Kim Kardashian is one of the most Googled and searched people on the Internet, not to mention one of Hollywood’s biggest names. While it seems that Kim achieved unworthy overnight success, that could be far from the truth. The 33-year-old reality star has been making a name for herself in the last decade by putting to use her business smarts and people skills which garnered the success she’s so rightfully earned. She’s sweet, talented, and brilliant – after all, who else could say they’ve made a multimillion dollar brand name for themselves?! We can’t help but LOVE Kim!
Why we do love Kim Kardashian? Let us count the ways:
1. Her love of her family
Before all the drama the later seasons have brought, her family’s E! reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians was basically a show that often highlighted the bond the Kardashian clan has with one another. While they may have their differences, Kim always had her family’s back, especially when it came to her sisters Khloe and Kourtney. People, such as myself, would initially tune in to see what those Kardashians would be up to, but it’s the love of each other and their familial closeness that would keep us coming back each week to watch. While it’s a little more drama-laden these days, the bottom line is that through the arguments and tear-stained fights, the Kardashians truly love each other and will always have each others’ backs.
2. Her impeccable sense of style
Whatever your body type, you can’t deny that Kim has some pretty serious sense of style. I mean, the gal did do styling for a living, working on the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Brandy before she was a household name. She also owns a clothing store and clothing lines, making her a credible fashionista. Kim has great style and it shows in her personal wardrobe. She usually keeps her look very classy and simple, often wearing neutral-colored tops and skinny jeans with boots when keeping it casual and A-line dresses for a more dressed up look. Kim knows her body type and wears clothing that flatters her curves rather than going with the trends that aren’t always flattering on everybody. Also, she isn’t stick thin and embraces her curvy body, which many ladies can relate to as well as be inspired by.
3. Her great taste in men
It’s no secret that Kim has had quite the history in the romance department. After all she’s dated some of the hunkiest men in Hollywood! From musicians to athletes, she sure knows how to pick them! She was known to have dated handsome crooner Nick Lachey post-divorce from Jessica Simpson and her long-time romance with sweet football player ex Reggie Bush seemed like a match made in heaven. She also has a history with Gabriel Aubry, Halle Berry’s swoon-worthy baby daddy, as well as infamous ex Ray J (whom the ladies apparently love, as shown on his reality dating competition show, For the Love of Ray J) – she even dated Nick Cannon before he got with Mariah Carey. And who can forget her romance with and short-lived marriage to young NBA player Kris Humphries?! Now she’s engaged to her long time friend and baby daddy Kanye West, which was the most interesting coupling to say the least! Suffice to say, Kim certainly has dated her fair share of gorgeous hunks, and we’re not mad at that.
4. Her business savvy ways
Think that Kim is all looks and no brains? Think again! How else would she be the highest earning reality television star in the history of the world?! The business savvy woman that she is, Kim has tried her hand successfully dabbling in fashion with fashion lines, fragrances, multiple reality shows, a makeup line, and partnerships with shoe and diet companies. She even wrote a book with sister Khloe and Kourtney, Kardashian Konfidential, which landed on the New York Times best seller list! Kimmy has succeeded in most of her business ventures and shows no signs of stopping.
5. Her humanitarianism
When she’s not working or being hounded by the paparazzi, Kim is a selfless being and gives back to humanity. She is a staunch supporter of charity and encourages her fellow celebs to give their clothes to charity auctions. She works in raising money for the Dream Foundation, which is a wish-granting organization for adults who suffer from terminal illness. When her marriage to Kris Humphries crumbled, she donated double the value of her wedding gifts to the charity. She has also traveled to Africa in support of Russell Simmons’ Diamond Empowerment Fund as well as has gone to help out in Haiti and Syria. She has previously supported a number of great organizations and charities, including: Alzheimer’s Association, American Foundation for AIDS research, Elton John AIDS Foundation, Generation Rescue, I Heart My Girlfriends, Make It Right, Mattel Children’s Hospital, Operation Once in a Lifetime, Race to Erase MS, Skin Cancer Foundation, The Salvation Army, Soles4Souls, True Colors Fund, and We Advance. Kim is also involved in Dress for Success, a non-profit organization helping low-income ladies to dress well for job interviews and giving them the necessary confidence they need to nab a job. She’s also been known to have raised and donated $50,000 to The Trevor Project, an organization that provides assistance and suicide prevention services to struggling LGBT teens.
