Kim Kardashian West had a minor wardrobe malfunction at the Wall Street Journal Magazine’s 2021 Innovator Awards in New York City.
On Monday, the 41-year-old mogul was honored as an innovator of brands for her work on SKIMS. Kardashian West attended the awards show in a leather dress and gloves from the upcoming SKIMS x Fendi collection, which she developed in collaboration with Fendi’s artistic director, Kim Jones. She paired the neutral look with Tiffany & Co. jewelry and snake-print boots.
When she got on stage, she told the audience her dress had unzipped and exposed the SKIMS shapewear she had on underneath, as People reported. Luckily, Jones was by her side to help her zip the dress back up.
“Thank you to Kim Jones because I just had a little fashion emergency,” Kardashian West said. “Thank god I had SKIMS on, or this would have been a very different kind of show tonight.”
WSJ. Magazine reported that Fendi x SKIMS will be an “upscale ready-to-wear and shapewear” collection that is set to go on sale on November 9. It will include $1,100 leggings, a $2,950 puffer jacket, and a $4,200 dress.
Kardashian West told the magazine that she was very involved with developing the capsule collection, and even served as a fit model.
“I really like to be a fit model … I need to feel it,” Kardashian West said. “I probably do so much more work than people assume, that might not even be necessary at this point. But I do it.”
Representatives for Kardashian West and Jones did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
