Thank goodness she was wearing Skims underneath her Skims!

Kim Kardashian declared “We’re having a fashion emergency,” when she stood up to head to the stage at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday night to receive  WSJ. Magazine’s 2021 Brand Innovator honor.

The reality star was wearing a curve-hugging leather dress from her forthcoming Skims line with Fendi. Still a zipper unfasten in the back — from the bottom of the dress upwards — almost showing her famous posterior to the room as she stood up, sources said.

Fortunately, Kardashian was seated close to her Fendi associate, fashion designer Kim Jones, who moved into action to zip her up.

Secret agents declared that Kardashian’s  table-mate Demi Moore was as well ready to jump into the fashion fray and assist get the zipper zipped up.

“I’d like to thank Kim Jones, because I just had a little fashion emergency,”

Kardashian said after she mount the stage.

“Thank god I had Skims under — because this would’ve been a different kind of show tonight.”

Kardashian, 41, had been seated at a table with other honorees, as well as Lil Nas X, Lewis Hamilton and Jones.

The KKW Beauty founder further told the crowd that prior to launching of her successful Skims shape-wear line, she wasn’t adequately discerning about the products she pitched.


“I just remember 15 years ago when I was starting my career, I could’ve never dreamed that I would have been getting an Innovator award for brands,”

she said. “I mean back in the day, I would’ve been the face of any brand that asked me. I did, like, cupcakes to weight loss pills all at the same time.

“I would do all of that and then wear shape-wear on top — and it’s all contradictory,” she joked.

She also said that before she created her own line she’d have to turn to mixing her shape-wear with “coffee bags and tea bags” to swap the color to match her skin tone.


“I’d have to dye them — because they only made one shade of nude that was really pale, and then black, and that was it,”

she justified her action.

“So I wanted something in between, and I would dye them with teabags, and I thought, ‘If I can’t find my shade, how will my friends? How will my daughter?’ It just seemed insane to me that other options weren’t available. So I always like to come up with solutions.”

The former “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star explained she’s “grateful” for her shape-wear line because she no longer has

“to do cupcakes brands and weight loss pills anymore.”
