Kylie Jenner's Exclusive Inner Circle, Explained


Put the phrases "Kylie Jenner" and "best friends" into a sentence and most people who hear it will likely think of Jordyn Woods. But if the beauty mogul's short-lived reality show The Life of Kylie taught us anything before its untimely end, it's that Kylie has a vast network of friends in her tight-knit circle.

Let's break down Kylie's best friends, glam squad members, and friends-of-friends you're likely to see at Kylie's next big party (hopefully not a Handmaid's Tale-themed shindig).

Mariya Ivankovitser

Heather Sanders

Relationship: Friend

Heather Sanders's name started circulating following the Jordyn-Tristan scandal as people began noticing that Kylie started spending a lot more time with her other best friend after the Jordyn fallout.

Kylie and Heather met at Kendall Jenner's 16th birthday celebration, where Tyga (Kylie's ex) was performing. Heather was dating King Trell, Tyga's friend.

Anastasia Karanikolaou

Relationship: Friend

Since the Jordyn-Kylie fallout, Anastasia "Stassie" Karanikolaou has also been more of a presence in Kylie's life (and Instagram feed). Earlier this year, Kylie threw Stassie a big birthday party, and the two even got matching tattoos in honor of baby Stormi.

Victoria Villaroel

Relationship: Assistant

Ariel Tejada

Relationship: Makeup artist

Yris Palmer

Relationship: Friend

Palmer, the CEO of Star Lash Extensions, was one of the attendees at Kylie's very private baby shower back in 2018.

Tokyo Stylez

Relationship: Wig maker

Tokyo Stylez is responsible for a lot of Kylie's best hair looks — she apparently owns "at least 100" of his creations. If that doesn't forge a bond of friendship, we don't know what will.

Tiffany Sorya

Relationship: Friend

Sorya was a tutor to both Kylie and Kendall, and seems to have remained tight with Jenners.

Hrush Achemyan

Relationship: Makeup artist

Makeup artist to the Kardashian-Jenner family Hrush Achemyan is also a close friend, and was one of the people present for Kylie's baby shower.

Kylie and Jaden Smith met in middle school, and while they don't seem to see as much of each other these days, he did bring another important person into her life: Jordyn Woods.
