The Kardashians Create a Frenzy in the Big Apple

OMG Aline

Forget Bieber Fever. In case you haven't noticed, a Kardashian craze is sweeping the nation -- and that was definitely made evident at the grand opening celebration for their new Dash boutique in the Big Apple on Wednesday night. Yes, New Yorkers, brace yourselves ... the reality stars are bringing their sense of style to the fashion capital of the world!

Although Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe looked cool, calm, and collected while striking poses in chic black ensembles at the red carpet soiree, there were hundreds of fans that couldn't get past the velvet rope -- and according to the New York Daily News, many of them were rather unruly, trying desperately to catch a glimpse of the brunette beauties. A source from the NYPD told the paper that they were called to the scene "for a large crowd blocking the door." Fortunately, no one was arrested, but the cops did issue "three summonses for disorderly conduct." Really? New Yorkers making all of this fuss over the Kardashians?

Even 25-year-old Khloe was surprised by the response. "Can't believe the turn out tonight!" she tweeted. "I say this all of the time, I count my blessing everyday and I am forever grateful! I love you forever!" Kim echoed the sentiment. "Thank u to all of our amazing fans who came out to support @DashNYC. u really mean the world to me and my sisters! U are the reason we exist!"

Hey, at least they recognize that they'd be nothing without the support of their fans.

Dash NYC is officially open for business -- or you can visit their other store locations in Calabasas, California, and Miami, Florida.
