TIME Magazine sized up contenders by looking at their global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news.  For its Third Annual unranked roundup, model/author/host, Chrissy Teigen, was chosen for her accessibility and ability to be “real.”  Katy Perry offers another version of real — during a 96-hour livestream on YouTube — and Kim Kardashian-West shares just about everything she wants us to see.  Rihanna won our applause by taking on body-shamers, we were intrigued by Iraqi-American beauty blogger and makeup mogul, Huda Kattan, who peddles her beauty line in interesting venues, ranging from Dubai vending machines to Sephora stores worldwide.  Its no surprise that best-selling author, J.K. Rowling appeared, but 16-year-old “nugg-ernut,” Cater Wilkerson, shocked us with his pleas for chicken nuggets (reaching nearly 3.7 million people!).  Canadian model and YouTube star, Gigi Gorgeous, joined this year’s ranks, as did Joanne The Scammer aka Branden Miller.  Korean boy-band, BTS, entertained us and we learned how to lip-synch with Baby Ariel’s (aka Ariel Martin) app.

     Promoting her solo cosmetics endeavor, KKW Beauty, Kim Kardashian West was immediately besieged with accusations of intentionally darkening her skin (aka wearing blackface) to promote the brand.  Speaking with the New York Times on Monday, the reality star defended her image.  “I would obviously never want to offend anyone,” she said.  “I used an amazing photographer and a team of people. I was really tan when we shot the images, and it might be that the contrast was off. But I showed the image to many people, to many in the business. No one brought that to our attention.”  Attention was exactly what the 36-year-old reality star received from the photo (left), so the KKW Beauty team quickly rectified the image.  “Definitely I have learned from it,” West added.   KKW Beauty launches Wednesday, June 21st with its $48 Crème Contour And Highlight Kit.
