Kim Kardashian had to be sewn into a skin-tight leather dress on Wednesday (06Jun12) after the garment split ahead of a TV appearance in Los Angeles.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians regular was due to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with her sisters Khloe and Kourtney, and suffered the embarrassing mishap just moments before heading onto the set.
The model posted an image of the wardrobe malfunction on her Twitter.com page, showing how a zip at the back of the dress had popped open, tearing the fabric.
She wrote, "About to do Jimmy Kimmel & my whole dress rips! Help!!! Time to sew me in... praying this works!... Getting my dress sewn up! I think we can make it work..."
After some help from a needle and thread-bearing assistant, the smiling star dashed into the studio and took her place on the chat show sofa.
