Backstage at TIME 100: Kim Kardashian chats with Don Lemon, Salma Hayek, Gayle King and Padma Lakshmi before being squashed to the carpet
Kim Kardashian was the best of the bunch at the TIME 100 event held at Lincoln Center in New York City on Wednesday.
Many stars got close to the 42-year-old reality TV icon when she stunned in a silky slip dress with diamond necklaces and a mother of pearl purse as she wore her black hair down.
She was seen chatting with divorced CNN personality Don Lemon, movie star Salma Hayek, talk show host Gayle King, and model-turned-chef Padma Lakshmi.
But the event seemed a little stressful for the mother of four from Calabasas, California.
At one point, SKIMS gets caught pressuring the red carpet as microphones are pushed at her but she’s smiling through it.

CNN fired longtime host Lemon Monday after his short and disastrous run as a morning show host, just over two months after he apologized for on-air comments about Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley after her term ended.
This move quickly turned bad. While CNN Chairman and CEO Chris Licht announced after Lemon co-hosted the show Monday that they had “parted,” Lemon called it a firing and said it came as a surprise to him.
“After 17 years at CNN, I would have thought someone in management would have the decency to tell me directly,” Lemon said. CNN said Lemon was given the opportunity to meet with management but issued a statement on Twitter instead.
Another sister: Kim was also seen spending time with Friday actress Salma Hayek. The famous star wore a blue and black lace gown as she approached Kim.

Under his leadership, the retail conglomerate PPR was transformed into the luxury fashion group Kering.
He oversees luxury brands such as Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Yves Saint Laurent.
So Salma could have been talking about working with Kim, who has represented Balenciaga in the past.
There were several members of the press around chatting away.
They also took a moment to pose for the cameras, apparently at the same height.
