally and professionally.

Just how embarrassed is Kanye West by Kim Kardashian’s Twitter post this week?

The reality star/fashion designer took a little trip back in time posting an Instagram photo with the description: 'Throwback Thursday me & Yeezy 2008'.  

In the photo, Kim was dressed like Star Wars character Princess Leia and was serenaded by a puppet. Kanye was dressed like a Stormtrooper and looked on in apparent confusion.

The still was taken from a 10-minute clip meant to be part of a pilot for Kanye's puppet comedy show, Alligator Boots, which he collaborated on with hip hop star Rhymefest. The show never made it to the air. And we think we can see why.

There was a video of the clip on YouTube that has long since been removed. Sadly, this photo is all that remains of that epic moment in celebrity culture history.

As an update to modern times, West recently had Kardashian appear in a video for I Wish You Could/Cold, his joint track with rapper DJ Khaled.

And the high profile couple's red carpet heavy relationship is moving right along. Earlier this week Kanye flew his girlfriend to Venice, Italy (not California) to celebrate her 32nd birthday. They were photographed together walking in the watery city with Kim wearing a short white lace dress, sparking rumors that West may soon propose.

Kim has also opened up to British magazine Tatler about their romance, explaining how nice it is to have a boyfriend who understands her work in the fashion industry and her public image. She tried on wedding gowns for the fashon shoot and told the mag that her next wedding will be on private island with just her friends and family. 

“Being with someone I've known for so many years is comforting. He's been there through so many different stages of my life and before I was famous, so this relationship is a different thing entirely," Kim said, adding: "I can't even think about being with anyone else than the man I'm with."

All together now... Awww.
