Kylie Kristen Jenner is an American socialite, model, businesswoman, and social media personality with an estimated net worth of $750 million as of 2023.
Kylie first garnered attention in E!’s ongoing popular TV series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which revolved around the lives of Kylie’s mother and step-sisters, The Kardashians. Following her ‘acting’ debut, she was also regularly featured as a guest actor in other Keeping Up with the Kardashian spin-off shows like Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons.
Following her exposure from KUWTKs, a 14-year-old Kylie, alongside her sister Kendall, collaborated with clothing brand PacSun, to create their clothing line, Kendall & Kylie. Kylie launched her own cosmetics brand called Kylie Lip Kits in 2015, which has now been rebranded as Kylie Cosmetics.
Both Kylie and Kendall were on Time’s list of the most influential teens in the world in 2014 and 2015, considering the amount of influence they had on the youth as well as on social media. The Huffington Post reports Kylie became the youngest person to be featured on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list in 2017.
This prompted E! to create a special spin-off starring Kylie, called Life of Kylie, which premiered in 2017. The New York Post accredited Kylie as the most influential celebrity in the fashion industry in 2018.
Over the years, Kylie has appeared in over 11 music videos, 13 television series, and even a cameo in Ocean’s 8. She has also been the recipient of one Teen Choice Awards, two Capricho Awards, and a Streamy Award.
In 2019, Forbes estimated Kylie was the world's youngest self-made billionaire at the age of 21, dethroning Mark Zuckerberg. Though this claim of being a self-made billionaire ruffled quite a few feathers, 2020 saw Forbes accusing Kylie of forging tax documents of Kylie Cosmetics, to appear as a billionaire.
Currently, Kylie is the most-followed woman, the third-most followed account on Instagram, and has 39.9 million followers on Twitter, ranking her 45th in the most followed accounts on the platform. Forbes has listed Kylie at 24 in their 2022 list of 30 under 30 Hall of Fame, apart from being ranked by the magazine as #51 in their list of America's Self-Made Women in 2021, and #1 in their list of Celebrity 100 in 2020.
Given the family she belongs to, one would assume Kylie made her staggering $750 million from her acting/modeling career, but a vast majority of that valuation comes from a cosmetics company.
Apart from Kylie Cosmetics, Kylie has had numerous business ventures over the years. Her first venture was the Kylie & Kendal clothing line, which the sisters released in collaboration with PacSun and thus proceeds from which would have been distributed between the two. Kylie and Kendal ‘wrote’ a science fiction novel, Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia, which did feature a ghostwriter, and was even given a sequel, Time of the Twin, also co-authored by the Jenners.
Kylie launched her first lipstick line in 2015 using the $250,000 she had earned from her acting gigs and KUWTKs appearances, which eventually came to be known as Kylie Cosmetics, which was also supported by an app that reached number one on the iTunes App Store. Kylie sold 51% of her company to Coty Inc. in 2019, for $600 million, which allowed her to net an estimated $540 million, pretax as reported by Forbes.
Following the sale of Kylie Cosmetics, Kylie partnered with step-sister, Kim Kardashian's KKW Beauty, to launch a new fragrance. Kylie launched her own skincare brand, Kylie Skin, the following month, and released a plethora of products like face washes, scrubs, moisturizers, and makeup removing wipes. This was followed by a collaboration with another step-sister, Khloé Kardashian, called Kylie Cosmetics x Koko Kollection.
Vogue reported that 2020 also saw a collaboration between the Jenner sisters, Kylie Cosmetics x Kendall Jenner and a baby product line called Kylie Baby.
As reported by Forbes, Kylie has earned over 20% of her $18 million earned by endorsing Pacsun and Puma in 2016. Some other brands endorsed by Kylie Jenner are Kylie Cosmetics, Skims, Adidas, Calvin Klein, Kendall x Kylie, Beats x Balmain, Nip + Fabs, etc. all of which would have surely come with lucrative contracts.
With her massive 380 million followers on Instagram alone, it is no surprise she rakes in over $1,494,000 per post as reported by Hopper HQ. She used to be at the number one spot on Hopper HQ’s Instagram Rich List, which essentially means she earns the most money for sponsored Instagram posts. At the time, she made an estimated $986,000 for a single post but has taken a tumble over the years.
KUWTK alone ran for over 14 years, and had over 20 seasons, which makes it one of the longest-running reality TV series in the States. It is reported that Kylie used the income from KUTWK and other acting gigs at the time to use $250,000 to launch Kylie Cosmetics, which has now helped her earn a $700 million valuation. Apart from KUWTK, Kylie has appeared in over 11 music videos, 13 television series, and even a cameo in Ocean’s 8 the movie, it is safe to assume she has earned quite a decent amount from her acting career as well.
Net Worth Spot estimates with almost 12 million subscribers on her YouTube channel alone, Kylie earns $936.15k a year at least based on conservative estimates of how monetized YouTube channels can earn anywhere between $3 to $7 per every one thousand video views. They also report her YouTube channel is worth somewhere around $3.74 million.
With a net worth estimated around $700,000 million, it is no surprise that Kylie owns quite a bit of property as well as cars to go with the uber-luxurious lifestyle she is known for. Celebrity Net Worth reports the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters spent a cool $12 million for her primary house which boasts an eight-bedroom, 11-bathroom Cape Code style mansion in Hidden Hills. Alongside this, she also owns a $36.5 million mansion in Holmby Hills, California as well as $15 million for a vacant plot in the neighborhood of her current primary residence.
Apart from real estate, Kylie has quite the car collection. ScreenRant reports the fashion mogul owns over 15 cars that are valued easily over the $5 million mark. Kylie owns a Black Rolls-Royce with custom pink interiors and tags which could push the value of the car over the average $300,000 price tag of a ‘regular’ Black Rolls-Royce.
Apart from her ultimate mom car, she also has a Lamborghini Urus ($200,000), a Bugatti Chiron ($3 million), a Lamborghini Aventador ($400,000), a Mercedes-AMG G63 ($150,000), a Tan Mercedes G-Wagon ($130,000), a Maroon Mercedes G-Wagon ($130,000), a Maybach ($200,000), an Ice Blue Rolls-Royce ($315,000), a Taupe Rolls-Royce ($315,000), a White Vintage Rolls-Royce, a LaFerrari ($1.4 million), a Ferrari 458 Italia Spider ($600,000), a 488 Ferrari Spider ($350,000), and two Range Rovers ($90,000 each).
