Kim Kardashian's feathering her nest, or at least her baby bump.

The reality star stepped out Wednesday in West Hollywood wearing a Prabal Gurung feathery dress for the Topshop Topman L.A. opening party.

And today, her divorce case returned to a court, where some forward progress was made.

Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney decided that a trial date should be set and that Kardashian's estranged husband, Kris Humphries, has had adequate time to prepare, reports AP.

Moloney's ruling Friday in Los Angeles came after months of wrangling between lawyers for when a trial can be set to end the 2011 marriage.

Humphries wants an annulment, while Kardashian is seeking a divorce. Kim has said she'd like to not be married to the NBA star when her baby with Kanye West arrives this summer.

Humphries' attorney had been seeking additional time to obtain information about Kardashian's reality shows, so bolster his claim that the couple's marriage was based on fraud.

The case will now move to another judge to set a trial date, which Moloney says may be in four to six weeks.

Adding to all the drama is the fact that Humphries' lawyer, Marshall Waller, wants off the job. He says irreconcilable differences have arisen between him and Humphries -- divorce! - and he should be allowed to leave the case.

He filed paperwork Thursday, and if he's allowed to leave, his exit could delay a judge's decision on a trial date.
