She's known to pour her curves into the most daring of fashions.
But Kim Kardashian may have taken her bodycon style a step too far after her dress ripped apart minutes before a television appearance on Wednesday.
The reality star, 31, had to be sewn into her skintight leather dress before she could join sisters Khloe and Kourtney on the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Los Angeles.Â

The petite star was photographed on her way to the studio with sister Khloe, dressed in a clingy long-sleeved leather number that left little to the imagination, even with so little skin showing.
She took to Twitter to share her excitement about appearing on the late night show, writing: 'Can't wait to chat with Jimmy Kimmel tonight with my sisters @KourtneyKardash and @KhloeKardash! Tune in tonight at 12am PST'.
But soon after, a worrying series of tweets followed, accompanied by a picture of the star being stitched and stuffed back into the fabric after it had split.
She wrote: 'About to do Jimmy Kimmel & my whole dress rips! Help!!! Time to sew me in...praying this works!'

Not to be outdone by a near fashion-disaster, Kim eventually made her way to the set, looking pulled together as ever - the audience none the wiser.
Kim paired the dress with towering leopard Christian Louboutin pumps, the soles of which perfectly matched her red nail polish, and showcased a dazzling set of diamond earrings with her raven hair pulled back into a sleek ponytail.
The style mishap follows another embarrassing fashion don't for Kim.
She was photographed on Sunday in another bodycon dress so sheer it revealed the control pants underneath meant to conceal her assets.
