Keeping up with the luxurious life of billionaire Kim Kardashian

Ruhi Gilder
Kim has many feathers in her cap, reality TV star, entrepreneur, fashionista, actress and producer, but yesterday with the release of Forbes’ 35th Annual World’s Billionaires List, she officially joins the world billionaire club.
The 40-year-old is number 2674 on the list, with a fortune of $1BN, thanks to her cosmetics empire, reality TV stints, endorsement deals and investments, according to Forbes magazine. While Kim makes her debut on the list, sister Kylie Jenner was dropped off it, after Forbes claims that she has been inflating the size of her cosmetic business. Kardashian’s estranged husband, Kanye West also made the billionaire list with wealth amounting to $1.8BN.

The Kardashian family is known for perfecting the concept of ‘famous for being famous.’ Starting their own reality TV show ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ in 2007, the whole family catapulted to fame. In June 2017, she launched her own beauty line, KKW Beauty, and recently released her own line of shapewear called Skims.

Kardashian is the embodiment of the lavish life of a Hollywood celebrity. Right from her 2014 fairy-tale wedding to Kanye West in Italy, this celeb icon knows how to enjoy her wealth.

The wedding celebrations started in Paris, where Kardashian had her bachelorette with family and friends, a rehearsal dinner in the Palace of Versailles’s Hall of Mirrors and ended in Florence for the ceremony itself. Kanye West reportedly dropped $8 million on his bride’s engagement ring. The eye-popping 15-carat cushion-cut diamond was designed by jeweller Lorraine Schwartz.

Known for her fabulous style, Kardashian gives us a glimpse into her incomparable wardrobe. A row of the ultimate status symbol, Birkin bags lines her closet, which also has several well-known fashion designer labels.

Not just her closet, but the Kardashian-West’s Hidden Hills home is also envy-worthy. Purchased back in 2014 for a cool $20 million, the house has a minimal white aesthetic.

Kardashian made headlines for her lavish lifestyle even during the pandemic when she took her close family and friends to a private island to celebrate her 40th birthday. Flying via private jet to Tahiti, for a week-long vacation, the family’s social media was flooded with drool-worthy images. She drew a lot of flak for the decision, as it flouted California’s non-essential travel ban, though Kim clarified that all quarantine measures and precautions were taken beforehand. There’s no stopping this billionaire Kardashian!
