Kim Kardashian suffered a fashion mishap, when her skin-tight leather dress burst open at the back, just minutes before she was to go live on TV.
The 31-year-old socialite, had to be frantically sewn back into her sheer bodycon leather dress before she appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show in the US, the Sun reported.
Though the audiences were unaware of the fashion disaster that had happened just moments before, her 14 million Twitter followers were alerted when the reality star posted a picture of the mishap and a stage hand stitching her back up.
As the dress gave way at the back, Kim tweeted, "About to do Jimmy Kimmel and my whole dress rips! Help!!! Time to sew me in...praying this works!"
Minutes later she sent an Instagram picture of a fashion assistant frantically trying to put the dress back together, with the message "Getting my dress sewn up! I think we can make it work..."
Kardashian was appearing on the chat show with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe in Los Angeles.
In spite of the near fashion disaster she appeared stylish and unfazed, as she was welcomed on stage with her sisters.
She paired the stylish leather dress with diamond earrings and Christian Louboutin high heels with scarlett-red soles.
