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?
