Hate it or love it, 2014 was a big year for the Kardashians. Women's Wear Daily breaks down the LA-based reality TV family's notable achievements, from Kendall Jenner walking at fashion week to Kimye landing a Vogue cover to Kylie Jenner launching a hair extension line. The fashion trade journal also highlighted Kim K's NSFW cover for Paper: "the most remarkable thing was not Kim's oiled-up bare butt and breasts, or her ability to balance a Champagne coup on her rear end or be a good sport about the numerous memes that resulted. It was the fact that legendary art director Jean-Paul Goude wanted to work with her." The piece ends with a reminder that although Kim and her family are "a camp event and a celebrity and that's all," Kendall is a legit supermodel. [WWD; Previously]
