The Kardashians are by far one of the most popular celebrity families of this generation. Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall & Kylie (Jenner) are notably the most watched, imitated and loved women on this planet. Having been the first one in the public eye, Kim has essentially been the brand ambassador for her entire family with their hit show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Though as Kim’s spotlight is slowly diminishing, Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the siblings, is increasing her popularity and net worth exponentially. At 18 years old, Kylie Jenner, daughter of Kris Jenner and Olympian Bruce (or Caitlyn) Jenner, has become the next new trend setter of the decade, having a net worth of $5 million, a complete designer wardrobe and plenty of A-list friends.
While I’m unsure about the rest of the Kardashian clan, I have to admit- I do like Kylie. She’s just too cool. From her numerous beauty campaigns and her new Topshop collection she has grown into her own and has made a name for herself as the fun and rebellious Kardashian. She is not only pretty, but hardworking, generous and she has the right amount of “different” that her older sisters sometimes lack. She is not the average teenager to say the least, but if there was one Kardashian that I wouldn’t mind changing the face of fashion and beauty ideals, it would be Kylie.
Below I’ve compiled a list of the top 10 reasons why Kylie Jenner is the coolest Kardashian and hey maybe I’ll convince you at the end of it that the Kardashians aren’t half bad!
10. She is the Most Popular
Kylie Jenner has almost 43 million Instagram followers. 43 million! Though Kim does have the most followers as of right now, Kylie’s numbers are skyrocketing and I have no doubt that in the next year she will surpass her older sisters. She’s the most followed on Snapchat, she is one of the most followed teenagers on Twitter and her individual app is the most downloaded out of all of the Kardashians’ personalized websites and mobile apps. Kylie attributes her success to being more available and showing her real personality, not to mention the age difference definitely plays in her favor. She is essentially the most relatable Kardashian. She’s quirky and unreserved. Basically, she acts like an 18-year-old, which is appreciated.
9. She Has the Best Body
Kylie hands down has the best body. Yes, Kim has a glorious bum, Kendall has the perfect slim model physique, Khloe is the strongest and most athletic and Kourtney is the small petite one, but Kylie is the sexiest of the bunch. She’s average height, she has beautiful curves and a beautiful face. She can rock any style with that body. She’s also admitted to the fact that she has temporary lip fillers. Hell, why not? They actually look amazing on her. Not only does she have the best body but the best hair, too. Kylie launched her hair extension line with Bellami Hair, entitled Kylie Hair Kouture, which includes sixteen different shades that she regularly wears.
8. She is Taking Over the Fashion World
Kylie has been branded a “style ambassador” to Seventeen magazine. She’s been on the cover of Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, Seventeen and Remix, among others. She is constantly setting new trends with her ever changing hair styles and has this uncanny ability to be girly goth, super edgy and rebellious all at the same time. Her style is constantly evolving and she keeps it exciting. Her sisters on the other hand, have always sported the brown locks, tight clothes and dark eyeliner. Kylie regularly walks out of her house wearing sneakers and sweats. If that doesn’t say something about her effortlessly cool, I don’t give a f#%& attitude, I don’t know what does.
7. She is Getting Paid Serious Money
At the age of 18, Kylie Jenner is getting paid $5,000 per episode of the family’s show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. As the 11th season is out, it will be interesting to see whether she will be given a bigger part on the show. After all, a lot of viewers only watch because of her. There have also been rumors about a possible spin-off series starring the Jenner sisters! In 2012, Kylie also collaborated with the clothing brand PacSun, along with her older sister Kendall, and created their own clothing line “Kendall & Kylie.” They have also co-written a sci-fi novel named Rebels: City of Indra, which was released in 2014. Also, Kylie reportedly earned $100,000 for each Nicole by OPI signature nail polish endorsement and she gets $3,000 every time she tweets. Insane.
6. She Wants to Become an Actress
Kylie wants to become an actress? Yes please! She claims that she wants to branch out from the Kardashian name (or stigma) and become a legitimate actress. Up until the age of 13 Jenner used to be a part of her school’s and community’s plays and has mentioned in the past that this is something that she will likely pursue. She has a passion for acting and she has reportedly been taking vocal and acting lessons to realize her dream. This is a pretty brave move, venturing out into the acting world, but hey, as far as I know, aside from Kim K’s sex tape, none of the Kardashians have ever done movies. Maybe Kylie will be the first!
5. She Already Owns her Own House
How many 18-year-olds can say that? Over the summer Kylie turned 18 and was legally allowed to move out of her mother’s house. Over the past year she bought a $2.7 million, 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath mansion in the upscale community of Calabasas, California. She spent the entire year renovating the house until her move in date – her birthday. This new house is minutes away from sister Kourtney and Khloe and her mother Kris. Knowing Kylie’s style, this house is probably sleeked with white and black marble and dramatic accents! She lives there with her 3 Italian Greyhound dogs, Norman, Bambi & Sophia.
4. She is Dating Rapper Tyga
After a slew of rumors that they had recently broken up, Kylie and Tyga were sighted going to Justin Bieber‘s after party following the American Music Awards together this past weekend. To further kill the rumors, Kylie also Snapchatted “everybody chill” with a photo of her holding hands with a tattooed man – Tyga. Because of this relationship, she has gained an even bigger fan base and her world seems to have branched out into the hip hop scene, which she suits pretty well! Recently it was suggested that the couple were engaged and planned on announcing it after the AMA’s!
3. She Has the Coolest Best Friends
Kylie is regularly seen with Justin Bieber, Jaden Smith and Pia Mia. She’s grown up as an A-list kid in an A-list community. After choosing home-schooling in 2012, Kylie finished off her last years of high school at home, under supervision. But that did not stop her social life. She attends after parties, boat parties, parties on private islands, etc. She is also reportedly best friends with the Baldwin sisters and the Hadid kids. Her group of friends are the kind of people that everyone wants to know and be friends with. A great thing about Kylie is that she treats her friends as her family. She even spent last weekend celebrating “Friends-giving.”
2. She’s Very Family Oriented
Another thing that is really cool about Kylie is that she is super family oriented. She is very close to her sister Kendall, having done tons of endorsement deals as a duo. She is also very close to her half siblings, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. Her mother Kris Jenner and her go on girly weekend outings and dinner dates. Not only that, but rumor has it that Kylie was the one who visited her father when he made his transition to Caitlyn Jenner when the rest of the family was not able to. It’s great to see that she acknowledges that her loved ones come first and for someone who has grown up in the spotlight, Hollywood hasn’t ruined her.
1. She Appreciates Her Fans
Lastly, one of the best things about Kylie is that she truly appreciates her fans. She’s gone out of her way to meet them at appearances, she’s donated to multiple charities with her eBay auction account and she’s even started an Instagram movement where she asks people to post with the hash tag #IAmMoreThan and complete the sentence. When the “#IAmMoreThan” campaign launch on Sept 1st, Kylie announced that she planned to share six stories over six days. These stories would be from individuals who had faced adversities, bullying and discrimination but still came out with a positive outlook and became heroes in their own way. She’s appreciative and gives her fans the means and the encouragement to speak to her, message her and to confide in her as a normal teenager. Go Kylie!
