Reality TV star Kim Kardashian celebrated the New Year at Tao at The Venetian and surprised fans with a preview of her new untitled song. Kim arrived on the red carpet in a silver, hand-beaded, asymmetric draped dress custom made by Marc Bouwer and Christian Louboutin heels.

Our friends over at the Real Estalker wrote about Kardashian’s listing a little less than two weeks ago, and we wanted to piggyback on that before it gets too late. Interestingly, we actually were the first of all celebrity real estate gossips to write about the existence of Kardashian’s condo, in our inaugural post in our popular “Where in the world is?” series, back on December 16, 2007. You can see that post here.

Although listing information calls the condo West Hollywood, we actually consider the neighborhood *next to* West Hollywood. But, let’s not quibble about that; let’s instead talk about the unit itself.

Records show that Kardashian paid $850,000 in 2005 — just a year after the 23-unit, Mediterranean-style building was erected — to purchase the unit from a builder. Kim’s second-floor unit has three bedrooms and two and a half baths, according to public records and listing information. It’s in “one of the trendiest buildings in West Hollywood,” according to listing information (and yes, we’d definitely agree with the Real Estalker that that statement is a stretch — by a lot!), and has a “massive walk in closet” in the “luxurious master suite,” according to listing information. Check out Your Mama’s post over at the Real Estalker for a thorough (and accurate) deconstruction of Kardashian’s interior design.

Pay no attention to listing information that says the unit measures 1,750 square feet; they’re rounding up. Public records say it’s 1,720 square feet.

Where is Kim off to? A great clue can be found in our December 2007 post, where we predicted that “if Kim’s career takes off, expect to see her trade up from this condo unit to a gated single-family dwelling somewhere.” We stand by that prediction. Stay tuned.

Kim’s evening started with dinner at Tao, where she enjoyed Chilean sea bass and other signature dishes. After dinner, she indulged in Tao’s fortune cookie that promised her a future of happiness, love and success. Her brother Rob Kardashian, Brittny Gastineau, video director Hype Williams and other friends helped Kim ring in the New Year at Tao after dinner.

She arrived at the nightclub with mic in hand and told the screaming crowd, “I did my 30th birthday here a couple months ago. I am happy to be back! Later tonight, I have a surprise for you!” She then made a toast to her friends, “to a great and amazing New Year ahead, I love you guys!”

The party included dancing and laughing with close friends. Kim said her resolutions are to spend more time with family and have more me time. “I also want to step it up in the gym. I have been doing so well in 2010 being dedicated to health and fitness. I want to keep it up. Actually, it’s a life resolution for me.

“Our entire family made a resolution to each other to get out of our comfort zone and push the envelope and be open to all challenges -- my sisters and I have a new announcement coming up.”

As 2010 ended, Kim led Tao into the final countdown from the stage. As midnight struck, balloons and confetti fell from the ceiling as the crowd cheered, “Happy New Year!” Kim finished the countdown with “Let’s party, Vegas!”

Later in the evening, she moved to the dance floor to reveal her surprise. The DJ played her new untitled song, and Tao guests were the first to hear the new track. She sang along as partygoers danced to her new song, and Hype shot club scenes for Kim’s music video. Thanks to Denise Truscello of WireImage for her photo gallery.

Kim ended her night around 2 a.m. and returned to the Piazza Suite at The Venetian for a slumber party with her closest friends. She summed up, “The Venetian is my favorite place to stay. They take such good care of me -- it is like my second home.”
