Hey beauty? Introduce yourself.
My name is Kimmik Smith/Kimmi. I am a freelance plus size model born in St. Louis, Mo. Now residing in Nashville, TN. I am a Fashion, Print, Commercial, Glam/Beauty, and Runway Model.

And you are a sexy Plus-Size Model too! What are your measurements?

40/45/56

Yesss Lawd. I lovin that! How long have you been a model?

I have been modeling for about 2 ½ years, and I have worked with some of the best photographers I have worked with Daniels Digital Darkroom, Patrick Collins, David Smith, Patrick Webster, Stephanie Klee, and the list goes on. I also have been blessed to work with DMichelle Designs, Kountry Boy Couture, OVE, God’s Princess (just to name a few) some of the Hottest designers in Nashville, TN.

Nice. And what influeneced you to become a model?

I have always loved fashion!! I really felt like I could model after watching Tocarra Jones on ANTM. I love her, and I adore her. Also, after watching Monique she really was a huge influence for me, b/c she is big and beautiful, and she made me feel good about myself. I also wanted to become a model, b/c when I was growing up I had such low self esteem, and always felt too fat/ugly. Now I feel as if I am a mogul, where I can encourage and motivate young girls. I don’t do this for me, I do it for them. I feel like I have a purpose in this, to up lift young insecure girls.



So what do you feel makes you stand out from other models?

There are a lot of things that makes me stand out from other models. 1st I am very HUMBLE. There a lot of models who get a gig or 2 and feel like they are above others, 2nd I also have a Great heart. I give love and I support others NO HATE from me..3rd I am very dependable, motivated, and hungry. My drive is crazy!!

So for the million dollar question. The one that I know the fellows wanna know! ARE YOU SINGLE?

LOL..I am single. I honestly can say I am single, b/c I am afraid of relationships. I was really hurt so it takes a lot for me to give my heart and love to a man. I have a lot of love to give, and I am just waiting on that special person to give all my love to.

So let the fellows know whats your hobbies and interest?

My hobbies are reading, shopping, dancing, laughing, playing cards, and spending time with my love ones when time permits.

Do you feel like you have alot of competition in your field?

No I don’t feel like it’s hard for me to keep up with other models. I am in my own lane. I focus on me, if I see another model doing something big, or get a gig over me I congratulate and keep it moving. I believe that there is enough good to go to everyone, and its all about timing and faith.


I know you have some shout outs?

YES I would love to say Thank you to my Modeling coach S. Hunter she believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, My big cousin Delores Cox, I love you sooo much, thank you for all you have done for me, talking to me, and helping me wipe all my tears when I was down, to all the photographers/designers who I have worked with and my family and friends!!
