This was not a bad book. A lot of it was good, HOWEVER...
If I read one more generic "you go girl!", "unleash your inner diva/goddess!" I will jump off a cliff. I could read those any time, so when I buy a book from someone as glam as Kimora, you better believe I am expecting to hear details on how she remains so fab. What products does she use? What are her real thoughts and beauty secrets? How does she get so confident? This book was WAY too vanilla. It was as if she was trying not to offend anyone and was too afraid to write what she really thought. Example: Any time Kimora writes something like "Walk into a room like you own the damn place"- she will then take away from that statement and immediately follow it with "I am not saying be too overly cocky, I am just saying to be positive and confident." I wanted to hear her real thoughts and it was clear she was either too afraid to write them or advised not to write them, probably so she wouldn't affect her business in a negative way. Maybe she will put out a better book when she is through with Baby Phat. Kimora, I love you girl, but this was not quite fabulous enough.

I wish I had read this book in my late teens. So many life lessons about confidence, getting ahead, and other power moves that Kimora touches on in the book, I had to learn the hard way. Her book is a straight from the hip book of advice and anecdotes that are fun to read. For those just starting to look for their path in life, especially those who look up to Kimora, it's an inspiring read. For those who are a little farther along in life, it can still be a reminder of the sexy inner confidence we must maintain.

Kimora's personality is over the top, and that personality exudes through the book. Whether or not it works for you is up to your taste. Personally, I liked the no-nonsense approach.

I will start out by saying I wasn't a huge fan of hers because she seemed snotty to me. But I read the reviews and saw it at walmart for $13 so I bought it. It was a fun read and very down to earth, yes she wears designer clothes and has a big house but there is no reason to be mad at her about it. I appreciated reading an inspirational book written by someone from my own generation. I read a lot of success books and they are usually from older white men, sometimes black and sometimes asian but all older men.

I read the book in about a week and I am glad I did. She was a normal girl that found success in something she loves.

Format: Paperback
Well, first off, I had always been captivated by Kimora, and figured if anyone knows about being fabulous and could teach us a thing or two, it would be her. But after a couple chapters into the book, I felt that this was more about her out to clearly promote a certain image of herself, one apart from Russell, that she wants us all to have for some reason.... (grooming us for the ensuing divorce from him?).
She carefully monitored her words through this,& repeatedly pounded an image she wanted to project of having "already made it big" in her teenage years WAAAY before her marriage to Russell Simmons. Oddly, the only reference of a modeling year that she refers to several times in the book was ..."when she was 13" . She made sure to try and appear to keep it real by injecting some experiences of human vulnerablity, and gave a few small glimpses (detailed descriptions) of her monied world, but spent much time referring back and repeating about this "great and extensive European $50k-a week modeling career" she supposedly had through high school, and how she learned to: live on her own in France, smartly taking control of her finances, conduct herself in business, and handle life's lessons...all at the age of 13! Hardly believable. Then looking at the provided photos in the book, I found it very curious that there was only 1 of her (pre-Russell Simmons) modeling years, a United Colors of Benneton ad, where she looks like an average pug-nosed teenager. So I Googled about 50 pages of Images for her and still found NOTHING of any modeling photos of her in that decade before marrying him. I'm sure she was beautiful and fabby when they met, and Russell married her and elevated her into his monied life...so what?

Kimora does a great job of explaining her point of view. Its an easy read and easy to relate to. I really enjoy her tips at the end of each chapter. I think she is Fab and so is her book! I will continue to support all that Kimora puts out!!

I'm very impressed with this book. It is well written and thoughtful. It encourages women to tap into the power they have inside and to let their stars shine bright. Not only is it a great self esteem boost but it's funny too!

Since watching her show, 'Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane" on the Style Network, I've become an avid fan of the self-styled, self-proclaimed diva. In the spirit of all things fabulous, I decided to purchase the book thinking it would be as fun and as over-the-top as its spirited author. I was not disappointed. With that said, the book, which the author hopes will serve as a self-help manual-- one that gets you in touch with your inner diva (Be yourself but be a slave to fashion as well.) -- is far too self serving for Simmons, an owner of a clothing/style empire. The message is possibly damaging to her young urban audience who need more lessons on the important of education and the delay of gratification than what shoes go with what purse.
