Twitter Users Diss ‘Time’ For Labeling Kylie, Kendall Jenner ‘Influential Teens,’ Polyvore Data Backed Sisters’ Popularity

14237990983_b08d4372e6_bTime magazine has named Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner as one of the most of influential teens of 2014, but not everyone agrees. Social media users reacted almost violently to the list released, claiming they cannot believe the Jenners would ever be in the same list as Malala Yousafzai.

Twitter users cannot hold in their disbelief that Kylie and Kendall would ever be on the same category as the daughters of President Obama and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Malala Yousafzai. On the part of Time Magazine, they believe that the sisters are teens to watch out for because one is a budding model taking over the fashion world while another is an entrepreneur at the tender age of 17.

‘What’s wrong with this magazine?,’ wrote Twitter user @missyp6343. Another twitter user thinks its laughable that Kylie is being compared to Malala Yousafzai. Other teens from the Entertainment industry who were included in the list were Chloe Moretz and Lorde.

But while social media users, especially the teens, think Kendall and Kylie Jenner are misrepresenting them and not as influential as Time says they are, Kris Jenner already released a theory as to why Kylie can be very influential, surpassing even her half-sister, Kim Kardashian, and her statements just might be backed by real stats too.

“One of Kylie’s defining moments was showing up at Kim’s wedding with blue hair, eventually leading to her own hair-extension line,” says the momager. “She drove herself to the beauty shop and did it herself. Kylie changed it back to black after a few months, but fans wanted the blue hair back.” She also said that Kylie has a very accessible look, and a popular one at that, so even her older sisters are asking for her fashion advice.

Kris’s statements are backed by data too. According to data released by fashion site Polyvore, which is an analysis of its 20 million monthly unique users, Kylie’s popularity is trending up compared to her more outspoken and visible sisters in the past two years. On the other hand, Kendall is holding her own, being a model. The styles of the Jenner sisters are polar opposites but the two of them have their own huge following.

How Kim’s Half-Sister Kylie Became the Most Influential Kardashian

kylie-jenner

The ultrafamous Kardashian clan is seeing upheaval in terms of power and influence. To most of the general public—those without a permanent bookmark to TMZ.com—Kim Kardashian is the most well-known sister. Even her involvement in a silly iPhone game brought in $200 million. But Kim’s fashion influence among young women is quickly trailing off, losing steam to her youngest two sisters.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner—Kim’s teenage half-sisters—are the children of mom Kris Jenner and Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner. Kendall is a professional model, with several magazine covers and runway appearances. And yet 17-year-old Kylie is actually more influential among teenage consumers.

According to data provided by fashion site Polyvore, an analysis of its 20 million monthly unique users shows that Kylie has been gradually trending up compared with her sisters in the past two years. As a haven for women 18 to 24, Polyvore’s users represent the shoppers on the edge of the fashion industry—and those with a parent-paid credit card. Below is the daily search interest for each of the five sisters since July 2012. You can see the two spikes are around Kim’s wedding to Kanye West and Kendall’s work as a rising model during New York Fashion Week:

 

“One of Kylie’s defining moments was showing up at Kim’s wedding with blue hair, eventually leading to her own hair-extension line,” says Kris Jenner, Kylie’s “momager.” “She drove herself to the beauty shop and did it herself.” Kylie changed it back to black after a few months, “but fans wanted the blue hair” back. Kris says her daughter’s style has taken off because “young women that age can go to their own closets and put it together.” It’s a “very accessible look.” (Her line of hair extensions is called Kylie Hair Kouture, borrowing the family’s K-based naming convention.)

Kylie is already a millionaire. It’s reported she makes $5,000 per episode on the family’s show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, despite her reluctance to be on camera much. She gets paid thousands of dollars for promotional tweets and has done some modeling on the runway, in magazines including Seventeen, and for Sears (SHLD). Kylie also has her own endorsement contracts with Opi nail polish and PacSun (PSUN) clothing. Since she’s too busy working to go to high school, she’s now home schooled instead.

Kris doesn’t criticize any of Kylie’s fashion picks. “I let her go with it, and sometimes she can make her own mistakes, but that’s a good thing,” she says. “She’s 17 years old and has the rest of her life to mess around.”

Kylie was the third-most relevant Kardashian sister two years ago but has slowly climbed her way up the ranks. The chart below shows the same search interest data, but smoothed out to show the trends more clearly. Kylie’s self-proclaimed “girly goth” and “super edgy” looks have inspired countless admirers and copycats—including big sis Kim, who donned some #KylieSwag two months ago. “I realized two to three years ago, my older daughters were asking Kylie for fashion advice,” Kris says. And, of course, you can find a lot of these looks in the family’s Steve Madden fashion line. “Kylie decided she had this edgy style she wanted to bring to the table, and she wasn’t satisfied going along with what Kendall wanted.”

