Kylie Jenner

Kylie Kristen Jenner (born August 10, 1997) is an American socialite, media personality, and businesswoman. She starred in the E! reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians from 2007 to 2021 and is the founder and owner of cosmetic company Kylie Cosmetics. She is the fourth-most-followed person on Instagram.

At age 14 in 2012, Jenner collaborated with the clothing brand PacSun, along with her sister Kendall, and created a line of clothing, Kendall & Kylie. In 2015, she launched her own cosmetics line called Kylie Lip Kits, which was renamed to Kylie Cosmetics the following year.[8]

Jenner has been an influential figure in culture since the mid 2010s. In 2014 and 2015, Time magazine listed the Jenner sisters on their list of the most influential teens in the world, citing their considerable influence among youth on social media.[9][10] In 2017, Jenner was placed on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, making her the youngest person to be featured on the list.[11] Jenner starred on her own spin-off series, Life of Kylie, which premiered in 2017.[12]

Jenner’s wealth and its coverage on the magazine Forbes has been a source of controversy in the past. In 2019, the magazine estimated Jenner’s net worth at US$1 billion and called her the world’s youngest self-made billionaire at age 21;[13][14] the notion of Jenner being self-made has been controversial.[15][16] In May 2020, Forbes released a statement accusing Jenner of forging tax documents so she would appear as a billionaire.[17]

The Jenner sisters co-hosted the 2014 Much Music Video Awards, where Kylie made her acting debut in a promo for the show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in June 2014.[38] In August 2014, the Jenner sisters appeared in singer PartyNextDoor‘s “Recognize” music video.[39] She also appeared in Jaden Smith‘s music video for his song “Blue Ocean”.[40] Jenner and her sister Kendall co-authored the dystopian science fiction novel Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia, which revolved around two twin girls, Lex and Livia, in a “self-sustaining biosphere” put together from the remains of Earth known as Indra.[41] The novel was criticized upon release as a ghostwritten work, which prompted its ghostwriter Maya Sloan to reveal that while the Jenner sisters wrote a two-page outline for what they wanted the novel to be like, Sloan was truly responsible for the writing of the book. However, the Jenners’ creative director, Elizabeth Killmond-Roman, clarified that the two had numerous Skype and FaceTime calls with Sloan to discuss the content of the novel.[42] The novel was mostly panned by critics, and sold only 13,000 copies in its first four months on sale.[43] The book was also given a sequel, Time of the Twins, which was also co-authored by the Jenner sisters.
