Taylor Swift, Oprah and Kim Kardashianm have made it to Forbes’ 2023 list of America’s richest self-made women.

Oprah, 69, placed 13th on the overall list with a fortune of $2.5 billion. The media mogul recently produced a musical remake of the 1985 film “The Color Purple,” which was directed by Steven Spielberg and is slated for a December theatrical release.  

The talk show host starred in the original movie, and her performance earned her an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress. 

Kardashian, 42, secured the 21st spot with a net worth of $1.2 billion. “The Kardashians” star co-owns the SKIMS shapewear brand, which is valued at $3.2 billion.  

Last year, Kardashian launched her skincare line SKKN by Kim. She also owns the lucrative cosmetics brand KKW Beauty. The reality star’s younger sister, Kylie Jenner, who has amassed a fortune of $680 million at age 25 with the success of her beauty line Kylie Cosmetics, is ranked 38th.
