Celebrities might seem like they're just like us, but one look at their lavish lifestyles and it's clear they really just are not. Wonderwall.com is taking a look at the life of reality TV star-turned-beauty mogul Kylie Jenner — who celebrates her 24th birthday on Aug. 10, 2021 — and revealing some of the many ways she's nothing like the rest of us, starting with her net worth. The mother of one has earned hundreds of millions in revenue thanks to the success of her Kylie Cosmetics brand. Forbes reported in 2018 that she was on track to become the "youngest-ever self-made billionaire" and in 2019, Forbes reported that she'd reached the milestone: At 21, she became a billionaire at a younger age than even Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, who was 23 when he did it. However, the publication in 2020 rescinded Kylie's youngest self-made billionaire status — but reported that her net worth was still an impressive $700 million. Either way, she's worth more than we'll ever see in our lifetimes!

Only a celebrity would have a wax figure of their mom at home… right?! In August 2020, Kylie Jenner revealed on her Instagram Story that a wax figure of momager Kris Jenner "came to live with her" and has found a home on a chair at her bar. "She's mine now. I don't want to get any texts or phone calls from my sisters after this. She's mine," Kylie said while showing off the figure. The creation, which made its debut at a Madame Tussauds exhibit in New York City in May 2019, was made "for Kris to enjoy with her family and friends." For reference, a Madame Tussauds wax figure costs nearly $200,000 to make.
In May 2021, Daily Mail reported that Kylie Jenner purchased a five-acre lot in the elite Los Angeles County neighborhood of Hidden Hills on which she plans to build a mansion near mom Kris Jenner and sister Khloe Kardashian. The price tag? A cool $15 million! Kylie, according to Variety, plans to develop an 18,000-square-foot mega-property there. This impressive addition to her real estate portfolio came less than two weeks after she moved into an estate in L.A.'s Holmby Hills valued at $36.5 million. Sheesh!
With parents like this — a makeup mogul mom and an acclaimed rapper dad — odds are you're probably going to grow up with some of the finer things in life. That's definitely the case for little Stormi Webster. When the toddler turned 3 in February 2021, she received a whopping 17 pairs of shoes from Nike! The shoes included Nike Dunks, Air Jordans and pairs made in collaboration with notable names like Off-White and Stussy. The price range for each pair of shoes? Anywhere from $100 to more than $200!
We're all familiar with Birkenstocks sandals and Hermès Birkin bags… but a collaboration between the two? Of course Kylie Jenner got involved. In February 2021, "Birkinstocks" — Birkstenstocks shoes made from destroyed Birkin bags — were being buzzing about on the Internet. As to be expected, they were difficult for anyone to get their hands on. But of course Kylie secured a pair. The price of these sandals — only 10 pairs were made — wasn't anything to scoff at either: They cost between $34,000 and $76,000. Yup, you read that correctly.
In March 2021, Page Six reported that Kylie Jenner donated $500,000 to help fund a hospital lounge for teen cancer patients. The beauty mogul's money helped create the "Hey, I'm Here For You Teen Lounge" at Nashville's Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in honor of singer-songwriter Harry Hudson — one of her friends. Harry, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2017, had the lounge named after his cancer charity and 2020 studio album. "I am so grateful for Kylie's friendship and the impact she's had on my life and my cancer journey… She has always been there for me, and together, we wanted to figure out a way to be there for other young people who are battling this disease," Harry said in a statement.
Talk about a business deal! In November 2019, Kylie Jenner sold a 51% stake in her then-four-year-old beauty company, Kylie Cosmetics, to Coty. The price for that slice? A cool $600 million.
In February 2020, Kylie Jenner took to her Instagram Story to showcase her extensive and impressive handbag collection (see it here), which is worth well above six figures! The collection, which is housed in what's more reminiscent of a room than a closet, boasts just about every luxury purse you could imagine — from variations of the Chanel flap bag to an array of Hermès Birkin bags. We seriously could not imagine having even a fraction of Kylie's purse collection!
So generous! In March 2020, while vacationing in the Bahamas with her closest gal pals and daughter Stormi Webster, Kylie Jenner rented out a newly built home that cost a reported $10,000 a day. The six-bedroom Villa Rosalita estate on Harbour Island, according to TMZ, features master and guesthouse suites with their own private terraces and alfresco showers, an open-air dining area, a pool and tropical garden, multiple verandas with views of the Caribbean Sea and a full staff to cater to the ladies' every whim.
