Kim Kardashian Has Officially Joined the Billionaire’s Club
It’s not every day that you expect to see a reality TV star turn into an entrepreneur and then a billionaire but, Kim Kardashian is proving everyone wrong.
The American socialite has an extraordinary knack for finding opportunities and making the best out of them. The 40-year-old TV personality has been spending her time working on her businesses; KKW Beauty, KKW Fragrance, SKIMS, and even her own video game. Since her breakthrough into Hollywood, the starlet has managed to gain 236 million followers and 69.7 million on Twitter, where she often posts about her brands.
Keeping Up with Kim
Kim Kardashian became a household name soon after the release of the reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The show followed the lives of the Kardashian-Jenner clan as they lived their lavish lives. It was not long till Kim became the favorite, thanks to her fun and straightforward personality.
The show was loved by many, making it one of the reasons behind it running for 20 seasons and introducing several spinoffs. Despite having a tough schedule because of the KUWTK, Kim managed to create her own beauty, fragrance, and underwear line.
Another Feather in the Cap for Kim
Kim Kardashian is known for being a reality show star, businesswoman, media personality, and now a billionaire. According to Forbes, Kim Kardashian is officially a billionaire. Last October, she had $780 million. Still, that number increased after the high sales from her businesses –KKW Beauty and Skims – her reality show, a number of endorsement deals, including some investments.
Where It All Began
Kim Kardashian stepped into the makeup industry in 2017 and launched KKW Beauty soon after her half-sister Kylie Jenner’s success. Adopting a similar style and heavy social media marketing, Kim was able to turn her first launch into a major success.
Since then, the beauty brand expanded to eyeshadows, concealers, and even had collaborations with many famous names including make-up artist Mario Dedivanovi, popularly known as Makeup by Mario. By the end of 2018, KKW Beauty added a whopping $100 million to Kim’s name.
On the other hand, Skims is the shapewear brand that she owns most of, which was launched in 2019. The company quickly changed its style soon after the pandemic, targeting the young demographic by introducing comfy clothes. Forbes made an estimate stating that Kim’s stake in the company is worth $225 million, clearly making her a billionaire.
While the reality star has quite a number of critics, if there’s one thing they all can agree on is the fact that Kim Kardashian is a smart businesswoman.
