Later on in the evening, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star fancied an outfit change and dipped into her overflowing designer wardrobe - but what she emerged in shocked the whole of New York!
WARNING: The next few snaps contain a hint (OK, a lot) of nipple. If you're easily offended, look away now.
Never one to blend into the crowd, mum-of-two Kimmy proved her style icon status (yeah, we went there!) by fishing out this traffic-stopping, metallic midi dress, and it wasn't the dazzling finish or thigh-skimming hemline that garnered the most attention, but the top half which completely exposed her boobs.
Confident Kim had absolutely no qualms about flashing her whole chest to the paparazzi who snapped away, and as she made her way into a blacked out car to catch husband Kanye West in concert, she also gave a number of passersby a good glimpse, too.
As if the dress wasn't jaw-dropping enough, Kim - who wore her locks in dishevelled waves - teamed the totally see-through number with a pair of slouchy foil-effect boots that glimmered as she sashayed down the steps of her swanky hotel.
Can someone pass us a paper bag? We're hyperventilating over here!
She gave her audience (which included a handful of young children - eek!) a nonchalant wave before strutting away with a bodyguard in tow.
Even though we won't be forgetting it for a while, this isn't the only one of Kim's outfits that has caused a storm lately, as she and three-year-old daughter North West wore co-ordinating sequin-splashed dresses to Kanye's Madison Square Garden gig on Monday (5 September) and the level of cute was almost too much to handle.
But can she top both looks? It's only the middle of the week - watch this space!
