TMZ is reporting that Kardashian was at a West Hollywood event promoting her new fragrance line when an unnamed assailant tossed the powder on her. The woman has since been detained by the police

The situation was serious enough that the fire department showed up to examine it. Luckily it turned out that the material was nothing more than baking flour.

Kardashian dusted herself off and returned to the event.