 

Among younger fans, high-fashion Kendall has been more popular than Kim for the past couple of years. Kim dropped to No. 3 after her wedding hoopla was over—and has stayed there since. Kim turns 34 later this month, and in the minds and purses of young female consumers, she’s already been surpassed by sisters half her age. From Mom’s point of view, that’s the beauty of the machine: “The girls all are different heights, shapes, sizes. There is something for everyone.”

The family business is minting money. In 2010 they brought in an estimated $65 million for Keeping Up With the Kardashians, along with spinoffs, mentioning brands in tweets, pitching weight-loss products, opening clothing stores, and endorsing Skechers (SKX) shoes. There’s also personal appearance fees, staged photos, fragrance deals, best-selling books, and a lifestyle collection at Sears. A show renewal in 2012 earned the family another $40 million. And the family’s fashion empire had retail sales of $600 million in 2013, bringing the sisters a cut of about $30 million.

But Kylie is the youngest child; the future of the family business relies on her. Season 10 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians started filming on Monday, and it will be interesting to see if Kylie ends up playing a bigger role than in the past. “It’s much more an emotional question than a business question,” Kris says. “It will make me sad if she moves out.” Still, Kylie probably wouldn’t stray too far: “We spend every waking moment together—she’s a very supervised kid.” Plus, Kris notes, “Kourtney is 35 years old, [and] I deal with her stuff every day.”

Kendall Jenner Not Interested In Dating: ‘She isn’t interested in becoming one half of a power couple’

kendall_jenner_cannes_2014_cropped

Kendall Jenner has been subject to a lot of crazy dating rumours since her modelling career took off. Late last week, the 18-year old model had been linked to Justin Bieber and Chris Brown. Now, Kendall is reportedly dating French Montana. However, sources close to the model claim she’s too busy with her career to even be in a high-profile relationship.

Unlike her sister Kim Kardashian who has been linked to a number of A-list celebrities, Kendall Jenner isn’t following the same steps. In fact, a source close to the “Keeping Up with the Kardashian” star states she doesn’t need a celebrity boyfriend.

“Kendall is concentrating on her career. She isn’t interested in becoming one half of a power couple; she’s more low-key than that,” stated a report by the Independent.

High-profile boyfriends aren’t what Kendall is after but high-profile fashion shows. The 18-year old model has gone from one catwalk to the next since the New York Fashion Week to Milan Fashion Week. Though she’s busy with her career, the model still managed to insert time for her boy-friends, Chris Brown and Justin Bieber.

Late last week, Kendall was spotted in Paris with Justin Bieber enjoying champagne at the Ferdi restaurant. The “date” prompted a number of reports claiming Kendall was the reason behind the “Jelena” split. Aside from Justin and Selena, Kendall has been linked to another singer, Chris Brown who is dating Karrueche Tran.

Kendall has not spoken up about the dating reports instead has focused on her modelling career. Jonathan Cheban, a close friend of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, spoke to US Weekly and cleared up the rumours as well. Contrary to reports that Kendall is dating Bieber, Cheban has only one key word.

“The key word is friend,” stated Cheban.

Kendall Jenner however is not the only Kardashian star hounded by dating rumours. Kendall’s youngest sibling, Kylie is reportedly dating rapper Tyga. The two had prompted dating reports after they had been spotted together on numerous occasions. Yet, Tyga had slammed such reports on his Twitter account stating he’s only good friends with the Jenner sisters and the rest of the Kardashian clan.

Now Kylie Jenner turns businesswoman as she announces her own line of hair extensions

kylie_jenner-bussiness

With her sister Kendall taking the modelling world by storm, it was only a matter of time before Kylie found her own direction.

The youngest Jenner girl has discovered her entrepreneurial streak – much like sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney – by releasing a line of hair extensions.

The 17-year-old took to her Instagram on Monday to announce a partnership with Bellami Hair, saying: ‘Kylie Hair Kouture coming soon…sooo excited follow @bellamihair for more details!’

