    Kim Kardashian made headlines this Halloween--but it wasn't just for her costume.

    The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star attended her sister Kendall Jenner's spooktacular bash on Wednesday with Jonathan Cheban. The pair dressed up as Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee; however, guests had a hard time identifying the duo.

    "Nobody knew who we were," a frustrated Kim said via an Instagram Stories video, later adding that all of the attendees were "too f--king young" to figure it out and that it was "so sad."

    While sister Kylie Jenner caught onto the costume right away, many of the guests continued to struggle with placing the costume.

    "Ugh I hate that word! Why did I even say that?" she wrote at the time. "You are a million percent right and I actually greatly dislike when people use that word! I will do better! I am sorry! Much love today."
