Overview

Fabulosity (n): 1: a state of everything that is fabulous 2: a quality ascribed to that which expresses glamour, style, charisma, power, and heart

Kimora Lee Simmons knows what it means to have fabulosity -- and she wants to tell you how to get it.

In this empowering new book, Kimora -- a top model, wife of hip-hop legend Russell Simmons, mother to two daughters, a national media presence, and president and creative director of the multimillion-dollar Baby Phat company -- shares her personal secrets of success and fabulosity.

Kimora knows that in today’s ultracompetitive world, it’s not enough for women just to be smart or dress well. With too much to do and competition everywhere, the savvy woman must know how to combine feminine glamour with professional power, business ambition with personal values, and confidence with heart. Kimora is the living picture of all these things.

What are Kimora’s secrets to achieving her goals, her signature fabulosity? One is her ability to identify and build upon her own unique talents and strengths. In Kimora’s case, she brilliantly combined the two worlds she knows best -- the high fashion and hip-hop scenes -- to create Baby Phat, her ultrasuccessful hip-hop inspired lifestyle brand.

How do you uncover and develop your own special talents? Kimora shares her step-by-step guide to achieving your wildest dreams, including her 16 laws of success, which cover everything you need to become the woman you want to be.

Whether you’re college-educated or street smart, just starting out or at the top of your game, Fabulosity has something to say to you. Learn how to cultivate Power, Independence, Confidence, and Positivity in everything you do, whether it’s finding Mr. Right, snagging that corner office, or rocking the latest fashion trend. Packed with useful lessons and Kimora’s personal tips, this book will be your instruction manual to empowering yourself, turning your individual talents into permanent success, and unleashing your inner fabulosity.

This books shows you how to map out the things that you want in life. The people that you surround yourself with can and will affect the way that you feel about yourself. Did you know that? This book pinpoints that and many other things that someone may not have known about themselves. She offers lifestyle advice as well as fashion and wellness tips. Kimora helps that shy girl in the corner realease her inner flyy self. Thumbs up! I love it! People always ask to borrow it and I make up corny excuses beacuse I'd rather them get their own and not mess up mine. LOL. I give it THAT MUCH respect. I love the cover! It's beautiful inside and out! I can't tell you everything sorry. Buy it and see why a lot of people love it. I love women who empower other women.

I absolutely LOVED this book! Not only did Kimora share ways on how to be fabulous and fashionable, but she also empowers women. The dialogue is so reminiscent of her demeanor and it feels like she is talking directly to you. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be inspired by greatness.

This book is great. I love how she's encouraging women to put themselves out there instead of shrinking in the corner while someone else does all the work. She's crazy, but love her or hate her, her book is on point.

Honey, I have been using the word Fabulosity for 3 years to describe myself..I heard it on the radio coming home from work....not knowing that it came from Kimora , who has always been my style maven... Upon finding out about the release of this book... I preordered it 3 weeks in advance, just because...and I am glad I did!! It truly is the definition of fabulousness, self-confidence and glamour... The book is designed for any girl needing a mirror put in front of her face to remind her of her power and worth. Kimora doesn't want her reader to pattern herself after her, but rather to use her as an example of a person considered less than special, less than beautiful by others and decided on her own that their opinion didn't define her self-image, but she did, with flair... This is the same emotion Kimora wants to evoke in her readers that regardless of what someone else says is beauty, it truly is in the eyes of the beholder, One's self....With Love Enjoy! A HUGE FAN

Kimora Lee Simmons is so dope to me! I love her! At first I was among some of the people who doubted her talents and thought nothing of her except of the fact that she was a trophy wife. Can we say hater )? But I digress. After reading the article with her inthe new issue of Vibe Vixen. I fell in love with her exotic beauty, candor, & style. I don't have her book yet but after reading the sample chapter & knowing that my girl is a taurus like me. I am definitely going to the nearest bookstore to find out how I too can become an enterprising entrepreneur living the fabulous life!

Kimora not only discusses fashion design in this book but she goes on to address topics such as business, inner beauty, outer beauty, self image, self promotion and relationships. I truely recommend this book to any woman from any background. This is a woman handbook to life.

I cannot say how much I am loving this book. My heart has been pumping with each page as I become more and more excited to live out my own version of life and success. I truly love this book and I just purchased it today! She isn't bragging in this book saying, 'Look at me and what I have, haha you only wish you could have it!' She is saying that you can have whatever you TRULY want and if you TRULY want it then you can HAVE it. I don't have children but I am going to make sure to include this book in my list of books that I feel offer timeless life lessons for my future children. I'm also 'Blasian' so I love how she embraces both aspects of her culture. This book shows her critics/haters that she isn't 'Just Russell's wife!'

Kimora is Fabulous and believe it or not there are other women who are fabulous. I am one of those women and I say it's about time we stop down playing ourselves to make others feel good. This book is platinum in my book.

Just loved this book. Kimora is so positive and energetic. I bought two copies for my Daughter (one in print and one for her Nook). Kimora lives her life on a grand scale and does it graciously and with a sense of humor. Her relationship with her children is exemplary. I recommend this book to any woman of any age. It''s upbeat and will leave you feeling good.

I will be honest, I didn't really like Kimora at all. Her high scale personality on her show really threw me off and I never liked her. But a friend of mine insisted that I read the book and begged me to give her a chance. So I did. And I can say the book is fantastic. I don't think her marrying a rich man had absolutly anything to with her success. It may have helped but even without him, she would have made it fine (she was already a well known model). Her book should be read by any woman out there that has either questioned her "fabulosity" or is down right out of her womenhood. This book highly boosted my convidence and the way I look at myself. I love this book and I have changed what I think about Kimora. If i ever meet her, I will love to praise her for this book. Please ladies that like to hate, if you didn't read the book don't talk crap! And if you read the book and you're still talking crap then you are obviously not getting what the book is about and you are jealous (sorry ladies lets just be real).
