Here's part of an article by Lise Hand from www.nydailynews.com

How to be the most fabulous
in the room ...
1. Heels, heels, heels. My motto: 4 inches, no less.
2. Carry an extra-large bag in cherry, emerald or orange — not beige, not camel and definitely not black.
3. Wear a dramatic coat that almost demands someone help you put it on and take it off.
4. Laugh a lot. It makes everybody wonder if it's more fun to be at your party.
5. Turn up the music in every room you enter.

10 most Kimorrific items
in the closet ...

1. Four-inch leopard-print Manolos with rhinestones and chains.
2. Orange ostrich-skin Birkin bag.
3. Knee-high leopard-skin boots.
4. Knee-high snakeskin boots.
5. Extra-wide mink and leather belt (worn with minis).
6. Caramel mink bolero jacket.
7. Versace bag with gold hardware and gilt trim.
8. Silver Gucci sandals with lattice of interlocking rhinestone G's over entire foot.
9. Cosabella hot-pink panties (pictured).
10. 30-carat "Asscher-cut" diamond ring.

Kimora's go-everywhere fashion emergency kit:

Nude thongs for white and pale-colored skirts and pants
Nipple petals for wearing under sheer tops
Band-Aids for protection from rhinestone-covered sandals
Double-stick tape for fastening down revealing tops
Deodorant (the kind that doesn't leave white powder on your clothes)
Baby Phat Goddess fragrance
Super-shiny lip gloss

'Fabulosity' top five foods

1. Acal juice. Like pomegranate juice, but even better
2. Dark green vegetables like spinach, kale, collard greens, watercress. I fight them sometimes, but really, let's not be babies here. We need this stuff!
3. Pre-made smoothies. Those $3 ones you buy at the supermarket
4. Dark chocolate. Good for your heart — in moderation
5. Green tea. I have my chef make me pitchers of iced green tea.

Kimora's fashion don'ts

Baggy, sloppy T-shirts
Stripper tops that leave your belly hanging out
Broomstick skirts — hippie-girl skirts
Anything see-through. That is too much.
Distressed anything — no distressed jeans, leathers or torn punk-rock T-shirts
Anything with a sports team logo
Conservative pantsuits. My pantsuits are coral-pink Versace corduroy — and sexy as hell.
Wide-brimmed sun hats, trilbies and top hats. No, no no!

The Wit and Wisdom of Kimora
"If you're shy, get the hell over it: You're slamming the door in your own face."

"Be a gold-medal multitasker. You should be able to discuss the new Ludacris video while correcting the merchandising spreadsheets, picking the right shade of snakeskin for next season's mini-purses and catching the dog at the same time!"

"There'd never been a clothing line made by a young woman like me: a multiethnic woman who has one foot in Gucci and one foot in the ghetto."

"In almost any situation, it is far more devastating to keep your icy cool while the other person gets herself in a flush-cheeked, teary-eyed hot mess yelling in your face."

"Be stingy with your money! Don't splurge at the mall — and definitely don't give it to your boyfriend!"

"I love when people walk into my house and start grinning, 'This is too much — this is so you!' Why give people brown cardboard when you can give them embroidered, crystal-flecked organza?"

"It's not always what you know, but who you know. Get out and meet people."

"Gatecrash the right parties. You may not get the invites to the hot parties in your field, yet. But just like there's always a back door into a career, there's always a back door into a party."

"We as women analyze every little thing that comes out of men's mouths, but sometimes you've got to just pay their craziness no heed. Just pretend it's their 'time of the month' and think about the dry-cleaning you've got to pick up."

"I tell young girls all the time, Go for the guys who are more serious, distinguished. The hot-model types, they're too pretty, and too wet behind the ears. Besides, do you want a guy who takes longer to get ready than you?"
"All women are goddesses, and it's just a matter of letting that goddess-power shine — and if you don't try to be the biggest and baddest damn goddess you can be, you are selling yourself short."

From Gawker:

... the book is apparently 256 pages long. This raises the fascinating question of what comes pages 2 through 256, after, “Marry a really rich guy, and have no taste.” ...

A dedicated follower of fashion ...

It's quite.....I don't even know the word for it but some of those are alright....I quite like the bit about 'and if you don't try to be the biggest and baddest damn goddess you can be, you are selling yourself short.' not in a diva context but i think it's just saying all women have something worthy inside of them and don't sell yourself short on it.

That's the best quote I've heard in a long time! I like her.

this isn't even funny, this woman has just mentioned every nouveau riche cliche and trait right there! leave alone the fact that this is garbage..g-a-r-b-a-g-e.

what worries me is how many girls (and boys) are going to read this and want to be her because she is "fabulous". people like her pollute fashion...

fashion and pop shouldn't be anywhere near each other. becuse when pop culture does touch fashion it always seems to touch the versace/cavalli side of it add some glitter, obnoxious behaviour, some boob and the product are these girls and boys who are...just tragic

some of them...you just wanna take a sponge to their face, cover up their nipples (maybe those nipple petals will help) and tell them to try again...

ahhh...my eye is twitching

"...buttoned up to the breast, and made with wings, welts, and pinions on the shoulder points, as mans apparel is for all the world...and though this be a kinde of attire appropriate onely to man, yet they blush not to wear it..."
