    As Kim Kardashian’s confidante and PR guru Jonathan Cheban gets set to enter the Big Brother house (of all places?!) we’re taking a look at the team behind the Kardashian machine. Because it takes a village, you know?

    Jonathan Cheban
    Entrepreneur and PR guru Jonathan is one of Kim’s long-term BFFs, meeting at a mutual friend’s dinner party before reality TV was even born. Reportedly worth over £5million, his business portfolio spans restaurants, clothing lines and PR companies alike. He has a girlfriend, Anat Popovsky, who will be cheering him on during CBB from the outside world, alongside Kim.

    Monica Rose
    As the stylist to all Kardashians, Jenners, Hadids and other associated parties, Monica Rose is a very busy woman. You’ll regularly hear Kourtney or Kylie talking about their dressing racks on KUWTK, and the outfit options on display are all pulled together by none other than Ms Rose. Red carpet outfits, holiday wardrobes, tours and everyday looks – she makes the designer calls and presents the looks for every occasion.

    Monica’s best trick, however, is nailing each sister’s individual style. Off-duty supermodel denim for Kendall? Check. Old-Hollywood vintage sequins for Kylie? Done. Body-con dresses and billowing duster coats for Kim? It’s all in a day’s work.

    Mario Dedivanovic
    He’s the king of contouring, a god of the smokey eye. And from Kim to Kylie, every sister has enlisted the help of super Mario for a shoot, red carpet appearance or, um, everyday strobing crisis of some sort. A crucial member of the #GlamSquad, Mario first met Kim 10 years ago, when he was booked to do her make up for the cover of a magazine called Social Life. They’ve since created the look that broke the internet, and now he even gives masterclasses to teach us mere mortals how to get the look.

    Jen Atkin
    Those long Kardashian locks don’t blowdry themselves, you know? Their go-to hairstylist is ManeAddicts founder Jen, whose other regular clients include Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Alba and Katy Perry. Another critical piece of info? Jen, along with Mario, Kris, Jonathan and Monica, has been immortalised in avatar form in the best-selling Kim Kardashian Hollywood game. Now is that #SquadGoals or what?
