should be rewarded for coming so far from being an amateur porn star to a socialite with her own reality TV show. In fact, the 27-year-old is a downright serious businesswoman who began her career in her late father, Robert Kardashian's marketing firm, Movie Tunes. She later became a stylist for pop celebrity Brandy, whose brother, Ray J, she shared a romance and sex tape with.
As they say, the rest is history. Following her sex tape scandal, Kim has risen from being Paris Hilton
's BFF to one of reality TV's most popular celebrity. Aside from her social status, Kim pursues her business of running a clothing line, Dash, with her sisters Khloe
. She's still on top of her game when it comes to styling, and recently, Kim showcased her styling skills on something different—a car.
"So far, designing is the most exciting thing I’ve done," Kim Kardashian told Car Domain, to whom she showed her white 2007 Range Rover, decorated with pink "princess" logos on the wheel’s center caps, pink emblems and color matched pink Brembo brake calipers. "I have a vision of what I want [the clothes] to look like in my mind and it’s fun to see it come alive on paper."
A custom white and pink grille replaced the original grille of the Range Rover, and the exterior body components were painted white. These, among several other customizations for the Range Rover were gifts for hosting a “House of Hype” Grammy party where Platinum Motorsport, Strut and JL Audio were sponsors of the event.
"They wanted to hook up my car to show at the gala," Kim recalled. "It was like a total dream. I love making my cars look good."
It seems that Kim's talents in styling have indeed diversified. She has managed to be creative in that one thing she adores--cars.
"People are always impressed by how much car stuff I know," she says. "My ex-husband loved exotic cars, and since then I’ve loved cars as much as I love clothes."
Moreover, she says that she asked for her Range Rover to have some pink accessories to show that it was indeed hers, and not her boyfriend's.
"I’ve always had the coolest cars, which sometimes seems like a guy should be driving them," Kim explained. "I wanted a car no boy would ever want to drive and for people to know a girl is driving such a cool car."
Having discovered her knack for designing not just clothes, Kim decided to make it an entrepreneurial endeavor.
"I collaborated with the guys at Platinum Motorsports and designed a line of rims that I’m calling 'The Princess Line,' and I will also be designing car accessories for women," Kim said. Women who do fancy accessorizing their rides would definitely be on the look out for this new Kardashian endeavor.
