Kim stole the show in a nearly-naked ensemble that accentuated her hourglass with a trippy design as she joined her sisters at the Santa Monica awards ceremony.

She is variously seen as a feminist-entrepreneur-pop-culture-icon or a late-stage symptom of our society's myriad ills: narcissism, opportunism, unbridled ambition, unchecked capitalism. But behind all the hoopla, there is an actual woman — a physical body where the forces of fame and wealth converge.
