Kim Kardashian’s Transition From a Wardrobe Stylist to a Lawyer is what Makes Us Love Her
Everybody knows Kim Kardashian, a reality TV star, an entrepreneur, a loving wife to Kanye West, and a thoughtful mother to soon-to-be four children. The 38-year-old belongs to one of the most influential clans, the Kardashian-Jenner, that’s been taking over headlines every now and then.
But of late, she made news for expressing her desire to become a lawyer, garnering mixed reactions from the public. For some, she was just one of the richest, having a net worth of $350 million, while some lauded her for pursuing what she really wanted. Die-hard fans of Kim would know how far she had come and how much she had evolved through the years.
Kim is one of the four children of Kris Houghton and Robert Kardashian and although you now remember her as the voluptuous businesswoman, she was first a stylist. Apparently, she styled singer Brandy Norwood in 2004 and because of her skills, she snatched a spot in socialite Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie’s show called “The Simple Life” for three years, from 2003 to 2006.
On being a business-minded person, Kim narrated that it all started in her high school days when her dad told her that she could buy five Manolo Blahnik pairs as long as she paid him back with interest. These $700-shoes, she quipped, were the ones worn by Jennifer Lopez in her music video, so everybody had to have one.
There, she saw the opportunity to make money out if it and sold each for $2,500 on eBay. After seeing the return, she grew interested in it, so she sold her clothes that she doesn’t use anymore.
‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’
By 2006, she, Kourtney, and Khloe opened their DASH shop, a consignment store, in Calabasas, California, which stemmed from Kim’s fondness of reselling. Later on, they would open more branches in Miami and Soho. Although the sisters closed their business last year because they have respective brands to focus on, the KKW Beauty maven revealed in an interview that it may have started their long-running reality show because she said the initial goal of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” was to give publicity to their shop.
Little did they know that the reality show grew into something bigger that is well on its 16th season and which chronicles the lives of the clan. Kim also has tapped into the fitness pond when she launched her workout plan called “Fit In Your Jeans By Friday” in three DVDs, which she explained was a birth of the throngs of queries about her figure.
Marriage, Beauty Brands
In 2010, Kim dipped her toes into the beauty business when she launched her Glamour Tan gel in Sephora, which, at the time, had a $34 price tag but now apiece is sold for $79 on Amazon. Later on, she would release her first eponymous perfume, which is quite a foreboding of what she currently does. By the next year, she tied the knot with NBA star Kris Humphries, a broadcast was shown in US television and reportedly raked in $18 million in deals and licensing fees. Sadly, their marriage only lasted for 72 days.
Kim’s perfume line continued to release scents and by 2012, the three Kardashian siblings launched a full line of cosmetics under the Khroma Beauty, which was later changed to Kardashian Beauty after several brands having the same name or sound as theirs came out and threatened them. It was short-lived because, according to people in-the-know, the owners lacked involvement.
App, Book, and Emojis
After two years, Kim launched her own app called “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” which allegedly amassed $1.6 million in less than a week! She also managed to publish her book “Selfish,” which is a collation of her selfies from 2006 and 2014 – interestingly, it became a New York Times Bestseller. The socialite has an undeniable charisma to the audience even when she launched her Kimojis in 2015, which broke the App Store.
Kim and Kanye also revealed a kids clothing line, TheKidsSupply. In 2017, the influencer made her way back onto the beauty niche when she announced KKW Beauty whose first product was a $48-contour kit that immediately sold out, and the brand also ventured into fragrance. As smart as she is, she didn’t spend on advertising and relied on her being a social media superstar to market her products.
The most recent and unexpected was her intention to become a lawyer. Kim revealed that she is an apprentice for a law firm as she prepares for the 2022 bar exam. This was after she became instrumental in the release of Alice Marie Johnson.
