Who Is Jordyn Woods? Kylie Jenner's BFF Is More Than Just Her Sidekick On Social Media
For the most part, Kylie Jenner's life is an open book. She's been starring on Keeping Up With The Kardashians since it began in 2007. With famous parents, she's no stranger to the spotlight. Plus, she uses social media to really let fans know about her life — it's almost like her followers are part of her inner circle too. One of Jenner's go-to ways of doing this is Snapchat, where she's constantly goofing off with her boyfriend Tyga and their friends. One recurring person in her Snap stories is her bestie, Jordyn Woods. She's also a regular on Jenner's Instagram and app. So much so, that she's amassed her own following.
While you may be able to recite the entire Kardashian-Jenner family tree by heart, you may not be up-to-speed about all of the 18-year-old's BFFs. Understandably so, considering Jenner is incredibly popular. Still, Woods is one of her buddies, who's making a name for herself beyond her friendship with Jenner. She's even been signed to a major modeling agency.
If you're like me and feel a bit out of the loop, I've rounded up everything you need to know about Woods. She's not going anywhere anytime soon, and if anything, she's only going to get more famous.
1. Her Mom Is An LA Socialite
Woods' mother Elizabeth is a popular Los Angeles socialite, according to Entertainment Tonight. On her Instagram page, it says she's a Talent/Brand Manager at Mixed Image Media and Woods Marketing Group. Just like Jenner's mom Kris, Elizabeth seems like such a proud momager.
2. She Has A Modeling Career
Woods is signed to Wilhelmina International's Curve, their division for plus-size models. Speaking to Teen Vogue in December 2015, Woods talked about her goals and said,
"There’s not a lot of clothes out there for girls that are bigger, there’s not a lot of trendy things out there, and I want to change the way people look at the plus size industry."
3. She's Incredibly Body Positive
Tying into the above, messages about body positivity can be found on her Instagram and Twitter. Her message about "loving yourself and loving your body" is on-point. In the aforementioned Teen Vogue interview, Woods also said,
"I’m just naturally a super curvy girl and I feel like my body will never be size 0. There’s so many people out there just like me."
She couldn't be more right! Embracing who you are is so important.
4. Her Nails Are Always Flawless
One of the best things about Woods' Instagram account (which has 725,000 followers, by the way) is her manicures. Sure, there's plenty of other great content to scroll through, but when it comes to her fingertips, she's always nailing it.
5. She Attended Kimye's Wedding
According to Entertainment Tonight, Woods was a guest at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's fairytale wedding in Italy in May 2014. This proves just how close she is with Jenner and the rest of the famous fam.
6. She Has Several Tattoos
Similar to her pal Jenner, Woods is no stranger to getting inked. In fact, her brother is a tattoo artist and the one responsible for some of her artwork that she's posted photos to on her Instagram, including the above roman numeral neck tattoo from December 2015. As she wrote in the caption, "Just landed in LA and decided to go get tatted by my brother @jwoodzart... Wouldn't want anyone else to do this one for me. 23 forever."
7. She's Friends With The Smiths
Woods and Jenner are both friends with the Smith kids, Willow and Jaden. Jaden even took over her Instagram to post about their friendship, as seen above. Not only is she close with them, but she refers to Will Smith as an uncle. Their connection traces back to her late father, who worked on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air with Will as a sound engineer.
How sweet is that throwback photo? I guess Jenner isn't Woods' only famous connection. And before you know it, she'll probably become a household name herself.
