People love to hate the Kardashians, but the truth is, they have a keen business sense and looking as good as they do is a full-time job. Among the most social media conscious business people ever, they've built an empire based on their daily lives and have been able to, time and time again, redirect the conversation in their favour. While people like Piers Morgan are quick to dismiss them as anti-feminist, we can't help but to admire how they have appropriated for themselves the power of their sexuality. Rather than letting someone else profit over their good looks, and allure, they have taken that power back and collectively earned hundreds of millions of dollars. Like them or not, you can't help but admire their work ethic and keen business sense.
While Kim Kardashian infamously broke the Internet with her nude photoshoot for Paper magazine in 2014, she has also made some pretty big splashes on her own - collectively making Twitter lose their sh*t at least twice this year so far. Until a few weeks ago when a photo of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez became the most liked photo on Instagram, it was a picture of Kendall Jenner - who had taken the spot from Kim, whose wedding photo with Kanye West long held the title.
Choosing just fifteen of the sexiest photos from the Kardashian/Jenner household was no easy task, and if you like what you see, we highly recommend checking out their social media accounts for more inspiration.
17 Bathing Beauty
Kylie has made us believers in bikinis as casual wear. It seems like she has more bikinis than we have pairs of unmatched socks and we are seriously digging it. We especially love how so many of her suits really challenge the traditional look and form of what we think of as bathing suits, and how much better hers look on most women then the ones we grew up with. We also really love Kylie with shoulder length hair, especially pushed back behind her ears like that. Kylie really is the full package.
16 Kim and Kanye
Kim Kardashian is not prepared to let us forget her fame started with an embarrassing (or was it?) s*x tape. Rather than let that drag her down to nothing, she used it to her advantage and became one of the most powerful women in the world. Now that she's with Kanye, she seems more sure of herself than ever and seems willing to want to let us know how passionate she is about her new husband. While we don't necessarily want to think of Kanye in sexual situations, this shot is undeniably hot.
15 Conceptual Kardashian
One of the things we love most about Kendall is that she reminds us of our high school crush. Super beautiful but a little shy, we knew underneath her school uniform, she was hiding a killer body. While Kendall can be overtly sexy when she wants, we love how she prefers to be a bit of a tease. She's not as overtly sexy as her sisters, preferring to be a little understated and a little mysterious. This bikini leaves very little to the imagination, but Kendall doesn't let us have a full look - instead forcing us to imagine just how good it looks on her.
14 Rainbow Fun
One thing is for sure, dating a Kardashian would never be boring. There is something incredibly sexy about the almost chameleon identity of the Kardashian family, and Kylie in particular. We love the sense of adventure, willing to take on risky looks and completely overhaul your identity. These rainbow braids are among our favourite ever Kylie looks, it's the perfect mix of fun, cute and hot. And even though we're less sure about this outfit, Kylie very much pulls it off.
13 Mellow Yellow
While it was fun when Kylie was experimenting with different hair colours, we think she looks absolutely amazing with her dark hair as well. It seems to make her skin look even more olive and her beautiful brown eyes pop even more. This bikini shot shows off just how far Kylie has come from the earliest seasons of Keeping up with the Kardashians, and how she might actually be the hottest Jenner/Kardashian - honestly, she might be the hottest girl in the world right now.
12 Orange Dreams
Our religious affiliation? Kardashians in bikinis. Kendall may be the slimmest of the Kardashians, needing to stay lean for her runway model career, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have curves. This photo proves very much that Kendall absolutely has that signature Kardashian body with curves in all the right places. We absolutely love how this orange bikini accentuates her figure in all the right ways. Something about a girl just out of the pool is one of the sexiest things in the world.
11 Red Lips
Khloe seems like a ridiculous amount of fun, and she knows how to kill any look she channels. We love how there are echoes of Beyonce here, but it's still 100% Kardashian. We love this photo because it's like Khloe is staring us down, just daring us to approach her. The tight material around her breasts and that teasing zipper is just so inviting -- but at the same time, we're a little afraid that Khloe would tear us apart for even trying. Those red lips look absolutely delicious.
10 Artfully Bare
Proving once again that her body is a work of art, Kim Kardashian bared it all for Instagram. The modern Helen of Troy, rather than launch a thousand ships, Kim K launched a million pocket rockets. She has curves for days and looks like just the right kind of soft. We're literally not sure if it's even possible that she be any more perfect than she is here... Kim shows that she's not just about vulgar sexuality and that there is inherent beauty to the human form.
