Kimora Covers Giant Magazine

Ms. Fabulosity, Kimora Lee Simmons, covers the June/July issue of Giant Magazine.

Here’s an excerpt from the cover feature.

Love her or hate her, Kimora Lee Simmons is a force to be reckoned with in the worlds of fashion, beauty and entertainment. Here, the often misunderstood mogul strips down and speaks candidly about her public image, her divorce from Russell Simmons and what it’s like to be a woman on top.

Sitting in the back of her silver Range Rover, Kimora Lee Simmons is wearing an itty-bitty black Victoria’s Secret slip with a cleavage-enhancing, bustier-like bodice. She’s not filming a video or staging some seductive scene for her beau, Academy Award-nominated actor and Calvin Klein underwear model Djimon Hounsou (of Blood Diamond fame).

In the interest of time, the 33-year-old chief creative officer of Phat Fashions (which includes the clothing lines Baby Phat, Phat Farm. Phat Farm Kids and the new juniors’ label Fabulosity) plans to change clothes in the SUV en route to the posh Beverly Hills Hotel, where we’ll chat over lunch.
