She is known for her love of wearing leather, especially of late.
But it seems that her shiny attire got Kim Kardashian into a spot of trouble at Miami airport on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old reality star was seen grappling with her thigh-high black boots as she unzipped the footwear to remove them to go through security.
Joined by members of her family, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wore a Matrix-style outfit for her flight.
Earlier, with her young nephew Mason perched on her hip, the brunette was seen striding through the terminal in her boots and a racy leather trenchcoat, reminiscent of Carrie-Ann Moss's character Trinity in the hit science fiction film.
Kim was travelling with sister Kourtney, Mason and niece Penelope.
The clan are heading to London, possibly taking a break from filming their new reality show Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.
Kim paired her all-leather attire with a crocodile skin Hermes Birkin bag.
She wore her brunette tresses out in tumbling waves and had minimal make-up on her complexion.
The reality star played doting aunt to Mason, who looked happy as he cuddled into his aunt.
The two-year-old toddler looked cute in a pair of beige cashmere trousers, a black T-shirt and tiny black suede mocassins.
Meanwhile, Kourtney also wore leather in the form of a fitted blazer worn over a simple black tank.
She too also wore leather knee-high boots, but opted for sensible flats worn with black jeans tucked inside.
