Kim Kardashian had a close call at Monday night’s (June 1) CFDA Awards – and so did her custom Proenza Schouler dress! The pregnant mother of one’s custom look caught fire after the awards, and Pharrell Williams and his wife Helen came to Kim’s rescue.
“S/o [shoutout] to Pharrell & Helen! After the awards the feathers of my dress caught on fire and they jumped on me to get it out,” Kanye’s wife wrote on Twitter, alongside a snap of the two couples posing on the red carpet.
Kim showed no sign of the dress drama during her glamorous appearance at the prestigious fashion awards ceremony.
The reality TV star, who revealed just yesterday that she was expecting her second baby with husband Kanye West, was stunning in the detailed Proenza Schouler dress.
Featuring hundreds of eyeletes and feathers, the sheer overlay of the gown covered a bra and high-waisted black knickers that showed off Kim’s tiny hint of a baby bump.
Proenza Schouler designer Jack McCollough spoke about the dress that he designed, along with Lazaro Hernandez, for Kim.
“It’s a custom eyeleted extravaganza,” he told Style.com. “We’ve never dressed someone like that before.”
Speaking about how the collaboration came around, he added: “They kind of approached us, actually.”
Kim’s style Jenke is a friend of the design duo and he proposed a partnership. “He really wanted us to do something for her, and she was really into it.”
Kim was attending the awards ceremony at Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center to present the Media Award to Instagram founder Kevin Systrom. She was accompanied by her husband Kanye West.
