Kim Kardashian SURPRISES fans at her SKIMS pop-up shop in Los Angeles. Kim Kardashian caused quite a frenzy on Wednesday afternoon as she made a surprise visit to her SKIMS pop-up shop at the Grove shopping center in Los Angeles, California.
The 40-year-old KUWTK star, who launched the successful shapewear line in September of 2019, posed for a slew of snapshots in front of a giant SKIMS backdrop upon arrival.
Kim Kardashian’s public outing comes just days after she was officially declared a ‘billionaire’ by Forbes following the success of her reality show and business ventures. Rumer Willis happened to stop by the SKIMS pop-up on Wednesday, which prompted her to praise Kim on her Instagram Story. Kim’s presence at the SKIMS pop-up on Wednesday comes just one day after she followed in estranged husband Kanye’s footsteps and made it onto the Forbes Billionaires List for the first time.
The ex couple’s split was revealed in January before Kim filed for divorce in February, leading to the rapper, 43, reportedly ‘cutting-out’ his estranged wife and insisting they only communicate through security.

Kim put her famous assets on display in an olive toned SKIMS bodysuit and a pair of striking snakeskin trousers which highlighted her peachy posterior.
The brunette beauty completed her ensemble by slipping her feet into a pair of open toed heels which displayed her white pedicure. Kim looked radiant and glowing following her recent Palm Springs getaway with her mother Kris Jenner, as well as her sisters Kylie and Khloe. The SKIMS CEO wore her lengthy raven tresses in voluminous waves that flowed down her back and chest from a neat middle parting.
Amplifying her enviable features, Kim undoubtedly decked out her eyelids and plump pout with products from her KKW Beauty cosmetics line. As she posed for photos in front of her massive SKIMS backdrop, the reality star royalty showcased her bright white manicure and matching pedicure.
Kim Kardashian appeared to be in a jovial mood as she smiled for the cameras, despite currently being in the midst of a divorce from her estranged husband Kanye West. In between shots, the reality TV sensation could be seen getting her make-up touched up by one of her go-to artists. Making sure her hair remained intact through the duration of the event, one of Kim’s hair techs rushed to her side to give her strands some extra bounce. After posing up a storm, the entrepreneur retrieved a nude face mask – courtesy of SKIMS – and carefully placed it over her mouth and nose as not to disrupt her make-up.
Along with her team of hair stylists and makeup artists, the estranged wife of Kanye West was joined by a team of security guards that escorted her around the shopping center. As she passed excited fans and photographers, the KKW Beauty founder offered friendly waves and beamed for the cameras. The SKIMS pop-up shop featured attendants rocking the brand’s latest pieces in a nude tone that coordinated with the shop’s exterior.
Patrons were able to survey all of the line’s popular pieces through glass displays in order to keep things sanitary amid the coronavirus crisis. Orders were packaged in sleek SKIMS boxes, which coordinated with the colors chosen by customers.
During her visit to the Grove, Kardashian was seen entering through a Nordstrom’s EBar, which leads directly into the department store. As Kim strutted around the Grove, fans and shoppers could be seen snapping photos and videos of the star while she made her surprise debut.
She has a $225million stake in Skims and in January last year, sold 20 percent of KKW Beauty to Coty for $200million while retaining 72 percent of the company – a stake worth $500million. The reality TV star also earns at least $10million a year through her TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians (now in its last season), ad campaigns, social media posts and through her game app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. She also holds an impressive stock portfolio that includes shares in Amazon and Disney. Kanye gave her the portfolio as a Christmas gift in 2017. At the time, it was worth $100,000.
The E! star recently filed a trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office to trademark her new venture ‘SKKN BY KIM’. According to TMZ, Kim is looking to release a range of skincare products for skin, hair, nails, fragrances and cosmetics.
