It was just a normal glitzy night in Hollywood for Kim Kardashian. The red carpet, the A-list pals, the launch of a new fragrance... a standard evening in the life of Kimmy.

But then 'flour power' turned against the star when a mystery attacker threw a 'flour-bomb' straight at her, covering Kim with what, at the time, was an unknown white powder.

"That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me," Kim told reporters. "Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there," she said.

Los Angeles Fire Department officials studied the powder and determined it was only normal cooking flour.

Showing a good deal of composure, Kim walked away calmly after the incident, cleaned up and returned to the carpet about 10 minutes later to the delight of photographers, fans and reporters.

E! Entertainment's Marc Malkin speculated that the incident may have been related to Kim's wardrobe.

"Some media members said they heard her [the flour-bomber] saying something about fur," he wrote.

Kudos to Kim for staying composed under the circumstances. She's a red carpet pro nowadays. Who knew what was being thrown at the time!?
