Flexible Kim Kardashian forced to hoist her trousers up after they threaten to dive south



Wardrobe malfunction: Kim Kardashian hoists her trousers up as she makes her way through LAX security

With a body like Kim Kardashian, even the most simple of tasks can turn into quite the display.

And the reality star was seen going through airport security seeming to have a little trouser trouble.

As she took off her shoes to put through the X-ray machines - receiving no special treatment as she queued up with the rest of the passengers - her waistline was in jeopardy of dipping south.

Dolled up to the nines ahead of her latest globetrotting venture, Kim's hair was wrapped up in a ballet bun as her face was layered with make-up.

She looked rather flexible as she spied a makeshift platform to lean on and untie her sneaker.

Earlier in the day, Kim was seen stepping out in a pair of Kanye West design Nike Air Yeezys.

The 31-year-old swapped her typical sky-high stilettos for the sought-after sneakers by her beau.

Heading to a studio in Hollywood, Kim was unusually dressed down in black fitted pants and a snug black top covered by a denim jacket.

Ducking down from the cameras, she appeared to be make-up free, before obviously dolling up for her flight.

The Air Yeezy was released in stores across the US and several other countries on June 9, to shoppers who'd camped outside stores for up to a week.

And the trainers - which are on sale now at a cost of $245 - are like gold dust.

Inspired by basketball shoes from the late Eighties, the shoes were fetching pre-release prices between $6,000 and $89,000 on eBay.

Being Kanye's girlfriend clearly has its perks, as Kim tweeted a photo of the couple wearing matching Air Yeezys on June 12. 'His & Hers!' she wrote, accompanied by a photo of the pair's feet.

Kim, who said on her Twitter feed today she is heading to Atlanta, is meanwhile embroiled in divorce proceedings with estranged husband Kris Humphries.

The basketball star, who reportedly have his deposition on Monday, claims Kim defrauded him for TV ratings and publicity.

The former couple married in August but split after only 72 days.
