She's officially moved on from the Kardashian clan! Back in November 2017, Kim Kardashian made the difficult decision to fire her personal assistant of four years, Stephanie Shepherd, saying during an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that Steph's close bond with sister Kourtney Kardashian was "unprofessional."
A few months later, it's looking like she has a brand new, much more glamorous gig. The former assistant is officially a model! Steph recently launched a new campaign with the jewelry brand 8 Other Reasons called "WOMAN," and the pics are seriously stunning. She's a total natural.
"Introducing WOMAN ft @steph_shep," the brand wrote on its Instagram page alongside some gorgeous campaign photos of the new model. Steph also took to her personal Instagram to share the pics, and she's clearly proud of this new endeavor. The collection includes a variety of statement earrings and rings with prices ranging from $27 to $72. So, pretty affordable!
"I think when you're an assistant everyone wants to know that, like: 'What the heck are you gonna do after this?' And I'm just like, what do you mean?" Steph told Refinery29 back during her assistant days. "And then that starts to put the pressure on me and makes me freak out a little and start to wonder, where is this going? Oh God, how will I ever leave this family? But I've realized that I just need to utilize this position and learn as much from all of these experiences and grow as much as I can. Honestly, I'm just going to see where it takes me. I'm learning. I'm helping Kim Kardashian run her empire. I'm also building something for myself."
Now, just a few months later, she's taking what she learned from the Kardashians and putting it toward her own empire! Is she about to take over the jewelry and fashion world? If so, she certainly learned from the best.
While she may have cut professional ties with the high profile family, Steph has reportedly still been in contact with the Kardashians. After spending every single day with them for four years, she was bound to have formed some close bonds. "They still hang out and are friends, but they have gone their separate ways and are not working together anymore," an insider revealed to Us Weekly. We wonder what Kim thinks of her new campaign?!
