Who is Kaila Methven? KFC heiress lands multi-million lingerie deal to treat partygoers with sexy EDM theme
Like the rest of us, looks like KFC heiress Kaila Methven is absolutely done with 2020 and is ready to ring in 2021 in the sexiest way possible — literally. The self-anointed KFC heiress and couture lingerie designer took to Instagram to tease her latest EDM-inspired lingerie line, Madame Special K, specially designed for music-festival goers.
Kaila, who owns the fashion and lingerie company Madame Methven, is ready to drop her multi-million dollar lingerie line in the spring of 2021. The line will also include a range of party wear for men and women. The designer is excited to see partygoers add their own unique spins to her creations and make the most of her latest line. But this isn't the first time her work has been in the spotlight. With a large number of celebs donning her creations, here's all you need to know about Kaila.
She calls herself 'KFC Heiress' for a very reason
Kaila belongs to the Methven family, whose family-owned business, Rainbow Chicken Unlimited, supplied 90% of KFC's poultry at one time. The South African poultry farm was started by Stanely Methven, Kaila's grandfather, in 1960. He began his business by selling poultry from his car and grew his empire through the years. By the 1980s, Rainbow Chicken Unlimited was KFC's primary poultry supplier.
She's earned her fashion degrees from Paris
Kaila claims that she's always had an eye for fashion and haute couture since a young age. She went on to formally train at the ESMOD institute and then earned a full masters degree from The International Fashion Academy of Paris.
Her current net worth is...
The heiress' current family net worth stands at a whopping $600M. But Kaila has been focused on building her business empire. She's definitely owning her path to success, seeing that her festival wear line landed her a partnership with EDM.com to market and promote her new line, which is projected to bring in $5M in sales.
She's had a range of celebs rock her designs
From the Kardashians, Katharine McPhee, Apollonian Kotero, Demi Lovato to the entire cast of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills', it is safe to say that Kaila's couture lingerie is extremely popular among celebrities. Her work has also been featured in a range of magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and Elle. And now, with her new line aimed at the festival and party circuit, who knows who we might see in a Madame Special K look.
We might see her take on the silver screen soon
If you follow her on Instagram, you know that Kaila's life is all sorts of glamorous. And if Kris Jenner has taught us anything, it's that personas like her make for perfectly good reality tv. Looks like Kaila heard the message loud and clear. She's now reportedly in negotiations with a major network for her very own reality TV series. While Covid-19 might have dampened those plans this year, next year might just bring in some fun and sexy surprises.
