How Kim Kardashian Become Famous

By Tiara

As seen with all of Hollywood’s famous people, there is always an interesting story behind what makes someone become famous. For example, Taylor Swift, one of the most well-known singers in America, didn’t achieve her fame as a singer until she was already established as a musician.

Her success comes not only from her singing but also her songwriting and marketing skills. She is known to never take herself too seriously which has helped her remain popular for years!

With that said, let's talk about how actress, producer, entrepreneur, and social media influencer Kim Kardashian became famous! Read on to learn more about this fascinating topic.

Kim K had some major breaks early in life. Her father died when she was eight leaving her mother as the family matriarch. Her mom started dating a man who would eventually abandon the family, moving out with his daughter. This left twenty-something year old Kim looking after her younger sister and developing strong leadership qualities.

She later married Kanye West, then a relatively unknown rapper. The two got into business together before he made it big as a music artist and she became famous for being his wife. With their combined income, they were able to live a wealthy lifestyle which included having children.

But here’s the thing about rich people: they're usually really boring, friendly people.

Marriage to rapper Kanye West

After five years of dating, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West married in an elaborate ceremony held at her home in Calabasas, California on July 9, 2016. The pair had been engaged since February 2015, but waited until their wedding season for it to be announced.

The couple’s nuptials were attended by over 2,000 guests, including Kris Jenner (Kardashian’s mother), Khloé Kardashian (Kim’s sister) and Robert Kardashian Jr., Caitlyn Jenner (Younique’s daughter), Taylor Swift, Serena Williams, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel, Karl Lagerfeld, Lily Aldridge and more!

It was reported that Kylie spent $500,000 on clothing alone while filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians. She also reportedly paid around $30,000 per month in housekeeping services so she could keep up with the newlyweds’ hectic schedule.

Since then, the two have welcomed three children together; son Saint is born in September 2017, Chicago is born in May 2018 and North has arrived in January 2020.

Their wedding photo shoot

After six months of dating, Kanye West announced to the world that he was engaged to his girlfriend Kim Kardashian. The couple got married just one year later in an elaborate ceremony where guests were treated to some spectacular fashion displays.

Many people consider their engagement photoshoot to be what made them famous. They still have their own style, but it is very much influenced by how they look during the photoshoot.

By having long, beautiful hair and wearing expensive clothes, Kim and Ye gave the public more material to admire and inspire looks from.

After the photos came out, many people began copying some of their hairstyles and clothing pieces.

They had their baby

After months of media coverage, speculation, and engagement updates, news broke in May 2016 that the couple was expecting their first child together. On June 18th, they announced via Instagram that they were having a girl! The name is North West Apollonia Kiara Carson.

After weeks of rumors and reports about what kind of family they wanted to have, it seems as though the Kardashians found themselves with no choice but to go for a traditional family setup. This comes as no surprise given Kylie’s pregnancy earlier this year.

While some people may think that having a daughter is easier because you already have one example, nothing could be further from the truth! Having a son means more diapers and less free time!

Parents of both types really need to be prepared for all sorts of situations. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to prepare yourself before the little one arrives. Here are some things parents must do to make sure everything goes smoothly when children enter the picture.

They launched a perfume

In May 2016, beauty entrepreneur Kim Kardashian announced that she would be launching her own fragrance! She also revealed some of the ingredients, including white tea, lily flower, green apple, and cucumber.

She described the scent as “fresh” and said it was inspired by her love for nature. Fans loved the new fragrances and it quickly became one of the top selling products in the company’s history.

Kardashian is now known not just as an actress and fashion icon but also as a businesswoman who creates popular merchandise. Her line of deodorants has sold over $100 million since they were first released in 2012.

Her success comes from being creative and investing in marketing strategies to promote her brands. By staying in the spotlight through social media and keeping up with other influencers, she has built herself a powerful brand.

She started her own brand

After filming an episode of MTV’s popular show The Hills in 2007, actress Paris Hilton made a comment about how much she admired singer/model Kendall Jenner‘s look. At that time, it was known as the leggy, booty-shaking short dress with thigh highs and some very impressive fake tanned legs.

Kendall agreed to do a photoshoot with Paris for their magazine and since then, her career has been on an upward trajectory ever since.

She now has her own line of clothing and products, which is heavily marketed through social media sites like Instagram. Her style is always seen in lots of skimpy clothes and high heeled shoes, making her seem almost sexier than before.

Many people have said that she became famous because of her looks, but this only seems true if you don’t take into account all of her other achievements. If you do, then clearly not just her appearance makes her successful.

She started doing commercials

After graduating with her degree in Business Administration, she decided to try something different – commercial modeling. You may have seen some of her before!

In 2007, just one year after entering the industry, Kylie was signed by an agency and soon landed her first big break as a model. Since then, she has modeled for brands such as Calvin Klein, Gap, Target, and Victoria’s Secret, among others.

Her beautiful face and signature long blond hair made her very popular, making it easy to pick up the profession.

She is also known for being famous for nothing. Even though she has her own clothing line, Makeup Line, and fragrance, she still enjoys going out without much fashion or perfume. This could be because she makes so much money off these products!

While most models are paid well, she consistently ranks number one in highest earning models. Her biggest paycheck came when she starred in a Vogue spread back in 2015 where she received $500,000!

These earnings make it clear how successful she is as a celebrity. Not only does she enjoy success in glamour photos and advertisements, but she also earns significant income.
