Kim Kardashian enlists celebrity pals for Skims one-year anniversary campaign

Kim Kardashian is marking the one-year anniversary of Skims by enlisted several A-list pals, and a handful of her customers, to show off the brand’s most popular designs in a star-studded campaign. 

The 39-year-old marked the milestone occasion by posing up for a striking shoot that sees her showing off her iconic curves in a nude shapewear design, while lounging in a room that is filled with pieces from the brand’s many collections. 

Indeed, in an homage to all that the brand has achieved in the last 12 months, each of the individual shoots that make up the complete campaign see Kim’s chosen models posing alongside decorations or items that represent a piece of the label’s history, be it a previous campaign, or an old design.

And in order to best showcase the brand’s ethos – that ‘Skims is for everybody’ – Kim made sure to call upon a diverse group of models to pose in her designs, enlisting both celebrity friends, and consumers, for the special shoot. 

As well as the reality star, the campaign also features the likes of Lisa Rinna’s model daughters, Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray Hamlin, TV star La La Anthony, Bruce Willis’ daughter Rumer, actress Jodie Turner Smith – who is married to Joshua Jackson – model Yovanna Ventura, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit star Precious Lee, and Kourtney Kardashian’s TikTok star pal Addison Rae. 

However, the campaign also features eight Skims customers, who were invited to step into the spotlight for the groundbreaking shoot – which is the first of its kind for the brand, and was inspired, Kim explained in a statement, by the many fans who have taken to social media to share images of themselves proudly rocking her designs. 

Each model was set up in a special set for their shoot – which was masterminded by Italian photographer Vanessa Beecroft – with each person given a unique setting that paid tribute to the brand’s first year in business. 

For example, teenage social media sensation Addison, 19 – who has sky-rocketed to fame over the past few months thanks both to her impressive TikTok following and her close friendship with Kim’s sister Kourtney, 41 – is seen modeling a black bra and boybriefs while standing atop a bed that has been covered in sheets printed with Skims imagery. 

Photos from the brand’s previous campaigns also cover the walls and the ceiling of the room in tribute to Skims’ beginnings. In a nod to the teen’s online stardom, a copy of Kim’s iconic selfie book can be seen propped up on the bedside table.

‘It’s wild to think that it’s already been one year since we launched Skims,’ the mother-of-four said. 

‘I’m eternally grateful for the love and support that our customers have shown both me and the brand. I’ve loved seeing everyone’s photos in Skims and reading the comments on social media, and I wanted to use this time, the campaign, and customer gifting to really say thank you. 

‘The customers are our inspiration for developing new ideas and collections and there is so much more to come. I can’t wait to share it all and continue to grow our amazing community.’

Kim also sent special anniversary gifts to 100 hand-picked customers, who received Skims shapewear designs, special anniversary merchandise – including a unique Skims-branded Barbie doll which featured in the campaign.
