The youngest of the Kardashian family fronts our social media issue, which stars digital royalty such as Selena Gomez, Louise Pentland and Ellie Goulding.
Although she became a famous name through family ties, Jenner has since built up her own business empire – which includes three fashion lines, one with Topshop, another with Puma and also a project with her sister Kendall Jenner. Then there’s her hugely successful Lip Kits – her most recent set sold out in under 10 minutes and were later sold on eBay for 10 times the original price
“I haven’t had a dollar of my mum’s money for five years,” she said in the June issue. “Ever since I started earning my own money, I’ve paid for everything: all my cars, houses, clothes, everything. I like to know exactly what’s going on and I’m actually quite careful with what I spend. We all are as a family.”
She is due to outdo her sisters on Instagram by 2017 and to have her own “Discover” channel on Snapchat before the year is through – Jenner is fast becoming the most influential Kardashian. Unsurprisingly, she’s a proud feminist.
“I do consider myself a feminist,” she says. “I’m a young woman, for one thing, and I don’t depend on a man or anybody else. I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I’m an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own.”
Despite her huge social media success, Jenner hopes that one day she’ll be able to take a step back from her many, many social channels and focus solely on her beauty line.
“I only show people what I want them to see,” she said. ” And in time, I think I’ll jus slowly start moving behind the scenes. The show has to end eventually, and I’m not going to leave until we’re done with it, but by 20 I want to have the whole of my cosmetics line out because that’s my primary focus. I definitely won’t want to be doing anything else that would make me more public.”
