Kim Kardashian was flour bombed on the red carpet in West Hollywood on Thursday night, but the reality star kept her cool during the incident.
"I was just saying to my makeup artist... I did say I needed a little bit more powder...[I was] a little translucent, oh well," Kim told Access Hollywood, brushing off the incident.
Just before 8 PM, after finishing posing for the photographers at an event for her new fragrance, True Reflection, at the London Hotel off of Sunset Blvd., Kim was speaking to the house crew on the red carpet when a young woman strolled up to the reality star and dumped a bag of what appeared to be flour on Kim's head.
Not one to let a little flour stop her, after about 10 minutes, Kim went back to work, returning to chat with the media.
"I wasn't scared... I just dusted it off in the hallway. It didn't get me that bad," Kim continued. "If it got any closer on my face I'd be upset.
"That was a different experience. I wasn't expecting that. I've never experienced anything like that. I don't know why people do stuff like that," she told Access.
According to Kim, her recent relationship woes with ex Kris Humphries have caused others to lash out at times.
"[With] the whole divorce happening, it's given just a platform for haters that don't understand the situation... I don't think there are more haters or not I think everyone's just a little bit more comfortable to give their opinion, but I think all the negativity and positivity, I felt on both sides," she explained. "It has really taught me a lot about who I am and obviously I don't wish that, or anyone to feel certain things that I felt, but you grow from it and you become a better person from it hopefully."
Kris Jenner, who was also on hand on Thursday night, chimed in on the incident, telling Access,"When somebody rushes you like that, first of all it's dangerous and you're destroying property and you're trying to send a message...she wasn't invited to the party and people get really cranky whey they're not invited to the party!"
Kim's sisters also weighed in on Twitter.
"I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn't have dared tried a thing," Khloe wrote. "She handled it amazing! What a low to flour bomb someone. You care that much? Oh sorry 'don't care' I love you @KimKardashian you are a flour princess!"
Kourtney, who is pregnant with her second child, wrote, "Classy to flour bomb my sister at her charity event helping women. I wonder if they would have dared thrown the flour at my hormonal and pregnant self!"
