And the life saver award of the night goes to Pharrell Williams and his wife, Helen.

Following Monday evening’s Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, the Williams’ came to Kim Kardashian’s rescue after her dress went up in flames.

“Shout out to Pharrell & Helen who saved my life last night,” Kim wrote on Instagram. “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.”

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
