In the early days of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, it felt like we rarely saw Kylie Jenner without seeing her BFF and sidekick, Anastasia Karanikolauo — better known as Stassie! The two were inseparable in their childhood long before Jordyn Woods stepped into the spotlight alongside the 20-year-old cosmetics mogul.
These days, it seems like Ky doesn’t go anywhere without Jordyn — and with a new ride-or-die in her life, many are wondering if Ky is still BFFs with Stas! But worry not — it would appear that their lifelong friendship is still very much going strong!
Since launching Kylie Cosmetics, Stassie has been featured in countless campaigns alongside Jordyn and other members of Kylie’s squad, like Justine Skye. And it’s clear that the love between these two besties goes both ways; back in April, Kylie walked the red carpet to celebrate the launch of Stassie’s collaboration with Kardashian-loved brand PrettyLittleThing.

She and Kylie go WAAAAY back
According to a 2015 interview, they met at a mutual friends house when they were only kids (unlike the very old 19- and 20-year-olds they are today). Initially, they only hung out in groups, but eventually the two ladies began hanging out one-on-one and it wasn't long before they started doing everything together and became inseparable. At one point, Ky joked that Stas used to drive Kris Jenner crazy because she was always over!
Kylie credits Stassie for keeping her weird
In an interview with Teen Vogue, Kylie gushed, “You’ve been the most consistent and loyal friend in my life. And I feel like without you, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Because I wouldn’t be weird anymoe. I’d be trying to be normal.” So sweet!
She works as a model
Which we all know is code for “being Kylie Jenner’s friend professionally.” Between that and all the ~social influencing~ she’s doing, girlfriend is likely making a pretty penny!
She’s been candid about her plastic surgery.
Unlike some other people we know… She great a breast lift because she was self conscious of her “sagging” breasts. She explained her decision to be candid about going under the knife, saying, “I was very open to sharing — plastic surgery is nothing to be ashamed of.” You tell ‘em, girl!
