The Rise Of Kim Kardashian

For some people, Kim Kardashian is merely another reality TV star with minimal talents. But it seems the fashion industry has taken her under it’s wing this last year propelling her to new heights!

Just this past year, Kim has covered prestigious fashion magazines, such as DuJour, CR Fashion Book, Elle and L’Officiel Hommes. She also attended the Met Gala sporting that floral Givenchy number, which will not be forgotten in a hurry… and has been rumoured to hang out with Anna Wintour herself. In addition to her pregnancy outfits being relentlessly photographed, Kim has remained in the public eye… with the aid of her engagement to Kanye West also.

Kardashian has been welcomed by many iconic names into the fashion elite, something many people have tried and failed to do. Some big names in fashion have been singing her praises:

“She’s beautiful – and in fashion, that is a talent you know. She was also a very sweet person, a hard worker. She’s controversial, but so was Marilyn Monroe and I always like controversial people.”Carine Roitfeld

“She came to set – and I always judge the person I’m going to photograph by how they are with my assistants and my crew – and she looked at each one and introduced herself. She was just so personable with everyone. She was wonderful. I really had the best time.”Bruce Weber

Although Kim’s celebrity status could be the sole reason for her acceptance into the industry, it seems she is still towering above her fellow celebs. The lucky girl sat front row in Fashion Week shows last year, unlike other reality stars that struggled in desperation to be seen during Fashion Month.

It’s a happy coincidence that her hubby-to-be is involved in many fashion campaigns, yet Kim has branched out on her own and 2014 will definitely be her year. With a gorgeous baby, devoting fiance, blossoming career and the wedding of the century coming up, we cannot wait to see where Kim will take her success. Maybe she’ll land that Vogue cover she’s always dreamed of?
