Celebrities: A Retrospective on Kim Kardashian
December 29, 2011
Los Angeles CA United States
There’s more than meets the eye to Kim Kardashian. Full and voluptuous, with dark hair, dark brown eyes and an estimated net worth of $45 million, this Armenian-American princess is the very definition of the modern celebutante – she’s a socialite, reality TV star, business owner, designer, model and actress with a global following. You name it, she does it – she has her own lines of clothing, cosmetics and perfume, stars in her own reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and she guest-starred on Dancing With the Stars, Celebrity Apprentice, How I Met Your Mother and 90210, to drop a few big names. She’s a bestselling author, too – her two books, Dollhouse and Kardashian Konfidential, both made the New York Times Best Seller List. Featured in the December 2007 issue of Playboy – and on the cover, too – Kim had one of the best-selling Playboy spreads of all time, and it’s certainly not hard to see why. Kim’s figure keeps fans tuning in to KUWTK – not to mention playing Kim Kardashian: Hollywood and reading countless tabloid stories – and it attracted her equally-famous husband, rapper and designer Kanye West. Kim and Kanye had a daughter, North, in 2013, and married the following year in a lavish, multimillion-dollar ceremony at the Forti di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.These days, Kim’s more talked-about than ever – fans watch her every move, and anything she does is liable to inspire a hashtag and hundreds of comments on Instagram. A Vogue cover with her main man, Kanye? #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple and 250,000 sales. A racy Paper cover, baring her famous ass, covered in oil, for the world to see? #breaktheinternet and millions of page views. In 2015, Kim hopes to publish Selfish, a 352-page coffee-table book of her favorite selfies, the busty cover of which was quick to make the rounds on social media. From décolletage to derrière, New York to L.A., Ray J to Kanye, one thing is for sure – from the bottom up, Kim Kardashian is on top of the world.
