Kim Kardashian is officially a billionaire thanks to the huge success of Skims and KKW Beauty

As Queen Kim herself would say: ‘Not bad for a girl with no talent!’

Kim Kardashian has officially achieved billionaire status for the first time, according to Forbes, who announced her inclusion in their World’s Billionaires list.

The publication cited Kim’s two massively lucrative businesses, KKW Beauty and Skims, for the reasons behind her increased wealth, as well as income from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, real estate and various endorsement deals.

Forbes claim that Kim’s net worth has shot up from $780 million since October. KKW Beauty was reportedly bringing in about $100 million ever year since its launch in 2017, then when Kim sold 20% of her ownership stake in the company to beauty company Coty for $200 million, the value of her cosmetics company was placed at $1 billion. According to Forbes, the remaining 72% stake she still has in the company is worth around $500 million on its own.
