Media personality, mogul and mom Kim Kardashian has landed the October/November cover of Fortune magazine, and was named among the brand’s 100 most powerful women in business this year.

Kardashian shared her cover girl moment with her 364 million Instagram followers on Oct. 4. She posed against a clear chair on the magazine’s cover clad in a black suit jacket and pants. One hand was tucked into her trousers while Kardashian offered up a serious pout for the camera. In her post, she credited her glam team, including hairstylist Davontae’ Washington and makeup artist Ariel Tejada.

“THE COVER OF FORTUNE MAGAZINE,” the mom of four wrote in her caption, which received tons of congratulatory feedback from her friends and fans.

“Let’s GOOOOO🔥🔥🔥,” TV personality La La Anthony cheered.

“Boss ❤️,” 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie Nicole Williams English applauded.

“Yassssss,” tennis GOAT Serena Williams gushed.

“Congrats Kim !! You deserve this and so much more ❤️❤️,” makeup artist Ash K Holm added.

“BEYOND!!!! ✨🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽✨,” SKIMS founding partner Emma Grede added.

Kardashian was recognized by Fortune not only for building her $4 billion shapewear empire, but also for her newest venture, SKKY Partners, a private equity firm that she cofounded with Jay Sammons.

“I’m excited to launch SKKY Partners to invest in the next generation of consumer brands, leveraging my experience founding and building global businesses and partnering with innovative companies to help them grow,” Kardashian stated in a press release last September when the firm launched.
