Kim Kardashian Suffers Last-Minute Dress Disaster -- and Strangely, We Relate to Her On This One

01/17/2014 at 11:17 AM ET

Have you ever had a dress in mind for a big event, only to try it on the morning of and discover that perhaps it fit a smidge better before you spent the last month eating your feelings/drinking all the eggnog in sight/pretending that sitting on your couch is one extremely long squat? Have you then experienced the panic that comes with trying to find a suitable outfit at the last minute?

Amazingly, that happens to people with closets 27 times the size of ours. Just ask Kim Kardashian. Not long before she was due to go on Ellen, the reality star posted a photo of herself in an ivory draped top and matching long skirt, with the caption “OMG my dress for Ellen just broke!!! I have to leave in 5mins…I need help! Should I wear this???”

In the end, she went with a shorter skirt with the same (slightly risqué for daytime TV) top. And of course, host Ellen DeGeneres asked her about the last-minute malfunction.

“I get this dress tailored and it completely did not fit. It was so bad,” Kardashian said. “I am all packed to go to Paris, and I had nothing, I just kind of put it together.” When Ellen asked how on earth she didn’t have a backup (again, that closet), Kardashian said “It’s a good lesson for next time. I had a fitting last night, so they were tailoring it today, so I thought, ‘I’m good, I’ll just put it on.’ Something told me an hour before, ‘Just try it on.’ I tried it on, and it completely didn’t fit. Nothing that could have been fixed.”

Certainly not nuclear disarmament-level crisis, but it’s nice to know that even Kardashians have the same wardrobe drama the rest of us have. Do you believe she couldn’t find a thing to wear? What do you think of the final outfit?

All of her clothes are always too small. Why does she care now?

I totally thought the wardrobe malfunction was that the top showed her bra!! Only to find out, she wasn’t talking about that shirt at all lol
Kim, please put your bra away. You are a mommy now; only Kanye needs to see that.

She has the fattest a** I’ve ever seen. Yuck.

celebsarah on

I can’t tell if those are photos of her clothes fitting or not fitting. Sad.

Tracy on

She would look so much better if everything wasn’t skin-tight on her. She CAN dress well, but for some reason, chooses not to.

Susan on

I’ve never seen her in properly fitting clothes so, why worry about it now?
