(Newser) – Members of the anti-Kardashian Klub can live vicariously through the woman who threw flour all over Kim last night on the red carpet. Kardashian was in Los Angeles to launch her new fragrance when she found herself covered in the baking product, but after the fire department determined the substance was just flour and nothing dangerous, she got herself cleaned up and returned to the event. The flour-dumper was detained, but later released, and Kardashian is not pressing charges, E! reports.

Sisters Khloe and Kourtney both tweeted that they wished they had been there to protect Kim, the Huffington Post adds. "I wonder if they would have dared thrown the flour at my hormonal and pregnant self!" wrote Kourtney, and Khloe added that if she had been there, "I bet you that woman wouldn't have dared tried a thing..." No word on why the woman felt the need to pelt Kim with flour, but some witnesses reportedly heard her talking about fur. As for Kim, she took it in stride, but she apparently doesn't know what the word "translucent" means: "Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that's a whole lot of translucent powder right there."
