Kim Kardashian West is on fire, literally. At Monday night’s 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards, the feathers on her dress caught fire and threatened to injure her. Luckily, the pregnant reality TV star was rescued by Pharrell and his wife Helen Lasichanh. Kim tweeted a shout-out to the pair Tuesday:

Kim presented the Media Award to Instagram founder Kevin Systrom during the 2015 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards. The event took place in New York City and after the awards show, Kim and the rest of the presenters, awardees and guests proceeded to dinner. While there, Kim explained that the feathers on her dress caught the flame of a candle, causing them to ignite.
Luckily for the expectant mom, singer Pharrell and his wife were nearby and helped her put out the flames. Kim was wearing a black sheer dress designed by Jack and Lazaro for Proenza Schouler. The dress had black and white circular embellishments with eyelet cutouts. The shoulders were accentuated with black feathers that caught fire.
Although Kim’s dress covered her up with long sleeves and a long hemline, it was very sheer and her black undergarments could clearly be seen through the fabric. The pregnant star isn’t shy about showing off her body, which still isn’t showing a visible baby bump.
E! Online has revealed that Kim’s due date will be in December. This would mean that she is three months along and isn’t likely to show for a few more weeks.
Kim was accompanied by her husband Kanye West during the event and it was unclear where he was when her dress caught fire.
