Kylie Jenner gained most of her fame thanks to the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians in which she has been involved since she was 10.

While starring in the show, she also began her modeling career as a teenager. She has already appeared on hundreds of glossy covers and as part of numerous advertising campaigns.

It's the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything.

Well, we must give Kylie proper respect – she knows how to make social networks work for her. Moreover, there is a bit of irony in this, because, in the ranking of the youngest billionaires, she overtook one of their creators!
