Would you believe it? Kourtney Kardashian is 40. She’s older than you and looks younger than you—how is it possible? We just don’t know (or do we?), but somehow, it is. And it’s time to celebrate.
Kourtney Kardashian is one of the most enduring personalities on Keeping up with the Kardashians—she’s grown the least, and we love her for it. From cutting Kim down to size on multiple occasions (cc: ugly crying and “there’s people that are dying”) to complete disregard of work to the launch of mysterious editorial platform ‘Poosh,’ Kardashian has entertained us for any years without asking for anything in return…except for our unwavering investment in Manuka honey.
Hence, we’ve rounded up the best Kourtney Kardashian moments—style and otherwise—from which you can select your favorite. Pick your Kourtney Kardashian fighter below, to be your love and leading light.
1. Reality Check Icon
One of the most seminal moments in pop culture history, Kourtney checked Kim to hell and back after she lost her earrings during the family’s Bora Bora getaway. It was one of the few times the Kardashians have paused to consider their lives of extraordinary excess, and Kourtney was the culprit. This Kourtney would call out anyone for not treating you the way you deserve, and be mercilessly cutting when you think you look good but don’t (which sometimes we need).

Ah, that expression of medium-rare disapproval. That’s what Kourtney, the ultimate working girl, will shoot you every time you’re slacking. This is someone you want in your corner, just don’t expect her to deliver the same self-motivation on the job—this woman was born to be in the boss’ chair and has no time for the trenches.

3. Cougar Goddess
Cougar goddess Kourtney is the cool, popular girl to protect you from bullies. She is unfazed by rumors about who she’s sleeping with or how she spends her time. You could do well to take a page out of her book when it comes to remaining completely unfazed and scoring your dream man—even if he is 15 years younger.
