A new match? Matt James‘ Bachelor season is fast approaching — and we can’t wait to meet contestant Kit Keenan. The 21-year-old New York City native is sure to catch the reality TV heartthrob’s eye when season 25 begins. But what do we already know about Kit? Read on to find out more about the socialite and student.
Kit Has a Fashionable and Famous Mama
The starlet’s mother is none other than designer Cynthia Rowley, which makes her the offspring of fashion royalty. The pair are often featured on Kit’s Instagram page, so it seems the stylish duo is very close. In fact, when the ladies were asked about the one thing they couldn’t travel without while attending Popsugar Play/Ground in July 2019, Cynthia said, “Can I say each other?” So cute.
Kit and Her Mom Are Podcast Cohosts
Kit and Cynthia, 62, have such a tight bond, they even cohost a podcast together. In their series, Ageless, the mother-daughter team interview powerful women about how they started their businesses and how they maintain healthy lifestyles.
Kit Is a College Girl
The podcaster is currently a student at New York University, where she is finishing her senior year of schooling. Kit is an NYC native, so it seems she and Matt will have a lot to talk about, between the city itself and her experiences at the prestigious institute of higher education.
Kit Is a Fashion Designer Herself
She got it from her mama! The NYU girl has a hoodie brand called KIT, in which she collaborates with artists to make trendy sweatshirts. Her latest project features a design by artist Wes Lang — and her sweaters have been seen on A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Moss.
Kit Is an Influencer
With a whopping 45,500 followers on Instagram, Kit is a bonafide social media influencer. The blonde beauty shares step-by-step workout routines, skincare tips, street style snaps and perfectly curated food photos to her thousands of supporters regularly — and each of her posts has the perfect preset to make her pictures uniform and perfect.
Plus, the proud fashion child is constantly repping her mother’s brand on her Instagram account. Almost daily, fans can catch Kit rocking pieces from Cynthia Rowley’s ready-to-wear line or even custom pieces designed especially for her.
