Kimberly "Kim" Kardashian West (born Kimberly Noel Kardashian; October 21, 1980) is an American celebrity [[FamousForBeingFamous most known for...]] well, being a celebrity.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California; the second eldest daughter of the late Robert Kardashian, famed attorney from the O.J. Simpson trial (later replaced by the even more famous and also-late Johnnie Cochran), Kim has become, along with longtime boss/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 first gained media attention through her friendship with (and as a fashion designer for) Hilton, but she received wider notice after a 2003 sex tape with her former boyfriend, R&B singer Ray J was leaked in 2007. Later that year, she and her family began to appear in the reality television series ''Series/KeepingUpWithTheKardashians''. Its success has led to the creation of {{Spinoff}}s focusing on her extended family.

Like Hilton, Kardashian and her family have been known for a great amount of [[{{Hatedom}} hatred]] due to their status of famous for being famous, and the world just seems to love that.

She's also known for her on-again, off-again relationship with [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball New Orleans Saints]] player Reggie Bush, and her short 72-day marriage to [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation New Jersey Net]] Kris Humphries. She is currently married to and has two kids with Music/KanyeWest (hence her now calling herself Kim Kardashian West).

!!Tropes involving Kim Kardashian:
* AmbiguouslyBrown: She's of partial Armenian descent through her father (her mother is white), and ultimately does consider herself white, but because of her dark olive complexion, she was occasionally mistaken for Latina.
* AttentionWhore: Especially since they fake most reality scenes. She and her family are known to have staged multiple controversies just for this purpose...even some of her fans of the show will admit that her proposals were staged.
* 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 noticeable 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.
* FamousForBeingFamous: Ah, yes, ''Series/TheSoup'' has a field day with her on this one. Of course, many still cite OJ Simpson's trial as the root of it all.
* 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.
* HappilyMarried: With Music/KanyeWest of all people.
* HasAType[=/=]RaceFetish: [[https://celebrity.yahoo.com/blogs/celeb-news/kim-kardashian-admits-she-s-always-had-a-type--shares-her-dad-s-advice-about-interracial-dating-193611108.html She says that she has always been attracted to black males since she was a teenager]].
* HomePornMovie: She appeared in a leaked sex tape.
* LikeMotherLikeDaughter: A lot of her narcissism and attention-seeking stints were derived from her mother Kris Jenner.
* MaleGaze: Take a wild guess which particular part of her the camera focuses on.
* MsFanservice: She once said "I'm comfortable with posing naked," which just about sums it up.
* {{Narcissist}}: Taking an overload of selfies is the epitome today.
* RealityTV: Several were made to chronicle her life and that of her family.
* ThemeNaming: Her mother Kris named her daughters [[MyNaymeIs Kourtney]], Kim and [[MyNaymeIs Khloe]]. The Kardashians have two half-siblings from their mother's remarriage: Kendall and Kylie. Though when her former stepmother came out as transgender, she went with the name "Caitlyn" instead of "Kaitlyn". (The sole Kardashian son? [[OddNameOut Robert]], after their father.)
* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: Inverted. She is a white woman who only dates black men and married one. See HasAType above.
