You may think that Kimora Lee Simmons is just a dumb model — who's (sorta) married to a mogul — who found some unusually canny people to run a business for her. And you'd be totally correct.
On her upcoming humanitarian work in Africa:
I want to go to Africa," Simmons tells [an African lady]. "My husband is going to Africa. And I'm going to come visit your people so that we can talk about fabulosity. You're beautiful! You're fabulous!"
"Lines like MAC and Prescriptives - which really cater their color palette and blending and everything to their multicultural customer - are really, like, my idols."
"I'm really into "Memoirs of a Geisha," and you see how the women were so delicate? It's all about being delicate, ladies."
"You're too young. Go lighter! Go lighter! You don't want to look slutty."
