The shoes on her feet, she bought it! Kylie Jenner is not even 18 yet, but she is already an independent woman. The 17-year-old reality star revealed in a new interview with UK InStyle that she has been paying her own bills for years.
"My mom cut me off financially three years ago," the owner of her own $2.7 million house told the mag of momager Kris Jenner. "I pay for everything — my car, my gas, and food, as well as my clothes."
The youngest of the expansive Kardashian-Jenner brood finds the money to pay for said expenses with her own growing empire. In addition to her appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and its accompanying spinoff shows, Jenner now serves as a brand ambassador for Nip + Fab skincare, has a collection at PacSun and a book called Rebels: City of Indra with sister Kendall Jenner, and various branded products including OPI nail polishes, jewelry, and shoes.
Following in her famous sisters' footsteps, Jenner has become a bit of a fashion icon among her teen fans, promoting for her now-infamous pouty lips and an edgier look.
"I think my style is a little bit darker thanks to my mom," she told InStyle. "There are a lot of skulls around her house and the furniture is mostly black and white. She wears a lot of black too, and I think that’s definitely rubbed off on me… feel like I dress like Khloe on my down days and Kim when I’m going out. If I’m just running out I’ll throw on a cute T-shirt, a pair of leggings and my Timberland boots. If I’m dressing up I love Céline and Saint Laurent, or for accessories Alaïa, Givenchy or Gianvito Rossi."
It wasn't always so. "Sometimes I look back at myself on previous seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and think, 'Why didn’t you let your hair down then, or put on something nicer?'" added the star. "I think now I’m much more aware when the cameras are around and I do doll up a lot more."
While Jenner may be putting more effort into her appearance as of late, she revealed to InStyle that she is putting little time into maintaining her trim figure.
"I haven’t worked out in two and a half years," Jenner said. "I’m living out my youth not doing any exercise and eating what I want, which is pretty bad. I’m into yellow rice — you just cook it for 15 minutes, it tastes so good."
