Flour Power: Kim Kardashian bombed on red carpet, Laughs off attack

Reality vixen Kim Kardashian laughed off her recent 'flour bomb' attack on the red carpet but after mulling over the embarassing event, the starlet says she might press charges.

While attending the Dress for Success charity event and celebrating the launch of her new fragrance, True Reflection, Kim K was attacked by an alleged anti-fur activist at the London Hotel in West Hollywood last Thursday.

Taking the white powder attack all in stride, Kim told E! News, "I'm fine. You have to laugh it off! I brushed off and came right back out."

However, after having a few days to think about her attack, Kim recently told press, "I think, 'What if that was some other substance? What if that person had a dangerous weapon?' It's scary. And what's even scarier is this woman acted as if she was a part of the press, she just came out of nowhere! And so we are definitely changing things up a little bit, amping up security, taking some measures, and...I'm gonna definitely deal with it because it is not acceptable."

Immediately following the attack sisters Khloe and Kourtney defended their sibling on Twitter. Kourtney, who is pregnant with her second child with boyfriend Scott Disick, tweeted, "Classy to flour bomb my sister at her charity event helping women. I wonder if they would have dared thrown the flour at my hormonal and pregnant self!" Khloe tweeted, "I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn't have dared tried a thing."

Khloe also tweeted, "I love you @KimKardashian you are a flour princess! :) see you in the morning sister!" Adding, "She handled it amazing! What a low to flour bomb someone. You care that much? Oh sorry 'don't care'."

According to MSN, Kim was quickly ushered from the red carpet by hotel security, examined by the fire department, then headed back to the red carpet after wiping the flour from her hair and clothing.

Kardashian's attacker, described by a source as "short and Asian", was detained and eventually released by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

It's no secret Kim wears all types of fur, most recently being snapped at pal Kanye West's fashion show in Paris with a white fur vest from the rapper's high-end clothing line. Last November, PETA featured a photo of Kim and baby foxes in a billboard campaign, which read 'Kim these babies miss their mom. Is she on your back?'

According to a statement from PETA: "PETA has tried everything from polite letters to public protests, but Kim Kardashian has not been moved by the news that animals are beaten, electrocuted, and even skinned alive for real fur garments: Whoever threw that flour may reach her when our polite appeals did not."
