During her sit-down interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Kimora Lee Simmons explained how much she’s changed and gives inspiration to her female fans.
“I tell all my young fans out there, the ones who are tweeting, trying to connect. You can have anything you want in this world, but you have to work for it. And you have to pay for it. There are no shortcuts. Here’s rule number one, honey. ‘You do not let yourself be defined by a man ever.’ And I’ve had some really strong male influences in my life, like Karl (Lagerfeld) when I was walking for Chanel, and both my ex and my next, as I call them are incredibly ‘alpha male’ men… But it’s like I’ve always said, to my girlfriends on the coast, to the young kids I meet, at the end of the day, you are accountable: for your success, your failures, your life! Whatever man is in your life, Karl, Russell, Djimon …Barack, I don’t care, do not be waiting to pass the buck to anyone, take control of your destiny. You’re the only one who can.”
She also added that “Im not the woman I was before. I’ve grown. You’ve grown… This generation is more embracing of change.”
