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?

Why does she think her huge arse is attractive in skin-tight clothing? With all of her money, can’t she buy something that fits? And, why all the ass-first selfies? smh

How can she have a “wardrobe malfunction???” Shouldn’t she already be getting used to having the world seeing her in the nude??? After all, isn’t that how she and her family started to become famous??? Because she’s a tramp.

Do they do ass reductions? Because she is in DIRE need of one. I mean I have a big booty, but I couldn’t walk around balancing a cup on it. She took “Baby’s Got Back” to heart.

Just another reason to take a picture of herself. So you are telling me EVERYTHING she has was packed in a suitcase. Can we please quit paying attention to her and yes I am asking myself why I even read this article

In the Instagram pic where she’s wearing the shorter skirt, you can see at least 8 coats and 5 pairs of shoes in the background. And she seriously wants people to believe she only had one outfit ready for the show?

Kim K always looks so drugged out, like she is having an out of body experience.

I would have grabbed a cami for underneath the sweater, but other than that, the outfit IS cute. :)
