She teased her acting chops in a recently released promo clip for her first-ever Saturday Night Live hosting gig.

And Kim Kardashian was spotted heading back to her hotel in New York City on Thursday evening after getting in another rehearsal at Studio 8H.

The 40-year-old KUWTK star braved the chilly temperatures in a maroon trench coat layered over a cozy blue hoodie.

She concealed her signature raven strands with the hood of her sweatshirt, as well as with a solid black baseball cap.

Kardashian shielded her eyes from the flashbulbs with a pair of sunglasses and toted her belongings in a designer rhinestone handbag.

To complete her mis-matched ensemble, she rocked a pair of bright pink boots - which she had donned earlier in the day with a matching suit. 

Keeping her coat closed with her gloved hands, the SKIMS founder swiftly made her way from her vehicle to the entrance of her hotel.

A buff security guard followed closely behind her.

Just hours prior to her hotel arrival, Saturday Night Live released the first promotional video featuring Kardashian, as well as this week's musical guest Halsey and SNL cast member Cecily Strong.

In the short clip, Kim brutally shuts down Cecily after she suggests all three start up a girl group.

Kim introduced herself as 'Kim Kardashian West,' retaining her estranged husband Kanye West's last name, before jumping into the bit.

'Oh my gosh, this crazy thought just occurred to me in this exact moment right now,' Cecily jumped in once Kim introduced Halsey. 'Should we start our own girl group?'

'Absolutely not,' replied the pop star.

Kim was also a no.

'We already said "no" when you pitched that backstage,' she said dismissively.

'Oh, you could hear me,' Cecily replied. 'I wasn't sure because security had me in a headlock.'

In a second version of the promo, Cecily asked Kim if she was 'nervous about doing sketch comedy.'

'Why? I don't have to write sketches, do I?' she replied, to a 'no' from the comedian.

Halsey added that she also didn't need to memorize lines, as they would all be written on cue cards.

'Everyone else won't look as good as me, will they?' the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star worried.

'No, absolutely not,' Cecily replied adamantly. 'This is so easy!' Kim replied on a bubbly note.

Earlier in the day, Kim gave SNL fans a rare look into her preparation when she took over the show's Instagram account.

Many of the shots showed the star posing in some over-the-top outfits, including a netted ensemble and a plush hot pink suit. 

One shot showed Kim looking over a script, while others gave fans a peek at various elements of the show's set.

Despite oozing confidence in the fashion department, Kim is reportedly 'nervous' about her hosting gig and has reached out to her estranged husband Kanye West for advice.

'Kanye is quietly advising her on her performance, her opening monologue, even her costumes for the show,' a source told Fox News.

On Wednesday she was spotted making her way to NBC studios for rehearsals, appearing to be a little tense.

West has been integral to Kim's styling through the years, and it was previously reported the pair would continue to work together on creative projects despite ending their marriage. 

Though Kanye's never hosted SNL he has appeared on the show seven times as a musical guest.

He last appeared on the show in 2018, donning a Make America Great Again hat and going on a pro Donald Trump rant after the broadcast.

While Kim is courting some nerves, she's reportedly excited to prove herself on stage.

'Its a big challenge but she is determined to be a success,' the insider added.
