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?

So sad what she’s done to her lips. What happened to the real Kim Kardashian? I won’t be surprised if she’s now addicted to plastic surgery. She doesn’t look real.
Kim, I know you’re probably convinced that you shouldn’t read these comments, but believe me, maybe if you read these comments you’ll stop getting plastic surgeries or you’ll ended hiding from the world like Meg Ryan did.

Whatever. She just wanted to post another selfie of her body and was trying to find a good excuse for it.

I suppose this is just another KIM lie she seems to have a talent for doing things like that.

Thats a giant ass

Lo on

Could her clothes be any tighter?? No wonder she keeps having wardrobe malfunctions! You could see her cellulite right below her butt on the side shot! Not flattering! She went down hill since getting with Kanye the clown

I’d love to know why her ghetto thug boyfriend hasn’t been arrested since there are witnesses to him beating up that guy. Oh right, money talks, celebs walk. That’s the LA way.

the short skirt is only slightly better (sorry Kim but your ass doesn’t always need to be so blatantly on can’t-possibly-miss-it-even-if-you-try display in too form fitting skirts/dresses) than the top. it shocks me that she’d walk out of her home dressed so poorly. she complains about being followed not being left alone by paparazzi but yet the way she dresses only screams “look at me! look at me!”.

LOL @ the jealous haters on here! You idiots make me LAUGH! As for Kimmy’s wardrobe issue, it happens to the best of us. She’s always beautiful!

Chris on

I would have taken it off and found something else – no big deal. But Kim has to squeeze into it for a photo of herself to show off – as if we havent’ seen every square inch of her ASS already. Geez … had to comment.

JJ on

Too fat for most of her clothes.
