The promotional shoot couldn’t have been more fitting for the Self-centered author as it featured photos of her taking selfies in the living room of her Calabasas mansion.

Her takeover of the fashion industry didn’t stop there. In May, Kardashian caused an uproar when she attended the Met Gala in Marilyn Monroe’s historic Bob Mackie dress.

” I respect [Marilyn] “said the businesswoman during an appearance on Today in June. “I understand how much this dress means to American history and with the [Met] theme being American, I thought there was more American than Marilyn Monroe singing “Happy Birthday” to the President of the United States.
When co-presenter Hoda Kotb Asked Kardashian to respond to claims the dress was ‘ruined’, she shook her head and said, ‘No…Ripley’s [and I] worked so well together. There were handlers and gloves that put it on me.
