Kenya: Kimora Lee Finally Coming to Kenya in June

American Kimora Lee Simmons will finally be coming to Kenya for the Fashion and Beauty(FAB) June series.

"Kimora is very keen on visiting Kenya and we hope we can fly her in by June of course depending on the outcome of the March elections," said a source who preferred anonymity.

FAB caters to the need for all things related to fashion and beauty. The exhibition will be a forum to discover and interact with the various industry professionals and service providers. Simmons has appeared in small roles in television and films including Beauty Shop, Brown Sugar, and Waist Deep. She has also appeared in music videos for Ginuwine and Usher.

In 2003, Simmons signed on as one of the judges on America's Next Top Model, Cycle 1. She was scheduled to return to the show as a judge starting with cycle 14. However, she changed her plans and did not return to the show as judge. She has been a co-host of Sony Television's syndicated talk show Life and Style.

She also has her reality TV show, Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane, which premiered on Style Network. The show chronicles her daily life and routine as a mother and then-CEO of Phat Fashions.
