For Shein’s event, which teamed up with the charities National Action Network and Youth Emerging Stronger, Khloe wore a glamorous face of makeup, which included a bronzed contour look and golden eyeshadow. 

Her fellow SHEIN X 100K Challenge judges, Christian Siriano, was seen walking the red carpet in an open red zebra button-down, black tank and leather pants.

He completed his look with his trademark black glasses, a silver necklace and matching bracelet while baring his inked arms, which included a massive octopus on his right arm. 

When Khloe first announced her involvement with Shein in August, she was dragged for partnering up with the brand.

It has been known to rip off smaller designers, and also fits the general ‘unethical’ mold of fast fashion, due to its environmental impacts. The site adds nearly 1,000 new pieces to their site daily with a price point of about $10.

‘Is this a joke??? After shein knocks off small designers,’ read one comment.

‘Shein is one of the most unethical fast fashion brands,’ wrote another user, while another comment read: ‘Fast fashion is bad for the environment – not cute.’

Another pointed out the irony of the brand championing a small designer challenge. ‘Lmaooooo Shein supporting small designers?! All they do is rip of small independent designers to make fast fashion tat.’

On Khloe’s most recent post one person wrote ‘not this brand collab the bar has never been lower.’

A Shein representative told Page Six Style: ‘Shein takes these issues very seriously and respects the intellectual property rights of artists and designers. We have policies and procedures in place to monitor and swiftly rectify any issues.’

The statement continued to say that the challenge was ‘developed to specifically support small independent talents and give them opportunity to grow their revenue streams, gain exposure, and tap a massive Gen Z audience across the globe.’

Speaking on behalf of the judges it was said that all of them ‘support emerging, small and independent designers.’

Later in the evening, Saweetie, 28, took the stage sporting a baby blue bra and matching tweed jacket and skirt with a diamond necklace.

Roach and Siriano also faced criticism for their involvement in the project.

Siriano said he would be ‘deleting negative comments’ while Roach wrote: ‘My Tribe please just watch this when it airs and you will see why I choose to do this!!! I promise you will be proud of me.’

As Roach — who dresses the likes of Zendaya — continued to promote the show on his own Instagram, he also faced more criticism.
