"Fashion has been my life for over 20 years. My exciting professional journey from runway model to Creative Director has afforded me the opportunity to experience first-hand what women really want; how they want to look and feel in their clothes. By making designer fashion accessible to every fashionista regardless of budget, I want to help women feel confident and beautiful."
Savvy businesswoman, top model, television personality, and, according to Forbes Magazine, one of the "hardest working mothers in Hollywood," Kimora Lee Simmons joined JustFab in 2011 as President and Creative Director.
The St. Louis-native began her career as a fashion model at age 13, when she was discovered by industry scouts at a Midwest model search. She was soon whisked away to Paris and earned an exclusive contract with Chanel. In addition to being a muse to legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld, Kimora has landed on the covers and pages of Vogue, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar, and modeled for some of the world's most influential designers such as Christian Dior, Roberto Cavalli and Yves Saint Laurent.
In 1999, Kimora launched the fashion phenomenon known as Baby Phat with then-husband Russell Lee Simmons. As the face of the brand and the visionary behind it, Kimora grew the company into a premier collection for women. In 2012 Kimora parted ways with Baby Phat to focus on new fashion and beauty endeavors.
Kimora shares her fast-paced life in The Style Network's top-rated show "Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane," also syndicated on E! Television Network and viewed in more than 200 countries. As JustFab President & Creative, the fashion-savvy mogul strives to reinvent the shopping experience for fashionistas everywhere. Kimora lives in Los Angeles with her daughters, Aoki Lee and Ming Lee Simmons, son, Kenzo Lee Hounsou, and husband, Academy Award-nominated actor, Djimon Hounsou.

Chic, feminine and flirty - it spans eras. I love to mix high-end fashion with trendy pieces and classic staples so I can wear them again and again.
High-end pieces mixed with classic staples add depth to your look. You should always have these wardrobe essentials in your closet: a pair of stilettos (to add sexiness to any outfit), a pair of jeans that fit you perfectly, a timeless handbag to go with everything, and a fabulous piece of jewelry (a little sparkle goes a long way).
