Someone gave me Fabulisity for my birthday. I read it but didn't have any high expectations. Well, I'm happy to say that this book by Kimora Lee Simmons is funny, informative and really very interesting. Kimora, clearly is not the bubble headed, insignificant person that we thought she was.

The book has excellent advice about money management (I'm not kidding), and tells the stone cold truth about the modeling and fashion industries. I'm not saying that I'd like Kimora if I met her or that I wouldn't be miserable working for her but I really enjoyed the book.

Now I must say that I would not give Fabulisity to a teenaged girl because of the language issues and the world view but it's fine for adults. Also, I have to point out that what Kimora calls being assertive would probably get you in a heap of trouble with your female co-workers in most jobs outside of New York City Other than that, Fabulosity is better than most of the self help books for young women on the market right now.

Congratulations to Mrs. Simmons.

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.

When this book first came out, I expected it to be a guide on how to look fabulous for every occasion. I was okay with that but not rushing out to get it or anything. Well I finally did get around to reading it and WOW!

This is good stuff--no lie! There are tons of reasons for people to hate on Kimora but you gotta give credit where credit is due. I can't imagine her spending a lot of time writing but yet every word in this book sounds like it's coming out of her mouth. And she's not spewing a whole lot of nonsense but yet some GREAT advice for young adults trying to make it BIG in this world. I love this book and I have recommended it to others. Would I work for Kimora? Heck no but I love her advice LOL!

Before I read Fabulosity, I wasn't a big Kimora fan, but I have nothing but respect for her after reading this book. Yes, she talks a lot about fashion, and her extravagant lifestyle..and what else can you expect..Authors talk about what they know..and Kimora knows what it means to be fabulous. The people that complain about the book are dumb for expecting anything less than a woman talking about what she knows. But intertwined with her lavishness, the book was surprising down to earth! It wasnt some stuff old etiquette, how-to-do book that was filled with nonsense. She speaks like a diva, but its with genuine candor. How do I put this?..Its really a lifestyle manual...how to develop yourself as a goddess from the inside out...professionally and personally..Its a real book. However if you are not in the demographic she is addressing, you won't get it..and you will think the book is a waste, b/c you won't get it. This book is for the urban, chic, young woman who is a product of the hip hop culture but has the style and grace of high fashion(or even just the desire to be that)...if you are more comfortable with the non-urban, old world culture...THEN THIS IS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU..there are plenty of other books available that appeal to your demographic.
I'll admit, because of the negative reviews I read on here and elsewhere, I had very low expectations of "Fabulosity"..and even her flashy persona. People said, oh you can't apply what Kimora says in real life, she's just rambles on about her life and how great it is...That is not the case, AT ALL. You just have to know how to apply her principles to your own life, even if you aren't in the fashion industry. Its really just about learning how to know yourself, love yourself, carry yourself, etc. Oh and its about a state of mind too..

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.
