Kim Kardashian guest stars at Harvard Business School
Harvard Business School students were treated to an A-list guest speaker when Kim Kardashian stopped by the Ivy League school on Friday.
The 42-year-old reality TV icon attended Boston Business School for a two-hour session during which she addressed her success with her popular shapewear brand, SKIMS, according to TMZ.
Sources told the publication that Kim was involved in the speech from her SKIMS co-founder Jens Grede.
The duo targeted students in a course titled “Moving Beyond Direct-to-Consumer,” led by Harvard professors Len Schlesinger and Ayelet Israeli, along with executive fellow Matt Higgins.

Video of Kim strutting down a business school hallway and taken by an employee showed that she was surrounded by a film crew.
According to People, the footage will be used for a storyline on their Hulu series The Kardashians.
The shapewear mogul reportedly had a huge crowd of students and viewers — as well as reporters and camera crews — following her as she moved around campus.
It seems to have been a big surprise for students and staff, which explains the large crowd of shocked onlookers.

Kim probably wanted to keep the event as low-key as possible to prevent hordes of onlookers descending on the business school.
Video captured by a staff member and shared on Twitter shows Kim dressed for business, in a smart pinstriped suit with wide-leg pants that fell to the floor and covered her black pointy-toed shoes.
She wore it with a matching jacket and had a chic black leather duster over her shoulders.

Update: “She spoke about what she had been working on and about this new private equity firm and SKIMS,” one attendee told People. “She sat apart but was still involved in the lecture”
“She talked about what she had been working on and about this new private equity firm and SKIMS,” one attendee told People.
Although she was the star of the lesson, she appears to have been more of a supporting character for the lecture.
“She sat a little apart but was still involved in the presentation,” added the attendee.
The same contestant was blown away after taking a closer look at Kim.
“She really did look just like she did on TV. She was stunning and was exactly as pictured. That’s exactly what she looks like,” they gushed. “As she left, she waved at us and said hello as she walked out.”
Another video showed Kim waving to fans as she was quickly escorted into a waiting SUV after completing her presentation.
Sightseeing: Before her trip to Harvard, the black-haired beauty reportedly visited the controversial bronze sculpture The Embrace, which pays homage to Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King; seen on 15.01
Before her trip to Harvard, the black-haired beauty reportedly visited the controversial bronze sculpture, The Embrace.
The artwork has been attacked by some critics and visitors, who complained that it does not accurately depict his subjects, Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife Coretta Scott King, while others complained that its semi-abstract design almost goes from there phallic affects certain angles.
The sculpture depicts two arms embracing and was taken from a famous photograph of kings embracing, although only their arms were used in the design.
Kim was reportedly kept busy for the duration of her trip. She frequented the Equinox Gym at the Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common for her regular morning workout with a stairmaster.
However, it was a short visit. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star flew in Thursday night, and by Friday afternoon she was back on a private jet to her home in Los Angeles.
