There’s no denying that Kim Kardashian is a household name. With over 154 MILLION Instagram followers and influence in the society like few others, it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t know Kim K.
Which makes it no surprise that the 2010s was without a doubt the decade of Kim Kardashian. Between marrying Kanye West, starting a family, and creating her own makeup line, Kim is the definition of doing the most. So for all you that say Kim Kardashian is famous for nothing, here are some of her best and brightest moments from the past decade:
With her new popularity flourishing, Kim took it upon herself to be the face of basically anything. While today, Kim Kardashian endorsing products is a rarity, back in 2010, it was an everyday thing. She was the face of diet pill lollipops and Sketchers- to name a few.
Ahh, the infamous 72-day marriage. One of Kim’s most significant moments without a doubt is her short-lived marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries. After an extravagant (to say the least) wedding, the couple broke things off after just 72 days of marriage. Yikes.
Not long after her marriage and divorce to Kris Humphries, Kim met Kanye. You know how it went from there. The couple went public with their relationship this year with Kanye even publicly announcing their pregnancy by calling Kim his “baby mom.”
Welcome home, North West! This year marks the start of the Kardashian-West family lineage that we didn’t know back then was only bound to grow. The announcement of the first Kardashian-West baby name is a moment we’ll never forget.
Kim and Kanye officially tied the knot in 2014 with a beautiful wedding in Florence, Italy, with baby North at their side. 2014 is also the year of the famous Paper magazine cover when Kim Kardashian (literally) “broke the internet” with a nude photoshoot. The photos were controversial, following the birth of her first child, but the magazine cover made a mark in Kim Kardashian’s history.
The year of Kimojis! Kim used the popularity of emojis to her advantage and created her own set of Kim K inspired emojis, called Kimojis. In 2015, Kim also released her photo book called Selfish, which included over 400 pages of all different photos of Kim and her family. The Kardashian-West family also welcomed the birth of their second child, Saint.
2016 was the year Kim was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel room during Paris Fashion Week, a moment we all remember. Kanye left the set of his show immediately following the news, and Kim was supposedly robbed of over $10 million worth of jewelry. Following the robbery, Kim took a step out of the spotlight as she said the situation changed her perspective of fame.
KKW Beauty is born! Starting as just a contour set, the beauty line has expanded substantially since it was first released. The beauty line was met with great success (I mean, it’s Kim K, what do you expect), as she continued to release a fragrance line later that year.
The year Kim Kardashian ventured into politics. After meeting with President Donald Trump this year, Kim took her relationship with politics even further when she helped a woman get out of jail. Kim and Kanye also welcome home their third child, Chicago, this year.
Kim took politics to a whole new level in 2019 when she announced her decision to become a lawyer. Reactions to the announcement were mixed, but Kim has remained steadfast in her decision. Kim and Kanye also welcomed the birth of their fourth child, Psalm, this year.
In one decade, Kim Kardashian made significant strides from TV personality to future lawyers. Her goals, ideals, and perspectives changed entirely over the past ten years. As for the future of Kim K, only time will tell.
