Kimora Lee Simmons was quite a lovable creature back in 1990.
Well-spoken, grounded, and unshaped by the cliche’s of working model divatude….
I can’t get over how adorable she was!
I found this video after rummaging through my personal collections and figured it’d be a treat for model historian types.
It popped up after downloading and saving a ridiculously disturbing mountain dew commercial that I viewed on Youtube yesterday- via Clutch Mag.
Am I the only one who always wondered where all of Kimora’s modeling photos were?
The rare video includes endless photos of then 15 year old stunner Kimora Lee Perkins, who we now obviously know as Kimora Lee Simmons.
The bubbly interviewer highlights all sorts of Kimora’s fashion industry activities and liaisons, including how she balances a six figure modeling career with high school.
If your a follower of models and fashion, then you’ll attest that Kimora’s photos scream 2008 Chanel Iman.

Kimora also talked about how easy it is t get caught up in the industry with drugs, and dating older men to get ahead.
Oh how i wish the 15 year olds whom I once spotted in the club held this high of an IQ.
Peep Kimora’s full video below:
At 1:50, the reporter says something along the lines of how Kimora steers clear of males that were known as ‘model groupies'(Russell).
Ha, I guess the Simmons charm was too irresistible.
