The Kardashian's were propelled into the public eye during the very public trial of O.J. Simpson, their father, Robert Kardashian, was all over the media. Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003, and the Kardashian family started to rise to fame….
Having now been in the public eye for almost two decades, the Kardashian family have been branded America’s first famous reality family. Majority of the family members have gone on to become owners of global empires within the beauty, fashion and modelling industry.
Who Is Kim Kardashian-West?
Arguably the most famous Kardashian, Kim is 39 and started making a name for herself in the early 200s as a personal stylist to the stars such as Paris Hilton. Featuring on the popular reality TV show, ‘The Simple Life’, Kim shot to fame in 2007 with her own show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ on E! Since then, Kim has gone on to grace the covers of Vogue, Elle, Paper, Harper’s Bazaar and GQ to name a few. She has endorsed many fashion, beauty and health brands and even has her own video game - Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. More recently she has focused on her namesake KKW Beauty and Skims, her own shapewear brand.
Kim has been married three times: First to music producer Damon Thomas for three years in the year 2000, then to basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011 but famously the pair filed for divorce after just 72 days of marriage. Since 2012, she has been married to rapper and long-time friend, Kanye West, making her Kim Kardashian-West. Together they have three children: North West, Saint West and Chicago West.
What Sunglasses Is Kim Kardashian-West Wearing?
Kim's style is ever-evolving and more recently curated by Kayne West. Kim's style used to be quite ordinary but always on trend, in more recent years she has taken more fashion risks with skin-tight dresses, sports-luxe ensembles and some wacky accessories. Kim appears to favour black oversized sunglasses Kim's go-to brands are Porsche Design, CELINE and Givenchy. This year she has been sporting some vintage Chanel and Versace designs but still very much sticking to the bold/block style alternating between black and tortoiseshell frames.

What Sunglasses Is Khloe Kardashian Wearing?
Khloe is probably the biggest risk-taker of the family favouring bold designs, animal prints and bright colours. Her overall style has changed dramatically over the course of KUWTK but her taste in eyewear has always remained true to classic aviators.

Kourtney is the eldest Kardashian sibling at 41. Kourtney Kardashian has three children with her now ex-Scott Disick: Mason, Penelope and Reign. The pair co-parent together although both have new partners, Scott [commonly referred to as ‘The Lord’] is now dating Sofia Richie.
Kourtney is recognised for her health-conscious lifestyle and has positioned herself as the most environmentally conscious member of the Kardashian family. In 2018, Kourtney appeared at a congressional briefing for the nonprofit Environmental Working Group speaking in favour of regulatory reform of the cosmetics industry. In 2019, Kourtney then launched her own lifestyle and wellness site, Poosh, with a stated mission to "educate, motivate, create, and curate a modern lifestyle, achievable by all."
What Sunglasses Is Kourtney Kardashian Wearing?
Kourtney is also partial to a Porsche Design 8478 frame but unlike Kim and Khloe, she often opts for a more slim-line frame like Alain Mikli, Dior and Miu Miu. Kourtney's style is a bit more casual and contemporary, Kourtney is often seen sporting simple t's and jeans which makes her sunglasses really stand out and tie her whole look together. When it comes to a special event though Kourtney really steps up her game and can be seen just as glamorous as her sisters in perfectly tailored suits or flirtatious dresses.
