Kimberly Noel Kardashian, born October 21, 1980, is a U.S. celebrity most known for... being a celebrity. And her impressive Hydrogel injections.

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 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 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.
* HappilyMarried: With KanyeWest of all people.
* HasAType: [[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.
* MsFanservice: She once said "I'm comfortable with posing naked," which just about sums it up.
* 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.)
