Kardashian pelted in powder attack

Kim Kardashian was pelted with powder while she hosted an event in the US - but has laughed off her ordeal.

A woman threw powder on the reality TV star in the lobby of a West Hollywood hotel where she was hosting the launch party for her new fragrance True Reflection, police said.

"That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me," the 31-year-old told E! News.

"Like I said to my make-up artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there," she said, laughing off the entire ordeal.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said deputies were called to the unidentified hotel on North San Vicente Boulevard.

Deputy Peter Gomez said the woman who allegedly threw the powder was detained by hotel security and later released at the scene.

Mr Gomez said Kim told the deputies she did not want to press charges against the woman and a non-criminal battery report was taken.

Mr Gomez said paramedics were called to the hotel, but the star refused medical treatment.

He said Kim returned to her room, removed the powder from her hair and clothing and returned to the event.
