Vogue“There’s not too many things that are se­cret, I guess,” ad­mits Kar­dashian. “I’m so used to be­ing pub­lic that it doesn’t re­ally bother me. It’s just who I am.” Asked to con­sider how she fig­ures out the bal­ance be­tween her pub­lic and pri­vate per­sonas, she replies with a laugh, “Do I have a pri­vate per­sona?”

Kar­dashian seems acutely aware that for all the peo­ple who fol­low her fam­ily with in­tense fer­vour, just as many con­demn them as the crass em­bod­i­ment of nar­cis­sism run amok. Yet she’s learnt to stop be­ing both­ered by the lat­ter.

“We’re not do­ing a movie role, we’re not por­tray­ing a char­ac­ter,” she says. “We’ve been do­ing this so long it’s just sec­ond na­ture. But you have to have a re­ally thick skin. And I am so, so thank­ful for my fam­ily. No mat­ter what peo­ple think of me, I know I’m a good per­son. If I stand true to that, and if other peo­ple see it… great. If not, it doesn’t re­ally af­fect me. I have to be very un­der­stand­ing of that – but it took a lot of crit­i­cism to get to that peace­ful place.”

Aus­tralia ed­i­tor-in-chief Ed­wina Mccann has fea­tured Kim Kar­dashian on the cover twice, and sis­ter Kylie’s first ap­pear­ance last Septem­ber re­sulted in the mag­a­zine’s fastest-sell­ing is­sue ever. She tells Stel­lar she be­lieves the sib­lings are “hard­work­ing busi­ness­women build­ing per­sonal em­pires that ri­val some of the big­gest and old­est brands in the world. I have al­ways found the Kar­dashian/ Jen­ners to be po­lite and very pro­fes­sional. For a fam­ily who could buy al­most any­thing they ever wanted, they all seem to pos­sess an ad­mirable work ethic.”
