Kim Kardashian West: Pharrell 'saved my life'

Kim Kardashian West has thanked Pharrell Williams for saving her life.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was left in a tricky situation when the feathers on her gown caught fire after the CFDA Fashion Awards last night (01.06.15).

Taking to Instagram, alongside a picture of her, husband Kanye West, Pharrell and his wife Helen Lasichanh, Kim wrote: "Shout out to Pharrell & Helen who saved my life last night! LOL After the awards at dinner the feathers of my dress caught on fire from a candle & they jumped on me to get it out! #WereOn (sic)"

During the ceremony, Kanye was on hand to pass the award for fashion icon to the 'Happy' hitmaker.

Giving Pharrell an introduction, the 'Bound 2' rapper said: "It is very difficult to break perception. Fashion had to be the hardest high school I ever entered. At least I had a big brother [Pharrell, who] talked me through it and kept me going ... my style idol."

In his acceptance speech, the 42-year-old record producer thanked a number of his own fashion icons before adding, "I'm not a style icon. I'm just inspired. And I'm OK with that."