Kylie Jenner Launches Hair Extensions Line as Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 10 Filming Starts

Kylie Jenner is known for her penchant for switching up hairstyles. Just in recent months she’s gone from blue to black, from a bob to long—and there was even a birthday buzz cut thrown in there.
So Kylie’s latest business venture—a line of hair extensions called Kylie Hair Kouture—makes perfect sense, considering she never keeps the same hairstyle for too long.
The 17-year-old announced her partnership with clip-in hair extension brand Bellami Hair on Instagram, posting a picture of her sporting some Rapunzel-length locks with the caption: “Kylie Hair Kouture coming soon…sooo excited follow @bellamihair for more details!”
While Kylie and her sister Kendall Jenner have teamed up with fashion labels like Steve Madden and PacSun before, this marks Kylie’s first solo beauty collab.

But of course she isn’t the first in the family to take on a hair care endeavor. Her older sisters Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian will be teaming up with Farouk Systems for a new line of hair tools and styling products called Kardashian Beauty, set to launch in the spring of 2015.
Kylie Hair Kouture also comes on the heels of the filming of new episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians—which is in its tenth season now. Kourtney posted a picture on her Instagram of the three elder Kardashian sisters with the caption, “Sisters back to filming! Season 10! Day 2…”
We’d say between Kylie Hair Kouture and Kardashian Beauty, it’s never been easier to replicate the Kardashian/Jenner clan’s famous raven tresses.

Justin Bieber & Kendall Jenner’s Secret Dates Revealed

justin-hides-his-face

Oh no! Apparently Justin and Kendall’s secret rendezvous in Paris wasn’t the first time they stepped out together behind Selena’s back. Justin has reportedly been texting and hanging out with Kendall ever since he reunited with Sel in June!
Selena Gomez, 22, was furious when she found out about Justin Bieber‘s intimate dinner date with Kendall Jenner, 18, in Paris, so she must be truly devastated now that a new report claims that the Biebs, 20, has been carrying on a secret relationship with her ex-friend Kendall for months!

Selena made Justin promise that he would cut all ties with Kendall and her sister Kylie Jenner, 17, after she discovered flirty texts from the sisters on his phone in April 2014. But it looks like Justin broke yet another promise to his on-again, off-again love.

Not only has the Biebs “been texting Kendall the whole time” but “Paris wasn’t the first time that they secretly had dinner together,” an insider tells InTouch magazine.

So shocking — poor Selena! And perhaps the worst part is that Justin has apparently been lying to her all along. In fact, he lied to Selena about his private Paris meetup with Kendall, telling her that he was “grabbing dinner with his security team” instead, according to InTouch.

“Justin admitted it and insists they’re just friends, but Selena doesn’t believe him, and they had a screaming match over it,” the source says. “She feels completely humiliated.”

Even if Justin truly does think of Kendall as a friend, Selena has her doubts about the gorgeous model’s intentions.

“Selena doesn’t trust her motives,” another source revealed to Us Weekly, and as a result, she and Justin “fought and split.”

Despite all their makeups and breakups, Us reports that Justin is still not ready to give up on his relationship with Selena; “He wants her back,” a source told the mag.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Selena forget about Justin for good after this betrayal? Let us know your thoughts below!

Kendall Jenner Jaden Smith: Rob Kardashian’s ‘KUWTK’ Sister Hangs with Sister Kylie’s Rumored Love in Paris

jeden-smith-2Kendall Jenner recently got very silly while hanging out with family pal, Jaden Smith!
Taking a break from strutting her stuff on runways during Paris Fashion Week, Justin Bieber’s dinner buddy called on Will Smith’s son and her other friend, Hailey Baldwin for some good fun. And the trio seemed very happy while spending time together in the City of Lights.

“Pay no mind,” wrote Jenner, alongside the picture of her and Smith strolling on a Parisian street.
The snapshot, posted to the leggy model’s Instagram, showed Smith in a mushroom themed top hat. And Jenner had on a black bomber coat and a hilarous hat full of what looked like Thanksgiving turkey legs.
Glad to see the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star’s funny side?
Smith has been a longtime family friend to the Kardashians, especially his peer, Kylie. But lately, Jada Pinkett Smith’s son has kept it low-key when it comes to appearing with the reality TV family in public.
However, Smith and Kylie Jenner did supposedly make out at sister, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding!

The longtime rumored teen lovebirds were totally “making out” at Kimye’s wedding reception, said a source to E! News in May. What better place to share a smooch or two than a romantic Italian wedding?

To add more fuel to the romance fire, Smith reportedly left Florence with the Kardashian clan.
But the youngest “KUWTK” sibling has denied anything romantic with the “After Earth” actor.

“Jaden’s a close friend of mine,” tweeted the teen designer at the time. “Wasn’t caught making out with anyone at my sisters wedding lol.”

