Kim Kardashian had a wardrobe malfunction as she left the Met Gala

Kim Kardashian, 42, made a jaw-dropping appearance at Monday’s Met Gala in a custom Schiaparelli gown featuring a beige corset and strings of 50,000 real freshwater pearls draping over her legs and chest.

During red carpet interviews, the Skims founder gushed over the garment explaining she wanted to be “dripping in pearls” to honour the night’s theme, a tribute to the late Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld.

While the look was already borderline risqué as she strutted the red carpet, Kim left the event literally clutching her pearls.

The bottom half of her dress had seemingly dismantled during the evening with strings of pearls flying off and scattering across the ground as she made a less-than-glamorous exit.

The socialite was spotted by the paparazzi on her way back to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and took the blunder in stride, flashing a quick smile as she desperately clung onto the remaining pearls still attached to the outfit.

While speaking on the red carpet earlier in the evening, Kim admitted the pearls had already proved problematic during the car ride over, but her nine-year-old daughter North had helped to salvage the situation.

She revealed to Vogue: “Some popped on the way, and I told my daughter to grab them all.

“They’re real pearls, and she was putting them in her purse.”

Kim explained despite it all, the pearls were a must-have for her this year: “I thought, what is more Karl?

“The iconic Chanel pearls is what I always thought of, so we wanted to just be dripping in pearls.”

After North saved the day, she was left waiting in the car with a purse of pearls as her mum and aunts, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, walked the red carpet.

Due to age restrictions at the event the nine-year-old was barred from attending but Kim made sure to give her daughter a shout-out in her livestreamed interviews.

27-year-old Kendall also risked a potential wardrobe malfunction of her own as she appeared in a black Marc Jacobs bodysuit covered in sequins.

In a leggy display, Kendall opted out of wearing trousers for the evening, instead pairing the outfit with knee-high platform boots.
