Just days ago, Kylie Jenner was named one of the Time's most influential people on the internet. Now, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner industrial complex has received an even more honorable achievement: the cover of Forbes magazine.
The beauty entrepreneur came in at number 27 on Forbes' annual list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women, but she scored the cover because she's only 20 years old — the youngest woman to *ever* make the list.
And that's not the only incredible achievement Kylie's being celebrated for.
The other $100 million can be credited to TV programs ("Keeping Up With the Kardashians," "Life of Kylie"), endorsing products (Puma shoes, PacSun clothing), and $60 million in estimated after-tax dividends she's taken from Kylie Cosmetics.
"It’s incredible to be recognized for something I’m so passionate about, and I’m really grateful for that. I’ve always loved makeup and worked really hard to bring the first lip kit to market. Connecting with my fans and creating product that excites them has been an incredible process. I’ve learned so much along the way and I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams," Jenner said.
What is a "self-made" billionaire anyways?
Forbes defined it as "anyone who didn’t inherit any part of their money," according to WWD. Got it.
And since you're probably wondering, here's where some other celebs and beauty moguls ranked on the list:
Oprah Winfrey (number 6 at $3.1 billion); Jin Sook Chang, cofounder, Forever 21 (number 13 at $1.5 billion); Anastasia Soare, founder of Anastasia of Beverly Hills, Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx, and Carolyn Rafaelian, founder of Alex and Ani (all tied at number 21 at $1 billion); Tory Burch (number 29 at $800 million); Huda Kattan, founder of Huda Beauty, (number 37 at $550 million); Vera Wang (number 34 at $630 million); Jamie Marie Kern Lima, cofounder and ceo of IT Cosmetics (number 44 at $440 million); Beyoncé (number 53 at $355 million), and Taylor Swift (number 60 at $320 million).
So who says the Kardashian-Jenners' only talent is "being famous"?
Turns out that leveraging your fame into fortune is the move!
