While it's hard to imagine a world without Kim Kardashian, the reality star has given it some thought, and she's come up with a plan. Between now and her time, she will take nude selfies. Or in her own words, "Nude selfies 'til I die." That's one way to contemplate your own mortality! It's definitely the best way to give an acceptance speech.
Re/Code co-founder Kara Swisher presented Kim with the Break the Internet Webby award, which is a new one. It honors her "preternatural sense of being in the public eye," which "sees her appearing at seemingly every major cultural moment." It also acknowledges the Kim Kardashian brand of celebrity, one that "has shaped our understanding of how someone or something can draw the popular attention of internet users everywhere."
She wore clothes to the event, specifically a Vivienne Westwood dress. See it here:

Update: The dress doubled as plane-wear, as the award-winner hopped on a private jet to Cannes. She gave a tour of her accommodations on her Snapchat, including where she'd sleep, and noted that she wasn't wearing false eyelashes or hair extensions while hanging out with the internet's finest.
