Savvy businesswoman, author, philanthropist, producer, top model, television personality, Tony Award winner and — according to Forbes Magazine — Kimora Lee Simmons is one of the top “hardest working mothers in Hollywood.” Her energetic personality and stunning magnificence are familiar around the world, but these attributes only scratch the surface of one of the most dynamic and powerful businesswomen in fashion and entertainment.
