Kylie Jenner found her fame through her family.
The family came to fame on a very popular reality show.Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been running since 2007, making it almost twelve years old. It's one of the most viewed reality TV phenomena of all time.

Not bad for the tender age of twenty one.Kylie has grown from being a fan favorite on the show, to a social media queen and entrepreneurial businesswoman.
She's the undisputed queen of Instagram.
On top of this, Jenner is also a mom.
Kylie has a truly multifaceted career.
Kylie Cosmetics is one of the most successful brands on the planet.

Others had a different issue.Many quibbled with the "self-made" status of Kylie's fortune. It's certainly true that if she wasn't a member of the world's most famous family, it's unlikely she'd have made the Forbes list.
While it's true she's been clever with her line, some believe she'd be nothing without her status.
