Fabulosity: What It Is and How to Get It



I've been reading Kimora Lee Simmons' book, Fabulosity: What It Is and How to Get It. I'd been planning to read it for a while. I am a big fan of Kimora's. I love how over-the-top she always is and how fabulously she carries herself. While my style and personality are much more toned down than hers, I love to watch her and see her energy. So I finally picked up the book, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it is about much more than just how to be fabulous on the outside, but how to be fabulous on the inside as well. Within the book, Kimora talks about self-esteem and confidence, work & power, independence, romance, positivity--and several other topics. She speaks from her point of view, but gives some really great tips on living a peaceful and happy lifestyle. At the end of each chapter is a series of quotes from famous models, actors, etc.--generally fabulous people. I thought I would share some of my favorite quotes:

"If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have gotten anywhere." - Marilyn Monroe

"It is a risk, but I believe the best investment you can make in anything is yourself. Invest in yourself, and then back it up. Back it up with what you do." - Iman

"I have no problem with whatever the next big look is. Just don't try to tell me that only one look is beautiful." - Alek Wek

"Don't let anyone tell you that you have to be a certain way. Be unique. Be what you feel." - Melissa Ethridge

"If you've earned a position, be proud of it. Don't hide it. I want to be recognized. When I hear people say, 'There's Joan Crawford!' I turn around and say, 'Hi! How are you?' I never go out unless I look like Joan Crawford the movie star. If you want to see the girl next door, go next door." - Joan Crawford (One of my favorite actresses and style icons! She was always impeccably finished.)



"Look for the woman in the dress. If there is no woman, there is no dress." - Coco Chanel

"I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity--all I hope for in my clothes." - Yves Saint Laurent

"If you haven't cried, your eyes can't be beautiful." - Sophia Loren



Have a fabulous day dolls!!!

  3. I've seen this book before, but never paid much attention to it. For some reason I thought it was an autobiography of sorts. I adore you for posting this; it has convinced me to run out and buy a copy!! :)
