Kimberly Noel Kardashian, born October 21, 1980, is a U.S. celebrity most known for... being a celebrity. The second eldest daughter of famed attorney the late Robert Kardashian, Kim has become, along with longtime friend Creator/ParisHilton, a poster girl for {{socialite}}s who become famous simply for merely existing in the world into which they were born. She generally rose to fame as a fashion designer for Paris Hilton.

She's also known for her on-again, off-again relationship with [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball New Orleans Saints]] player Reggie Bush, a leaked sex tape featuring herself and R&B singer Ray J, her short 72-day marriage to [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation New Jersey Net]] Kris Humphries, and her role in the somewhat campy reality show ''Series/KeepingUpWithTheKardashians'' [and its {{Spinoff}}s -- three(!) so far], focusing on her extended family.

She is currently married to and has a child with Music/KanyeWest (hence her now calling herself Kim Kardashian West).

!!Tropes involving Kim Kardashian:

* BigBeautifulWoman: Clearly tried to invoke this trope with the flamboyant dresses (even more so than usual, that is) she wore on public appearances during her pregnancy which had led to a noticable weight gain. Also a TakeThat to people who bullied her into tears on the internet for her looks, even likening her to an orca for said weight gain.
* CoolBigSis: To her younger half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
* FanNickname:
** When she was dating Reggie Bush, some of the gossip rags gave them the nickname "Bush and Tush."
** A less flattering one is "Kimmode", due to her love of, um, water sports.
* HomePornMovie: She appeared in a leaked sex tape.
* MsFanservice: She once said "I'm comfortable with posing naked," which just about sums it up.
* PortmanteauCoupleName: "Kimye" for her and Kanye West.
* RealityTV: Several were made to chronicle her life and that of her family.
* ThemeNaming: Her mother [[MyNaymeIs Kris]] must think a lot of herself: she named her daughters [[MyNaymeIs Kourtney]], Kim and [[MyNaymeIs Khloe]]. The Kardashians have two half-siblings from their mother's remarriage: Kendall and Kylie. (The sole Kardashian son? [[OddNameOut Robert]], after their father.)
