It’s no secret that reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian is an influencer. On Tuesday, it was announced that the 2022 SI Swimsuit model landed the cover of Time’s 100 Most Influential Companies of 2023 issue. The 42-year-old mom of four is cofounder of shapewear brand SKIMS, which according to an accompanying cover story, made $500 million last year.

“It started off with simply finding shapewear that was a skin tone that would match my color,” Kardashian told the outlet of her company, which was established in 2019. “I used to take my shapewear and dye it with tea bags and coffee in the bathtub.”

“TIME MAGAZINE COVER 2023,” Kardashian wrote on Instagram alongside the powerful photo. She wore an all-black ensemble and was photographed by Dana Scruggs as she posed with her arms behind her head.

Tons of Kardashian’s 360 million followers on the platform, including celebrity friends and fans alike, chimed in to the comments section with supportive feedback.

“STUNNING,” 2023 SI Swimsuit rookie Nicole Williams English wrote.

“BOSS 🔥🔥🔥,” Andrew Fitzsimons applauded.

“MAJOR 👸🏻🔥🙌🏼,” Natalie June Halcro added.

“A 👏 leader 🔥,” Amanda Hirsch noted.

“You are 🪄,” sister Khloe Kardashian shared.

Additional companies that made Time’s list include Taco Bell, TikTok, IBM and Disney.
