The Party Crasher - Kimora Lee Simmons and Paulina Rubio Headline Market America
Miami’s American Airlines Arena was packed with fans and industry professionals for a weekend-long event featuring two divalicious ladies in town to take part in the annual Market America Leadership Conference. Capitalizing on the ultimate launch opportunity, mama mogul Kimora Lee Simmons unveiled her new skincare line “Fabulosity” (available through marketamerica.com), featuring body butter, cleanser, sugar scrub and more. Killing two birds with one stone, Simmons was also on hand filming segments for an upcoming episode of Life In The Fab Lane while publicizing a new venture with Google underway (and then she announced her candidacy for 2012...). Simmons and her body butter weren’t the only stars who took center stage at the Market America showcase. Out of hiding, a polished Paulina Rubio performed hits in front of a crowd 23,000 strong in an effort to drive traffic from the Latino market. It’s too bad Tiger Woods wasn’t there promoting TW Design golf courses, then the conference would have been complete. -- Tracy Block
