Kelly Bensimon kept it real and talked about how expensive shoes are…she tried on a pair of $7,000 shoes in Las Vegas but knew they weren’t in her budget. Her best style tip: “Take good care of your clothes and shoes.” The blush colored Azzedine Alaia ensemble she rocked on the pink carpet was 20yrs old! OH…and she shared one of her most embarrassing runway moments it involves Naomi Campbell!!

So Kelly was walking in the Vivienne Westwood show and getting changed backstage when she realized the pants were missing for her look and Naomi Campbell had hidden them! So Kelly walked the runway in a nude bodysuit and shoes (sans pants)…”Naomi is funny like that.”

Fashion pranks! WTF!!! Wish there were pics or video of this! Im sure Kelly made it work on the runway!
