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?

I real wardrobe malfunction is when your baby spits up that sour milk all over your outfit just before you leave the house. She needs to stop worrying about what she looks like and what to wear, and take an interest in her daughter. Geez, play with the girl, take her out for walks, to baby functions, be a MOM already. sheesh

Why of all the sisters she has she is the only one with enormous ass?

Dejavu all over again on

Her butt cannot be real. It just….can’t.

She shoves that fake butt of hers into clothes 3 sizes too small all the time! Why anyone would choose to disfigure themselves that way I will never understand.

The least of her worries and makes a huge deal out of it. Has nothing in her closet, nothing at all! LOL. Is the wearing normal clothes or are they second skin already? Leaves nothing to the imagination. I love sexy women but this type, no thanks. A mom and grown woman, she needs to dress appropriately. She can still be sexy without doing what she does. Poor thing! The need for her to even show the world on IG makes her more of a show off and/or insecure.

What the heck happen to her lips and what the H*ll is growing out of her lower back???!!!

Yawn, Kim grasping for attention … what’s new? She looks like a stuffed sausage.

If she wore clothes that actually fit her, it wouldn’t be an issue..and no, none of us can relate….

Lana on

Can’t she wear an outfit that doesn’t show her big a$$ and her boobs hanging out??? Good grief….

NIca on

Nothing else to wear…give me a flippin’ break! I’m not sure if,at any point she was ever likable as a person, but I can say with a fair amount of certainty that she now has to be one of the most unlikable (and irritating) people on earth – only to be out-shined by criminals of all sorts and Kanye West.
