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.

Fashion mishap: Kim tweeted this picture as fashion assistants stitched her back into the skintight number

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!'

'Getting my dress sewn up! I think we can make it work…'

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.
