Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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!
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..If you feel like a glamorous lifestyle is out of your reach, and you have already made up your mind that you are content with mediocrity, then yeah the book will come off too flamboyant for you..but if you have an open mind, and you don't mind learning something from somebody who indeed has it all, this book will be a great asset. I borrowed this book from the library first, but after reading it, I have just purchased it so that I can refer to it whenever I need that extra "chutzpah" confidence booster. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
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.
