Gracing the January 2012 cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore, renowned Korean and African-American supermodel Kimora Lee Simmons shows off her to-die-for body reminding everyone she still has it! She shocked everyone in April when she hit the red carpet 25 lbs lighter and with this newest issue, those 25lbs are still nowhere to be found. Fitting perfectly in vibrant designer fashion pieces, Simmons displays her revamped body image: toned, fit and curvy. As seen on her reality television show Life in the Fab Lane, it has been a contant weight battle for the fashion mogul/model. Today, she has kicked her diet demons to the curb and attributes and maintains her new slender physique to eating more healthy food, monitoring her portion intake and maintaining an active lifestyle with her three kids. Kimora Lee Simmons was also spotted trotting around the sandy shores of St. Bart’s for the Christmas holiday in a revealing two-piece black bikini – abs fully in tact! You go girl.