Kylie Jenner is so famous that when the world learned she'd just tried milk with her cereal for the first time, it made national headlines. Kylie took to Twitter in September 2018 and shared that she'd been eating cereal dry her whole life but had just decided to try the treat with milk. She called the event "life changing." Outlets everywhere picked up the story, proving once again that the Kardashian-Jenners might as well live on a different planet than the rest of us.
We wish we could be Stormi Webster! In January 2020, Kylie Jenner shared via Instagram that she was creating a makeup collaboration with her daughter — Kylie Cosmetics' Kylie Jenner x Stormi Webster — to mark the toddler's 2nd birthday The collection, which was inspired by a then-1-year-old Stormi, featured mini lipsticks, powders and lip glosses in pastel-hued and butterfly-embellished packaging. "I think I've been waiting for this moment since the day I found out I was pregnant," Kylie wrote on Instagram.
Kylie Jenner's clothes and makeup get their own hotel room when she travels, she revealed in a November 2018 vlog on her YouTube channel. "So, me and [my boyfriend] Travis [Scott] have our own room, and then I always get a separate room … for all my wardrobe and makeup — and also for [our daughter] Stormi so she can play around and have more space when we're in hotel rooms since she always travels with us," the doting mom said of life on the road with the rapper. Kylie also revealed that Travis had a playroom set up for their baby girl at the venue on every stop of his "Astroworld" tour.
Kylie Jenner loves to spoil daughter Stormi Webster with luxury items. In the fall of 2020, the makeup mogul shared images of her adorable tot sporting a baby pink Hermès backpack worth $12,000. But former "The Real Housewives of New York" star Bethenny Frankel was not having any of it, commenting on the post, "I never say anything about this stuff but this is the most transparent humble brag I've seen yet. It's everything wrong with everything." Bethenny, who received criticism for her remark, defended her stance, responding, "I'm no stranger to an @Hermes_Paris bag & have a daughter & luxury cars, but flaunting (under the guise of a back to school post) during a pandemic & the greatest unemployment crisis in our lifetime is a choice." We suppose this type of criticism comes with the territory when you're one of Hollywood's wealthiest stars.
Imagine having a friend like Kylie Jenner… In October 2020, in celebration of "WAP" rapper Cardi B's 28th birthday, the reality TV star and beauty mogul gifted her friend an extravagant item — a light blue Hermès Birkin bag! "Look at this Birkin. Thank you, Kylie Jenner!" Cardi wrote on Instagram. "Bing Bylie! She goes by King Kylie, but you know we've gotta B, B, B. Powder blue." The coveted status symbol ranges from $40,000 to $500,000 for a single purse!
Regular people have to plan ahead for trips across the country, but not Kylie Jenner! The makeup mogul once hopped on a private jet to visit boyfriend Travis Scott in Houston "for a few hours" after they "got in a little fight." "We were fighting, and I was like, I just need to go. I didn't tell anyone where or why," she told GQ in July 2018. "Just because we're a family now. When we fight, it's usually just because we've been away from each other for too long and we didn't see each other for like two weeks. And we have Stormi now, and I can't travel with her. She's too young. So it's harder to see each other, but I was like, I just need to go and fix this and go back."
In March 2020 amidst the coronavirus pandemic, Kylie Jenner was one of the celebrities who donated to relief efforts. The Kylie Cosmetics founder gave $1 million toward the purchase of medical gear to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
Kylie Jenner gives a whole new meaning to the word "influencer." Snapchat lost $1.5 billion in market value after the reality star tweeted her growing disdain for the platform's redesign in February 2018. "Sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore? Or is it just me… ugh this is so sad," she tweeted. Less than 24 hours later, Snapchat's stock plummeted 7%, equaling a $1.5 billion loss, according to Reuters.
Kylie Jenner celebrated the birth of her daughter, Stormi Webster, in a big way: with tens of thousands of dollars' worth of floral arrangements! The makeup mogul received flowers worth more than $60K from celebrities, friends and family when her daughter arrived in February 2018. The celebratory bouquets included a $5,000 arrangement from Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West and a $3,900 to $5,100 floral display that spelled out the word "Stormi."
These days, many women (or their partners) treat themselves to a gift after they deliver a baby. Three weeks after giving birth to her daughter, Stormi, Kylie Jenner took to Instagram to show off what she described as her "push present" — a shiny black Ferrari LaFerrari model with butterfly doors and a plush red interior that, according to Car and Driver magazine, starts at $1.42 million and is no longer in production.
Kylie Jenner took her role as the queen of social media to new heights in July 2018 when she launched her own custom face filter on Instagram.

The power of Kylie!
