Kendall & Kylie Are Basically Taking Over the World

TIME just released its annual list of 100 Most Influential Teens this year, and we’re not surprised to find that Kendall and Kylie Jenner are both on it. According to TIME, the considerations to make the list include accolades, global impact and newsworthiness. 

So why did Kylie make the list? She’s the “most watched teenager in the world,” with 60 million social media followers across all the platforms. TIME cites the #KylieJennerLipChallenge as a key example of her influence. “Everything I do, I always start these huge trends,” Jenner said, knowingly, in an interview with the publication. But TIME was even more impressed by what Jenner hopes her fame will accomplish. “I just want to inspire my fans to be whoever they want to be,” she said, “because that’s what I’ve always done.” Preach, girl.

And it goes without saying that her sister—she of the impressive “fashion resume” and the subject of the most liked Instagram photo of all time—was listed as well. The photo of her heart-patterned hair got more than 3 million likes.

And the Jenner girls are in great company; among them on the list are Malia Obama, Zendaya, Jaden Smith, and Malala Yousafzai
