Cops Shut Down Kim Kardashian's Store During Fashion's Night Out

Last night was Fashion's Night Out in New York City, which means there were huge crowds of people in stores they could go to any other night of the year and random celebrities doing random things. Sarah Jessica Parker signed Manolos. Lea Michele autographed T-shirts at Saks. Justin Bieber was at D&G and said he was interested in doing a fashion line someday, of course, that's what they all say.

But that dangerous crush of human bodies was a security nightmare: People tried to jump barricades when Pauly D left the building, and the NYPD shut down the event, making the Kardashians vacate the store and turn out the lights so that the crowd would disperse.
