To celebrate one half of Kimye turning thirty four today, we look back through the queen of reality television’s best moments
Happy birthday Kim Kardashian! It’s been a big year for Kim K, with 2014 bringing her a husband, a baby and front row tickets for them both to every show at Paris Fashion Week. With Khloe refusing to attend due to an ongoing feud, allegedly due to Kim’s diva fever (although potentially as a ratings booster for the next series of KUWTKD), it’s going to be a typically dramatic birthday for Kim. Whatever you think of the one woman publicity machine, join us as we pick out the times that Kim really outdid herself.
THE SEX TAPE
The Kim Kardashian sex tape (we’ll save you from the graphic photo). Without it you probably wouldn’t be reading this, because her fame probably wouldn’t have happened. Featuring the woman herself and one time lover Ray J getting down to it, Kim has managed to turn this into stardom in the style of her one time employer Paris Hilton.
WHEN SHE WORKED FOR PARIS
Not only did Kim used to be Paris Hilton’s best friend/personal assistant, when asked, Nicole Richie thought she was her maid.
ALL THE TIMES SHE CRIED
More specifically, when on a family holiday in Bora Bora, Kris pushed her in the ocean and she lost one of her $75,000 earrings, prompting a hysterical outburst that has been hard to forget. The best part? Kourtney’s reaction: ‘People are dying!’
PARIS FASHION WEEK
With the words ‘Reserved for Mademoiselle North West’ reverberating around Twitter for days afterwards, proud parents Kimye enjoyed some family time on the front row at Paris Fashion Week, hitting Givenchy, Balmain and more. The appearance of a new born baby at a high profile fashion event was questioned by some, whereas others were just too star-struck to notice.
The original Instagram addict, Kim K has over 20 million followers on Insta – that’s one third of the population of the UK! A must follow if you’re into hourly selfie updates. Rumour has it that her posts are going to be turned into a book, for all of the mega-fans who need photos of her life in hard copy.
Maybe the only superstar that has her own game, Kim Kardshian: Hollywood might be top of the list for most addictive app of the year. When released, it was the #1 free app on the App Store, capturing the hearts and minds of celebrity addicts everywhere.
Not only did the Bride wear Givenchy, but she and Kanye featured on the cover of American Vogue in the run up to the ceremony. Making for a more dramatic than usual season finale of Keeping up with the Kardashians, the wedding took place in Florence earlier this year.
