Before the world started keeping up with the Kardashians—before there was a full family of sisters to follow, actually—there was Kourtney Kardashian, the first daughter born to the Kardashian/Jenner family. And yet, there was a time when Kourtney was just a girl living rather anonymously in Los Angeles.
Of course, life is a little different now. A unique alchemy of reality television and social media has made her a household name, and in just under a year, her lifestyle brand, Poosh, has shown that wellness can be sexy and wholesome. (Which, come to think about it, is also a suitable description of a woman who brews herbal tea while baring her back in a Roberto Cavalli gown.) She’s at once thoughtful, playful, maternal, and alluring—which is why she's one of the women who piques our collective curiosity over and over again.
Here, she speaks with Rose Inc. about her hopes for the future, her ambitions for Poosh, and her take on internet comments. Try to keep up.
