Kim Kardashian: 'Caitlyn gave me three days to find her ESPY dress'

Kim Kardashian stopped Caitlyn Jenner over-accessorising at the ESPY Awards.

Kim Kardashian stepped in to help Caitlyn Jenner look flawless at the ESPY Awards.

The 66-year-old reality star looked stunning at the recent awards ceremony in a white minidress with a cape back. She had some help getting ready for the occasion, courtesy of her stepdaughter Kim, who used her extensive styling knowledge to ensure Caitlyn looked red carpet worthy.

But Caitlyn didn't give Kim much time to find her ensemble - three days, in fact.

"She wanted advice on what to wear,” Kim told People. "She gave me three days and said, ‘Can you get me something?’ I looked online. I shopped all over."

Finding a dress long enough for 6ft 1in Caitlyn was tough, so Kim called in a favour from her designer pal Michael Costello. The American designer formerly appeared on TV show Project Runway, and was more than happy to provide a few options for Caitlyn.

"He has a studio in L.A," Kim said of Michael. "So he whipped up five things in two seconds. I sent her measurements. And she wore this white number."

Kim was thrilled when Caitlyn opted for the simple and chic white gown, which she teamed with earrings, a sparkling clutch bag and metallic sandals. However, Kim admits that choosing accessories for the finished look caused a few issues.

"She wanted to accessorise it super crazy. I had to step in. I didn’t approve the shoes," she laughed. "We’ve got to get Caitlyn some new shoes. It’s hard out there."

Caitlyn certainly has her choice of people to talk to about clothing, given that her stepdaughters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are world-famous fashionistas and daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner are taking the fashion and beauty worlds by storm.

While Caitlyn's gender transition from Bruce in 2015 may have been hard for the family to accept first of all, Kim admits she has now bonded with her over a shared love of fashion.

“Really everything (looks good on her)," she said. "She’s super slim. She definitely likes to be age appropriate. But then she’ll like really short things. She seems to love clothes.”