The two teens have been friends for a long time, but have and may never admit to dating each other. And Smith seems to fit right into the Jenner and Kardashian group just fine, too.

Kendall Jenner Victoria Secret Angel- Will The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashian’ Star Become The Newest Lingerie Model?

kendall-jenner

Could a reality star be the next Victoria Secret fashion model? Kendall Jenner might be getting her own pair of wings as the lingerie company is reportedly interested in the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star.

New York Daily News is reporting that Victoria Secret has taken an interest in the star to make her one of their angels, after seeing her appearance during New York Fashion Week.

“They’d love to lock in a contract with her,” the source revealed to In Touch Weekly.

Kendall, who has been trying to make a name for herself in the fashion industry, might have just scored a very coveted spot amongst some of the supermodel elites.

Jenner will also appear in a book of photography called Angels, which was shot by Russell James a photographer for the lingerie brand, which could be another clue into her taking the spot amongst the angels. She will appear in the pages of the fashion book alongside other VS angels including Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, Karlie Kloss, and Candice Swanepoel.

It looks like if Victoria Secret approached Kendall to model for them the starlet wouldn’t turn down the opportunity, as she told Cosmopolitan back in 2013 that modeling during the companies annual angel fashion show would be her “dream modeling job.”

Well, it looks like the stars dreams are about to come true.

Kendall has been building her fashion resume as she just walked in the Chanel, Marc Jacobs, and Givenchy runway shows, and according to In Touch, the company got interested in Kim Kardashian’s sister after “all the buzz she got from walking in New York Fashion Week.”

Kendall Jenner is about to eclipse big sister Kim Kardashian: So what is the teen model’s secret?

kendall_jenner_cannes_2014_cropped

The stunning teenager has come straight from an American reality TV show to wow fashionistas across the globe and is now so sought after for next season’s catwalk shows that already she is being offered starring roles for January – the biggest at London Fashion Week.

She is, with no exaggeration, the most popular celebrity on the planet at the moment – yet we know little about her – other than she is Kim Kardashian’s little sister, part of the Kardashian/Jenner family dynasty that is currently at the heart of the show business industry.
And she is about to eclipse her elder sibling.

Just 18-years-old, the daughter of Kris Jenner and her estranged former athlete husband Bruce, Kendall is already amassed a fortune of £4 million, that though, is about to get much more impressive.

Kendall Jenner: the Kardashian sister who’s ‘too fat’ for modelling

kendall-jenner-2563With her fellow models putting the catty into catwalk, the up-and-coming Jenner seems to be taking their remarks to heart.

Lost in Showbiz cannot help but be intrigued by the saga of Kim Kardashian’s half-sister Kendall Jenner and her nascent modelling career. It all appeared to be going so well: runway appearances for Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger and Diane von Furstenberg. And yet, reports suggested that, behind the scenes, Jenner had been the victim of a bullying campaign, with other models putting cigarette butts in her drink, and one writing an open letter claiming that her success is down to designers “milking her fame”. One magazine cover suggested that, at 8st 7lbs, Jenner had been branded “too fat for the runway”, and “needs to lose 10lbs”, alongside a photograph of her that appeared to show some cellulite on the back of her legs.

The rumours were subsequently denied by Jenner’s mother, but by then the damage had been done. LiS’s head was reeling and its jaw scraping the floor in astonishment. The fashion world! Who would have thought it was a broiling mass of mean-spirited bitching, a miserable, grasping, venal place, predicated on shallowness, in which women are paraded around and pitted against each other like animals in a fight outside a rural pub, their body images irreparably damaged by the setting of unattainable physical goals and the inevitable shame heaped on those who fail to meet them? Before the scales fell from its eyes, LiS had always assumed it was a cosy but empowering utopia of sisterly chumminess and good feeling, where “come one come all, but come as you are – it’s what’s inside that counts!” was very much the motto. Look at its ambassadors. Naomi Campbell? She seems nice. Karl Lagerfeld, with his high collars and his mouth permanently pursed in a cat’s arse of disapproval, ever-ready to offer his opinion on which women in the public eye are too fat. Do they seem like the kind of people who would thrive in a world of malice and superficiality?

Thankfully, Kendall Jenner has come up with the perfect riposte: “Her sister Khloe [Kardashian] is lining up sessions with a personal trainer and a better diet.” Lost in Showbiz can only gawp in admiration and offers a round of applause. Well done! Get yourself on a diet! That’ll certainly show your alleged tormentors that you don’t care what they say! Send out a strong message to the bullies: you’ve got a point and I’m very sorry!