9 The K+K Collection
Modelling her own swimwear collection, Kylie makes a convincing case for why we should buy one of her bikinis for our own girlfriends. Incredibly sexy without ever passing the limits of good taste, this shot shows off all of Kylie's amazing curves. We even love the neon green on her - which is saying something. We're also wondering if the bathing suit has a front clasp because it looks like it does -- and that inspires some pretty interesting fantasies. Honestly, we want to know what Kylie's workout routine is because she is really fit.
8 Educational and Sexy
Demonstrating a tried and true technique of strapless wear, Kardashian lets us in on the biggest secret of red carpet fashion: double stick tape. Without seeing this photo, we wouldn't be so sure we would want to know so much about what makes Kardashian's breasts seemingly defy gravity but damn this is so much hotter than we ever thought it could be. Part of it is just how much fun Kim seems to be having while she seems happy to be with Kanye, it's sometimes as if she's abandoned her million watt smile for him. Oh well, we'll always have Insta-memories.
7 Make Calvin Klein Great Again
Kendall Jenner is incredibly beautiful with a perfect figure. She's honestly the ultimate dream girl, balancing good looks, goofy attitude and a strong business sense. We also love that she seems dedicated to reviving Calvin Klein, which was falling on some hard times until a few years ago. This photo inspires more than a few feelings in us, and we would love to imagine waking up to this beautiful image. The only thing that would make this photo better is if Kendall's hand was slipping a little higher, but we like a bit of a tease.
6 Getting fit
We've always loved Khloe for her sassy attitude and willingness to call her sisters on their crap - but the past couple of years, she's upped her fitness game and has run herself into the next league. As hot as the Kardashians are when they dress up for an event or for a photoshoot, we have a soft spot for them when they are more casual. And at the end of the day, we'll take a girl who looks smashing in yoga pants over an evening gown any day of the week. A girl who has a passion for getting healthy and staying fit is also super sexy. We're so proud of Khloe!
5 Dreaming of Orlando
Lately, Kylie Jenner has been killing it, completely threatening Kim's supremacy as the hottest Kardashian sister. More obviously laid back than Kim, so many of Kylie's photos of are her partying and lounging by the pool. Here she's wearing an absolutely unassuming workout bathing suit and she rocks it beyond words. We are so into this new trend of Calvin Klein outfits, they look comfortable to slip in off and out. If only we could also be slipping into the pool in Orlando!
4 Throwback Thursday Playboy Edition
Kim Kardashian recently posted this photo from behind the scenes of her Playboy shoot back in 2007. It reminds us that Kim was ALWAYS hot and that she could literally rock just about any look. As always, so much of Kim's appeal is in her confidence, just the way she holds herself and looks into the camera is more than enough for us. With her notable assets on display here, that outfit really leaves nothing to the imagination. We especially love that while Kim is all dolled up, this is still ostensibly a candid shot - which only goes to prove that Kim never stops working it.
3 The Quiet One
Kendall Jenner always seemed a little less into the whole reality TV thing. Always a little quieter, she also avoided transforming herself into just another Kim Klone. Instead, she has pursued a career in modelling and has worked with some of the biggest fashion houses in the world. Obviously, she still likes SOME attention, but she is by far the quietest member of the immediate Kardashian/Jenner clan and that is why we love this image. There is something so absolutely sexy about that quiet and shy girl letting it all loose, and beyond the fact Kendall is flashing us, she looks like she's having so much fun - which only makes it sexier.
2 Two For One
One of our favourite things about the Kardashians is that not only do they enjoy stripping down, they seem to be pretty good at convincing their friends to follow suit. So when Kim Kardashian was joined by model Emily Ratajkowski, they both stripped down and showed us what they had hiding under their clothes! While we've already seen both of them naked before, having both of them in the shot, unapologetically flipping off all the haters makes us doubly excited. Honestly, the only thing sexier than a beautiful naked woman is a beautiful naked woman who is comfortable in her skin. We really hate how people like Piers Morgan tried to use this photo as an opportunity to make fun of the Kardashians, and criticize women who are empowered in their sexuality.
1 Nothing to Wear
It doesn't matter if you have millions to your name, sometimes finding the right outfit is easier said than done. Kim Kardashian clearly faced this issue head on, preferring to snap an Instagram shot of her naked body in its full glory. Neither the first nor the last time she's posed nude, we still think this is maybe Kim K's hottest ever shot. Something about it feels so much more intimate than her others, you almost want to believe she is sending this just to you in a late night sexting session. As a rule, we prefer Kim as a brunette, but that does little to put a dent in the overall hotness of this Instagram photo.
