Kylie Jenner, the 26-year-old reality TV star, has been awarded the WSJ Innovator Awards for Brand Innovator of the Year.
The award to Jenner was presented by designer Haider Ackermann, who had worked with the Kylie Cosmetics mogul on her look for the Met Gala 2023. Ackermann playfully mentioned Jenner’s «very attractive lover,» referring to Timothy Chalamet.
The star of «Dune» attended a dinner with Jenner and Akerman. In her brief speech, Jenner expressed her gratitude to WSJ for the honor. «I’ve always loved beauty and fashion and the recognition of the success of my brands that I’ve created, and my new brand, Khy, which was just launched recently,» she said.
Jenner was named Brand Innovator of the Year after she introduced her new clothing line, Khy, in the November issue of the magazine.
She noted that the collection is «truly inspired by her personal wardrobe and the various moods I go through.»
