Kim Kardashian shared two throwback photos 20 years apart earlier this month in celebration of National Best Friend Day.
A post shared to Instagram on the page of KKW Beauty — Kim’s own makeup brand — showed the 40-year-old reality TV star and one of her best friends, Allison Statter, in the same pose but 20 years apart.
Allison Statter is seen in the photos kissing Kim Kardashian on the cheek as she pouts for the camera.
The second photo showed the two women in the same pose but taken last year at an event, around 20 years on from when the first picture was taken.
The caption for the post invited followers to enter a new competition to mark National Best Friend Day, where five people and their friends would have the chance to win a lip crayon from the KKW X ALLISON line — a partnership between Kim and Allison.
The caption read: “It’s #NationalBestFriendDay and we want to give 5 of you and your besties the KKW X ALLISON Lip Crayons! To enter:

Entry closes on Thursday, 6.10 at 11:59 p.m. PT. No purchase necessary. Must be 18+ to enter. Winners will be contacted via DM on Friday, 6.11 to claim their prize.”
Their collaboration on the makeup line recently has meant that Kim’s friendship with Allison has come into the spotlight more than usual, but it certainly is not a new friendship for the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
In 2009, Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom married in Beverly Hills at the home of Irving Ozoff, Allison’s music producer father.
Moreover, Kim and Allison have known each other since school, where Allison would use “any and all of Kim’s eye shadows,” according to an interview last year.
Kim said she remembers getting ready for prom with Allison since they grew up together in Beverly Hills.
The reality TV star and beauty mogul said: “I always remember Allison and I getting ready for prom.”
The friend added: “I would use any and all of Kim’s eye shadows. Kim used to match her makeup to whatever she was wearing.”
Allison Statter went on to set up her own media relations business, Blended Strategy Group, which provides services for high-end companies such as Tiffany & Co.
While KKW Beauty chose to highlight Allison Statter, other celebrity friends on Kim’s close list include La La Anthony, Nikki Lund, and Paris Hilton.
And last Tuesday, Kim surprised many of her fans with a happy birthday post to her estranged husband, Kanye West, 44, and she captioned a family photo with their four children, “happy birthday; love u for life.”
