Meet Kylie And Kendall Jenner, The New Faces Of The $65 Million Kardashian Machine


Much like Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian was once met with this criticism repeatedly: she’s famous for doing nothing.

Then, unlike Hilton, Kardashian started doing something.

She kept her nose clean — and got reality shows, endorsements, licensed brands and promotional-appearance contracts.

And she got her whole family in on the act.

Now, both Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are tabloid-movers in their own right — and the family machine (fronted by mumager Kris Jenner) is ready to present its next moneymakers.

They’re systematically inserting Kendall Jenner, 15, and Kylie Jenner, 13, into the spotlight.

July 2010: Kendall, 14 at the time, does a controversial bikini photo shoot. Kim Kardashian posts the photos on her blog.

January 2011: Kendall appears in an ad campaign for designer Marc Clark.

March 2011: Kendall and Kylie appear alongside their seasoned covergirl sisters in Redbook.

August 2011: Justin Bieber namecheck, check. The Biebs tweets Kendall Jenner to tell her his friend wants to date her; unlike when you did similar stuff in middle school, this transaction nearly shatters the Internet.

August 2011: Today, the sisters launched their blog and official site through the Celebuzz network.

We'll know they're famous when they're getting mocked on SNL.
