What family emergency? Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian bring the glam to Angel Ball red carpet in two very racy dresses... as it emerges Kanye West has been hospitalised

It had just emerged their beloved brother-in-law Kanye West had been hospitalised after suddenly cancelling the rest of his tour.

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.

Grinning and bearing it: Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian stoically smiled at the Angel Ball in New York on Monday despite another family emergency

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.

Kourntey and Khloe Kardashian arrived in style at the Angel Ball in New York this week. The family might have a lot goign on right now, but the ladies made sure to show their faces at the event where their father Robert was being honoured.

The sisters oozed their usual glamorous vibes whilst of course looking super sexy. Khloe chose a sparkly sheer number by Yousef al Jasmi and Kourtney stuck to a trusty Olivier Rousteing piece. Balmain is one of the family's regular go-to designers, which of course is no doubt helped by their friendship with Olivier.

While this exact ensemble wasn't shown on the resort 2017 runway, this skirt with its ruffled design and cut out sides was in a different colourway.
