I was fortunate enough to meet and interview rock heiress Sophie Simmons at a recent event in LA. Sophie is the daughter of Gene Simmons and co-star of 2 reality shows- Gene Simmons Family Jewels that followed the lives of Gene Simmons and his family and featured a teenaged Sophie (which I totally used to watch) and Shannon & Sophie, which focuses on the relationship between Sophie and her mom Shannon Tweed.
At the young age of 22 Sophie Simmons has already turned herself into quite a trail blazer. She has been very vocal about the portrayal of unrealistic body images in the media. At a size 8/10 Sophie is proud of her body & flaws and refuses to conform. I’m not gonna lie, that’s something that I myself have struggled with my whole entire life so it’s really amazing to see women like Sophie embracing their curves and encouraging other women to follow suit.
She recently launched her own clothing line that caters to those inbetween sizes (between the “regular” sizes and plus sizes) that most of us are lost in. That’s why I knew I wanted to feature her as part of my inspirational women series.

How amazing is she? Definitely an inspiration!
