Love them or hate them, there’s no denying the Kardashian clan is a modern-day phenomenon. For the past decade, they’ve steadily built an empire that has taken the world by storm. From entertainment to fashion, cosmetics to publishing, their accomplishments and credits are as storied as they are notorious. No doubt each was born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but each has turned that silver into platinum and, in the process, they've become America’s unofficial first family.

Middle sister Kim is perhaps the most renowned of the Kardashian clan. The one-time assistant to Paris Hilton rose to fame after the release of her now-infamous sex tape, Kim is a model, spokesperson, actress and socialite like none other. She has appeared in feature films as well as network reality shows like Dancing with the Stars and America's Next Top Model. Along with Khloe and Kourtney, she penned the New York Times bestseller 'Kardashian Konfidential.' She has her own line of fragrances and is one of the most sought after brand influencers on social media owing to her tens of millions of followers. Married to music mogul Kanye West the celebrity couple is perhaps the most widely photographed in all the world. She is so popular that her fans are even fascinated by the contents of her refrigerator.

Kris's youngest daughters are just as much of a force to be reckoned with. Kendall is one of the most successful fashion models in the world who has walked for such brands as Marc Jacobs, Victoria's Secret, Pucci, Michael Kors and Vera Wang. She is also a brand ambassador for Estee Lauder cosmetics and has created clothing lines for PacSun and TopShop with her little sister.

Surprisingly, the youngest of Kris's girls is by the far the most financially successful. In 2015 Kylie launched her own cosmetics line called Kylie Lip Kits. The following year it was rebranded as 'Kylie Cosmetics.' Its continued success led to Forbes magazine dubbing her the world's youngest self-made billionaire.
