But that did not stop Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian from wearing wide smiles as they stoically walked the red carpet at the Angel Ball in New York on Monday.
The pair were literally grinning and bearing it as they attended the star-studded studded charity event in contrasting, yet similarly racy, outfits.
Perhaps they felt obliged to attend as their late father Robert Kardashian, who worked on OJ Simpson's defence team during his infamous murder trial in 1994, was being honoured at the event.
Mother-of-three Kourtney was looking resplendent in a black dress which gave a generous view of her cleavage.
It also featured a cutaway skirt that displayed the 37-year-old's toned thighs and also gave a teasing glimpse of her seeming lack of panties when viewed from the side, though arguably enough was hidden to keep it classy.
