NUVOtv's hit reality show Curvy Girls is back for season two, delving deeper into the personal and professional lives of plus-size models Denise, Lornalitz, Ivory and Rosie.
In season two, the curvy girls will welcome special celebrity guests who mentor and guide them and offer up advice and tips on their careers and personal lives, including Kimora Lee, who appears on the season premiere!
In the clip, Kimora, a former model who now heads a fashion empire, gives some sound advice to the girls and shares her own personal story of getting discovered by legendary Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.
"I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, nobody looked like me. ... My whole life was where do I fit in, and how do I fit in?," she recalls. "I was discovered at 13 by Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel and that was my big break. But it took someone like Karl to say, 'No, no, no this girl, even though she's different than everyone else, she's a little wiry' -- I was taller than everyone else, I looked really different -- 'She's the face of the future, the 21st century.'"
Check out the video to hear Kimora's advice on what should be in a model's "lookbook."
