10. Kim Kardashian In Kaufman Franco, 2011
Kim Kardashian began dating rapper and longtime friend Kanye West in 2012, but she was a regular on the Grammys red carpet way before then. In 2011 she made a splash at the red carpet wearing a bronzed Kaufman Franco dress. But the daring gown came with its fair share of struggles.

"I had the biggest fashion emergency," Kardashian told Seacrest during E!'s red carpet broadcast. "I took it to another tailor and they tailored it to where my whole butt wouldn't fit in it. I was freaking out and said that if I didn't have a dress, I wouldn't go."

Luckily the designer duo of Kaufman Franco swooped in to the rescue. "The designers were amazing and they came in and met me and redid the whole thing," Kardashian said. She then paired the glittering gold dress with a chunky Lorraine Schwartz snake bracelet that had some definite Bulgari flair.

While celebrities usually get dresses loaned to them by designers, West was an up-and-coming name at the time and had to purchase her gown retail. But years later, the designers still remembered the emergency alteration. "We’ve never actually dressed Kim,” Isaac Franco told The New York Postwhen asked about their working relationship in 2014. 

"But one time, she bought something retail and called because she needed some help with it,” said Ken Kaufman. “We had to do a crazy alteration.”

When asked where that alteration was, the designers decided to plead the fifth. “Stop it right now,” said Kaufman. “You know exactly where it was!”
