Kardashians clothing is just one of several ways the famous family is attempting to cash in on their still relatively recent celebrity rise. While some may argue that the sisters have no right to be famous and that we should not be paying any attention to them at all, I argue quite the contrary. The example the young ladies set both in their commitment to their fashions and their efforts to capitalize on their celebrity status are both fashion and economic models other young people would be wise to follow.
A Study in Self Promotion and Promotion of Self That headline might just be the most confusing paragraph title you have ever read but consider it carefully. The girls of the Kardashian family have made a living out of their desire to have a particular high-end fashion lifestyle.

Taking Lessons from the Bright Glare of the OJ Simpson Trial It probably was not lost on the trio how ridiculously absurd the media can be, how starved the industry can be for something – literally anything to write about. The very presence of glamour, fashion, and tabloid magazines at what should have been a very serious event (a.k.a. a murder trial) can not have possibly been missed by the immediate families of all involved. In particular, it would stand to reason that the more societal magazines would have paid much more attention to the dress and styles of the key players and their families.
The three Kardashian sisters could not have been at a more impressionable age during the trial – two of the girls around 16 years old and the youngest not quite a teenager. From the opening moments of the circus the three girls were witnesses to it all. Recall that the whole media fiasco started with the infamous Bronco chase which began at their house. OJ’s defense team without question had to have media consultants advising the team and families what to wear, how to carry themselves, what to say (and not say). The Kardashians clothing choice would be scrutinized given their father’s constant proximity to OJ (he sat next to OJ throughout the trial).
