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?

The dress fits….it’s her fat A$$ that is the problem…….

Stephanie on

‘…and it completely didn’t fit..’ seems to be a theme of her life. I have yet to see this person in clothes that DO fit. Get some courage to wear clothes that are ACTUALLY your size… then you will be ‘… just like everybody else…’ She is such a joke…

L on

GAG ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If anyone believes this they are as dumb as she is…….which isnt saying much. Go to Paris & please never come back!!!

Tina on

Oh, please. Just another ploy to get us to look at her again. Couldn’t find anything else to wear 5 mins before Ellen? Really? I find it hard to believe that she packed EVERYTHING she owns in her suitcase. And I’m starting to lose respect for Ellen for having Kardashian as a guest; playing into the whole farce of Kim being an actual celebrity.

Cherrie on

Not sure what the issue is…..her boobs are always hanging out, and her pants/skirts/dresses are always too tight. Nothing new about ANY of this……………….

Yep, such a big tragedy not to finda apair of jeans and top and a jacket to go on a casual shoe as Ellen’s! i can imagine she packed all her wardrop for Paris.
Such a big joke these KK women are!

Her body is a bit odd looking with that massive butt of hers. Her face used to be pretty but she went too far with whatever it is she’s doing to it. If she’d just wear clothes that fit her she might actually look somewhat presentable.

altamadum on

that is not attractive at all. imagine carrying that much extra butt weight around

Snowflake on

Why are her people not talking her out of the Botox and fillers?!?

Tigs on

Ugh, she always looks lilke she is squeezed into her clothes. How uncomfortable she must feel just to try to look sexy.
