Fashion Forward: Kimora Lee Simmons
She's a former model, fashion maven, TV star and single mom. So what is Kimora Lee Simmons' secret to always looking fabulous? In tonight's Fashion Forward, the Nightteam's Diana Diaz shows us, as the star paid a visit to South Florida.
WSVN -- From her hit reality TV series, to the edgy fashions from her popular Baby Phat line. Kimora Lee Simmons brings new meaning to the word "fabulous."
Kimora Lee Simmons: "I want everyone to be fabulous and feel fabulous and look fabulous."
She recently brought her fabulousness to Macy's at the Aventura Mall, greeting fans and signing autographs as well as hosting a toy donation for some of South Florida's kids in need.
Kimora Lee Simmons: "I think that's one of the most important things certainly in my life that I do."
This former model, fashion mogul and single mom sure has a lot on her plate. Her popular Baby Phat line with the famous cat logo has expanded to include shoes, bags and perfume. So what does Simmons see as some of the hottest trends for the new year?
Kimora Lee Simmons: "Celebrating some of the European trends, the blousier tops, the leggings, some of the logos are surprisingly becoming a little bit smaller."
Simmons says she loves designing clothes for "real" women who want to feel sexy but with a price tag that won't break the bank.
Kimora Lee Simmons: "It's more of an interpretation from the runway to reality, and all women want a little taste of that."
She also has a successful children's line of clothing. Her two daughters help her design, and her reality show "Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane" is entering its second season on E! and the Style Network, so we asked Simmons to give us a sneak peek!
Kimora Lee Simmons: "In the new season I would like to again show some other sides of the fabulous life, which is about the children and the community and giving back and of course just being fabulous."
And all her South Florida fans feel the same way, so what's her secret to doing it all and looking fabulous at the same time?
Kimora Lee Simmons: "I took lots of vitamins today. A, C and E is what you should take."
Simmons also revealed to us she is coming up with a new, even lower-priced line every fashionable girl can afford.
