There’s more Kylie Jenner coming your way this summer.
E! has confirmed that the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is getting her own reality show, Life of Kylie, an eight-episode, half-hour docuseries premiering this summer. The show will follow the 19-year-old’s life as a “cosmetics mogul and social media powerhouse,” fashion designer and reality TV star, according to a release.
“The last couple years have been such an incredible journey with the support of my fans,” Kylie said in a statement. “This show will allow me to give them a peek inside all of the exciting things I am working on as well as some personal time with friends.”
The show will not only provide insight into her professional endeavors, but also her personal relationships, including time spent with BFF Jordyn Woods.
“Kylie’s beauty, business savvy and fashion icon status have made her one of the most famous and successful young woman on the planet,” said E! executive vp programming and development Jeff Olde. “Kylie has achieved so much at such a young age and we know the E! audience will be thrilled now that she is ready to share an inside look at her everyday life.”
It makes sense that the cable network behind Keeping Up With the Kardashians would want to, uh, keep up it’s relationship with Kylie, given her ongoing success as an entrepreneur and social media star (she has 91.1 million Instagram followers and 20.2 million Twitter followers).
Last December, Kylie hosted the first-ever pop-up shop for her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line — mobs of fans lined up for her highly coveted lip kits as early as 9 p.m. the night before the store’s 10 a.m. opening the following day.
As a fashion designer, she launched her first collection with sister Kendall Jenner for PacSun in 2012. Three years later, the sibling act collaborated with TopShop on a California-inspired capsule. Their line has since evolved into the lifestyle collection Kendall + Kylie, which sells on their website, at Shopbop.com, ASOS.com, at Neiman Marcus and in other select stores. In February, during New York Fashion Week, they showed LaunchOne, a limited edition athleisure capsule of just seven pieces —including bomber jackets, denim and paper bag waist sweatpants — that was lauded by the fashion press.
It’s no wonder online fashion database Polyvore named Kylie, who’s known for her skintight style, ever-changing hair and pouty lips, the most-searched-for female fashion icon of last year. She earned $18 million in 2016, making more than mom Kris ($11.5 million) and sisters Kendall ($17 million), Khloe ($15 million) and Kourtney ($10 million).
Of course, momager Kris made sure to congratulate her youngest offspring on social media with the #proudmama hashtag.
