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.

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.
* 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.
* FamousForBeingFamous: Ah, yes, ''Series/TheSoup'' has a field day with her on this one.
* 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.
* 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 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.
