Being Kylie Jenner’s best friend is a covetable position to be in. After all, the 23 year old is the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, is invited to every A-list party and actually seems like a fun person to be around.

Jordyn Woods was the youngest of the Kardashian clan’s BFF but after a spectacular and very public fall from grace, somebody else stepped into her designer shoes to trot next to Kylie in every pap shot and Insta post.

Her name is Anastasia ‘Stassie’ Karanikolaou, a blonde bombshell and influencer in her own right, who has over 9.1 million followers on the gram.

Who is Stassie Karanikolaou?

Stassie was born 9 June 1997, and grew up in California near both the Kardashians and Will Smith’s family. She is of Greek descent and comes from money because her father is World Financial Group broker Periklis Nikolaos Karanikolaou.

As for work, Stassie is primarily an influencer, and is very active on platforms such as Instagram, Twitter and Vine.

However, she is particularly popular on YouTube, where she has over 526k followers, and opens up about everything from surgery (which she has had a lot of) to friendships and she also shares footage of her trips and nights out with Kylie and the rest of the gang.

Stassie also has a successful modelling career having starred in campaigns for Pretty Little Thing and Khloe Kardashian’s clothing line, Good American. She has also done editorial shoots in publications such as Teen Vogue.

How did she meet Kylie?

Stassie and Kylie have not just been friends since the Jordyn fall-out; they have actually been close for a very long time. In fact they pretty much grew up together, and have been good pals since they were 11 years old and they attended the same high school.

How did they become best friends?

Although they clearly always ran in the same circles, their friendship has really strengthened in the last few years. Back in February 2019, Stassie posted on Instagram about how proud she was of Kylie after she had given birth to baby daughter, Stormi.

Their BFF status was firmly cemented, however, when Kylie threw the blonde a 'Stassie Baby' birthday bash in June 2019, and went on to thank her for being such a great friend on Instagram. The pair also have matching tattoos that read ‘Stormi’ on the backs of their arms. Jordyn who?
