Police had to force the Kardashian’s to shut down their New York Dash store last night after a crowd of over excited fans started to cause problems.
Kim Kardashian was hosting an event at the family’s clothing boutique in the SoHo area of Manhattan, for Fashion’s Night Out and had invited Jersey Shore’s resident DJ Pauly D to spin track for the party.
But while the party continued in a civilised manor inside, the crowd outside became restless, all vying for a sneak peek of the reality stars.
When Pauly D went to leave, the fans surged forward and some over eager followers leapt over barriers to get up close with the star.
Police then initiated crowd control procedures and insisted that the Kardashian’s close down the store and turn off all the lights sending the employees home before leaving themselves.
Thousands of screaming fans were left just standing in the street in front of the store.
Earlier in the evening Kim arrived at the store and braved her way through the screaming crowds, even stopping to greet fans and take pictures.
She looked slim and stunning in a vibrant bright yellow dress which she paired with grey stilettos for the fun event which celebrates fashion with extended shopping hours and parties hosted at several cities throughout the world.
Kim has been enjoying her time in New York after jetting there last week following her honeymoon.
Along with sister Kourtney she has been filming the new season of their Keeping Up With The Kardashian spin-off.
Contrary to popular opinion, brunette beauty Kim Kardashian is not one of those celebutantes who is famous simply for being famous. Just consider her current activities. For starters, the reality TV star and sisters Kourtney and Khloe opened the third branch of their designer clothing boutique, DASH NYC, in SoHo, in October. “My sisters and I wanted to expand our brand,” she explains. “What better place than New York City, the fashion capital?” Soon, she’ll launch her second fragrance, as well as a line of swimwear, lingerie, ready-to-wear and denim. Early next year, her newest reality TV show, Kourtney & Kim Take New York (E! Entertainment Television), will have its premiere. It follows the tremendous success of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (2007-2010), and the sexy siblings can currently be spotted shooting on location all around the city.
“Fans can expect to see me living a single life in a new city,” she promises. “Kourtney and me as power businesswomen, with the same fun and craziness as always. We’ve done lots of things that we never did before, like seeing the Statue of Liberty and going to the Empire State Building.” She’s already given sneak peeks to more than 4 million Twitter followers (“We took over our local pizza joint!! Gotta love some NY pizza!”) and 6 million monthly visitors to her website (“Of course I had to stop by Jacob & Company and see Jacob the Jeweler while I’m here in NYC! His jewelry is so classic NYC! I had a lot of fun trying on some of the amazing watches and rings. Stunning!”)
“I am a workaholic and an entrepreneur … I find it funny when people just see me as being one of those rich kids.
“I am a workaholic and an entrepreneur. ‘Ambitious’ is my middle name,” Kardashian declares. A one-woman marketing brand, she recently launched the Kardashian Kard for MasterCard; lent her name to weight-loss supplements, Balenciaga handbags and Perfect Skin skincare products; and designed a line of Armenian-inspired jewelry. Charities? As an ambassador to Dream Foundation, she grants wishes to terminally ill adults.
“I find it funny when people just see me as being one of those rich kids … There’s more to me than that,” she insists. “I Googled myself and read that I killed a dog with my high heel and that I buried it. You just have to have a sense of humor.” Is there anything about her she’d really like people to know? “That I am extremely humble and down to earth.”
